Former LSU QB YA Tittle dies at age of 90”

Former LSU quarterback Y.A. Tittle died on Monday morning at the age of 90, according to a report by the Marshall News Messenger.

One of football's earliest star quarterbacks has passed away. No details were immediately provided.

Tittle never won a championship, but came to personify the competitive spirit of football, thanks to an iconic photo taken by Dozier Mobley during Tittle's final season in 1964. The Giants retired Tittle's No. 14 jersey, and he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1971. He was one of two players in National Football League history to throw for 500 yards and seven touchdowns in a game (Drew Brees, 2015).

Tittle passed for 33,070 yards and 242 touchdowns.

Giants quarteback Y.A. Tittle drops back to pass against the Philadelphia Eagles on November 10, 1963, at Yankee Stadium.

Tittle was later drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in 1951. He then went on to play an incredible 17 National Football League seasons, earning a Pro Bowl berth seven times. Tittle led an offense that featured three future Hall of Fame running backs - Hugh McElhenny, Joe Perry and John Henry Johnson - in what was known as the "Million Dollar Backfield".

Over his pro career, Tittle was selected to seven Pro Bowls (1953, 1954, 1957, 1959, 1961-1963) and was a four-time First-team All-Pro (1957, 1961-1963). He became the Giants' starter in 1961, winning over fans and teammates who had favored 40-year-old Charlie Conerly.
