"Hey, Coach; mebbe one day they'll name a field after ya!"
If you retire from the NFL after 11 seasons and hold 18 records when you do so, yeah, you'll probably be in the Hall of Fame.
That's what Don Hutson did.
Playing for the Green Bay Packers (and famed coach Curly Lambeau, see picture), Hutson not only excelled at receiver, but he also played safety and was the team's kicker for several years.
Think about these stats: 99 receiving touchdowns (a record that stood for 44 seasons), first receiver to surpass 1,000 receiving yards in a season, first to catch more than 50 passes in a season and 881 total points scored.
Not bad at all.
Oh, the guy at the other end of the line for 'Bama did pretty well after his playing days were over in Tuscaloosa too.
