In his remarkable 17-year professional football career, the great quarterback Y. A. Tittle retired as the NFL’s all-time leader in games played, passing yards, passing touchdowns, attempts, and pass completions. Tittle was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1971, and the New York Giants retired his number 14. The Y. A. initials in his name stand for Yelberton Abraham. One of the greats.
