He grew up during the Depression, in a mining camp a few miles outside of Farmington, West Virginia, called Number Nine, and he became one the greatest linebackers in the history of the NFL. He was known as the Man in the Middle, who fought his way to victory on those famed New York giants' teams of the '50s and '60s. From his great rivalries with Jim Brown and Jim Taylor to his hatred of Coach Allie Sherman, to the inside story of "the Greatest Game Ever Played" - the 1958 championship game between the New York Giants and the Baltimore Colts - Huff speaks his mind in this no-holds-barred account that tells you how it is and was. When Sam Huff speaks, whether through a microphone or in this revealing new autobiography, people listen.
In Controlled Violence, legendary football player Sam Huff shares vivid recollections of teammates and rivals that are as close as most of us will ever get to sitting around the locker room or being able to listen to the big guys talk about the legendary wars and warriors of the NFL's fabulous fifties and sixties. In this no-holds barred account, Huff tells you how it is in the professional game of football.
In this autobiography, Sam Huff recounts his journey from coal-country poverty to NFL superstardom. One of the first dominant middle linebackers in history of the NFL, Huff led Gotham's G-Men to an NFL championship his first year and was catapulted into the national consciousness. He was the first NFL player to be featured on the cover of Time magazine, was sent to Vietnam to meet the troops, and he was the subject of the famous 1960 television special "The Violent World of Sam Huff." And all the while Huff's battles on the field raged-with Jim Taylor, Alan Ameche, Jim Brown, and others. Controlled Violence is a walk through the formative years of the NFL, this is also the story of Huff's journey through a life in football, from his early West Virginia days to the heights of New York, from being traded to the Redskins to his life after football, and finding a new home in the announcer's booth, back with his old friend Sonny Jurgensen, spending his Sundays around the game that made him.
