Sports and Torts: Hall of Famer Hugh McElhenny

Hugh "the King" McElhenny was the Elvis Presley of football -- his electrifying moves left his opponents in a daze. When he retired after the 1964 season, McElhenny was one of only three players to have gained more than 11,000 all-purpose yards. Altogether, on rushing, receiving, kickoff returns, punt returns, and fumble returns, he totaled 11,375 yards — or more than six miles. And , as he tells us in this interview, he took a pay cut to go pro.

Bryiana Noelle
Bryiana Noelle, a 22-year-old beauty pageant coach and costume designer from Los Banos, California, is Playboy’s newest Playmate of the Month in the magazine’s September 2013 issue. The exotic beauty (she’s Filipino, Chinese, Spanish, Native American and Irish) has won many a beauty pageant herself. She was named Miss California Teen in 2010 and Miss Teen of the Nation in 2008. But posing for Playboy came about by chance after being discovered in a West Hollywood restaurant. “I’m used to being sweet, dainty and cookie-cutter cute,” she says, “so I just can’t get over how the girl in these pictures is so sexy, confident and owning it. I must admit it’s lovely to be the ‘seductress’ now. I’m this tiger who’s been caged and is now ready to pounce.” Miss September is a 2009 graduate of Los Banos High School, and currently resides in Los Angeles.

Hugh McElhenny
Hugh McElhenny was to pro football in the 1950s and early 1960s what Elvis Presley was to rock and roll. Known as "The King" (McElhenny that is), he had it all. He was an artist whose electrifying moves left opponents and observers spellbound. Born in Los Angeles in 1928, McElhenny began his football career by rewriting the Pacific Coast Conference's record book. The University of Washington All-American halfback established conference records for yards gained (2,499) and longest punt return (100 yards) and led the conference in scoring in 1950 and 1951. A first-round draft choice of the San Francisco 49ers, McElhenny was an instant hit. His rookie season left sportswriters groping for new superlatives. The versatile back recorded the season's longest run from scrimmage (89 yards), the longest punt return (94 yards), and the top rushing average (7.0 yards per carry). Not surprisingly, he was a unanimous choice for the league's Rookie of the Year honors. Considered the greatest "thrill runner" of his day, McElhenny ran with a tremendously long stride and high knee action. His breakaway speed and unique ability to change direction at will left defenders dazed and confused. In 1961, after nine seasons and five Pro Bowl appearances, McElhenny was pawned off to the expansion Minnesota Vikings. It was, all things considered, his finest season. With the Vikings, he accounted for 1,067 combined yards and made his sixth trip to the Pro Bowl. Two years later, as a member of the New York Giants, McElhenny realized a dream that had thus far escaped him -- playing on a championship team. Although Hugh's knees were already shot, Giants coach Allie Sherman knew he would give the team "his very best," something he did automatically his entire 13-year career. When he retired after the 1964 season, McElhenny was one of only three players to have gained more than 11,000 all-purpose yards.
