Marion Motley

Marion Motley (June 5, 1920 - June 27, 1999) is the all-time leading rusher for the defunct All America Football Conference and playing for the Cleveland Browns who won all four of the league’s championship titles. Having coached him at the Great Lakes Naval Training Station during World War II, legendary coach Paul Brown recruited motley to join his Cleveland Browns, impressed with his power, speed, durability and passion for the game. Marion Motley was a huge back for his era, at 6’1" and weighing in at 232 pounds, and had the ability to run around or through would-be tacklers as well as a skill for blocker for his Hall of Fame and mobile quarterback Otto Graham. Motley led the NFL in rushing twice in his career, once in longest rushing touchdown, once in touchdowns and guided his Browns team to the league championship game in each of his eight seasons in Cleveland (1946-1953). He played his final season in Pittsburgh (1955). The Browns won four consecutive AAFC (and the only) championships before the league merged with the NFL, then immediately won their first NFL League Championship in 1950. Marion was named to the 1950 pro Bowl and was a two-time NFL All-Pro First Team selection. Marion Motley retired after the 1955 season with 4,720 rushing yards and 31 rushing touchdowns, 1,107 receiving yards and 7 receiving touchdowns. Motley played 106 games, started 46 and scored 39 all-purpose touchdowns for 234 total points. Marion Motley was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1968.
