Cliff Battles

1935 National Chicle

Clifford Franklin Battles (May 1, 1910 - April 28, 1981) (HB/DB/TB/WB), as a member of the West Virginia Wesleyan College Bobcats, scored seven touchdowns, rushed for 354 yards, returned a kick 91 yards and added 24 receiving yards for a total of 469 all-purpose yards against rival Salem College. An incredible all-around athlete, he earned 15 varsity letters at West Virginia Wesleyan in football (4), track (4), baseball (3), basketball (3) and tennis (1). Battles joined the Boston Braves in 1932, despite receiving more enticing offers from contenders, because Boston offered $25 more per game. In his first season with the Braves, Battles led the league in rushing yards (576), rushing attempts (148) and average yards per game (72.0) as well as yards from scrimmage (636). The Braves became the Redskins in 1933 and continued to improve each year on their winning totals with the help of Battles. Cliff led the league for a second consecutive year in yards from scrimmage in 1933. The 1936 Boston Redskins played in the NFL League Championship game, falling to the Green Bay Packers 21-6. In 1937, the Redskins moved to Washington D.C. and added your rookie Sammy Baugh to run the offense. Cliff Battles again led the NFL in rushing yards (874), attempts (216) yards from scrimmage (955) and average yards per game (87.4) and added most rushing touchdowns (5) to his league-leading list of statistics. The puzzle was complete and the Washington Redskins won their first NFL League Championship in 1937 beating the high-powered Chicago Bears 28-21. Cliff was a three-time NFL All-Pro First Team selection. Cliff Battles finished his career following a contract dispute in 1937 with 3,511 rushing yards, 23 rushing touchdowns and 4,057 yards from scrimmage. He scored 190 points in his career on 31 touchdowns, one filed goal and one extra point. Battles went on to become head coach of Columbia University’s football team from 1938-1943. Cliff Battles was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1968 and the College Football Hall of Fame in 1955.
