Alex Webster - 1958 Topps

Alexander “Red” Webster (1931-2001) (HB/FB/Head Coach) was an NFL halfback and fullback who went on to become a head coach – all as a member of the New York Giants organization. Webster first enjoyed football fame as part of the 1948 New Jersey High School State Championship while attending Kearney High School, and then with North Carolina State. Webster was drafted in the 11th round of the 1953 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins, but chose to play in Canada’s Interprovincial Rugby Football Union (IRFU) as a member of the Montreal Alouettes (1953-1954). While with Montreal, he was named an IRFU All-Star (1954) and played in the 1954 Grey Cup. He eventually brought his talents to the NFL, joining the Giants (1955-1964) and becoming one of the most productive and popular players in franchise history. He led the team in rushing (634 yards) his first season on his way to becoming one of the Giants’ biggest stars of the 1950s. He rushed for 4,638 yards, caught 240 passes for 2,679 yards, and scored 56 touchdowns (39 rushing and 17 receiving); Webster also was named to two Pro Bowls (1958, 1961) and ranks in the Top 10 of the Giants’ all-time scoring list with 336 points. Webster eventually became an assistant Giant coach under Allie Sherman and was later promoted to head coach (1969-1973), earning UPI NFL Coach of the Year honors (1970). He resigned with an overall Giant coaching record of 29-40-1.
