Hugh McElhenny - 1958 Topps

Hugh Edward McElhenny (December 31, 1928-) (HB/RB) was the unanimous choice for the 1952 NFL Rookie of the Year Award as he burst onto the scene with the longest run from scrimmage (89 yards), the longest punt return (94 yards) and league leading rushing average (7.0 yards per carry) in his first season. McElhenny starred at Compton Junior College alongside fellow Hall of Famer Joe Perry, leading the Tartars to an undefeated season in 1948. He transferred to the University of Washington and was named an All-American in 1950. The San Francisco 49ers took McElhenny with the ninth overall pick of the 1952 NFL Draft. Known as “The King” or “Hurryin’ Hugh”, McElhenny possessed blazing speed and elusive agility which gave opposing players and would-be tacklers fits. He played nine seasons with the 49ers (1952-1960) before joining the expansion Minnesota Vikings for two seasons (1961-1962). He played his last two seasons with the New York Giants (1963) and the Detroit Lions (1964). McElhenny was named to six NFL Pro Bowls and was a two-time NFL All-Pro First Team selection. In 1963, Hugh was a member of the Giants team that fell to the Chicago Bears, 14-10, in the NFL League Championship game. Hugh McElhenny retired as one of three players to have amassed 11,000 all-purpose yards (11,375) including rushing, receiving, and kickoff, punt, and fumble returns. Hugh finished his career with 5,281 rushing yards and 3,247 receiving yards and 360 total points on 60 touchdowns (38 rushing, 20 receiving and two punt returns). Hugh McElhenny was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1970 and the College Football Hall of Fame in 1981.
