Former New York Giants quarterback Y.A. Tittle has died at age 90, his alma mater, Louisiana State University, confirmed on Monday.

Y.A. Tittle attends a 2014 LSU football game.

Tittle attended LSU and was a first-round pick (No. 6 overall) in the 1948 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Colts. He held National Football League records for passing yards, touchdowns, pass attempts (3,817), completions (2,118), total offense (29,338) and games (176) when he retired.


Tittle led the New York Giants to three straight Eastern Division titles from 1961 through 1963.

Tittle quarterbacked the Tigers for two seasons, running the T-formation, and leading LSU to a record of 16-3-1 during those two seasons.

The picture came after a play where Tittle was hit so hard that he suffered a concussion and a cracked sternum.


Although things didn't work out for the Colts, they worked out for Tittle, who would go on to become a one of the NFL's best players over the final 14 seasons of his career. Tittle told ESPN.com as of late that he wasn't a colossal enthusiast of the photograph.

Before turning professional, the Texas-born quarterback, born Yelberton Abraham Tittle on October 24, 1926, played college football at Louisiana State University.

Tittle retired following the 1964 season with 28,339 yards passing, 212 touchdowns and 221 interceptions. Tittle was named the MVP of a game that ended in a 0-0 tie with Arkansas.
