Greg Landry was born in Nashua, New Hampshire on December 18, 1946, played his college football at the University of Massachusetts, and was the Lions 1st round pick of the 1968 NFL Draft (11th overall).
There's a real simple reason I loved Greg Landry as a kid.
He wore #11, an obvious magical number to me, and when I saw him tossing the old pigskin around, he became my favorite member of the Lions.
👉 Greg would go on to play QB for the old Baltimore Colts, and then the Arizona Wranglers of the USFL.
Greg continued to wear that magical #11.
🤔 Did you have a favorite QB from back in the day that either played in the old USFL, or went on to play for another team?
Did you have a favorite USFL team, like my Michigan Panthers, who won the Inaugural USFL Championship...as well as having the best logo in the league!
🏈 Oh, and, FYI, the QB for the Panthers was Bobby Hebert, who, of course, wore #11.
Have a great weekend of football, and thanks for taking a minute to read my blog.
Play BALL! 🏈
