The Greatest Athlete To Wear #14 {Otto Graham}

The Greatest Athlete To Wear #14 is Otto Graham.

Notable #14’s- The Big O Oscar Robertson has to be a close runner up. One of the ten greatest players in basketball history.  other basketball players-the great Celtic Bob Cousy and Jeff Hornacek. In hockey Theo Fleury, Brendan Shanahan and Dave Keon.

In football- Don Hutson ranks right up there with Jerry Rice as the greatest receiver in NFL history. Dan Fouts, Y.A. Tittle and Kenny Anderson were outstanding quarterbacks. Fouts and Tittle are in the Hall of Fame the underrated Anderson should be.

A number of fine #14’s in baseball. When I think of #14 I think of Pete Rose. Mr. Cub Ernie Banks, Vida Blue, Jim Bunning, Larry Doby, Gil Hodges and Jim Ed Rice also wore #14.

The Greatest #14 is Otto Graham the great Cleveland Browns quarterback. Graham gets the nod over Rose, Robertson and Hutson for one big reason- Graham played 10 seasons and he took the Browns to their league championship game in all ten of those seasons-winning 7 out of 10. Otto Graham has to be on the shortlist of the greatest quarterbacks of all time.
