Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Vito "Babe" Parilli (born May 7, 1929) is a former American football player. Parilli was born in the Pittsburgh industrial suburb of Rochester, Pennsylvania. He attended the University of Kentucky as an All-American starting quarterback for the Wildcats under Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant. After playing for the Cleveland Browns and Green Bay Packers in the National Football League before a one-year stint in the Canadian Football League with the Ottawa Rough Riders, Parilli was picked up by the fledgling American Football League's Oakland Raiders on August 17, 1960 and threw for just over 1,000 yards. On April 4, 1961, he was part of a five-player trade that sent him to the AFL Boston Patriots, and he went on to become one of the AFL's most productive and colorful players. Playing for the Patriots from 1961 through 1966, Parilli finished his career with over 25,000 total yards and 200 touchdowns, ending among the top five quarterbacks in 23 categories such as passing yards, passing touchdowns and rushing yards. Parilli was selected for three All-Star Games.show more
