Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Robert "Bob" Mann (April 8, 1924 - October 21, 2006) was an American football end. A native of New Bern, North Carolina, Mann played college football at Hampton Institute in 1942 and 1943 and at the University of Michigan in 1944, 1946 and 1947. He broke the Big Ten Conference record for receiving yardage in 1946 and again in 1947. Mann later played professional football in the NFL for the Detroit Lions (1948-1949) and Green Bay Packers (1950-1954). He was the first African-American player for both teams. Mann led the NFL in receiving yardage (1,014 yards) and yards per reception (15.4) in 1949. Mann was asked to take a pay cut after the 1949 season and became a "hold out" when the Lions opened practice in July 1950.show more
