Robert "Bob" Stanton Waterfield (July 26, 1920 - March 25, 1983) was an American football player. Waterfield attended Van Nuys High School, in Van Nuys, California and went on to play college football for UCLA. During his senior year at UCLA, he married actress Jane Russell, and led the Bruins to the Pacific Coast Conference football championship. Waterfield's Bruins lost 9-0, in the 1943 Rose Bowl to the University of Georgia. Waterfield then began his NFL career with the Cleveland Rams with their 5th pick in 1944 in the NFL Draft. He started immediately and was taken in quickly by fans, becoming the first ever rookie to win the league's Most Valuable Player and unanimous All-NFL choice. Waterfield ended the season with the NFL Championship game in 1945 where he threw touchdown passes of 37 and 44 yards as the Rams beat the Washington Redskins 15-14.show more
