Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Eugene "Big Daddy" Lipscomb (August 9, 1931 - May 10, 1963) was an American football defensive lineman in the National Football League and a professional wrestler. Born in Uniontown, Alabama, Lipscomb never knew his father, and moved to Detroit with his mother at the age of 3. When he was 11, his mother was murdered in the neighborhood where they lived and he moved in with his maternal grandparents. Lipscomb didn't attend college and was picked up as an undrafted free agent by the Los Angeles Rams. He played for the Rams for three seasons from 1953-1955. He then played for the Baltimore Colts for five seasons. In two of the seasons he played for the Colts, 1958 and 1959, he earned a spot in the Pro Bowl. He then went on to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers for two seasons. During his '59-'60 & '60-'61 off-seasons, Lipscomb worked as a professional wrestler.show more
