Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James Edwin Otto (born January 5, 1938 in Wausau, Wisconsin) is a former Professional Football center for the Oakland Raiders of the American Football League. Otto played high school football at Wisconsin's Wausau High School, under coach Win Brockmeyer. He then went on to play collegiate football at the University of Miami. In addition to playing offensive center at UM, he also played linebacker on defense. After no National Football League team showed interest in the undersized center, Otto signed with the Oakland Raiders of the new American Football League. He was issued jersey number 50 for the AFL's inaugural season, 1960, but switched to his familiar 00 the next season. The AFL permitted the unusual number because it was a pun on Otto's name (aught-oh). Otto worked diligently to build his body up to his playing weight of 250 pounds.show more
