Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jimmy Orr (born October 4, 1935, in Seneca, South Carolina) is a former American Football wide receiver who played for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Colts for 13 seasons from 1958 to 1970. Orr was a two-time Pro Bowler, as a Steeler in 1959 and as a Colt in 1965. Orr played college football at the University of Georgia and was chosen UPI NFL-NFC Rookie of the Year in 1958 in a season in which he had 33 receptions for 910 yards and seven touchdowns and also punted. He played his first three seasons in Pittsburgh and his final 10 in Baltimore. Orr retired in 1970 with exactly 400 career receptions for 7,914 receiving yards and 66 touchdowns. Orr is forever remembered for playing a part in a play in Super Bowl III. On the last play of the first half, Colt quarterback Earl Morrall handed off to Tom Matte, who then threw a lateral back to Morrall in a flea-flicker play. Orr was wide open and waving in the end zone, but Morrall didn't see him (perhaps because Orr was camouflaged by a backdrop of uniformed band members outlining the end zone). Morrall threw instead to fullback Jerry Hill, but the ball was intercepted by New York Jets safety Jim Hudson.show more
