Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Melvin Cornell Blount (born April 10, 1948 in Vidalia, Georgia) is a former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive back and six-time All-Pro. He is considered one of the greatest ever to play his position in the NFL. His physical style of play made him one of the most feared defensive backs in the game at a time when pass interference rules were less stringent than they are now. The early years of his life were spent in poverty on a Georgia farm. But by college, Mel was a star in baseball, football, basketball, and track. Upon graduation, he was offered a scholarship to Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. While there, he was a Pro-Scouts All-American pick as both safety and cornerback.show more
