The Football History Dude – Pudge Heffelfinger – The First Professional Football Player

This episode we fire up the DeLorean and head back to explore the life and career of William “Pudge” Heffelfinger, the First Professional Football Player. He was an excellent guard at Yale University in the late 1800’s, but his biggest contribution to the game of football was being known as the first documented professional football player. Pudge Heffelfinger’s account as the first professional player paved the way to transform the game into what you and I now know as the National Football League. Strap on your seatbelt, and let’s get ready to take this baby up to 88mph.
