Sam Huff still savoring 72-41 win over Giants 50 years later

MIDDLEBURG, Va. —Mike Chapman, the mustachioed sheriff of Loudoun County, saunters through the swinging doors of the Red Fox Inn & Tavern to the taproom. It is half past 8 a.m. on Veterans Day. Bob Mosier, the sheriff of neighboring Fauquier County, flanks him. The lawmen remove their coats, eye waiters at work and take the measure of the regulars in an eatery that doubles as a gallery decorated with equine art and a painting of a hound with a mouthful of quail. By the back wall is Tyler Gore, an undertaker. On the opposite side of the stone fireplace sits an elderly denizen with a cane. Chapman recognizes the patron as a man with a violent past.

“You’re Sam Huff, right?” Chapman says.

Huff nods. At 82, he is a retired linebacker and member of the Professional Football Hall of Fame, the Hall’s ring glistening on his right hand and doubling as a golden, engraved form of identification. His table is set for three, and his domestic partner, Carol Holden, sits alongside his caregiver as he awaits delivery of the Horseman’s Special, a plate of eggs and breakfast meat with a side of buttered toast. He is dressed in a tweed sport coat over three layers of clothes, blue jeans and brown loafers. A cane balances on the edge of his oak table. Chapman recalls Huff as No. 70 for Washington’s team some 50 miles east on the field at D.C. Stadium a half century ago. Chapman makes reference to the NFL. Huff offers a favorite motto.

“Not For Long,” he says. “Not For Long.”

Huff is in no hurry. He moves deliberately, back in a one-stoplight town of 700 residents for a month after a local judge issued a temporary order that Huff’s daughter Catherine return him to hunt country. She had taken Huff from his estate down Route 50 at Huff Farm and Sporting Life Stable, allegedly telling Holden she was bringing him to a dentist appointment on March 31, four days after Easter. The daughter never returned with her father; Holden filed a petition in Loudoun County Circuit Court. The case relates to Huff’s care and his ability to make decisions as he battles early-onset dementia. Holden says that it’s likely related to Alzheimer’s or chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a degenerative brain disease that medical researchers link to playing football. C.T.E. can only be diagnosed following death, but Huff is slow to recognize friends now. One neighbor notes that he once drove 30 miles past his turn off of the highway to Winchester, Va. Holden, who was out of town at the time, had to talk Huff home over the phone while a Good Samaritan showed him the way, that time. She has been with him more than 30 years now. The legal process is ongoing in court; a mediation hearing with both parties is scheduled for January.

“We hope you’ll have a safe breakfast this morning,” Chapman says.

“When you walk through the doors you’re safe,” Huff says.

Heads turn as others in the eight-table room recognize Huff. Memories come and go. Huff welcomes Gordon Keys, an octogenarian foxhunter and friend, inside.

“What’s new?” Keys says.

“You’re not new,” Huff says.

“No, no, I’m a long ways from being new,” Keys says. “I’m like you.”

“You’re about the same vintage,” Holden says.

Keys mentions past parties at Huff’s house. Quarterback Johnny Unitas and other autumnal legends trekked to the expansive property, and Keys knows how to get Huff going still. Former Giants coach Allie Sherman is a favorite trigger. A mere reference to Sherman, the coach who traded Huff to Washington on April 10, 1964, can alter Huff’s mood. Huff vowed to carry his disdain for Sherman until he died.

“Just hearing the name gives him a fit,” Keys says.

There is an act of vengeance involving Sherman that remains with Huff. It came in a game between Washington and New York on November 27, 1966 — 50 years ago Sunday. In all phases, Washington walloped the Giants, then in the midst of the franchise’s worst season. The score was 69-41 in favor of Washington with seven seconds left when a timeout was called. On the sideline, Huff ordered kicker Charlie Gogolak on the field. A 29-yard kick was good. The final was 72-41; the 113 combined points ranked as the highest scoring game in NFL history. They still do.

“I was there,” Huff says. “I was there.”

Huff watched swings that included a 74-yard reception, a 63-yard rush, a 62-yard fumble return, a 60-yard interception return, a 52-yard punt return and a 1-yard naked bootleg run, all for touchdowns. One running back scored three times; a defensive back crossed the goal line with the ball twice. Each of the 14 extra points were kicked by refugee brothers from Hungary. By game’s end, Washington had bludgeoned the Giants: 10 touchdowns (and a field goal) to six touchdowns, and the total could have been higher. Both kickers missed one extra point each; the Giants missed two field goals. The mark has outlasted all other outcomes since. Huff beams.

“Hell yeah, I remember!” Huff says. “Hell, I scored those points!”

Gore, the undertaker, makes his way to the door, paying his bill as well as the sheriffs’ tab without their knowing it until after he is gone. Huff, meanwhile, balls up his right fist and motions as if punching an opponent’s stomach. He swings in the air.

“Go-go-lak! Go-go-lak!” Huff says. “I put it right in their gut.”

Check the box score; cull the reels. Cans containing footage are stored inside the NFL Films offices in Mount Laurel, N.J. Drive into the corporate park, beneath Sudden Death Alley’s overpass on One Sabol Way, and past a statue of Steve Sabol, the son of the company’s founder, Ed, that stands by an entryway where a myriad of Emmy statuettes crowd the shelves. Steve Sabol holds a camera on his shoulder in a bronzed pose, and the 1966 game is one of the first contests the unit recorded. The cameramen were on the field and high above. Two copies are still kept: one with previously unseen video, the other with plays that aired on “The Game of the Week.” It was an easy selection. The other eight teams combined for 114 points that week.

“The greatest assault on the NFL record books took place before a jammed mob of delirious fans,” says Jack Whitaker, the CBS sportscaster, in the opening.

There were 50,439 witnesses at D.C. Stadium. It was 42 degrees out; shadows stretched across the playing surface. Huff, dressed in home burgundy and gold with a feathered spear emblazoned on each side of his helmet, performed calisthenics, and spoke with radio broadcaster Kyle Rote prior to the game. On air, Huff promised that Washington’s offense, led by Sonny Jurgensen, would put up 60 points. Huff also considered the Giants, en route to yielding a league record for points (501) to be “the worst excuse for a professional football team.” Huff, who was 29 when he was traded south, informed Washington coach Otto Graham, “We’re gonna kill ’em.”

Personal score settling was just about the only motivation either team carried into that game. The first Super Bowl was scheduled to be contested at season’s end, but neither unit was going to reach the playoffs. The Giants, then 1-8-1, had beaten Washington, 13-10, five weeks earlier in Yankee Stadium, but Washington, then 5-6, was favored by 18 points this time. There was good reason to believe that the Giants were ripe to be routed. Two weeks earlier, they gave up 55 points to the Rams. Huff consumed tape of that defeat as Graham noted that his team, which included five future Hall of Famers, seemed “loose, maybe too loose.”

His running attack was a riddle. Tailback Bobby Mitchell was in the doghouse for dropping a pass in the end zone the previous game. Halfback A.D. Whitfield’s knee was ailing. Though Whitfield was likely to play, the injury report filed to the league office signaled Joe Don Looney, perhaps the NFL’s most uncoachable player, as the starter. Looney had been the Giants’ No. 1 pick in 1964, but he confounded Sherman, and frustrated Wellington Mara to the point that he was traded before the season opener as a rookie. First, Looney went to Baltimore before being re-routed to Detroit and then Washington three games into the 1966 season. Graham assigned Huff to room with him. Huff bristled, but Graham then gave him a bonus of $1,500 to babysit. Huff considered Looney “very appropriately named” and a “headache.”

Sherman had his own issues to deal with. Back in the Bronx, the Giants practiced that week in a city overwhelmed with smog, and the defense studied film in a cold, dank room that the players called “Siberia.” Home offered few comforts. The week before, against the expansion Falcons, the Giants lost, 27-16, and two fans leapt onto the field. One fan swung at Sherman, but failed to connect with the coach.

It was a new nadir for a proud organization that had reached six NFL championship games in eight seasons, from 1956-1963, during Huff’s tenure. That included three title games under Sherman, a former quarterback from Brooklyn who twice won coach of the year honors in that span. By 1966, gone were the teams of Huff and Tittle, a dominant era giving way to a Giant diaspora. Replacements proved fragile. Quarterback Earl Morall fractured a wrist in a Saturday practice three weeks before the Washington game. Tom Kennedy, signed from the Dodgers, stood under center in his stead. Homer Jones, a 6-foot-2, 220-pound split end known as “Rhino,” had to adjust. The Washington game was Kennedy’s first career start.

“I had my timing down with Morall,” Jones says. “I would catch the ball and just envision throwing it up in the stands after making a score.”

Huff’s aim was to hit Kennedy before he could throw. The linebacker rushed all quarterbacks the same and attacked by any means. Known for late hits and cheap shots, jumping on piles and elbowing opponents, Huff charged ahead. Once the Giant who recorded an interception against Washington in New York’s 53-0 win in 1961, Huff now made a request to Graham before kickoff at 1:30 p.m.

“Show no mercy to that little son of a bitch across the field,” Huff said, per his memoir. “Because this is our day.”

A black-and-white photograph of Huff — mud on his nose, wet grass matted against his three-bar facemask — hangs in a hallway on the sixth floor of MetLife Stadium when the Giants play. In it, Huff is a Giant still, a blue cape wrapping his broad shoulders. The visiting team’s broadcast booth is around the corner from the image, and Jurgensen, now in his 36th season on radio, walks by it as the 167th regular season matchup between the NFC East rivals wraps up. He departs the booth before the final knee is taken in a Washington win, and transitions his thoughts to the 1966 battle. He used to call games with Huff until 2013, the two talking in folksy manners and Huff being charmingly fuzzy with old facts. Now, Jurgensen ambles by Huff’s photo. He shakes his head, and speaks softly.

“Ours was a strange game,” Jurgensen says. “Strange, just strange.”

There were early sequences in the contest when it seemed few, if any, points might be scored. On the first play, Jurgensen dropped back and threw left to Charley Taylor, a receiver. Taylor caught the ball, but Giants linebacker Clarence Childs met him immediately to tackle Taylor four yards behind the line. Washington punted three downs later, and the Giants were called for a clipping penalty on the return. Kennedy pitched one ball out right for no gain on first down and threw an interception on third down. Washington’s offense awoke in Giants’ territory with a connection from Jurgensen to Whitfield. It occurred on a play-action fake, and Whitfield wiggled past Giants defensive back Henry Carr, a gold medalist in the 200-meter dash at the 1964 Olympic Games in Tokyo. It was the first score, but no flood of offense followed. Instead, Gogolak’s extra point kick was blocked by Childs.

“The thing that annoys me is that I probably could have gotten it up higher,” Gogolak says, “but that is the musing of a 70-year-old reflecting with 20-20 vision.”

Whitfield doubled up with the game’s second score, as well. It came on a 63-yard rush right up the gut of the Giants defense. That made it 13-0, and Washington whirled about on defense. During one series, linebacker Chris Hanburger watched Jones juggle the ball before turning up field for a five-yard gain. Hanburger got Jones out of bounds, where he was wrapped in a camera wire. Jones threw the cable off him, but Washington defenders remained in pursuit from sideline to sideline. Huff manned the middle, and blitzed on a first and 10 from the 33-yard line. He split the Giants’ center and right guard to wrap his arms around Kennedy’s waist and legs.

“Wham, bam, thank you, ma’am,” Huff says. “The guy was like, ‘what the hell did you call me ma’am for?’ I put the guard down, hit him in the head, kicked him.”

Washington appeared primed to win in a walkover as more hits came. It was early in the second quarter when Hanburger knocked the ball loose from Kennedy’s hands and nearly knocked Kennedy’s head off his neck. Defensive back Brig Owens scooped up the leather and pivoted up field. He had already picked off a pass in the first half, and now returned the fumble 62 yards untouched for a touchdown. It was 20-0 by then, and the Giants soon got on the board with a six-yard rush by Allen Jacobs. Washington did not wither. Whitfield and Looney ran touchdowns in on back-to-back possessions. Looney’s came on a nine-yard sprint around the left end. To stay inbounds, he tiptoed the last five yards into the end zone to make it 34-7.

Trickery had yet to be introduced by either team. That soon changed. On the final drive of the first half, Kennedy was benched by Sherman, and in came Gary Wood. Jurgensen watched his new counterpart throw deep to Jones, only to have a Washington defender flagged for interference. The Giants took the ball to the 1-yard line and aligned in a running formation with one back. It was there that the game’s slickest play took place. Wood faked a handoff, pressed the ball against his left leg and rolled right. Defenders froze. He slipped in to execute a perfect sleight of hand.

“I turned to Sam when we were up and asked, ‘Jesus, how many points do I have to score?’” Jurgensen says. “Sam just said, ‘Keep going! Keep going!’”

“It’s hard to believe,” says Owens, now 72 years old, bespectacled and smiling. He is seated in a corner office on the first floor of a Georgetown building that stands less than two miles from the White House. It is the same hour as President-elect Donald Trump’s first meeting with President Barack Obama, but Owens’s suspended belief traces to the 1966 game, not the presidential election. He recalls Huff’s harrumphs about Sherman, but most notable are Owens’ contributions to the Washington cause. He picked off three passes and recovered a fumble that day. The second interception went back 60 yards for a Pick 6. “You would think with all the new rules, no defenders being able to touch anyone now, that the record would fall.”

Huff was the headliner in 1966, but Washington fans hailed Owens as a timely thief against the Giants. He spearheaded the defense as Kennedy threw three picks and Wood tossed a pair. The third quarter was a 15-minute air raid. First, Wood connected with Joe Morrison on a first down for a 41-yard touchdown to open the second half. Then, Jurgensen found Taylor for a 32-yard score. Back on the field, Wood, bracing to absorb a crushing blow, threw to Jones for a 50-yard touchdown. Wood survived, and the Giants were within 13 points. Jurgensen halted that momentum, though. On a play from his own 26-yard line, Taylor broke free along the right sideline. The ball landed in a tight window between two Giants. Ball in hand, Taylor went 74 yards for a score, leaving behind Spider Lockhart, a flamboyant Giant who wore $159 Petrocelli suits and drove a yellow Jaguar.

“I’ve never seen anyone throw more accurately than Sonny,” Owens says. “Still haven’t. Not Brady, not anyone.”

Jurgensen’s scoring contributions were done for the day with his third touchdown pass in the books. To start the fourth quarter, Washington led, 48-28. Sherman, in a beige overcoat, wrung his hands. There was still plenty to worry about. Washington kept coming at the Giants, and the next touchdown arrived when the Giants punted on a fourth and 21. Rickie Harris fielded the ball and stepped to his right. He advanced toward the middle and eventually cut back left to negotiate his way through a thicket, kicking up dirt on the D.C. Stadium’s baseball infield as he scored by home plate. That registered his 52-yard touchdown return. Harris held the ball high with his right hand before throwing it 20 rows up into the stands.

“There was very little defense,” Owens says. “Points everywhere, nonstop.”

Kennedy re-entered the game for the Giants then. He connected with Aaron Thomas, a sharp route runner with a missing tooth. Dan Lewis followed that up with a one-yard rushing touchdown. No matter the down, distance or point differential, though, Washington outworked the Giants. With three minutes remaining, Sherman held up three fingers to alert his team to the clock. Time could not tick away quickly enough, though. Mitchell, the running back in Graham’s doghouse, took the ball to his left side, cut back to the middle, sidestepped defenders and cut back once more to the right, keeping his balance over a safety’s last attempt to grab him. It was good for a 45-yard touchdown run. The score was 69-41, and Charlie Gogolak’s extra point set a team record as it was his ninth for the game. All seemed done for the day.

“I just remember the whole game going quickly,” Owens says.

Plenty has slowed since 1966. Owens is readying for a team reunion. Forty or so old timers, including Huff, are expected to return to the District. He knows who is ailing and who is well. Owens has never had to undergo major surgery. He still does Tai Chi. Whether healthy or hobbled, Owens believes his friends feel the same.

“We’d do it all again,” he says. “I always tell Sam I was there protecting him.”

Football royalty congregates in The Empire Room at the Waldorf Astoria on Park Ave. as the National Football Foundation prepares for a night inside the Grand Ballroom to celebrate its 58th annual awards banquet in December. In the hallway, beneath glass chandeliers, are Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams and former SEC Commissioner Mike Slive. On stage before them is a pair of brothers, Charlie and Peter Gogolak. They are unlikely honorees, having played in the Ivy League, for Princeton and Cornell, respectively. They receive the Outstanding Contribution to Amateur Football Award. Included in their backstory is a note on the 1966 game.

“Washington and New York have always had a sort of a thing, no?” says Peter Gogolak, the Giants kicker in 1966 and now working in the financial industry.

No pair of counterparts that day knew each other better than the kickers. They were brothers who departed Hungary on November 30, 1956 in the middle of the night to escape Soviet rule. They fled to Ogdensburg, N.Y., where Peter, the elder, watched Giants game before kicking balls in a cow pasture. He kicked in a soccer style, laying into the ball with the side of his right foot instead of straight on with his toes like football kickers did at the time. He built himself a goal post out of two-by-fours, and Charlie followed suit. The soccer-style kick was novel, and value was hard to assign. When Washington selected Charlie with the team’s first round draft pick in 1966, Huff stewed. He considered it a waste to take a “sidewinder” kicker so high.

No effort proved Gogolak’s worth more than against the Giants. Though Charlie missed the extra point after the game’s first touchdown, it was Peter who missed two field goals, one from 41 yards out and a second from 46. Charlie Gogolak figured his day was done in the fourth quarter until Kennedy, on fourth down, threw the ball out of bounds as if it was third down. Washington had another possession, and Huff, running off the field, shouted, “Field goal unit on! Field goal unit!” Gogolak, hearing the call and thinking it was a coach, ran on. The ball was on the 22-yard line, and the kick was good. Giants owner John Mara, then 11, was walking from the Giants sideline toward the locker room with his cousin, Tim Mara, at the time. He remembers Tim saying, “That son of a bitch!” Fans chanted: “More! More! More!”

In the immediate aftermath, it was believed that Graham ordered it, and Graham did not dissuade reporters, telling them that Gogolak needed the practice.

“In a crazy game like this, what’s another three points?” Graham said.

Sherman, waving his cigar, took no exception in the losing locker room.

“This may sound peculiar,” Sherman said to reporters, “but we played better today than against Los Angeles.”

Huff hoped the beating would lead to Sherman’s dismissal as coach. In The Washington Post, a writer compared the display to a savage beating:

“Little Big Horn was worse. There were no survivors.”

Sherman marched on, and recollections remain fresh in some minds. After a speech at the Waldorf, the Gogolaks look around the room. Charlie recalls the final field goal was a knuckleball kick. He adds that he never knew it was Huff who ordered him on the field for 20 years until he heard Huff talk about it during a television interview. Gogolak remembers hearing a firm voice. He followed an order.

“We just wanted to keep them at bay,” he says.

A private road lined with black-boarded fences leads to Huff Farm. The path is winding and rambles past Bandit’s Run farm before reaching the black wrought-iron gates to Huff’s estate. Stone pillars topped by lawn jockey figurines stand on each side. Pavement yields to loose gravel; grazing space and barns dot inner routes.

His colonial house features a redbrick chimney. Horses with chestnut coats idle. In the soil on nearby properties set between the Bull Run and Blue Ridge Mountains, bullets from the Civil War’s Battle of Unison are still found. Huff breathes in fall air.

“We’re still getting around, Sam,” Keys says.

“And we’ll be around,” Huff says.

Holden pulls up in her SUV. She is heading out with Huff to the veterinarian for a regular checkup. The patient is Sammy, a Jack Russell. Keys can’t help himself. He broaches the subject of Sherman once more. The name does not register for Huff as he sits in the front passenger seat. Sammy barks. Holden rubs the dog’s chin. She knows the toll of Huff’s hits, the three times he was knocked unconscious while playing for Washington coach Vince Lombardi when Huff was 35 years old in 1969.

“Every now and again he gets off a good zinger when we’re talking,” she says. “Lets you know he’s there.”

Holden knows the story of 1966 well. She considers it one of Huff’s favorites to tell, and he shared it often as the leaves turned to umber and russet each year. She laughs when she considers the final chapter. On January 3, 2015, Sherman died. He was 91. Holden learned of the coach’s passing and relayed word to Huff at home.

“You know what Sam said?” Holden says to Keys. “‘Too bad. He was a very nice man.’ Who would have ever thought that?”
