RIP Lee Grosscup, the first great passing QB for
. He led the nation in passing and TDs in 1957 and was a 1st team All-American. He was taken 10th overall by the NY Giants and played in the NFL, AFL and CFL.

I’ve spent a lot of time researching Utah football during the 40’s-50’s lately and the story of Lee Grosscup is one of my favorites. From UW to Santa Monica College to Utah. The pioneer of the “Utah pass” was no doubt a legend and will forever be a Utah man, Rest In Peace #GoUtes
