On August 11, 2021, former Baylor All-American quarterback, Don Trull, will be recognized as “Touchdowner of the Year” by the Touchdown Club of Houston and the National Football Foundation (NFF).
Passing for more than 4,000 yards and 27 touchdowns in his collegiate career, Trull left an indelible mark on the Baylor record books while becoming the school’s first-ever NFF National Scholar-Athlete. In 2013, he became the seventh Bear to enter the College Football Hall of Fame.
A 1963 First-Team All-American and First-Team All-Southwest Conference selection, Trull led the nation in touchdowns and passing yards his senior season. He was a two-time winner of the Sammy Baugh Award for leading the country in completions (1962, 1963), and he finished fourth in Heisman Trophy voting as a senior. A trailblazer on the field and off, Trull became Baylor’s first two-time First-Team Academic All-American honoree in 1962 and 1963 as well as the school’s first NFF National Scholar-Athlete (1963). Trull led the Bears to the 1961 Gotham Bowl and the 1963 Bluebonnet Bowl under coach John Bridges.
Drafted by both the Houston Oilers and Baltimore Colts, Trull played six years in the AFL and NFL with the Oilers and Boston Patriots and also played in the Canadian Football League, the World Football League and even one game in the Continental Football League.
