High Noon Talk: Slingin' Sam


October 7, 2015 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Held on the first Wednesday of every month, High Noon Talks highlight interesting and often untold topics through this lunch-time lecture.

In conjunction with the exhibition Gridiron Glory, join Houston Chronicle columnist Joe Holley to discuss Hall of Fame football player Sam Baugh, a Texan who single-handedly revolutionized the game. From an era when players wore leather helmets, Baugh has become a legend, not because he led the league in punting and interceptions (which he did) but because he led it in passing, six times. His success utilizing the forward pass transformed the notion of offense, and the game of football itself.
