2014 San Mateo County History Maker - Y.A. Tittle

Every year, the San Mateo County Historical Association hosts the San Mateo County History Makers Dinner that highlights an individual and/or family of San Mateo County who has made significant contributions to California history and beyond.

Y.A. Tittle is a long time Atherton resident and National Football League (NFL) Hall of Fame quarterback.
Y.A. Tittle is a legendary figure in NFL history. He played (1948-1964) during what sports historians have referred to as the “Golden Era” of professional football, which included ten years with the San Francisco 49ers. He established a home with his family in Atherton and launched an important insurance business here on the Peninsula, working it while also playing ball.

In part, because of his four Most Valuable Player awards and being included in seven Pro Bowls, Tittle was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 1971. His participation in the famous “Million Dollar Backfield” of 1954, his development of the “ally-oop” pass in 1957, and the iconic photo of him sitting after being stunned as a result of a play in Pittsburgh in 1964, all give him legendary status in American sports history.
