Known as "Crazylegs," Elroy Hirsch could tear up a field during his playing days, as the former Chicago Rockets and Los Angeles Rams star traded off running back and receiver, but still managed to boast insane catching numbers such as his 18.1 YPR, and the 60 receptions he made in the end zone. In 1951 with the Los Angeles Rams, Hirsch recorded 1,495 receiving yards en route to an NFL Championship that same season.
The mark stood as a league record for 19 years.
