Stan Humphries Inducted into Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame

Stan Humphries How can you not smile when you think of Stan Humphries? He is a classic. Never the best athlete on the field, actually far from it, but he did great things on the football field despite having a pretty big belly and not much speed or agility. Everyone remembers when Humphries led the Chargers to the Super Bowl in 1994 but he accomplished a lot more than that during his career. He is a member of the Chargers Hall of Fame. Before making it to the NFL, he was the quarterback for Northeast Louisiana University (now Louisiana-Monroe) and led them to a I-AA National Title in 1987. He still holds the record there for most games with 300 yards passing, having done it eight times.

Humphries began his NFL career with the Washington Redskins and was a part of the team that won the Super Bowl in 1991. He was traded to San Diego the following season. He went on to lead the Bolts to 50-32 record when he was the starter. He played in a total of 89 games throwing for 17,191 yards and 89 touchdowns. The heavy-footed QB even scored 7 rushing touchdowns.

Humphries was always a winner and had more determination and toughness than most players in the NFL today. It is great to see him receive this honor in his home state of Louisiana.
