Weeb Ewbank
Original name: Wilbur C. Ewbank
Birth: May 6, 1907
Death: Nov. 18, 1998

Hall of Fame Professional Football Coach. Inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1978, he guided the Baltimore Colts to the NFL title in 1958 and 1959. The Colts' sudden-death victory over the New York Giants in 1958 NFL Championship is considered the contest that ushered the sport into mainstreen America. He then captured the American Football League championship with the New York Jets in 1968. Heavy underdogs against the star-laden NFL champion Colts, he guided the Jets to a 16-7 upset that gave the upstart league credibility and led to a merger between the leagues one season later.
