Patriots great Babe Parilli dies at 87

When the AFL first emerged in 1960, Parilli jumped at the opportunity and joined the Boston Patriots, where he would spend the next seven seasons of his career playing quarterback for the team.

Originally from Rochester, Pennsylvania, Parilli was recruited to United Kingdom by Paul Bear Bryant and was a two-time First Team All-American, Heisman Trophy nominee and a member of the National Football Foundation College Hall of Fame.

Vito "Babe" Parilli threw a pass in 1965. Parilli led Kentucky to victories over Oklahoma in the 1951 Sugar Bowl and TCU in the 1952 Cotton Bowl.

The Green Bay Packers selected Parilli with the fourth pick in the 1952 NFL Draft.

Arsene Wenger sure of Alexis Sanchez stay at Arsenal after 'positive' talks
The once-promising midfielder spent last season on loan at Bournemouth, where he broke his leg in the latter part of the season. "Of course (he will stay)", Wenger said as Arsenal began their pre-season tour with a win over Western Sydney Wanderers.

It's an bright and sunny day here in New England, but sadly one of the original members of the Boston Patriots has left us on this handsome day.

Parilli is fourth on the team passing list with 16,747 yards and fourth in TD passes with 132. He was also named to the All-AFL 10 Year Anniversary Team in 1971. Parilli's playing career ended with the Jets, where he won a ring as Joe Namath's backup in Super Bowl III. He played three seasons in the Canadian Football League and five seasons in the NFL in the 1950s, before joining the newly formed AFL, where he found his greatest success as a pro.

Kevin Benson stopped short of threatening another lawsuit, but said he's convinced the emergency rules would be invalid. Rather, a statement of emergency allows for swift changes in regulations during temporary scenarios, said Mari St.

Parilli's love of football never waned, and after watching this year's national championship game between Alabama and Clemson, Parilli said, "Best game I ever saw in the college playoffs". He also coached six different Arena Football League teams.
