Lou Groza was Mr. Golden Toe

Lou Groza , the famed field goal kicker of the Cleveland Browns, is the brother of Alex Groza, the great Kentucky basketball player of the late 1940s. Lou Groza was referred to as “Mr. Golden Toe.”  He spent his entire pro career with the Browns (1946-1967) and scored 1,349 points.  702 of those points came on field goals, 641 on point after touchdown kicks, and six on a touchdown.  Groza led the league in field goals five times.  His most memorable kick came from 16 yards out with 20 seconds left to give the Browns a 30-28 win over the Los Angeles Rams and the NFL championship.  Groza was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1974.
