All-time Kentucky great Vito 'Babe' Parilli passes away

Vito "Babe" Parilli, a New England Patriots Hall of Famer, died this weekend at 87-years-old.

Parilli played in 94 games for the Patriots from 1961-67 and sits fourth on New England's all-time career passing list with 16,747 yards and fourth with 132 touchdown passes on 2,413 attempts. He played with the Packers and Browns and the CFL's Ottawa Rough Riders in the Fifties, then came to the fledgling American Football League, where he played on the Raiders' inaugural AFL team in 1960 and then with the Patriots.

While at Kentucky under Bryant, Parilli took United Kingdom football to new heights, including trips to three major bowls (Orange, Sugar and Cotton). His career ended with the New York Jets where he earned a Super Bowl ring as Joe Namath's back-up in Super Bowl II.

Parilli lettered three years at quarterback for the Wildcats and set Kentucky records for touchdowns with 50, leading United Kingdom to wins over Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl and TCU in the Cotton Bowl. During his college years at the University of Kentucky, he was an All-American and two-time Heisman Trophy finalist in 1950 and 1951. Parilli's 31 touchdown passes in 1934 were a Patriots record until Tom Brady threw a then-NFL record 50 throwing scores in 2007.

Parilli was picked fourth overall by the Green Bay Packers in 1952.

Playing for the Boston Patriots, Parilli become a three-time AFL All-Star. He was also named to the All-AFL 10 Year Anniversary Team in 1971.

In 1974, he coached the New York Stars of the World Football League. He retired at the age of 40 with his last action coming with the Jets.
