“Tom” 
      Mexican American football player (b. Dec. 3, 1922, Guadalajara, Mex.—d. Jan. 4, 2000, Palm Desert, Calif.), was considered one of the National Football League's (NFL's) greatest receivers. He played for the Los Angeles Rams from 1948 to 1956, compiling career totals of 400 catches for 5,397 yd and 38 touchdowns. He set an NFL record with 84 receptions in 1950, and the following year he scored the winning touchdown during the Rams' victory over the Cleveland Browns in the NFL championship game. He turned to coaching after his retirement as a player, serving as an assistant with the Green Bay Packers (1962–65) and as head coach of the New Orleans Saints (1967–70). He was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1970.
