April 15 marked the 63rd anniversary of sports legend Jackie Robinson
becoming the first African-American Major League Baseball player.
Robinson played his first game for the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15,
1947. But baseball was not Robinson's only sport. He also saw success in
college on the football field for UCLA.
Robinson was the first
four-sport letterman in UCLA history - football (1939 and 1940),
basketball (1940 and 1941), track and field (1940) and baseball (1940). He earned All Pac-10 Honors in football during his time at UCLA.
Robinson led the nation in punt return average in both 1939 (16.5 yards)
and 1940 (21.0 yards). His career average of 18.8 yards ranks fourth in
NCAA history. Robinson also led UCLA in rushing (383 yards), passing (444 yards),
total offense (827 yards), scoring (36 points) and punt returns (21.0
average) his senior year in 1940.
Finally, he rushed for 954 yards (5.9 average) and passed for 449 yards during his two-year career. After graduating from UCLA, Robinson began his professional sports career in 1941 by playing football for the Los Angeles Bulldogs but his football career ended when World War II began, as he entered the Army, rising to the rank of first lieutenant.
