George Belotti's professional football career was brief but memorable.

Belotti, who died a year ago today at 74, was a center on the 1960 Houston Oilers team that won the first American Football League championship. The Oilers defeated the then-Los Angeles Chargers.

The following season, he played for the Oilers and the Chargers, who had moved from Los Angeles to San Diego.

Belotti lettered three seasons at USC as a tackle.
