The New York Giants first learned of future Hall of Fame running back Alphonse “Tuffy” Leemans after a vacationing high school boy, reported to his father what he had witnessed during a game between George Washington College and Alabama.

What he saw was a sensational performance by Leemans who from 1933 to 1935 starred for George Washington. The high school boy was Wellington Mara, son of the Giants owner Tim Mara. Thanks to young Mara, Leemans became the No. 2 draft pick of the Giants in the National Football League's first-ever college draft in 1936.

Offered is a killer photo stamped 1941 of this future Pro Football HOFer. Photo has some editorial crop marks and measures 8x10 in size. One of the best shots we’ve seen of Leemans.
