Yuma's Curley Culp inducted into NFL Hall of Fame

Posted:

YUMA, Ariz. (13 On Your Side) – Yuma's own Curley Culp already has a resume most of us can only dream of.

Over the weekend, he added another accomplishment to the already impressive list. And this one might be his most impressive yet.

The Yuma High alum was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, on Saturday, along with Will Warren Sapp and Bill Parcells.

He is most known for his time spent with the Kansas City Chiefs from 1968 to 1974.

Culp's standout strength and speed revolutionized the defensive back position and helped the team win the only Super Bowl in franchise history.

Culp also played for Houston and Detroit.

He retired in 1981 waiting more than three decades to be enshrined as a senior nominee.

Culp says he will always remember this time in his life with continued pleasure.

He played in five pro bowls over 14 seasons.
