Football career

Warfield graduated from Warren G. Harding in 1960. He was a star running back and defensive back for the Panthers joining the varsity as a sophomore in 1957. In 1958, Warfield ran for 810 yards and scored 15 touchdowns- a campaign highlighted by a 6-0 victory over the powerhouse Massillon Tigers. Warfield ran for 1158 yards in 1959 and hit the paydirt 13 times. Warfield also set a state mark in the long jump.


He graduated from the Ohio State University, where he shined as a two time all Big 10 halfback in 1962-63 and as a track team sprinter, jumper and hurdler, and played for the Cleveland Browns as a wide receiver from 1964 to 1969. In 1970, in a then controversial trade, Browns owner Art Modell dealt the still great Warfield to the Miami Dolphins for a draft pick which the Browns used on Purdue All-American QB Mike Phipps. Phipps never panned out for the Browns and Warfield was a major factor in the Dolphins' championships in the early 1970s.

Shortly before Super Bowl VI U.S. President Richard M. Nixon famously telephoned Miami coach Don Shula to suggest the Dolphins run a particular pass play to Warfield. The play, a crossing pattern, was tried and resulted in an incomplete pass.

In early 1974 shortly after the Dolphins' win in the Super Bowl Warfield and teammates Larry Csonka and Jim Kiick made what were then wholly surprising decisions to leave the Dolphins at the conclusion of the coming 1974 season for what appeared to be more lucrative pastures with the Toronto Northmen of World Football League. (The Northmen moved to Memphis without playing a game in Toronto.) Warfield played the 1975 season with the Memphis Southmen before finishing his playing career with the Cleveland Browns again in 1976 and 1977. He was a frequent Pro Bowl (8 times) and All League (6 times) selection. The tone or style of this article or section may not be appropriate for Wikipedia. ...

In his 13 NFL seasons, Warfield caught 427 passes for 8,565 yards, giving him an amazing 20.1 yards per catch average, and scored 85 touchdowns. He added another 204 yards on 22 rushing attempts. In his only WFL season (1975) he caught 25 passes for 422 yards, a 16.9 yards per catch average, with 3 touchdowns.


In his rookie season 1964, he caught 52 receptions (his best season for receptions) for 920 yards and 9 touchdowns as the Browns won the NFL Championship. Also Nintendo emulator: 1964 (emulator). ...


In 1968 he caught 50 receptions and for the only time in his career, gained over 1,000 yards in receiving (1,067 yards) and scored 12 touchdowns as the Browns reached the NFL Championship for the third time in the 1960s. Year 1968 (MCMLXVIII) was a leap year starting on Monday (link will display full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ...


For most of Warfield's tenure in Miami the Dolphins ran an offense which stressed running the ball. Even so, Warfield was a major threat on any given play. For example, even though he only caught 28 passes during the 1973 NFL season, 11 of those receptions were touchdown catches, with four coming in the first half of the regular season finale. Three years earlier when he arrived in Miami, he caught only 28 passes but he averaged 25.1 yards per catch. The 1973 NFL season was the 54th regular season of the National Football League. ...
