NFL career

Berry, who played with special shoes because one of his legs was shorter than the other, was beset with poor eyesight and had less-than-blazing speed, seemed an unlikely future star prior to his NFL career. He didn't start on his high-school team until he was a senior, even though his father was the coach. Berry went on to catch only 33 passes in his three seasons at Southern Methodist University before being selected by the Colts in the 20th round of the 1954 NFL draft. Dallas Hall at Dedman College at SMU The Laura Lee Blanton Hall during a rare snow storm Southern Methodist University (also known as SMU) is a nationally recognized, private, coeducational university in University Park, Texas, (an enclave of Dallas). ...


However, Berry became a permanent starter on the team by his second NFL season, and didn't miss a single game until his eighth year in the league. During his career, he led the NFL in receptions three times, and was selected to the Pro Bowl six times, from 1957-61 and in 1965. He also made the all-NFL team from 1958-1960. Berry was considered the very identity of the great Colts' teams of the 1950s and 1960s (along with Johnny Unitas, Alan Ameche, Lenny Moore, John Mackey, Gino Marchetti, and Jim Parker).He was famous for his attention to detail and preparation. He and quarterback John Unitas regularly worked after practice and developed the timing and knowledge of each other's abilities that made each more effective. In addition to his great record as a pass receiver, Berry's dedication to his craft is demonstrated by the fact that, in a 13-year career, he fumbled the football only once. John Constantine Johnny Unitas (May 7, 1933 – September 11, 2002), nicknamed The Golden Arm, was a professional American football player in the 1950s through the 1970s. ...

Gino John Marchetti (born January 2, 1927, Smithers, West Virginia) is a former professional American football player in the National Football League. ... James Thomas Parker (b. ...


One of Berry's more notable performance was in the 1958 NFL Championship Game, known as "The Greatest Game Ever Played," in which he caught a championship-record 12 passes for 178 yards and a touchdown. During the Colts' final game-winning drive in overtime, Berry had two key receptions for 33 yards. The 1958 National Football League Championship Game was played on December 28, 1958 at Yankee Stadium in New York City. ...


Raymond Berry ended his NFL career in 1967 with an NFL record 631 receptions for 9,275 yards and 68 touchdowns (14.7 yards per catch). In 1973, Berry was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. In 1999, he was ranked No. 40 on The Sporting News' list of the 100 Greatest Football Players.

Coaching career

In 1984, Berry took over as the head coach of the New England Patriots, replacing the previous coach Ron Meyer in the middle of the season. Under his leadership, the Patriots won 4 of their last 8 games and finished the season with an 9-7 record.

Ron Meyer is a former College and Professional Football Coach. ...


In the 1985 season, the team did even better, recording an 11-5 record and making the playoffs as a wildcard team. They went on to become the first team in NFL history ever to advance to the Super Bowl by winning 3 playoff games on the road, defeating New York Jets 26-14, the Los Angeles Raiders, 27-20, and the Miami Dolphins 31-14. New England's win against Miami was particularly surprising because the Patrtiots had not beaten the Dolphins at the Orange Bowl (Miami's then home stadium) since 1966, in Miami's first AFL season. The Patriots had lost to the Dolphins there 18 consecutive times, including a 30-27 loss in week 15 of the regular season. In addition, the Dolphins had recorded an AFC best 12-4 record and had been the only team during the season to defeat the Chicago Bears, who had stormed to the top of the NFC with a 15-1 record and advanced to the Super Bowl by shutting out both their opponents in the playoffs.

The following season, Berry's Patriots again recorded an 11-5 record and made the playoffs, but this time lost in the first round of the postseason. This would be the last time the Patriots would make the playoffs with Berry as their coach. They narrowly missed the playoffs with an 8-7(during a strike shortened season) record in 1987, and a 9-7 record in 1988. Then in Berry's last year as a coach, the Patriots finished the 1989 season 5-11.


Berry's overall coaching record is 48 wins and 39 losses, and 3-2 in the playoffs.

Berry, who needed to wear special shoes because one leg was shorter than the other, didn’t become a starter on his high school football team until his senior year – even though his father was the coach.
In 1956, Johnny Unitas became the Colts’ quarterback and Raymond was ready to put all his hours of practice to use.
Three straight times Raymond led the league in receptions and caught a then-record 631 passes for 9,275 yards and 68 touchdowns in his 13-year career.
Raymond Berry (896 words)
Raymond Berry was a skinny, near-sighted, crooked-legged, bum-backed Texan who, in the decade after 1955, as a receiver for the old Baltimore Colts, played his way into the Hall of Fame by practicing football thoughtfully, meticulously, scientifically.
Berry and Unitas shared three things in common: They formed the greatest passing combination of their age, they led the Colts to two NFL championships, and they did it as, fundamentally, self-made football players.
He was the first big-time athlete to wear contact lenses, and, whenever the sun was bright behind Unitas, Berry put on specially designed bug-eyed dark glasses.
