Early years[edit] Humphrey attended Kilgore High School in Kilgore, Texas. He played high school football at quarterback and halfback. He was a part of a dominant tandem with halfback Larry Hickman. As a junior, he was switched to fullback. In his final year, he was moved to halfback. He also lettered in baseball and basketball. College career[edit] Humphrey accepted a football scholarship from Baylor University, along with Hickman. He was an All-Conference player at quarterback. As a sophomore, he scored the winning touchdown on a quarterback sneak in Baylor's 1957 Sugar Bowl 13-7 victory, over the undefeated, highly-favored and No. 2-ranked University of Tennessee. In 1958, he led the nation with 112 completions for 1,316 yards. In the season finale he passed for 387 yards and 5 touchdowns against Rice University, which was a school record that stood until 2006.[1] As a junior and senior, his teams finished last in the Southwest Conference. At the conclusion of his senior season, he played in the December 1958 North–South Shrine Game, where he had 5 touchdown passes and was named MVP,[2][3] and the January 1959 Senior Bowl, where he was a co-captain of the South team. In 2006, Humphrey was inducted into the Baylor Sports Hall of Fame.[4] Professional career[edit] Humphrey was selected by the Los Angeles Rams

He was a backup quarterback (only one start) for the Rams during the 1959 and 1960 seasons. On November 8, 1961, he was waived to allow him to join the Dallas Cowboys. In 1961 he joined the Dallas Cowboys, to replace an injured Don Meredith. He appeared in 2 games and completed one pass for 16 yards. He was released on September 11, 1962. On June 7, 1963, he was traded by the Cowboys to the St. Louis Cardinals in exchange for tight end Hugh McInnis, where he was a backup quarterback for three seasons. In 1965, he started 3 games (all loses). He was released on August 15, 1966. On August 30, 1966, he was signed by the Denver Broncos
