Football Player
    He played on eight different teams between two different leagues combined.
    His nickname during his career was 'Flingin' Frank.'

    He was suspended from the NFL for three years as a result.
    He was fired by the Eskimos following the Grey Cup game, after he asked to be paid more money (1952).
    He threw the first 99 yard touchdown pass in NFL history.
    He served in the United States Naval Reserve for two years.
    He was credited with being the first player in Giants history to sign a multi-year contract with the team.
    He was the first high profile football player to play in the Canadian Football League.
    He successfully was reinstated into the NFL, after redeeming himself both personally and professionally.
