Sam Huff, the hard-hitting Hall of Fame linebacker who helped the New York Giants reach six NFL title games from the mid-1950s to the early 1960s, has died.

He was 87.

Deborah Matthews, a lawyer for Huff’s daughter, Catherine Huff Myers,  told The Associated Press that Huff died of natural causes in Winchester, Virginia. An obituary released by the Giants said Huff had been diagnosed with dementia in 2013. Raised in West Virginia coal mining country, Huff became a two-time All-Pro in a career that spanned 1956-69.

He later became a popular player and announcer in Washington. Huff went to five Pro Bowls, four with the Giants and one with Washington.
