And the Award Goes To…


In 1961, the Touchdown Club of Washington, D.C. established the “Mr. Sam Award,” named after Speaker of the House Sam Rayburn, who was a known sports enthusiast. The award was presented annually to a government figure who fostered and contributed to sports. Newly appointed Associate Justice Byron R. “Whizzer” White was awarded the “Mr. Sam Award” in late 1962 for his college and NFL football careers. Justice White played football, basketball, and baseball for the University of Colorado, and played football professionally for the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Detroit Lions before joining the Court.
