Carroll Hardy is an interesting man. As collegiate at the University of Colorado, Hardy lettered in football, baseball and track & field. Coming out of college, he was selected by the San Francisco 49ers in the third round of the 1955 NFL Draft. Hardy joined a 49ers backfield that was already stocked with future hall of fame members in Hugh McElhenny, Joe Perry and Y.A. Tittle. He was moved to receiver, and managed to haul in a dozen receptions, four of which he ran in for touchdowns.
