Francis Newton Gifford was an American football player, actor, and television sports pundit who lived from August 16, 1930, to August 9, 2015. He was a play-by-play announcer and commentator for ABC’s Monday Night Football for 27 years after a 12-year career as a halfback and flanker with the New York Giants of the National Football League (NFL).



Gifford was born in Santa Monica, California, to oil driller Weldon Gifford and Lola Mae (née Hawkins). Kern County Union High School, now Bakersfield High School, was his alma mater.

Gifford’s wife, Kathie Lee Gifford, revealed after his death in 2015 that her late husband grew up in a poor family and that he and his family occasionally ate dog food. She claimed they moved 29 times before Gifford graduated from high school due to his father’s inability to find a job during the Great Depression.

She further stated that Gifford “asked Jesus into his heart and that lasted with him for the rest of his life” as a little child when the family went to church every week.

Gifford is most outstanding in the pro bowl and carrier touchdowns. He has hit most of The Most Valuable Player Award in 1956.
