One of the top pass-catchers in Idaho history, Yo Murphy nabbed 140 receptions during his Vandal career and gained 2,267 yards through the air. During his freshman season, Murphy teamed with fellow Vandal Athletic Hall-of-Famer Kasey Dunn to lead the Vandal offense to a school-record 4,117 passing yards an average of 374.3 per game. Murphy’s career receptions rank seventh in Idaho history, while his yards rank fourth and his 17 career receiving touchdowns are tied for fifth. His best year was 1992, when he was chosen first-team All-American by three publications, earned First Team All-Big Sky honors and Idaho Most Valuable Offensive Player honors. That season, he was second in the NCAA with 68 grabs for 1,156 yards and nine touchdowns. Murphy enjoyed a 14-year professional football career that spanned more leagues than any other player in football history. He is the only professional football player to have played in the NFL, CFL, XFL and NFL Europe. He is also the only player to have played in the Super Bowl, Grey Cup and World Bowl. He won the 1994 Grey Cup with the British Columbia Lions; the 1996 World Bowl, in which he was the MVP, with the Scottish Claymores; played in the 2002 Super Bowl with the St. Louis Rams, and won the 2007 Grey Cup with the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
