Description:
Sam Ball (born June 1, 1944 in Henderson, Kentucky) was a National Football League offensive lineman from 1966 through 1970. During that span he appeared in Super Bowl III and Super Bowl V for the Baltimore Colts. He played college football at the University of Kentucky.

Ironically, he was also drafted in 1966 by the Jets in the 2nd rd, 15th overall. 1966 was the last year where NFL and AFL teams could draft the same player.

Jan 12th 1969 saw Sam Ball as the starting offensive RT (Right Tackle) for the Colts against the Jets in Super Bowl III. He missed out on a Super Bowl ring as the Jets won 16-7, however he won one in Super Bowl V.

The Jets drafted Sam Walton at RT in 1968, he struggled as a rookie before being replaced in the playoffs by Dave Herman who moved across from RG. Ball choosing the Colts over the Jets influenced the drafting of Walton as Ball would have been used to replace Sherman Plunkett.
