No. 48 Robert Hall (Quarterback 1990 – 1993)

The first quarterback on our list of the 50 greatest Texas Tech football players ever is Robert Hall. The Dallas native ranks 4th on the Texas Tech total offense list with 8,489 yards from scrimmage.

In 2008, Hall was an inaugural member of the Texas Tech Hall of Fame, which honors athletes exclusively for their athletic achievements.

Hall was a unanimous first-team All-Southwest Conference selection in 1993 when he lead the league in passing yards, total offense, and passing touchdowns.  He left the program as Tech’s leader in passing yards (7,908), completions (548) and passing touchdowns (48).  These numbers may seem meager in today’s world of the spread offense, but considering that Hall played in an offense that featured running back Byron (Bam) Morris, Hall’s career accomplishments should not be overlooked.
