Countdown to the Big Game: Day 1

(KFVS) - Here's number 1 in our Countdown to the Big Game.

Former Charleston High School star Charlie Babb enjoyed a storybook career.

He played college football at Memphis and was picked in the fifth round of the 1972 draft as a safety by the Miami Dolphins.

In that magical year, Babb played a key role in Miami's Super Bowl victory, and the only undefeated season in NFL history at 14-0.

Babb also helped Miami win another Super Bowl title the next year.

He eventually retired with the Dolphins in 1979.
