David Henry Humm (born April 2, 1952) is a former professional football player, a quarterback in the NFL from 197584 for the Oakland Raiders, Buffalo Bills, Baltimore Colts, and Los Angeles Raiders. He was also an effective holder for a field goal or an extra point, with the unusual habit of arriving on the field with no shoulder pads, which tipped the opposing team that a fake field goal was unlikely.

He played college football at Nebraska, where he was a three-year starter from 1972-74, under head coaches Bob Devaney and Tom Osborne. Humm, a left-hander, was selected by the Raiders in the fifth round of the 1975 NFL Draft, the 128th overall pick. He was primarily a reserve during his professional career.

After his playing career, Humm served as an analyst for Mutual Broadcasting System, the Las Vegas Posse, and the Oakland Raiders.

In 1988, Humm was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at age 36 and lost the use of his legs in 1997.[1] He has set up a broadcasting studio in his home and continues as a color commentator for the Oakland Raiders.
