Pat Studstill (born June 4, 1938 in Shreveport, Louisiana) is a former National Football League punter and wide receiver from (1961-1972) for the Detroit Lions, the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots.
He played in the 1956 season for then young starting coach Lee Hedges at C. E. Byrd High School in Shreveport. Studstill's best year was 1966, when he was second in the NFL with 67 receptions and led the League with 1266 receiving yards. One of his five touchdowns went for 99 yards, making him, at the time, the third player to accomplish this feat and the first to accomplish it while not wearing a Redskins uniform. Since then, eight other players have accomplished the same feat. In 1966, he had 5 consecutive games with 125+ pass yards, which had since been tied by Calvin Johnson.
He is remembered for having been the last player not to wear a Riddell facemask.
