Pough grew up in Jacksonville, Florida and attended college at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, a historically black college which at the time competed in Division II. He was a four-time All-America track athlete as well as a running back and wide receiver on the school's football team.
Pough was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the third round of the 1976 NFL Draft. Although he was considered undersized for the NFL, his sprinter's speed (he ran the 100 metres in 9.3 seconds) made him a threat.
He played for the Steelers for two seasons before being traded along with guard Jim Clack to the New York Giants prior to the 1978 season in exchange for offensive lineman John Hicks. He played one season with the Giants and one for the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League before ending his football career.
