  1. Paul Vernon Hornung (born December 23, 1935) is a retired professional American football player, a Hall of Fame running back for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (NFL) from 1957 to 1966, winning four NFL titles and the first Super Bowl. He is the first in pro football history to win the Heisman Trophy, be selected as the first overall selection in the NFL Draft, win the NFL most valuable player award, and be inducted into both the professional and college football halls of fame.

    A versatile player, Hornung was a halfback, quarterback, and placekicker. An excellent all-around athlete, he also played college basketball for Notre Dame.

  2. Recall a Packers game from back in Hornung's era where Jimmy Taylor got a pretty good head bonking. Third and goal for the six-inch line, Taylor goes belly right and gets no where, rolls back and tries again further to the right and goes headfirst into the right side goal post. Back then the goal posts penetrated the sod at the goal line. Taylor rolls back again to the right and on his third crack at the line makes it in to the end zone. In a follow-up after the game the teevee talking heads interviewed Taylor and played him a clip of the play. Taylor's quip after watching the play was he was relieved it was the goalpost on the second plunge. He was afraid that someone on the Giants had really upped their game.

  3. Of course I loved all the Packers as a kid, but Taylor was really my favorite.

    Goat was almost too good to really get involved with.
