Biography – One of the most widely known linemen of the 1960’s, this two-time All-Pro along with Jerry Kramer made Lombardi’s “Run to Daylight” concept of football almost unstoppable. A natural athlete, Fuzzy entered college on a basketball scholarship and never played football until his junior year. Originally drafted by the Eagles, Fuzzy joined the Packers in a 1959 trade. His spirit and determination quickly made him a team leader and favorite with the fans. A knee injury early in training camp hindered Fuzzy for most of 1967 and he retired from football before the following season.
