Bart Starr

Bryan Bartlett “Bart” Starr (January 9, 1934-) (QB) was plugged in at the starting quarterback position by Packers new head coach Vince Lombardi in 1959 and Starr’s Hall of Fame career was off and running. Bart was an All-American high school star, but struggled to find his place and a permanent position at the University of Alabama. The Green Bay Packers selected Starr in the 17th round of the 1956 NFL Draft where he would begin his professional career as a back up behind Tobin Rote and Babe Parilli. In 1959, new head coach, Vince Lombardi, saw the skill, talent and ability in Starr replacing Lamar McHan at quarterback in the eighth game and Starr never willingly relinquished the position in his career. His first game as a starter pitted him against fellow Hall of Famer Johnny Unitas as the Baltimore Colts beat the Packers 28-24. Unitas guided the Colts to the NFL League Championship that seasons and Starr led the Packers to the title game the following season. From 1958-1970, Starr and Unitas played for the NFL League Championship 11 of the 13 years. Bart Starr was a five-time NFL Champion, including winning Super Bowls I and II and was named the Super Bowl MVP for both title games. In 1966, as a reigning Super Bowl I champion, Bart put in another career year with a 62.2% completion percentage and was named the league’s Most Valuable Player. He was named to the 1966 NFL All-Pro First Team and was a four-time NFL Pro Bowl selection. Bart Starr finished his career with 90 points of 15 rushing touchdowns, threw for 24,718 passing yards on 1,808 completions in 3,149 attempts. He retired with an 80.5 passer rating and had 152 TDs against 138 interceptions. Following his playing days, Bart became the head coach of the Packers from 1975-1983, compiling a 52-76-2 record. Bart Starr was inducted into the Pro Football Hal of Fame in 1977.
