Chuck Bednarik

1952 Bowman Large

Charles Philip “Chuck” Bednarik (May 1, 1925 - March 21, 2015) (LB/C) was one of the most ferocious tacklers that, in 1960, he hit New York Giants star running back Frank Gifford so hard, that Gifford was knocked out, knocked out of football for 18 months and eventually led to his retirement. Bednarik played center, linebacker and punter for the University of Pennsylvania and in 1948 was named the Maxwell Award winner, honoring the best collegiate American football player of the year, and finished third in Heisman Trophy voting. The Philadelphia Eagles took Chuck with the Number 1 overall pick in the 1949 NFL Draft. Chuck continued to play both sides of the ball with the Eagles alongside fellow Hall of Famers Steve Van Buren and Pete Pihos and later Norm Van Brocklin and Sonny Jurgensen. He helped the Eagles win the 1949 NFL League Championship in his rookie season. His ability to stop an approaching running back as well as effectively block for one made Bednarik a star from the beginning of his career, garnering him eight NFL Pro Bowl appearances and five consecutive NFL All-Pro First Team selections. Chuck was named the 1953 Pro Bowl MVP. He was the last “Sixty-Minute Man” in the NFL, in that he was one of the last to play both sides of the ball for an entire game. Bednarik played 14 seasons with the Eagles (1949-1962) leading them to two NFL League Championships (1949, 1960). His last second tackle of the Green Bay Packers’ Jim Taylor, in the waning seconds in the 1960 NFL title match, iced the game for Philadelphia taking the title once again. Chuck Bednarik was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1967 and the College Football Hall of Fame in 1969.
