Bob Hoernschemeyer - 1955 Bowman

Robert James “Bob” “Hunchy” Hoernschmeyer (September 25, 1925 - June 18, 1980) (RB) led the nation in 1943 in total offense for Indiana University, highlighted by a 54-13 pummeling of the University of Nebraska Cornhuskers when he went 14-18 with six touchdowns. Hunchy spent 1945 in the United States Navy serving in the final months of World War II. The New York Giants selected Hoernschmeyer in the 11th round of the 1947 NFL Draft, though he chose to play in the All-America Football Conference with the Chicago Rockets (1946-1947), the Brooklyn Dodgers (1947-1948) and the Chicago Hornets (1949). He joined the Detroit Lions of the National Football League from 1950-1955. In eleven season of professional football, Bob scored 234 total points of 39 all-purpose touchdowns and amassed 6,801 all-purpose yards. A sort of jack-of-all-trades, especially in the backfield, Hoernschmeyer threw for 4,302 passing yards on 319 completions in 714 attempts; he rushed for 4,548 yards on 1,059 attempts; he caught 109 passes for 1,139 receiving yards and he collected 1,114 punt and kick return yards on 50 attempts. Bob Hoernschmeyer was named to two straight NFL Pro Bowl appearances in 1951-1952. In 1952 and 1953, Bob led the Lions in rushing yards and attempts as Detroit marched to back-to-back NFL Championships.
