Gordon Soltau - 1955 Bowman

Gordon Leroy “Gordy” Soltau (January 25, 1925 - October 26, 2014) enlisted in the United States Navy after graduating high school during World War II and joined the first class of Navy Seals, then called frogmen. An accomplished athlete in high school, Gordy entered the University of Minnesota Duluth to play football following his military service. Soltau’s agility and speed earned him numerous accolades during his college playing days as he played in the East-West Shrine Game and was a member of the college all-stars that defeated the NFL Champion Philadelphia Eagles in 1950. The Green Bay Packers took Gordy in the third round of the 1950 NFL Draft, then immediately traded him to NFL’s new San Francisco 49ers. By his third year in Niners uniform, Soltau led the NFL in scoring in 1952 and 1953 performing both as a wide receiver and place kicker. He played nine seasons in the Bay Area (1950-1958), was named to the 1952 NFL All-Pro First Team and was selected for three NFL Pro Bowls. Gordy Soltau collected 3,387 receiving yards on 249 receptions scoring 25 touchdowns. He added 284 extra points and 70 field goals for a total of 644 career points.
