Tobin Cornelius Rote (January 18, 1928 - June 27, 2000) was among the top three quarterbacks in terms of passing touchdowns (3), rushing yards (1) and rushing touchdowns (2) during his tenure with the Green Bay Packers. Rote led the Rice University Owls to the Southern Conference championship and a Cotton Bowl victory in 1949 as a senior. The Packers took Rote in the second round of the 1950 NFL Draft, immediately plugging him in at the quarterback role in 1950. In 1956, Rote set an NFL record with 29 touchdowns (18 passing, 11 rushing), the highest single-season total to date and the highest during the 12-game era. Tobin played 13 years in the National and American Football Leagues with the Packers (950-1956), the Detroit Lions (1957-1959), the San Diego Chargers (1963-1964) and the Denver Broncos (1966). He also played three seasons in the Canadian Football League with the Toronto Argonauts. He led the league twice in attempts and completions, twice in passing touchdowns, once in completion percentage and once in passing yards. He led Green Bay to the 1957 NFL Championships, and then led San Diego to the 1963 AFL Championship. He was named to two NFL/AFL Pro Bowls, was a 1963 AFL All-Pro First Team selection and was named the 1963 AFL’s Most Valuable Player. Tobin Rote collected 18,850 career passing yards and 148 touchdowns on 1,329 completions in 2,907 attempts. He rushed for 3,128 and 37 touchdowns in his career, scoring a total of 228 points.
