Geocache Description:


PACKERS HALL OF FAME



BART STARR


Years with the Packers: 1956-71
Inducted: 1977
Position: Quarterback
Born Date: 1934
College: Alabama

Bart Starr was a 17th-round draft choice of the Green Bay Packers in 1956. He overcame adversity to become the unquestioned leader of the Packers and a championship legend when he retired after the 1971 season.

Early in his career, Starr shared signal calling duties with Tobin Rote and Vito ‘Babe’ Parilli. With a fresh start under coach Vince Lombardi in 1959, Starr began to blossom and assert himself. He led the Packers to six NFL championship games, losing only once, to the Philadelphia Eagles in 1960. While contemporaries like Johnny Unitas, Frank Ryan, Y.A. Tittle and John Brodie received more attention, Starr consistently won big games and piled up championships.

His poise and leadership earned him most valuable player status in both Super Bowl I and II.

When an injury ended his playing career before the 1972 season, Starr became an assistant coach under Dan Devine and helped the Packers win the Central Division championship that season.

In 1975, Starr was named head coach and general manger of the Packers. He posted a 52-76-3 record over the next nine seasons. His Packers advanced to the playoffs after the 1982 season.

Starr completed 61 percent of his passes in championship and playoff games. In 1966, he threw just three interceptions in 251 attempts. Between 1964 and ‘65 he set an NFL record by completing 294 passes without an interception, a record later eclipsed by Bernie Kosar.

“Anybody can play when there’s really nothing at stake,” Starr once said. “I really think the measure of the player is how well you play when you have to win.”
