Team Member Information
When people think of famous quarterbacks for the Green Bay Packers they only think of Brett Favre. However, Brett Favre was a quarterback from 1992 to 2007 and the Green Bay Packers have been a team since 1919 – this leaves a lot of room for other star quarterbacks to have the spotlight. One of those quarterbacks was Bart Starr – quarterback for the Green Bay Packers from 1956 until 1971.
Both Green Bay athletes shared the spotlight for 15 years, making Green Bay Packers tickets for all seasons very difficult to find. Everyone knows Packer Season ticket holders own all seats at the legendary Lambeau Field.
Bryan Bartlett Starr was born on January 9th, 1934 in Montgomery, Alabama. In addition to being a legendary quarterback for the Green Bay Packers, Bart Starr was also the MVP of the first two Superbowls. Starr lead the Packers to win not one, but five NFL Championships in 1961, 1962, 1965, 1966, and 1967. Starr is one of five Green Bay Packers to have his number (15) retired by the team. While he was still a key player for the Green Bay Packers, Bart Starr and his wife Cheryl founded Rawhide Boys Ranch in New London, Wisconsin. It is a facility designed to assist at-risk youth throughout the state of Wisconsin and to this day Starr still works with the foundation.
Even though Bart Starr retired in 1972 he was still a vital member of the Packers as an assistant coach. In 1975 Starr became the head coach of the Green Bay Packers. Although his record as a coach was not as outstanding as his record while playing for the Packers, Bart Starr is and was a respected and important member of the Green Bay Packers history and of the NFL. The NFL even has an award named after him in which they award the Bart Starr Award annually to an NFL player who shows outstanding character throughout the season and his career.
