Green Bay Packers fans have a soft spot in their hearts for the guys who won the first two Vince Lombardi Super Bowl trophies. So many of Lombardi’s players have gone on to be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH. So it is with Dave Robinson, one of the best linebackers Green Bay has ever seen.
Robinson was a standout football player at Penn State in the early 60s. He started 55 straight games for the Nittany Lions. His senior year (1962), he was named a First Team All-American, College Lineman of the Year, and was even named College Player of the Year by the Newark Athletic Club. In 1997, Robinson was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.
