May 26, 2019

Quarterback Bart Starr died today at the age of eighty five. He played for the Crimson Tide back in 1952, and later for coach Vince Lombardi and the Green Bay Packers. The Packers selected Starr out of the University of Alabama with the two hundredth pick in the 1956 draft. He led Green Bay to six division titles, five NFL championships, and wins in the first two Super Bowls. Starr’s time for Green Bay included the famed "Ice Bowl" in 1967. He had been in failing health since suffering two strokes and a heart attack in 2014.
