The Golden Boy

Green Bay halfback and heartthrob Paul Hornung made only one stop to Busch Stadium (1963) but football fans in the Gateway City were well aware of the diverse talents of this Hall of Fame player. He could run, pass, kick, return kicks, and catch the ball out of the backfield. His 176 points in 1960 is a single season scoring record that may never be broken. And Hornung served his teammates in another area as well…Fuzzy Thurston, Packer Guard, said it best..”He keeps the autograph hounds away..because when you’re walking with Paul and they stop you, they sure as hell ain’t gonna ask for YOUR autograph!”
