Paul Hornung got the title The Golden Boy while earning the Heisman Trophy at Notre Dame, but it was under coach Vince Lombardi with the Green Bay Packers that he actually earned it. Hornung became a key ingredient in the famed Packers' run-to-daylight sweep. A triple threat, Hornung held the Packers' scoring record at one time.
Despite the fact his career was interrupted by injury, military obligations and a gambling scandal, Hornung became a legend with the Packers. After retirement from football, he continued to do some broadcasting work and remained one of the most popular former Packers in Green Bay.
