Inscription. A triple-threat halfback with a nose for the end zone, Hornung was a playmaker and leader on Vince Lombardi's first three championship teams. "A great pressure player," was how Lombardi once described him. Hornung, who doubled as a kicker, set an NFL single-season record that stood for 46 years when he scored 176 points in 1960. The next year, he was the MVP of the league and the NFL''s championship game. Hornung played for the Packers from 1957 to 1962 and again from 1964 to 1966. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1986. Eleven years earlier, he had been enshrined in the Packers Hall of Fame.
