1961 Topps
Paul Hornung

Am I wrong in thinking that in 1961 the NFL took a backseat to College Football? At least that's my understanding.

But whether it was pro or college, Hornung was a star.

The 1956 Heisman Trophy winner from Notre Dame, Honung was drafted first overall by the Green Bay Packers in 1957. His Hall-of-Fame career included MVP honors in 1961.

But I wonder if the "Golden Boy" will better be remembered for his exploits at Notre Dame. He won the trophy as the best college athlete in 1956 despite being on a losing team. Notre Dame went 2-8 that season.
