In 1972, Chester Marcol remedied a problem that had nagged the Green Bay Packers since Don Chandler’s retirement following the 1967 season. Marcol became the Packers leading scorer from 1972-74, 1976-77 and in ‘79. He led the league in scoring his rookie season and again in 1974.
The 6’0”, 190-pound Marcol was the Packers’ first soccer-style kicker. He scored 521 points during his Packers career, including 120 field goals and 155 extra points from 1972-80.
In the opening game of the 1980 season, he ran for his only touchdown on a blocked field goal to beat the Bears in overtime 12-6.
