Green Bay Packers coach Curly Lambeau once called Larry Craig the best blocking quarterback he’d ever coached. The 6’0”, 205-pound Craig led running plays and swung out in the flats for short passes.
On defense, the former University of South Carolina Gamecock became a passer’s nightmare from left defensive end. A six-time All Pro, Craig — nicknamed ‘Superman’ — recovered 11 fumbles and intercepted two passes with the Packers.
Craig played 11 seasons in Green Bay, from 1939-49. He played on Packers championship teams in his first season and in 1944.
