After a standout college career at Utah State, Lionel Aldridge became one of the few rookies to start for coach Vince Lombardi. Drafted by the Green Bay Packers in 1962, he played a role in three straight NFL Championships (1965-67), including the Packers victories in Super Bowls I and II.
Aldridge worked as sports analyst in Milwaukee and for Packers radio until developing paranoid schizophrenia in the late 1970s. He worked as an advocate for the homeless and mentally ill until his death in 1998.
