Lon Evans played guard for the Green Bay Packers for just five seasons. During that time, the 6’2”, 225-pound Evans became an All-NFL choice twice and helped win the 1936 league championship.
When the Packers won the 1936 NFL title over the Boston Redskins in New York City, Evans made the rounds of NBC’s radio studios gathering autographs of NBC radio stars on a game ball.
A star player at Texas Christian University, Evans went into coaching and later became sheriff of Tarrant County, the Fort Worth area of north central Texas. He authored the book ‘The Purple Lawman.’
