A Visit With Mr. Dale

WR Carroll Dale played for the Green Bay Packers from 1965-1972, after spending five seasons (1960-’64) with the Los Angeles Rams. While with the Packers (which is all we’re concerned about, right?), Dale played in 111 games, amassing 275 catches for 5,422 yards (a 19.7 yard average), and 35 touchdowns.

Dale was inducted into the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame in 1976, Packers Hall of Fame in 1979 and into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1987. Carroll Dale Stadium, the football stadium of Dale's alma mater, J. J. Kelly High School, is named for him. Dale currently resides in Wise, Virginia, where he serves as Asst. Vice Chancellor for Athletic Development at the University of Virginia's College at Wise.
