Green Bay’s Arnie Herber

We’re eight days from the opener and the final cuts have been made to the roster, so there might be a few slow news days until mid-week. So, we’re continuing our posts of the Packers of the Past booklet from 1965.

He wasn’t “Green Bay’s” Arnie Herber just because he played for the Packers — he was a native of the city and a graduate of West High School. After matriculating one year at UW-Madison, he transferred to Regis College in Denver, Colorado before debuting with the Packers in 1930. After quarterbacking the team for eleven seasons, he retired — only to come back and play for the New York Giants in 1944-45 during the war.
