1967 Championship Coverage

Thanks for putting up with the breaks between our posts. We’re back to present the final installment of The Fabulous Green Bay Packers, the 1968 publication of the Milwaukee Journal’s coverage of the “Three in a Row” championships from 1965-1967. Starting off, we have the center spread photo of the 1967 team. The booklet continues with the Western Division Playoff with the Rams in Milwaukee, as well as Ice Bowl and Super Bowl II coverage.

HOW SAD
Travis Williams (January 14, 1946 - February 17, 1991) was an American football player for the Green Bay Packers. Williams attended Contra Costa College and Arizona State University, before being selected in the 1967 NFL Draft at the insistence of Packers' coach Vince Lombardi. He returned four kickoffs for touchdowns in his rookie season in 1967, setting an NFL record. Among the returns were two in one game against the Cleveland Browns to tie another league record. He also set the record for career kickoff return average with 41.1 yards, while playing four seasons with the Packers and two with the Los Angeles Rams, before a knee injury ended his career prematurely. In the 1980s, Williams battled depression and addictions, and was discovered living in a homeless shelter. He died at age 45 on February 20, 1991, of heart failure.
