1964 Sportsman of the Year

We’re going to focus on the NFL on a broader scale today, rather than just on the Packers. In January 1964, NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle was named Sports Illustrated’s “Sportsman of the Year.” This is the feature article on him and the NFL at that time. We did choose to not include the article on the Chicago Bears’ championship victory over the New York Giants for the ’63 title. If you want to read that, then go on over to the Bearsville, U.S.A. site.

We included this L&M cigarettes advertisement along with our coverage, because it sure looks to us like that’s Green Bay’s FB Jim Taylor in the main picture.
