Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. William Clarke Hinkle (April 10, 1909 - November 9, 1988) was a professional American football player for the Green Bay Packers. While playing in Bucknell University, Hinkle led the team to an undefeated season in 1931. Hinkle's coach at Bucknell, Carl Snavely, called him: "Without a doubt, the greatest defensive back I have ever seen or coached." Those words were uttered by a man who had seen and coached many of the nation's best. When Hinkle left Bucknell University, he signed with the Green Bay Packers and played mainly fullback on offense. He played with the Packers throughout his whole ten-year career. When he retired Hinkle was the NFL all time leading rusher with 3850 career yards. He surpassed the old record of 3511 yards held by Cliff Battles.show more
