Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Richard Marvin "Dick" Butkus (born December 9, 1942) is a former American football player for the Chicago Bears. He was drafted in 1965 and he is also widely regarded as one of the best and most durable linebackers of all time. Butkus starred as a football player for the University of Illinois and the Chicago Bears. He became a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1979. He played 9 seasons in the NFL for the Chicago Bears. Billed at 6 ft 3 in, 245 lbs., he was one of the most feared and intimidating linebackers of his time. The youngest of seven children, Lithuanian-American Butkus grew up in the Roseland area of Chicago's south side. He played high school football for coach Bernie O'Brien at Chicago Vocational School, where he met his lifelong friends Patrick O'Neill, Tyler Volk, and Eric Parker. All three played linebacker with Butkus in high school. They were known in the conference as the "Ferocious Quartet."show more
