Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ernest Alfred Stautner (April 20, 1925 - February 16, 2006) was a German-born American football player and coach who starred as a defensive tackle with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Born in Prinzing near Cham, Bavaria in Germany, Stautner's family immigrated to East Greenbush, New York when he was three years old. He served in the United States Marine Corps before attending Boston College, where he was a four-year starter as an offensive and defensive tackle. He earned a bachelor's degree in psychology in 1950. After being selected in the second round of the 1950 NFL Draft, Stautner played his entire career with the Steelers from 1950 to 1963. Despite being small even for his day at 6-1 and 235 pounds, he distinguished himself as one of the best defensive linemen of his era as he became the cornerstone of the Steelers bruising defense.show more
