Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Louis Creekmur (January 22, 1927 - July 5, 2009[1]) was an NFL left offensive tackle/guard for the Detroit Lions from 1950-59. He was also used as a defensive lineman in critical situations. In 1996, he was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. During his 10 seasons with the Lions, he helped the club to four title game appearances in the 1950s and three NFL titles (1952, 1953 and 1957). A large degree of the success of Detroit's more well-known offensive stars during this time (Bobby Layne and Doak Walker in particular) can be attributed to Creekmur. The 6-4, 255-pound star from William and Mary was a force at both tackle and guard for the Lions, and he even spent one season (1955) filling in at defensive tackle following Les Bingaman's retirement.show more
