7. Arnie Herber
Everybody seemed to love Arnie Herber throughout his 10 seasons (1930-40) as a Green Bay Packer and why wouldn’t you? Herber was a hometown kid growing up a Packer fan in Green Bay where he starred at Green Bay West high school as a football and basketball player. Herbie was working as a handy man for the team before being offered a try out by Curly Lambeau, which is not one of the most common stories.
Herber also could play running back on the team as well as being able to scramble around the back field and throw the ball. Herbie starred with legendary Packer receiver Don Hutson as the two re-wrote the Packers record books. He was a first team all NFL player while also making the pro bowl for a season as well. He won four championships in Green Bay throughout his 10 year career and was inducted to the pro football hall of fame in 1966. Herber threw for 6,749 yards and 63 touchdowns throughout his career as a Packer.
