When Coach Vince Lombardi needed a placekicker prior to the 1965 season, he called on the nine-year New York Giant veteran Don Chandler. From 1965-’67, the Packers relied on Chandler’s accurate toe when key games were on the line.

The 6’2”, 205-pound former University of Florida Gator star kicked 48 field goals and 117 extra points as a Packer. In 1965, he set a team record with a 90-yard punt versus the San Francisco 49ers. He averaged 41.9 yards per punt as a Packer.
