Inducted 1986

Though he, like Bobby Dillon after him, had sight in just one eye, Irv Comp set a Packer record with 10 interceptions in his rookie season, 1943.

In 1944, the 6’3”, 200-pound Comp threw for over 1,000 yards and 12 touchdowns. He led the Packers to that season’s NFL championship win over the New York Giants.

A prolific passer at tiny St. Benedict College, Comp was a Milwaukee native. He was a Packer for seven seasons, from 1943-’49.
