Larry Craig

Packers Hall of Fame

Inducted 1973

Curly Lambeau once called Larry Craig the best blocking quarterback he’d ever coached. The 6’0”, 205-pound Craig led running plays and swung out in the flats for short passes.

On defense, the former University of South Carolina Gamecock became a passer’s nightmare from left defensive end. A six-time All Pro, Craig, nicknamed “Superman,” recovered 11 fumbles and intercepted two passes as a Packer.

Craig played 11 seasons in Green Bay, from 1939-’49. He played on Packer championship teams in his first season and in 1944.
