"The man who has held an all-time Packers record for longer than most NFL teams have existed has died. Bobby Dillon was 89.
The team announced Dillon’s passing on Wednesday; he passed on August 22. From 1952 through 1959, Dillon played safety for Green Bay. Dillon intercepted 52 passes."

As a youngter I saw the one eyed Bobby Dillon play in the old City Stadium on Green Bay's East side which is now where East HS plays their games.

“Look what he did,” former Packers G.M. Ron Wolf said in 2008, via Cliff Christl of “Six years on a first team all-pro. [Detroit’s] Yale Lary got in there because he was a really good player, but he also was an exceptional punter. But Dillon played on a much poorer team and he had six years he was All-Pro.”

If you are not the lead dog the view never changes.
