15. My first sports hero!!

I happened to be there in person to see him play his last game for Coach Lombardi (Super Bowl II).

To me, Bart Starr will always be the quintessential GREAT quarterback - a great leader, a great person.

R.I.P. Bart, no one ever did it with more class.

16. For a Quarterback

who was a back-up on a winless Alabama team his senior year, he had a pretty good pro career, I'd say.
