Fuzzy Thurston, a guard...

...for the Green Bay Packers who was one of only a handful of players to play on six N.F.L. champions, died at age 80. From his obit in the Times:

Thurston graduated from Altoona (WI) High School, where there was no football team, and went to Valparaiso University in Indiana on a basketball scholarship. He did not play football until his junior year.
