Bob Long ’64 was part of three championship seasons with the Green Bay Packers from 1965 to 1967. After being a Third Team All American as a Shocker, he was drafted in the fourth round by Green Bay in 1964. He played on the Green Bay teams that won the NFL Championship in 1965, and won the first two Super Bowls in 1966 and 1967. That Packers team is the only team in NFL history to win three championships in a row. The bulk of Long’s seven-year pro career was spent with the Packers, but he also played with the Washington Redskins, the Atlanta Falcons and spent his final season as a pro with the Los Angeles Rams in 1970.
A member of the Kansas Hall of Fame and the Pizza Hut Shocker Sports Hall of Fame, Long is active in fundraising events for a number of nonprofits in Wisconsin, including Special Olympics, the Task Force Against Family Violence, and the Alzheimer’s Association. He is also a longstanding champion of Wichita State and the WSUAA, to which he has for years now contributed a one-of-a-kind Green Bay Packers live auction travel package — including Row 1 tickets to a select Packers game — to Rockin’ the Roundhouse, the alumni association’s largest fundraiser.
