Bobby Bell - Super Bowl 1

Bobby Bell

Bobby Bell, a former All-State high school quarterback from North Carolina, made front-page headlines by merely  signing with the University of Minnesota in 1959. Bobby played on the National Championship team for Minnesota in 1960 and played in the 1961 and 1962 Rose Bowls. He won the MVP Award for Minnesota in 1962. Following his collegiate success, Bobby joined the Chiefs as a highly touted defensive end. Before his third season, coach Hank Stram switched Bobby to linebacker based on his exceptional speed, agility and size. After that, Bobby gained superstardom, winning All-AFL/AFC nine times. He was the first Chief to be enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1983.
