FROM CHICAGO BEARS WEBSITE: During the 1950's and 1960's, the Chicago Bears were famed for their ferocious, highly effective defensive teams that made the Bears perennial championship contenders in the National Football League. During most of these years, the Bears' defensive wheelhorse was middle linebacker Bill George, a 6-2, 230-pound Wake Forest product who stepped into a new position evolving in pro football in the early 50s and who did the job so well that few have ever matched his proficiency. Bill starred in the NFL for 15 years and his premier performances have never been forgotten. Proof of this comes from his 1974 election into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The sport's highest honor was formally bestowed on Bill and the other three members of the 1974 class-Tony Canadeo, Lou Groza and Dick (Night Train) Lane-at ceremonies at the pro gridiron showplace on July 27, 1974.
