Former Penn State two-way end Dave Robinson is one of two seniors nominees for the Pro Football Hall of Fame class of 2013, it was announced today.
Robinson, who played for the great Green Bay Packers teams of the 1960s, and former Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Oilers defensive lineman Curly Culp will join 15 yet-to-be named modern candidates on the list of finalists for the class of 2013. The vote will take place on Feb. 2.
Robinson joined the Green Bay Packers as the team's first round draft pick in 1963. He immediately made his presence felt on a team that dominated pro football during that decade.
The 6'3", 245-pound product of Penn State helped anchored the Packers defense as the team enjoyed sustained success. He helped Green Bay to three straight NFL championships including victories in Super Bowls I and II.
After ten seasons with the Packers, Robinson finished his NFL career by playing two years with the Washington Redskins (1973-74).
Robinson played end on both offense and defense for coach Rip Engle's teams at Penn State from 1960 through 1962. He is a native of Mount Holly, N.J.
