Perhaps no defensive player in the history of the NFL has been feared as much as Dick Butkus. From 1965-1973, he terrorized opponents of the Chicago Bears with punishing hits. Born and raised in Chicago, Butkus starred at the University of Illinois, where he was so dominant that the best linebacker in college football every year now earns the Dick Butkus Award. Butkus is a member of the college and pro football halls of fame and also the NFL’s 75th Anniversary All-Time Team. Even though the Bears teams he played on never even made the playoffs, Dick Butkus was a hero to fans in Chicago and around the world, and he helped fill stadiums at home and on the road.
