Professional Football Player. For twelve seasons (1956 to 1967), he played at the punter and kicker positions in the National Football League with the New York Giants and Green Bay Packers. Born Donald Gene Chandler, he was raised in Oklahoma where he attended Will Rogers High School (Tulsa) and played collegiate football at the University of Florida. Selected by New York during the 5th round of the 1956 NFL Draft, Chandler experienced a world championship with the Giants while a rookie. As a Packer, he contributed to two world championship titles from the Lombardi dynasty era (which happened to be the first two Super Bowl contests in 1967 and 1968) and during Super Bowl II, he kicked a record 4 field goals, as Green Bay defeated the Oakland Raiders 33 to 14 played on January 14th, 1968. Chandler set a Packers' team record, when he kicked a 90-yard punt against the 49ers in 1965 and holds the team record of eight extra points in a regular season game, when he accomplished this against Atlanta in 1966. In 154 regular season games, he recorded 660 punts for 28,678 yards and totaled 530 points as a kicker. He was a participant in nine world championship contests. He achieved Pro-Bowl status in 1967. Chandler was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 1975 and was named to the NFL 1960s All-Decade team. (bio by: C.S.)
