Birth: 1904
Death: Mar. 5, 1968

The contributions of the the 6'3", 215-pound Darling anchored the Green Bay Packers offensive line and helped propel the club to greatness. With Darling at center, the Packers won three championships in a row, a feat only once equaled (by Lombardi's last three Packer squads) but never surpassed. Darling's career was brief, ending after the 1931 season. He went out a champion.

Darling remained active in the Packers organization long after his retirement, first becoming a member of the team's Board of Directors and later being elevated to the Executive Committee. It was during his tenure on the Committee that the Packers hired Vince Lombardi, setting the stage for one of the greatest dynasties in professional sports. He was elected to the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame in 1970.
