A people still Haven to forgotten a said Robinson shaking his head sadly and referring to Hornung a one year suspension in 1963 after the former All american from notre Dame admitted to having gambled on football games. A they just wont let him alone a Robinson went on. A i done to understand what goes on in some Peoples minds. Some of them asked him if he wanted to bet when he got off the bus. To me Paul is a real Fine athlete. I was just overjoyed to see what he did in this Hornung did so much so much that really Wasny to expected of him that he almost overshadowed Rookie Gale Sayers who accounted for six touchdowns in the Chicago bears runaway against san Francisco a forty liners. When it was All Over and the packers had beaten the Colts to take Over the Western division Lead in the National football league Hornung took Little part in the general cheering. He sat quietly in front of his locker instead and softly mumbled his repeated thanks each time someone came Over and said a Good game but he had to be doing some deep thinking. He had to be thinking How he had managed to score Only three touchdowns in 12 previous games this year How he had been benched for part of the season and How a lot of people had been saying the Golden boy had had it. Hornung showed pm they were All wrong sunday. He a did it even though he was knocked dizzy after sweeping around end for a nine Yard touchdown in the third Quarter. A i did no to know where i was but i knew it was a touchdown a he laughed about it later. They helped the husky 30-year-old halfback to the Bench after that one his third to of the contest but he Wasny to finished yet he returned to score again on a two Yard plunge and after the Colts narrowed the packers margin to 35-27 in the final Quarter Hornung Shook Loose with a Bart Starr pass to Complete a 65-Yard scoring play and end All possible Hope for Baltimore. When Colt coach Don Simla unhappily discussed the game after it was All Over he said the turning Point was Robinsons interception of a Gary Cuozzo pass with seconds remaining in the first half.

The packers were All Over Hornung with their congratulations after the game he played against the Colts. They were delighted to have their big Guy Back.
