Former Penn State All-American Dave Robinson Elected to Pro Football Hall of Fame


Former Penn State All-American offensive and defensive end Dave Robinson was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame this weekend, the sixth Penn Stater to ever be enshrined in Canton.

Robinson, a 1962 All-American for Rip Engle’s Nittany Lions, was a three-year letterwinner at Penn State. Joe Paterno was also an assistant coach that year. Robinson was drafted in the first round (14th overall) in the 1963 NFL draft and enjoyed a 12-year career as a linebacker for the Packers and the Redskins.

Robinson was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1997 and the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame in 1982. He joins Jack Ham, Franco Harris, “August” Mike Michalske, Lenny Moore, and Mike Munchak as Penn State’s representatives in Canton.

The enshrinement ceremony is set for Saturday, August 3.
