Recommended Posts

A native of Danville, Ill., Edmund Raymond "Zeke" Bratkowski turned down, at his father?s insistence, an offer to try out for the Brooklyn Dodgers and headed for the University of Georgia, where he set numerous conference and NCAA records in passing and punting. In 1952, as a junior, he led the nation in passing; the next year, as a senior, he led the country in punting with a 42.6 average. "Zeke" played 14 years in the NFL for the Chicago Bears, Los Angeles Rams and, from 1963 to his retirement in 1971, the Green Bay Packers. Bartkowski and Bart Starr developed a close professional relationship. Bratkowski became known as "super sub" as the backup to Starr in the Packers? 1967 and 1968 championship years. His career stats: 762 completions (51.2 percent) for 10,291 yards and 65 TDs, and a 38.7 average on 90 punts. Bratkowski has remained in the game for a number of years as a respected quarterback coach.
