Chester Marcol, a Polish immigrant, made a splash as a soccer-style rookie kicker with the Green Bay Packers in 1972, leading the National Football League in scoring and earning rookie of the year honors. He led the league in scoring again in 1974 and was a two-time All-Pro kicker. Known as the ?Polish Prince? he was one of the most popular Packers throughout the 1970s. He was released early in the 1980 season and began a long and harrowing descent into alcoholism and drug abuse. Today, he works as a drug and alcohol abuse counselor in Michigan?s Upper Peninsula, where he lives with his wife and three children. Marcol was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 1987.

Gary D'Amato covers the Green Bay Packers, golf, and the Olympic Games for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. He is a three-time Wisconsin Sportswriter of the Year and has won several national awards. D'Amato has co-authored other books about the Packers. He lives in Caledonia, WI with his family.
