Charles Philip "Chuck" Bednarik was born May 1, 1925, Bethlehem, Pa.

Known as Concrete Charlie, Bednarik was the NFL's last full-time, two-way player. He died in March.

Bednarik played center and linebacker in his 14 seasons with the Eagles. He helped the team win its last NFL championship in 1960.
