Biography

Professional American football player for the Green Bay Packers. Wearing # 30, he played Tailback and Linebacker from 1932 to 1941. At the time of his retirement, he was the NFL’s all time leading rusher. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of fame in 1964 and the Packer Hall of fame in 1972. Hinkle is a member of the 1930s all decade team. In 1997, the Packers' west practice field across Oneida Street from Lambeau Field was dedicated Clarke Hinkle Field.

At 5’ 11”, Hinkle was not physically large, but he is considered to be one of the most physical players of the 1930s. He was a workhorse running back and a savage blocker. As a linebacker, he was a tremendous blitzer and intimidating tackler.

Hinkle died on November 9, 1988 in Steubenville, Ohio, at the age of 79.
