A former collegiate basketball player and track star, Del Shofner possessed the athleticism necessary to stand out in the National Football League during his playing days. As a result, Shofner was recognized for five different Pro Bowls, and quickly established himself as a star player for both the Los Angeles Rams and the New York Giants.
