Charles Louis “Chuck” Howley, born on June 28, 1936 in Wheeling, West Virginia, is a retired professional football player who spent his NFL career with the Dallas Cowboys and the Chicago Bears. He played collegiately at West Virginia University where he was selected for the All-Southern Conference thrice and won the Southern Conference Player of the Year in 1957. Aside from football, Howley was also a diving, wrestling, gymnastics and track varsity athlete.
The Chicago Bears of the National Football League drafted him out of the university in the first round of the 1958 NFL Entry Draft. He spent two seasons with the Bears and retired after an injury which he obtained in the 1959 camp. He went back to play in the National Football League in 1961 when he was traded to the Dallas Cowboys during the 1963 NFL Draft round nine. He appeared in 165 games for the Cowboys and has helped the team to two Super Bowls where he was once named as Super Bowl MVP.
According to many reviews, Howley’ physical advantage was his speed which made him a very effective linebacker. Together with Lee Roy Jordan and Edwards, he belonged to one of the best linebackers in the history of the national league. He made more than a hundred rushed yards for the 1968 and 1971 season and had 399 yards for his entire career. Howley retired after the 1973 season.
