Bob Hyland’s No. 50 will also be retired on Saturday during Stepinac’s game against Chaminade. It is also Alumni Day, and the Crusaders will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Hyland’s 1963 Crusaders.
Hyland was an all-American center at Boston College and was selected in the first round of the NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers. He started for Vince Lombardi’s Packers, and helped them win Super Bowl II as a rookie. He ended up playing 11 seasons, including stints on the Chicago Bears, New York Giants and New England Patriots. (Hyland also played in the “Ice Bowl” against the Cowboys.)
Since his retirement, Hyland has been a businessman in White Plains and has been very active in the Stepinac community.
Stepinac and Chaminade are scheduled for a 1:30 kickoff on Saturday.
