Bobby Dan Dillon (born February 23, 1930) was an American football defensive back for the Green Bay Packers. Despite only having one working eye, Bobby Dillon is the all-time Green Bay Packer's career interceptions leader with 52. He had 9 interceptions in one season three times, with a stretch between 1953-58 where he had 48 interceptions, averaging 8 interceptions per season. He was the second player in NFL history to record 50 interceptions. As a paradox of his blindness, Dillon was nicknamed "The Hawk" by Packer fans.
Bobby played for Temple High School and then for The University of Texas, where he was an All-American.
In 2011, the Professional Football Researchers Association named Dillon to the PRFA Hall of Very Good Class of 2011
