Decades before he became a Hall of Fame captain for the University of Florida and the head coach of the Green Bay Packers, the cards were stacked against him. Losing his mother early in life and having an absent father meant his older sister became his primary caregiver. Impoverished and with no direction, Lindy’s hardships took him down a wrong path, until one fateful opportunity.
