Legendary Cleveland Browns wide receiver helped the group to determine a dynasty during its 1st 10 years around. He was a quarterback in senior high school and was recruited like a halfback for Ohio Condition, but played just three video games before a personal injury sidelined him. He received three NFL championships using the Browns and was chosen towards the Pro Dish 3 x. He was raised in Hudson, northeast Ohio, the child of blue-collar Italian immigrants. Lou Groza was another Hall of Famer who performed alongside Lavelli within the inaugural 1948 Cleveland Browns group.
