In 1980, Marcol’s last season of his nine-year career as the Packers’ placekicker, he led the team to a bizarre overtime win against the Chicago Bears. In a sequence that would quickly secure itself as one of football’s best finishes, he turned possible humiliation into unexpected jubilation and renewed tensions between the Packers and their longtime nemesis.

Where are they now?

Marcol, now a resident of Dollar Bay in the Upper Michigan peninsula, recalls his time in Green Bay with great fondness and appreciation.

Marcol stays busy caring for his wife and three children at home, ages 3, 7 and 15. He also maintains a close relationship with a 24-year-old daughter from a previous marriage.

After working part time in the juvenile justice system following the kicker’s retirement, he made the decision to commit himself to his family full-time. While he teaches youth soccer and spends time volunteering in other community work, the family heads his list of priorities.
