Frank Gatski played center on the offensive line during the Browns' dominant years in the AAFC and NFL.
#52, he was strong, consistent, and an exceptional pass blocker who never missed a game or practice in high school, college or pro football.
After a 12-season career, Gatski was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1985. Abe Gibron, his former Browns teammate, served as his presenter.
Frank was a member of the famed Class of 1985 that included Joe Namath, O.J. Simpson, Pete Rozelle, and Roger Staubach.
