Robert Spillane Parents, Gretchen & Michael
Robert Spillane was born to parents Gretchen and Michael Spillane on December 14, 1995.
He comes from a blue-collar background, where his parents worked tirelessly for their livelihood while extending help to others whenever possible.
Robert’s father, in particular, served as a role model for integrity and generosity.
In addition to his immediate family, Robert has three brothers and a sister.
Furthermore, Robert’s grandfather, Johnny Lattner, was the 1953 Heisman Trophy winner and a two-time All-American halfback at Notre Dame.
The Pittsburgh Steelers selected Lattner in the first round of the 1954 NFL draft.
During his lone season, he accumulated over 1,000 all-purpose yards on offense and special teams and was named to the 1954 Pro Bowl.
Afterward, Lattner served in the United States Air Force for two years but suffered a severe knee injury that ended his professional football career.
In the late 1950s, Lattner ventured into coaching, working at St. Joseph’s High School in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and later at the University of Denver.
Moreover, he was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1979.
Sadly, Johnny Lattner passed away on February 12, 2016.
Robert stated “He wore No. 41 with the Steelers, so to be able to wear that number with that organization meant the world to me.
