Gary Knafelc (born January 2, 1932 in Pueblo, Colorado) is a former American football wide receiver who played 10 seasons in the National Football League (1954-1963). He attended the University of Colorado. Knafelc is the only player to ever be carried off the City Stadium or Lambeau Field turf by fans. That happened after he caught a 28-yard touchdown pass from Tobin Rote in the final minute to beat the Detroit Lions, 20-17, in the 1955 season opener.

He has been the radio commentator for the Packers since 1964.
