Stanley Robert Heath (March 5, 1927 – September 26, 2010) was a quarterback in the National Football League who played 12 games for the Green Bay Packers. In 1949, the Green Bay Packers used the 5th pick in the 1st round of the 1949 NFL Draft to sign Heath out of the University of Nevada, Reno, where he was the nation's top passer. Previously, he had been a member of the Wisconsin Badgers. Heath was the first NCAA quarterback to throw for over 2,000 yards in a season, a mark that would not be surpassed for fifteen years. He finished 5th in the Heisman Trophy voting in 1948. Heath only played one season with the Packers before moving to the Canadian Football League.
