for 23 years, but he is better known
for his football career. A fullback with the Massillon Tigers in 1905, he went on
to become a highly successful coach at many schools, including Texas A&M, Carlisle,
and Bucknell. In 1921 his Centre College Praying Colonels, featuring All-America
Bo McMillin, handed Harvard its first defeat in three years. In 1927, he coached
the Frankford Yellow Jackets of the National Football League.
