Coach–During the roaring twenties of the 20th century, no high school football coach in the country was more inspiring than this gentleman. Between the 1922 and 1929 seasons, he led the Red and Black Links of Lincoln High School to 68 victories, 3 losses and 2 ties for multiple state championships. His skills also included being an excellent basketball coach, leading Lincoln High to two state championship titles in the late 20s. As head basketball coach for the University of Nebraska he led the Cornhuskers to a tie for the championship of the Big Six Conference in 1937. During World War II he went into the service of his country. The first really modern football stadium of Lincoln High was made possible through the disciplined success of this fine coach.
