Cleaning out some old stuff, I came across an issue of SI that had an article on the Slver anniversary All-American Awards - given to the 25 outstanding members of the class of 1939.
One of them went to William F. "Bill" Osmanski (now an HC Hall of Fame member). Here is the text:
"Nobody has worn #24 for the Crusaders since this famous fullback. He worked his way through Northwestern's Dental School by playing brilliant ball for the Chicago Bears. A marine for 3 years, he served at an evacuation hospital in Okinawa. He now lectures at Northwestern, practicing de ntistry and serving on two hospital staffs."
If any of you would like this SI issue, just let me known I will mail it to you. (The ads alone are entertaining, but the honor to one of HC's own does make this special.
