Professional Football Player. For ten seasons (1946 to 1955), he played at the defensive-tackle, tackle and middle-guard positions in the National Football League with the Chicago Bears, Boston Yanks, New York Bulldogs and Philadelphia Eagles. He attended Frankford High School (Philadelphia) where he was a four-sports athlete excelling in basketball, track, wrestling and football. Jarmoluk earned an athletic scholarship to Temple University and continued playing football, as well as basketball, track, shot put and discus throwing. He was selected by the Detroit Lions during the 5th round of the 1945 NFL Draft. Before beginning his professional career, he served with the US Army during World War II and was a participant in the Battle of the Bulge. While overseas, he was dealt to the Bears. Jarmoluk experienced a world championship in his rookie year, as Chicago captured the 1946 NFL Title. During the 1949 season, he was acquired by Philadelphia and would fulfill his dream of playing for his home team while being a member of the Eagles' world championship squad. He appeared in 118 regular season games, earning Pro-Bowl honors in 1951. Following his playing career, he coached football at Lansdale Catholic High School in the Philadelphia-area and later worked for 30-years at Packaging Corp. of America. He was inducted into the Temple University Athletics Hall of Fame in 1975. He died from a heart attack. (bio by: C.S.)
