Robert Carl "Bob" Zuppke
Birth: Jul. 2, 1879
Berlin, Germany
Death: Dec. 22, 1957
Champaign

Football coach at the University of Illinois from 1913 to 1941. Won four national championships. Invented such staples of the game as the huddle, the "flea-flicker" play, the screen pass, the pass-block, the long snap and the linebacker position. Bitter opponent of football scholarships, believing that "the honor of playing for Illinois is payment enough." (bio by: Stuthehistoryguy)
