"'Hooks' Mylin Succumbs.
LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) - Edward Everett "Hooks" Mylin, football coach of the year in 1937 when he built an undefeated team in his first season at Lafayette, died Thursday at the age of 80. A distinguished quarterback during his undergraduate days at Franklin and Marshall, Mylin landed his first coaching assignment in 1919 at the Massanutten Academy in Virginia. At the time of his retirement in 1950 he was head coach at New York University. He was inducted into the National Football Foundation's Hall of Fame in 1974. Following the brief stint in Virginia, Mylin coached several years at Iowa State College, then was head coach at Lebanon Valley from 1923 to 1933. He joined Bucknell as head coach in 1934, and his first team scored at 25-0 victory over the University of Miami in the inaugural Orange Bowl game. Lafayette hired Mylin in 1937. During the ensuing three years, he built a 36-24-1 record for the Leopards. His 1940 team went undefeated. Mylin left Lafayette 1940 to work for the Army, but he returned for one year in 1946. He joined New York University a year later, but resigned three years later, complaining about the team's limited practice. "Its just impossible to buck the teams we have to meet." he said. He is survived by his widow, Rosa Shoffstall Mylan [sic] of Lancaster."
