College Hall of Fame Football Player. A college football halfback, he was known as one of the “Four Horsemen of Notre Dame” on Coach Knute Rockne’s University of Notre Dame Fighting Irish champion footballs teams from 1922 to 1924. He teamed with quarterback Harry Stuhldreher, halfback Jim Crowley and fullback Elmer Layden under the tutelage of Coach Rockne to go 29-2-1 during that span, which was capped by a 1925 Rose Bowl win over Stanford University to give Notre Dame the College Football Championship. Their dominant performances on the field as a collective unit inspired sportswriter Grantland Rice to give them their now legendary nickname. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1970.
