Greg Johnson, Managing Editor of Penn Today wrote an awesome article about the history of Penn Law alumnus, John Heisman. Heisman was a former player and coach on the University of Pennsylvania football team. From 1920-22, Heisman coached the Quakers. Penn had a 16-10-2 record during his tenure.
Kurt Vonnegut Cornell '44 was also known to write about sports when he was a member of The Sun news board. At least when the spirit moved him. In 1941, the Cornell rugby team was having a particularly tough time of it, and Vonnegut pointed out the problem in this column from May 1, 1941.
