Student, Athlete, Coach

This photo dates circa 1908, roughly a decade and a half into Heisman's 36-year coaching career. Born in Cleveland's Ohio City, he grew up in Pennsylvania and went on to attend Brown University and the University of Pennsylvania. Epitomizing the term student-athlete, he excelled on and off the football field at both universities, earning his law degree from the University of Pennsylvania.
