Heisman Hopefuls

Edited by Albert Kim and Mark Mravic

THE PATRIARCH
The Heisman Trophy was originally called the Downtown Athletic
Club Trophy. It was renamed in 1936 to honor John Heisman, the
club's first athletic director. Heisman coached football from
1892 to 1927 at eight colleges and was on the winning end of the
most lopsided game in college football history, Georgia Tech's
222-0 drubbing of Cumberland in 1916. At which of the following
schools did Heisman not coach?
