Thanks. Sports is definitely a discipline based activity that helps the mind and body. Adding this type of conditioning along with a strong Academic background will enhance a high school student's career path with job options in the future.

Since you're familiar with the New York Giants, Rich, I should mention that another old Giant was an engineer. Reserve quarterback Randy Dean from the late 1970s, was an industrial engineer from Northwestern.

An engineer we left out (learned of him too late): Karl Baldischwiler, formerly of the Baltimore Colts (in the '80s), is a civil engineer.

I agree that the "mold" is flawed, naperlou. None of the people pictured in this slide show would fit the mold.

Thanks for the heads-up on Warren Livingston, twk. I was not aware of his engineering background, although I remember him in the NFL.

Although I was aware of Charlie Johnson's military service, I was not aware that he concurrently played football and flew to his games on Weekends. Great information, Tool_Maker. Thanks.

I actually hand-wrote that Coolidge quote on a Post-It note in 1988, and have kept it in my desk drawer ever since, bobjengr. I love that quote.
