Forgotten story about college sports, civil rights

Forgotten story about college sports, civil rights | Ethics in Sports | Scoop.it

When Division I college athletics is the topic at hand, the University of San Francisco Dons are rarely mentioned.

Instead, one is likely to watch or read about the University of Alabama Crimson Tide, the UCLA Bruins, the University of Connecticut Huskies, and other headline grabbers. However, there was a time when such was not the case.

Some call it the “best college football team you never heard of.” I am talking about the University of San Francisco/USF 1951 team, a gifted bunch that went 9-0.

To give you an idea of just how good the 1951 Dons were, eight members of the team went on to play in the National Football League. Three of those eight  would be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame/ Both running back Ollie Matson and defensive end Gino Marchetti were inducted in 1972 (first year of eligibility), and offensive tackle Bob St. Clair was inducted in 1990.

However, the player many consider the most talented off the 1951 Dons’ team was Burl Toler, who never played a single game of professional football. Toler, a linebacker, was seriously injured in the 1952 All-Star Game, which pitted college all-stars against the reigning champion pro team. The injury ended Toler’s playing career.
