Dick Kazmaier

Dick Kazmaier was an American football player for Princeton University from 1949 through 1951 and winner of the 1951 Heisman Trophy. As a halfback, kicker and quarterback, he ended his career third all time in Princeton history with over 4000 yards of offense and 55 touchdowns. His career was capped in 1951 as he was named an All American as well as winning the Maxwell Award and the Heisman Trophy.

His team was the best in the East in 1951, and was sixth ranked nationally. He was the nation's total offense leader in his senior year and the most accurate passer in the country.

The Chicago Bears drafted him in the 1952 draft, but he declined to play pro football, instead going to Harvard Business School.

Kazmaier was the first Heisman winner to reach four figures in points and the first to win by more than 1,000 points. Kazmaier won every section and had 506 first place votes, more than all the other candidates combined.
