|From The Des Moines Register. Nile Kinnick, Iowa Hawkeye.|
See blog post links below for the Nile Kinnick connection. If you have more information about the Maxwell Club awards to local Philadelphia area high school, college and sandlot players in the late 1930's/early 1940's I would love to hear from you. My uncle Bob Richards played football at Roman Catholic High School, graduated in 1939, went on to sandlot football with the Zephyr A.C. (probably Athletic Club but looking for more information) circa 1940/41 and won a local Philadelphia area Maxwell Award. Kinnick won the national Maxwell Trophy in 1939. Still in search for a possible crossing of paths of Nile and Bob Richards, resulting in the signed photo postcard from Nile to my dad John Richards. See below.
