Lou Montgomery '41

- An exciting and elusive running back, he was a major offensive contributor to the Boston College teams that won 19 of 20 regular season games in his junior and senior seasons and earned invitations to the 1940 Cotton Bowl and 1941 Sugar Bowl.

- Tragically, because of the segregation laws of the day, he was not allowed to participate in either post-season game. His undaunted spirit and unwavering support of his teammates in those games made him a "Champion" in every sense of the word.

- Inducted into the Boston College Varsity Club Athletic Hall of Fame in 1997.
