VEAN GREGG – Baseball
A crafty southpaw pitching performer far ahead of his years in baseball, he led the American League in winning percentage by compiling 23-7 won-lost mark in 1911, his first campaign upstairs, then had 20-13 logs for the Cleveland Indians the next two seasons. From Aberdeen.

An electrifying runner on the gridiron, he was an All-American at the University of Washington and went on to greater fame in the professional ranks, earning a Pro Football Hall of Fame berth and a place on the San Francisco 49ers all-time backfield. He hung around for a long time in the pro ranks with great justification.


A brilliant University of Washington oarsmen in 1924 and ’25, he vaulted into the varsity crew coaching job at his alma mater in 1926 and remained as the Husky coach for 33 years, an illustrious career during which his alma mater prevailed sensationally.
