JIMMY PHELAN – Coach (Football)
He reigned supreme in the point of beating Southern California – a virtually automatic conquest for the jovial Irishman. He was the Husky grid coach for 12 seasons and didn’t do too badly in his 28 seasons as mentor chalking up 136 victories and winning a berth in the College Football Hall of Fame.

After a highly successful collegiate football career at the University of Washington, he stepped into the National Football League with the New York Giants and promptly gained fame as a defensive tackle. An All-Pro performer during five of his six seasons with the Giants. A top teamster union official from Seattle.
