Glenn "Pop" Warner 1871-1954, American football coach who created key moves that are still used in modern day games. Pop Warner was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame at its inaugural class in 1951! He built a premier football program at the Carlisle Indian Industrial School, coached the Pittsburgh and Stanford teams to 4 national championships and was head coach at the University of Georgia, Iowa Agricultural College, Cornell University (where he had been a football player and captain of his team), Carlisle, Pittsburgh, Stanford and Temple Universities. During his era, he had the most wins of any coach in college football history. Warner developed a junior football program called the Pop Warner Little Scholars, giving the opportunity to children all over to learn the game and how to be a team player. Here is a hand written and signed letter, c. 1926, on his official stationery from Palo Alto during his coaching time at Stanford, in which he says: "Rule: you had a very fine offense during your coaching at Fresno and my advice would be to stick strictly close to what your experience has proved to be effective rather than to do a lot of experimenting with a new formation." He goes on to mention that there are few good coaches in the Pacific area but there is hope for UCLA. Wonderful sports history!
