JOHN MCGOVERNGame 055 | October 10, 1956 | John McGovern
A native of Arlington, Minnesota, McGovern was a 148-pound quarterback shortly after the turn of the century. About that time, Eastern newspapers began to recognize the caliber of football played farther West, and in 1909, McGovern was named first team All-American by Walter Camp and Look magazine. He was honored by Dunkers on the 50th anniversary of his first year as a Gopher football player.
