Inducted 1967

Some still call it football's greatest game. The overtime NFL championship game between the Baltimore Colts and New York Giants is said to have made the pro league on TV. The man scoring the winning touchdown in sudden death for the Colts was Kenosha's Alan Ameche. Ameche had a fine pro career, leading the NFL in rushing as a rookie. Before going to the NFL, "The Horse" earned All American honors at the University of Wisconsin and was selected the Heisman Trophy winner in 1954. Ameche led the Badgers to the Rose Bowl. UCLA coach Red Sanders called Ameche "The strongest runner in football history, not excepting Bronco Nagurski." Before going to the University of Wisconsin, Ameche led Bradford High School to two state championships and starred in track and field, as well as football.
