Princeton tailback Dick Kazmaier led his Tigers to two undefeated seasons and led the nation in total offense his senior year in 1951.

"I was called to the dean's office on the campus at Princeton," Kazmaier said, "and I didn't know why I was coming but I was told there that I had won the Heisman Trophy. And I said, 'That's really wonderful,' and I went back to class."

Though professional football called, Kazmaier decided to further his education and received an MBA from Harvard.

"I enjoyed very much playing with the people I played with and if it wasn't going to be a good career and if it wasn't going to be lucrative then, why not stop while you were ahead," Kazmaier said. "And I felt I really accomplished about as much as you could accomplish."

After serving as chairman of the Council on Physical Fitness under President Ronald Reagan, Kazmaier is now the president of Kazmaier Associates, a sports marketing and financial services company.
