Dick Kazmaier, a halfback, kicker and quarterback  from Princeton University who won the Heisman Trophy in 1951, died in Boston from heart and lung disease. He was 82.

He ended his career third all time in Princeton history with over 4000 yards of offense and 55 touchdowns. Also in 1951, he won All-American honors as well as the Maxwell Award.

Kazmaier had a career in the NFL waiting on him but he declined to play.

Kazmaier was drafted by the Chicago Bears in 1952, 15th round, 176th pick, but he decided to pursue a master’s degree in Business administration at Harvard.

Kazmaier graduated from Maumee High School near Toledo, Ohio, in 1948. He played football (four years), basketball (four years), track & field (four years), baseball (four years) and golf (one year) earning a letter each year in each sport. He was recruited by 23 colleges, most offering full scholarships.

He served as chairman of the President’s Council on Physical Fitness under President Ronald Reagan and President George H.W. Bush and was president of the National Football Foundation and Hall of Fame.
