  • Johnny Bright incident

    Probably old news to many, but I just learned about this tonight while looking through ESPN's list of 100 most iconic football moments. In 1951, Drake's quarterback Johnny Bright was mauled after being knocked unconscious twice already in the first quarter. The Des Moines newspaper captured the incident on film, winning a Pulitzer Prize for the work. If you look at the pictures in the link, you will see that Bright was also a track athlete for Drake. At the bottom of the pictures page, you can see the sequence captured by the Des Moines paper. It is sad and depressing to see how some will treat their fellow man.
