dedication to a departed semi pro football player

Irwin Carlstedt

part of newspaper obit

Irvin attended the Illinois High School in Jacksonville, Ill., where he
also played sports. Though he played track and basketball, he excelled in
football as a defensive tackle. He received the School Award from the
American Legion for courage, leadership, honor, service and scholarship.

Later, he would play in a semi-professional football team in Jamesville,
Wis. He played about two years there and was told “if he could hear, he
would play professional football.” He admired and patterned his life
around Jim Thorpe, an Indian and a famous professional football player at the
time.

He was inducted in 2004 in the school hall of fame.

note:

his school did not have good football teams during his high
school career – but was widely praised for his stellar
play on the field.
