Here's another local article on the topic.

The notable comment....

Quote:
There are (310) members of the hall of fame, and that number will continue to grow. I dare say there are a very limited number of professional
football players with schools named after them.”


So true....and for those out-of-towners will also get information why they wanted to change the name in the first place.

Family comes first. That's how Joe Kapp was raised, and those are the strongest memories that still remain for the former quarterback, even as the details of some of his impressive personal accomplishments on the football field fade from recollection.

Kapp is the only quarterback to have the distinction of playing in the Rose Bowl, Grey Cup and Super Bowl.Yet the sport he dearly loved appears to have extracted a high price. Kapp, 79, now copes with the effects of Alzheimer's disease.

You also helped change the NFL and player contracts when you sued the league in 1971. What do you think of player compensation now?

Kapp: I read they're going to pay a player $50 million? I got four tacos and an enchilada.
