Edwin C. Walter

They called him Funny, but he rarely gave opponents anything to laugh about. After starring at St. Vincent High School in Akron, Walter became an all-conference performer in basketball and football at Case Tech (now Case Western Reserve). As a 2-way performer at end in football, he earned All-Big Four and All-Ohio Conference honors in 1935 and ’36. He was the team captain as a senior in ’36. In basketball, Walter averaged 16 points for his career, again earning All-Big Four and All-Ohio Conference honors as a junior and senior. In a memorable 38-34 victory over Michigan State, Walter sank 18-of-19 free-throw attempts
