Clifford "Gip" Battles

This Kenmore High School graduate, who passed away last April, established a collegiate record at West Virginia Wesleyan by winning 15 varsity letters, which matched the number of touchdowns he scored in 1931. In 1968 he became the first small college player to be inducted into the National Professional Football Hall of Fame after starring for the Washington Redskins, including the 1937 championship team, of the National Football League throughout his professional playing career.
