Former BC Lions DL Ed Enos who stayed in Canada passed away a while back from this story. I missed it.
He stands out for me for one saying I recall he made and I always kept it in mind as small guy playing football and soccer as my two main sports:
"You can't measure the size of a man's heart."
Former Husky Great Dr. Ed Enos Passes Away
NOTE: Dr. Ed Enos, a member of UConn’s All-Century Football team, passed away on Tuesday at the age of 72. The following article was published in the Montreal Gazette.
Dr. Ed Enos, who made major contributions to athletics at Concordia University and one of its founding institutions, Loyola College, as director of the department of athletics for more than 20 years, died early Tuesday of heart failure after abdominal surgery. He was 72.
He also was a founding chairperson of Concordia's acclaimed department of exercise science.
Enos was a graduate of the University of Connecticut, where he played football as an offensive and defensive lineman. He was named to the university's 100th anniversary all-time football team in 1998.
Upon leaving UConn, Enos played pro football in the Canadian Football League with the B.C. Lions in 1957 and 1958. Enos joined the coaching ranks at the college level in the U.S. and served as defensive coach with the Alouettes in 1963-1964.
Enos was appointed director of physical education and athletics at Loyola College in 1965 and immediately launched a progressive and wide-ranging program. When Loyola and Sir George Williams University merged in 1975, he became Concordia's first athletic director.
During his 22 years as athletic director, Loyola and Concordia varsity teams won 80 league and six national championships and he initiated a comprehensive intramural program, as well as the Loyola Sports Hall of Fame.
Enos's accomplishments went beyond athletics as an innovator and academic. He was an associate professor of the department of exercise science, assistant dean of the faculty of arts and science and a member of Concordia's first senate.
He also founded the university's Institute of Comparative Physical Education, and at the international level, served as founding director of the First China-Canada Sports Research Exchange Program and the First China-Canada Sports Facilities Exchange study program.
Enos's greatest honour was bestowed on him in 1987, when he was received by Pope John Paul II at the Vatican in recognition of his efforts to use sport as a means of "promoting international understanding, the brotherhood of man and peace."
Visitation will be at Collins Clarke MacGillivray White, 222 Rte. 20, Pointe Claire, on March 15, from 7-9 p.m., and March 16, 2-5 p.m., and 7-9 p.m. Funeral service will be at 11 a.m. March 17 at St. Edmund of Canterbury, 105 Beaconsfield Blvd.
Enos is survived by his wife, Janice (McCluskey), their three children, Ed III, Michael and Laurie, and grandchildren.
