Doc Blanchard, Football
“Mr. Inside” attended the United States Military Academy at West Point and starred on the football team, winning three straight national titles from 1944-1946 and making the All-American team in each of those years. Aside from maybe his counterpart, Glenn “Mr. Outside” Davis, Blanchard was an unmatched athlete during his time at West Point—he played linebacker, fullback, kicker, and punter for the team, and even competed for the Academy’s track and field team. Although Blanchard never played professional ball—he was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the NFL—he was the first college junior to win the Heisman Trophy, and was unquestionably one of America’s greatest sports stars at a time when college football dominated America’s sporting attention.
