Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alexander Francis Wojciechowicz (August 12, 1915 - July 13, 1992) was a professional American football player in the National Football League. He was an NFL Hall of Famer as a offensive lineman and linebacker for the Detroit Lions and Philadelphia Eagles. He played college football at Fordham University, the center on the famed Seven Blocks of Granite offensive line, which included an undersized right guard named Vince Lombardi. He was named All-American in 1936 and 1937 and was inducted to the College Football Hall of Fame in 1955. Wojciechowicz was the Detroit Lions' first pick in the 1938 NFL Draft and won the starting center job in his first game as a Lion. Even though the Lions were in decline as a team, Alex would play with full effort on both offense and defense. In 1944, he demonstrated his defensive talents when he intercepted seven passes, a Lions record for several years. Although Wojciechowicz received his fair share of personal recognition, he yearned to play on a championship team. That never happened in Detroit.show more
