Description

Robert A. Higgins (November 24, 1894 in Corning, New York - June 6, 1969 in State College, Pennsylvania) was a professional American football player and coach. Higgins played at Penn State from 1914 to 1916, and was named an All-American in 1915. After spending World War I in the service, he returned to captain Penn State, earning All-America honors again in 1919. In a 20-0 victory over Pittsburgh that season, Higgins caught a pass from Walter Hess and turned it into a thrilling 92-yard touchdown and was immortalized in Knute Rockne's "Great Football Plays." In 1920 and 1921, Higgins played end for the Canton Bulldogs of the American Professional Football Association, the precursor to the National Football League.show more
