Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Brian John Dowling (born April 1, 1947) was the starting quarterback of the Yale University football team in the late 1960s. He set, and held for decades, a number of Yale passing records. Dowling finished 9th in vote for the 1968 Heisman Trophy, and was awarded the Nils V. "Swede" Nelson Award for sportsmanship in 1967. The 1968 team was undefeated and favored going into The Game against Harvard University. Harvard was undefeated and untied, too. Harvard, trailing 29-13 with less than a minute remaining, rallied to tie the game, which ended with a score of 29-29. The contest's result inspired the Harvard Crimson to print the headline "Harvard Beats Yale, 29-29." Dowling at that point had lost only one game he started since the sixth grade. He played football in high school for St. Ignatius High School, located in Cleveland, OH. In the City Championship that he started, St. Ignatius lost to Benedictine High School.show more
