1905 Notre Dame

Henry J. (Fuzzy) McGlew of Chelsea, Massachusetts was a former quarterback and head coach of the Notre Dame college football program.

In his two years as a starting quarterback from 1901-02, the team achieved a combined record of 14-3-2. His best game came against the American College of Medicine and Surgery in 1902, when he made runs of 80, 65 and 40 yards and scored one touchdown. In 1903, he moved to left end, and helped the team to achieve their first undefeated season. McGlew never once fumbled the ball during his playing career.

McGlew was a teammate of hall-of-famer Red Salmon, and would succeed him as head coach of the Irish in 1905. His lone season as coach would include a record-setting 142-0 victory over American Medical, but the team would finish a disappointing 5-4, and McGlew would quickly retire from the coaching ranks.
