Chicago Historical Society

1990: Bronko Nagurski, a member of both the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the College Football Hall of Fame, dies at the age of 81 in International Falls, Minnesota. Playing both fullback and defensive tackle, Nagurski led the University of Minnesota to a 18-4-2 record and the 1927 Big Ten Championship during his time there. He then played for the Chicago Bears from 1930 to 1937, helping the team win several division titles and two NFL championships. With professional teams short of players during World War II, he returned for one final season with the Bears in 1943, scoring a touchdown in Chicago's championship victory against Washington.
