Tom Harmon, football player for the Univ. of Michigan, 1940 Heisman Trophy winner, war hero and father of actor Mark Harmon. In his final football game (against Ohio State), Harmon led Michigan to a 40-0 victory, scoring 5 touchdowns. In an unprecedented display of sportsmanship and appreciation, the Ohio State fans in Columbus gave Harmon a standing ovation at game's end. No Michigan player had been so honored, before or since.
