Description

“I will never have another Grange, but neither will anyone else.” -Robert Zuppke, University of Illinois Head Football Coach 1913-1941

Learn about the life and times of famous Illini Football legend Harold “Red” Grange (aka “The Galloping Ghost”). Presenter Charles Finn will give a summary of who Grange was as a person and athlete, covering the early college years, his rise to All-American level, and his NFL career. Enjoy footage from the Champaign Park District’s 2013 performance of “The Galloping Ghost: Red Grange Visits the Virginia”, a 30-minute play written by Finn, based on a series of conversations with manager C.C. Pyle, Coach Bob Zuppke, Owner-Coach of the Bears George Halas, and finally a conversation with Red himself.

The 70-minute presentation will be followed by a discussion/Q&A.

$15/person (Includes presentation and light refreshments.)
