Inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame: 1976

Dexter Very, who was named to the National Football Foundation College Football Hall of Fame in 1976, never missed a game in his Penn State career (1909-12). An end who also returned kickoffs, he was named a second-team All- American as a senior and was part of one of college football's earliest passing combinations. Born Nov. 27, 1889 in Fairdale, Pa., he lost just two bouts in four years as a Nittany Lion wrestler. Very, who died in 1980, went on to become a collegiate football official and business executive in the Pittsburgh area.
