Heisman Trophy Winners AUTOGRAPHED Signed By 10 Football Les Horvath Estate LOA

Les Horvath (D. 1995), the son of immigrant parents from Hungary, grew up in Cleveland. He lettered in football at Ohio State in 1940, 1941, 1942 and 1944. Horvath was right halfback on the 1942 national championship team. In 1943 he was in dental school and not eligible for football. In 1944 the rules were changed, and Horvath joined the Ohio State team as a tailback in the single wing and quarterback in the T formation. Ohio State went 9-0, won the Big Ten and ranked No. 2 nationally. Horvath rushed for 905 yards and passed for 345. He ranked second in the nation in rushing, third in total offense, was unanimous All-America, Most Valuable Player in the Big Ten, and won the Heisman Trophy. He graduated from dental school in 1945, joined the Navy as an ensign, and was discharged in July, 1947. Horvath played three years of pro football, 1947-49 (Rams and Browns), then practiced dentistry in Los Angeles after his football career ended. He is also a member of the College Football Hall of Fame.
