Dick Hoerner      Iowa Wikipedia 

Dick Hoerner attended Dubuque High School and lived in Dubuque, Iowa. He was a state track champion, helping lead his team to the conference championships in 1939 and 1940, and was twice selected as an All-Iowa player.

He enrolled at the University of Iowa in 1941 and played for the Iowa Hawkeyes football team as a sophomore in 1942. He ran a kickoff back 88 yards for a touchdown against #9 Michigan in 1942.

In May 1943, he was inducted into the U.S. Army and missed three years due to war-time service. He returned to the Iowa football team in 1946.

He was selected in the 1945 NFL draft in the 17th round by the Cleveland Rams, but didn't play for the Rams until after the 1946 season. In 1948, he was the Ram's leading rusher with 354 yards and average of 4.7 yards per carry that ranked 4th in the NFL. He helped lead the Los Angeles Rams to multiple title game appearances (including the 1951 championship). After five seasons with the Rams, he was the team's all-time career leader with 2,020 rushing yards and ranked second in team history in touchdowns scored in a single season.

Born 7/25/1922 and died on 12/11/2010 at the age of 88.
