Bill Kay      Iowa Wikipedia 

Bill Kay attended Walnut High School in Walnut, Iowa. He initially came to Iowa to play basketball, but made his mark as a football player, earning 3rd Team All-American honors and being named team MVP as a sophomore. As an offensive tackle, he helped clear the way for Bob Smith, Iowa's first 500-yard rusher since Ozzie Simmons in 1936.

In 1948, he was selected second-team All-American and first team All-Big Nine by the Associated Press. He led the Big Ten in minutes played, averaging more than 55 minutes a game and twice playing all sixty minutes. In his final game, he blocked a punt and recovered it in the end zone for an Iowa touchdown in a win over Boston University.

He was drafted in the 4th round of the 1949 NFL Draft by the New York Giants, but didn't make the team.

Born 4/4/1925 and died on 5/23/2007 at the age of 82.

All Conference: 1st Team (1948), 3rd Team (1946) All American: 2nd Team (1948) Drafted Round 4 by New York Giants in 1949
