        Born: July 6, 1935
        Died: January 9, 2003, Hingham, MA, age 67,---d. heart attack at home, Myocardial infarction

        wikipedia
        William "Will" McDonough (July 6, 1935–January 9, 2003) was an American sportswriter for the Boston Globe.

        McDonough attended the English High School of Boston, where he starred in baseball as a pitcher and in football as a quarterback. After graduating from Northeastern University he started at the Boston Globe as a copy boy in 1955, becoming a sportswriter in 1960.

        McDonough became a hero among Boston sportswriters after a 1979 altercation with Patriots cornerback Raymond Clayborn, in which McDonough leveled Clayborn after Clayborn had poked him in the eye.

        McDonough's TV experience included a stint as part of NBC's NFL Live pregame show from 1991-1993.

        McDonough regularly referred to Roger Clemens as the "Texas Con Man" during Clemens' tenure with the Boston Red Sox.

        He died of a heart attack at his home in Hingham, Massachusetts at age 67.

        McDonough retired from the newspaper in 2001 but continued to write a weekly column for the Globe.

        One of his sons, Sean McDonough is a sportscaster for ESPN. His other son, Terry McDonough, is Director of Player Personnel for the Jacksonville Jaguars in the National Football League.

          wikipedia
          Charles "Cy" Sherman is known as the "father of the Cornhuskers" after giving the Nebraska Cornhuskers Football team the name Cornhuskers in 1899. During the 1890 through 1899 seasons, the Huskers had been called multiple names including Treeplanters, Rattlesnake Boys, Antelopes, Old Gold Knights and Bugeaters. The school was changing its school colors to scarlet and cream in 1892 and the Old Gold Knights no longer made sense. By 1892, the team's most commonly used nickname was the Bugeaters, named after the insect-devouring bull bats.

          Charles "Cy" Sherman was writing for the Nebraska State Journal in 1899 and was the first to use the name Cornhuskers to refer to Nebraska, which would become the only used name for the team in 1900. The reason for the change was that Sherman thought the name Bugeaters was unglamorous and was tired of referring to the Nebraska teams with that name. Sherman then became the sports editor of The Lincoln Star, later on and was made an honorary member of the Nebraska letterman's club for his contribution. He would help originate the Associated Press Poll for ranking football teams several years later

          Charles Summer Sherman, newspaperman, has lived in this state for the past 50 years, and has been prominent in the newspaper life of his community. He was born at Villisca, Iowa, March 10, 1871, the son of Charles Wheelan and Orilla (Groom) Sherman. His father, a newspaper publisher and editor, was born in Richland County, Ohio, June 6, 1841, and died at Los Angeles, in January 1921. He served as a member of the Third Iowa Cavalry for over three years during the Civil War. His ancestors emigrated from England in the 17th century, and his paternal great-grandfather was a soldier in the New Jersey troops during the Revolution.

          Orilla Sherman, mother of Charles S. Sherman, was born in Marion County, Iowa, August 26, 1842, and died at Plattsmouth, Nebraska, May 31, 1900. Her family, of Scotch, Irish, and English extraction, in America for many generations.

          Mr. Sherman first attended the public schools of Glenwood, Iowa, and in 1887 was graduated from the Plattsmouth High School. He has always been in the newspaper business and for 16 years has been sports editor of the Lincoln Star. Mr. Sherman first named the Nebraska University's athletic teams the Cornhuskers, a title by which they are known throughout the inter-collegiate sports world today. He is a member of the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce, the Lincoln University Club and the Nebraskana Society. His favorite sport is billiards, and his hobby is landscape gardening and beautifying his home.

          His marriage to Nancy Ada Moore was solemnized at Davenport, Scott County, Iowa, August 16, 1893. Mrs. Sherman was born at Davenport, October 31, 1870; her ancestry is Scotch-Irish.

          Mr. Sherman is a member of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, Lodge Number 80, of Lincoln. He is a Democrat. Residence: Lincoln

            Caspar William Whitney (September 2, 1864 – January, 18 1929) was an American author, editor, explorer, and war correspondent. He originated the concept of the All-American team in college football in 1889 when he worked for Harper's Magazine.

            From 1900, he was an owner and editor-in-chief of the monthly Outing magazine, which promoted the outdoors and sporting pursuits, as well as a good deal of adventure fiction; authors included Jack London and Clarence E. Mulford. He was a founding member of The Explorers Club (1904) after expeditions in North and South America. He declared bankruptcy in 1910.

            As a sports journalist he was an advocate of athletic amateurism and was a member of the International Olympic Committee (1900–1905) and the American Olympic Committee (President 1906–1910). He wrote on a wide range of subjects including big-game hunting, inter collegiate sporting contests (especially football and baseball), amateur versus professional contests, and the Olympic games. In the early 1900s, he edited "The American Sportsman's Library," a quality series of 16 volumes.

            Whitney testified in a lawsuit against him that he earned a salary of $8,000 (nearly $200,000 inflation adjusted to 2008) for editing Outing and $1,500 (about $35,000 inflation adjusted) for editing the American Sportsman's Library.

            Whitney married three times: Anna Childs in 1889, Cora Adele Chase in 1897 and Florence Canfield in 1909. The latter was the daughter of the colorful miner and industrialist Charles Canfield (the subject of a Whitney biography). She participated in founding the League of Women Voters and remained active politically until her death in a motor vehicle accident in 1941.
