Playing for Wagner College during the years Dick Kazmaier, weighing 170 pounds, starred at Princeton and was awarded college football's highest honor, somehow gave a small measure of realism to the fantasy of an 180 pound tackle in thinking that he, too, could be among the nation's best.

Dick Kazmaier changed my professional life and taught me invaluable lessons about business and life. I have been, and will continue to be, grateful for his vibrant energy--an energy that takes a new form but is with all who knew him. Thank you: my life has been much better thanks to knowing you.

I still remember him from the movie newsreels of that time. Also he developed his passing skills from throwing through a swinging tire suspended from a rope tied to a tree branch.

Mr. Kazmaier was my favorite football player while I was growing up in a small Alabama town a long way off from Princeton. Rest in peace and God bless

Dick Kazmaier, the last of his kind. I'll always remember his exploits,especially as a kid growing up in NJ. He was the embodiment of what a class athlete should be and exemplified amateur athletics at its best. RIP, you "Princeton Tiger".

I met Mr. Kazmaier by chance at Michael's restaurant in Concord one night. What a nice man. RIP. Thoughts and prayers to his family.

This man was the perfect example of what college sports is all about. He carried himself with such dignity. Wonder how many today would opt for Harvard Business School instead of the NFL. Met him once at
a convention and he was such a gentleman. Last of his kind.
