Dobre Shunka "good ham"!
Jack Ham attended Bishop McCort HS in Johnstown, Pa. He was in track & field and in FB played OT transitioning into LB.
He was ignored by recruits due to his size, 185 lbs.
Ham attended Penn State as LB. Stats: 251 tackles with 143 solo, 4 blocked punts. Was inducted into College Football HOF 1990.
"I didn't like the idea of playing for a losing team."-1971 Ham was drafted 2nd round, 34th overall by the Steelers whose record was 5-9. He had only 1 losing season which was his 1st season, 6-8.
"A linebacker shouldn't just be a guy who gets in the hole in a hurry and hits somebody. To me that's being half a linebacker. You should also do your job on pass coverage."
He retired in 1982 as one of the greatest OLBs.
