Over the years Gallaudet has had some NCAA-I
recruits that have played football. Two
quickly come to mind –
Jim Macfadden, running back/wide receiver/
defensive back with the late fifties/early
sixties teams. He turned down an offer from
University of Washington. He became one of
the best offensive players Gallaudet has ever
Bob Woodward, who played on both sides of
the line, was a University of Oregon recruit.
He played one season with the Gallaudet team
in the early seventies before he ran into
eligibility problems. He easily was the
team’s #1 player.
There were others but they were mid-level
NCAA-I recruits. The above two were high
level NCAA-I recruits.
