About the Presenter
Larry Pugh is a former American football player. He played offensive guard and defensive tackle for Westminster College. He was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame in 1998. Mr. Pugh was drafted by the Cleveland Browns, where he eventually suffered a career-ending knee injury. He spent the rest of his career as a highly-regarded educator and coach in the New Castle Area school system. He resides in New Castle.
Mr. Pugh graduated from Westminster College with a degree in history and a minor in science in 1965. He received a Master’s degree from Howard University in European history in 1967. He attended Howard University because he wanted the Black Experience as there were only two Black students attending Westminster at the time.
The talk is free and open to the public.
