Chuck Taylor achieved All-American status as a guard when Stanford coach Clark Shaughnessy introduced the famed T-formation to the nation’s schools. The 1940 team went undefeated, and after military service and a 49er assistant post, Taylor continued his Stanford career for over three decades, from assistant to head coach and then to athletic director. He is a member of the College Football Hall of Fame.

Inducted into the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame in 1997.
