Alvin Nugent "Bo" McMillin was a star at North Side High School in Fort Worth and an All-American at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky. McMillin was a standout player on the Praying Colonels of Centre, one of the best collegiate football teams in the nation. In 1921 the Colonels beat Harvard 6-0 on McMillin's 32 yard touchdown run - one the biggest upsets in college football history. McMillin later entered the coaching field where he also excelled. He turned in outstanding records at Centenary (1922-1924), Geneva (1925-1927) Kansas State (1928-1933), and Indiana (1934-1947). In 1945 he led Indiana to its first Big 10 championship and then moved on to coach the Detroit Lions from 1948-1950. McMillin was inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame in 1954.
