Ellery Huntington was a tenacious quarterback with an uncanny ability to befuddle enemy defenses. He became Colgate's first consensus All-America when he made Walter Camp's national listing in 1913. The honor highlighted a career that established Huntington as a player with rare instinct for the game and courage on the field. He returned a kickoff 85 yards against Syracuse. Huntington was a Phi Beta Kappa, class president, and went on to a law degree at Harvard. He served in both World War I and II; in the latter war he was head of the U.S. military mission to Yugoslavia's Marshal Tito. He was head coach at Colgate 1920-21 and in 1940 wrote a book, "50 years of Colgate Football."
