Herbert Alfred Stein

Inducted 1967

Date of Birth



Warren, OH


University of Pittsburgh (1918-1921)


When the great Bob Peck graduated, Pittsburgh was fortunate to find Herb Stein, a converted fullback to anchor the Panther line. He had come to Pitt from Warren, Ohio, and Stein quickly adjusted to the change in position. He established himself as one of the school's greatest two-way middlemen, playing the game with great enthusiasm and prompted one observer to note: "His play was a combination of the blast furnace, the open hearth and the Bessemer converter." Indeed, there was a flair to Stein's style, a ferocity which caught the eye of the 1920 and 1921 All-America selectors. Throughout a four-year varsity career, he led the Panthers to a 21-6-4 record with the 1920 team posting an unbeaten record. Following graduation, Stein became a successful businessman as owner of nine corporations in Cleveland, Ohio. His holdings included ventures into real estate, motels, restaurants, banking and finance.
