Jack Hubbard


John Houghton Hubbard

Inducted 1966

Date of Birth



Hatfield, MA


Amherst College (1903-1906)


Big, fast and durable, Jack Hubbard was one of football's authentic Iron Men. A product of Hatfield, Massachusetts, "Old Hatfield" distinguished himself in 1905, by becoming a consensus All-America. Hubbard began his career as a halfback at Amherst in 1903, but was noted for his ability in adjusting to virtually any position. At 180 pounds, he was classified as a "big back" for those days, and he carried both speed and strength. A dash and hurdles man, Hubbard employed his track talents as advantages when smashing through a line, skirting end or gliding off tackle. An excellent kicker, he never missed a point-after-touchdown in three straight seasons. Hubbard was highly acclaimed for his ball-carrying abilities but, like so many players, saw himself as a better defensive player. He believed his defense earned him Walter Camp's All-America enrollment. In 1904, he was a second- team selection. Following graduation, Hubbard spent 46 years in the fishing food manufacturing and hardware businesses in Massachusetts and Connecticut.
