Tom "Red" Hearden
Tom graduated from East High School in 1923. He was the school's star fullback in 1921 and '22. He won three letters at Notre Dame University under legendary coach Knute Rockne and served as co-captain as a senior in 1926. After a short professional career with the Packers and Bears, Hearden came back to East High in the fall of 1936 and built a football dynasty. Hearden compiled a 51-3-2 record in seven seasons, including 32 straight wins, and won or shared six Conference championships. After returning from WW II, Harden took over as head coach at St. Norbert College and registered a 40-14 record from 1946-'52. He served as an assistant coach with the Packers from 1954-'55 and again in 1957. He was an assistant at the University of Wisconsin in 1956.
