Carl Lowry Brumbaugh (September 22, 1906 – October 24, 1969) was an American college and professional football player who was a quarterback and halfback in the National Football League (NFL) for nine seasons in the 1930s. Brumbaugh played college football for Ohio State University and the University of Florida, and thereafter, he played professionally for the Chicago Bears, Cleveland Rams and Brooklyn Dodgers of the NFL.

Early years

Brumbaugh was born in West Milton, Ohio in 1906,[1] and attended West Milton High School.[2]

College career

After graduating from high school, he attended Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio and then the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida, where he played for the Ohio State Buckeyes football team and the Florida Gators football team, respectively.[2][3] He played for the Gators in 1927 and 1928,[4] and Brumbaugh, Rainey Cawthon, Clyde Crabtree and Royce Goodbread were members of the 1928 Gators' "Phantom Four" backfield that helped the team lead the country with 336 points scored.[5][3] The Gators finished the 1928 season 8–1, losing only to the Tennessee Volunteers by a single point, 13–12.[3] Brumbaugh was later inducted into the University of Florida Athletic Hall of Fame as a "Gator Great."[6]

Professional career

During his nine-year NFL career, he played for the Chicago Bears from 1930 to 1936, the Cleveland Rams in 1937, the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1937, and finished with the Bears in 1937 and 1938.[7] Brumbaugh was a member of the legendary early 1930s Bears teams that included future hall of famers Red Grange and Bronco Nagurski, won the NFL Championships in 1932 and 1933, and played for a third in 1934.

Brumbaugh died in his hometown of West Milton, Ohio on October 24, 1969; he was 63 years old.
