Pat Peddrick

Among the best athletes in the early history of CFS, Pat was a track & field star and captain of the football team. He scored 250 points during his four years on the track team. In a three-meet span during the 1936 season, he competed in 15 events; he won 14 and finished in second place in the other. Pat held four track & field records when he graduated from CFS, and his 220-yard time of :23.2 was not matched until 1957. His long-time record in the discus (college size) was a toss of 136' 8". Pat's record in the 440 was a time of :53.4. His 12 lb. shot put record of 48’4” is the longest-standing CFS athletic record, and has yet to be eclipsed more than 85 years later.
