Jack Cannon

1908 - 1967

Often called “the perfect guard” and known also for his speed and vicious charge on defense, Jack Cannon earned All American football honors at Notre Dame in 1929.

In the famed 1929 Notre Dame – Army game in Yankee Stadium, Cannon’s outstanding play on a frozen field led the Fighting Irish to a 7-0 victory before 85,000 spectators. The defeated Army players congratulated him after the game for his phenomenal performance applauded his abilities.

He later owned the Jack Cannon Flower Cart, one of the largest florist establishments in Columbus at the time.
