Communications director and Jaynotes editor Pierre DeGruy ’69 takes a photo of Blue Jay alumni who were star players and co-captains on Jesuit’s state championship football teams. From left are Al Widmer ’43, Don Ford ’47, Will Billon ’54, and Larry Ecuyer ’61. Widmer, a halfback on offense who also played as a defensive back, was on Jesuit’s 1940 and 1941 state championship teams. Ford was the Blue Jays’ right guard on the 1946 state championship team. Billon and Ecuyer were centers and linebackers on Jesuit’s 1953 and 1960 championship teams, respectively. On the table in front of the quartet are the trophies that represent Jesuit’s eight football state championships: 1933, 1940, 1941, 1943, 1946, 1953, 1960, and 2014, the most recent prize won by the Blue Jays last December.¬† The photo will be featured as part of a¬†retrospective article in the upcoming issue of Jaynotes, the magazine of Jesuit High School.
