A True Gentleman becomes a KDR Gentleman at 97th National Convention

8/11/2008

Here’s a great sports trivial pursuit questions that you can ask your friends, family and colleagues: Who holds the NCAA record for QB with the most consecutive wins in NCAA history (35-0)? 
 
The answer is our newest Brother Chuck Ealey!
 
In coordination with the 97th National convention and the 25th Anniversary celebration of the Pi Alpha chapter the Brothers of the Pi Alpha chapter initiated Chuck Ealey into our Brotherhood.  Chuck is a 1971 graduate of the University of Toledo.  Chuck, and his wife Sherry, currently reside in Toronto where Chuck is a Regional Director for a Financial Services firm and is deeply involved in the business and charitable communities there. 
 
Here are some of the other great accomplishments Chuck achieved at the University of Toledo:
1.      Holds the amateur football record for QB with the most consecutive wins (18-0) in high school and (35-0) in college for a combined record of (53-0).
2.      Was MVP of the Mid-American Conference for three consecutive years and won three consecutive Division IA bowl games.
3.      Finished 8th in the Heisman Trophy voting in 1972.
4.      Was selected First Team All-American by the Football News, yet went undrafted by the NFL.
 
Despite going undrafted in the 1972 NFL draft Chuck demonstrated his undefeated spirit and left the US for Canada so that he could live the American dream of playing professional football as a quarterback. In 1972 Chuck was named CFL Rookie of the Year and led the Hamilton Tiger Cats to The Grey Cup Championship where he was selected as the Grey Cup MVP.   
 

Chuck exemplifies the type of man Kappa Delta Rho has attracted across the ages.  Chuck has lived his life with honor and integrity and continues to showcase his role model characteristics as a successful business man, philanthropist, father, grand-father and devoted husband.  Please join us in welcoming Brother Chuck Ealey to Kappa Delta Rho.
