Nick Kirwan, Stanford's BIG GAME QB
Nicholas Pierce Kirwan, aka "Nick" Kirwan attended Stanford University in Palo Alto, California and played 3 years Varsity for Coach "Pop" Warner as one of his Quarterbacks. He played for Stanford for their very first Rose Bowl appearance against Notre Dame, and was second string to the great Ernie Nevers. Ernie almost won that game for Stanford with two broken ankles, and my grandfather sat rapt and ready on the bench, but Ernie played a very fine game despite the loss.
