Member BiographyLarry Pugh was a four-year starter, a three-year
all-conference player, and two-year NAIA All-America
for Westminster College located at New Wilmington, PA.
The NAIA named Pugh All-America at offensive guard in
1962, at defensive tackle in 1964. (He was second
team All-America at offensive guard in 1963.)
In his years, 1961-64, Westminster won four
championships in the West Penn Conference.
The Saturday Evening Post named Pugh one of the top
three linemen in the East. He was Westminster
captain in 1964. In that year Westminster had an
8-0 record and held opponents to 129 yards a game
on defense. This gave Westminster the third best
ranking on defense among all small college teams.
He signed a pro contract with the Cleveland Browns
but was injured in the exhibition season and never
played in a league game. He became a teacher in
the school system at his home town, New Castle, PA.
