Roy E. "Red" Randall '28, quarterback of the undefeated Iron Men of 1926, was a fine leader, great punter, and a pass receiver of rare ability. A fierce competitor, Randall was the man who held the Iron Men together when the going got tough. The fine all-around athlete from Brockton (MA) High and Andover Academy served as captain of the 1927 Bruins and was named to the All-American team selected by Knute Rockne. Randall scored 50 points during the 1926 season and 91 for his career. He set a Brown record with a 74-yard punt against Lebanon Valley in 1927. Randall joined Haverford College as head coach of football, basketball, and baseball in 1933 and was promoted to director of athletics 13 years later. His 1942 football team was undefeated and untied. Randall took time out during World War II to serve with the U.S. Marine Corps as a captain. At a retirement dinner for Randall held in 1969, Judge Leo Weinrott of Common Pleas Court paid the former Bruin quarterback this compliment: "His influence on me personally was greater than anyone outside my immediate family. He has poured his person and his personality into the lives of so many of us for so many years."
