Pete Lash

Joe Steffy comments about Col Earl Blaik‘s greatest thrill in Army Football.

COL Blaik said there were two: One was the 93 yard touchdown by Rip Rowan in the Army Navy Game.

The other was a touchdown run to win the game against Navy in 1955. RB Pete Lash ran for 30-40 yards to paydirt during which every Navy player had a shot at him, but he run through them all. Joe said that Lash was a walk-on. Small and played high school FB; Joe said he really did not have the attributes of a great player. BUT, he was tenacious and worked harder than anyone on the team. He succeeded in making the starting team his senior year. Went on to become a three star general.
