  • Notes 
    • Marquis Franklin "Big Bill Horr" Horr was born in Munnsville on May 2, 1880. He attended District School #6 in Stockbridge before enrolling in Colgate Academy, a prep school. Horr played the tackle position on the football team at the academy, which practiced against the Colgate University team. In the fall of 1905 Bill enrolled at Syracuse University and played on the football team as well as track and field. He earned letters all four years on both teams and was the football team captain his final year. Horr was the school's first football All-American his senior year. While very talented on the field Horr also excelled in the classroom. He was attending Syracuse Law School when he was awarded the Syracuse University Golf Club trophy cup in 1909 as the athlete who achieved the highest average during the previous school year. Horr's talent on the football field was great but his track and field abilities may have been even better. He competed in a number of events including the shot put, discus, hammer throw and tug of war. Horr was the US National Champion in the discus throw in 1908, beating out the legendary Jim Thorpe amongst other participants. He was also a champion hammer thrower in 1906 and 1907. Horr's track talents earned him a spot on the 1908 US Olympic team that competed in London, England. He competed in five events while in London: the discus throw, Greek (Ancient) style discuss throw, hammer throw, shot put and tug of war. He earned a Silver medal in the Greek (Ancient) style discus throw and a bronze for the discus throw. He would follow up his Olympic success in 1909 by becoming the National Champion in the shot put, hammer throw and discus. In 1910 Horr took the head football coach position at Northwestern University where he coached for a year before moving on to Purdue University for three years. Horr did not have a great deal of success being a head coach and in 1914 he returned to Syracuse University where he coached the line until 1923. He would go on to become an attorney at the American Liability Insurance Company in 1946 when he would retire. He died nine years later in 1955 while living in Central Square. Horr's legacy still touches Syracuse University today. The football team's most valuable player each year receives the Bill Horr Most Valuable Player Award. He was also inducted into the Greater Syracuse Area Sports Hall of Fame in 1992.
