In West Point's proud history, there has only been one cadet to serve as class president, captain of the football team, 'Star Man' (top 5% of class) and Brigade Commander...Pete Dawkins held these titles while managing to win the Heisman and Maxwell awards as well as a Rhodes Scholarship.
In Part One of a two-part interview, General Dawkins talks about his childhood, winning the Heisman and joining the Heisman fraternity and how he juggled his responsibilities at West Point.
Part II of the DiploSport Podcast interview with Brig Gen Pete Dawkins, the 1958 winner of the Heisman Trophy, a Rhodes Scholar and a 1959 grad of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.
