This week in old Georgetown in Color, GM visits a Georgetown University football player named Otto Sauer. Sauer, a tackle originally from Bridgeport, CT, played for the Hoyas from 1923 to 1927. In 1940 he was given an honorable mention in connection with the alumni association’s selection of the all time best Hoya football players from the previous 60 years.
After graduating from Georgetown in 1927, Sauer enrolled in GU’s law school. He eventually returned to Connecticut to serve for many years as the state attorney for Fairfield County. In 1969, he was again honored by GU alums, this time as “Lawyer of the Year”.
