Football legends spotted in the Have

Legendary NFL quarterback John Elway and Heisman Trophy finalist Colt McCoy, among other football stars, were in town this weekend for the 43rd annual Walter Camp awards.

Elway won the Man of the Year award, while McCoy, who quarterbacked the University of Texas to a loss in the national championship bowl game Jan. 7, snagged the Player of the Year Award — but his activities in New Haven weren’t limited to awards dinners. According to one student, McCoy was spotted at Hula Hank’s Friday night and made an appearance at Toad’s Saturday night.

The awards are named after Walter Camp 1880, a Yale football player who earned the nickname “father of American football” after helping develop the system of downs and the points system used in today’s football.
