Byron Haines passes away

Posted by Bob Condotta

In case you missed it in the paid obituaries section of our paper today, former Husky great Byron Haines passed away last week.

Haines, who was 93, was the winner of the 1936 Guy Flaherty award, given annually to UW's Most Inspirational Player as voted by teammates. He led the Huskies to the 1937 Rose Bowl (a 21-0 loss to Pitt).

He was a running back and safety for UW from 1933-37 and his obit included the note that he hitchiked to Seattle from his home in Bend, Ore., to UW with $5 in his pocket when he came to play for the Huskies.

Among Haines' legacy was technically scoring all the points in UW's 6-2 win over USC in 1935. Haines scored a TD for UW and as the link says "being pushed over the goal line'' to give USC a safety and its two points.

He played professionally for Pittsburgh and later served in the Navy in World War II and had a long career in the lumber industry.
