Bill Mohn

William Kirk Mohn (April 22, 1899 – 1952) was an American football player for the University of Notre Dame. He was born in South Bend, Indiana.

In Knute Rockne's first year as the head football coach at Notre Dame in 1918, Mohn was the quarterback for a very thin squad that had been decimated due to the military enrollment for World War I. The team went 3-1-2 in a shortened season that was declared "unofficial" by the university. Among Mohn's career highlights were scoring the lone touchdown for the Irish in a 7-7 tie against Great Lakes Navy and a 73-yard punt return for a touchdown in a 26-6 win at Purdue.

Although Notre Dame is highly ranked academically, it has also been called a "jock school" as it has produced a large number of athletes. Intercollegiate sports teams at Notre Dame are called the "Fighting Irish". Notre Dame offers 13 varsity sports for both men and women: Men's American Football, Men's Baseball, Men's and Women's Basketball, Men's and Women's Cross Country, Men's and Women's Fencing, Men's and Women's Golf, Men's Ice Hockey, Men's and Women's Lacrosse, Women's Rowing, Men's and Women's Soccer, Women's Softball, Men's and Women's Swimming and Diving, Men's and Women's Tennis, Men's and Women's Track and Field, and Women's Volleyball. Approximately 400 students have gone on to play professional American football in the National Football League, the American Football League, or the All-America Football Conference, with many others going to play other sports professionally. Some athletes have also participated in the Olympic Games.
