Ernie Case

Ernest Francis "Ernie" Case (1920-1995) was an American athlete who played quarterback for the University of California, Los Angeles and professionally in the All-America Football Conference for the Baltimore Colts. A bomber pilot who was shot down and captured as a prisoner-of-war during World War II, Case is best remembered for leading UCLA to its first 10-0 season and a berth in the 1947 Rose Bowl game.

Although the first quarterback selected in the 1947 NFL draft, Case signed instead with the upstart All-America Football Conference, playing just one uneventful season in a reserve role before retiring.

Biography

College career, part 1

Ernie Case enrolled at Los Angeles City College, where he played halfback on the school's football team.[1] He transferred to University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in 1940. He started the season as the Bruins' second string left halfback.[2] During this year coming off the bench, Case distinguished himself both for his quickness and for his passing acumen, tossing two long touchdown passes in one noteworthy scrimmage against the team's starters playing the role of Stanford University quarterback Frankie Albert.[3]

As spring practice for the 1941 season approached, the sophomore Case appeared to be in line to take on the role of starting quarterback for the UCLA squad coached by Edwin C. "Babe" Horrell.[4] This was formalized at the team's first practice of the fall in September, when Case was named UCLA's starting quarterback by Coach Horrell.[5]

Competing with Case for the UCLA starting QB job was Bob Waterfield, a future superstar[6] of the National Football League.[7] By the time of the season opener against Washington State University, Waterfield had won the starting quarterback position, with the left-handed Case relegated to a backup role.[8]

Wartime interlude

Unfortunately, life intervened and Case's college days were interrupted by American entry into World War II. Motivated by the December 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, on January 10, 1942, Case informed Coach Horrell that he was leaving school to enlist in the Army Air Corps in support of the nation's war effort.[9]

Case trained as a pilot and flew as captain of a bomber on the European front, flying 12 missions without mishap.[10] Case's 13th mission, flown in February 1943, proved unlucky, however, and he was shot down by Italian forces over Sardinia.[11] Case suffered a broken hip and shattered parachuting from his crippled plane and was captured by enemy forces.[10] After a brief period of hospitalization, he was transferred from Sardinia to a prisoner-of-war camp at Chieti, located on the Italian mainland.[11]

On September 23, 1943, with POWs being moved from Italy to more secure sites in Germany, Case and a comrade took advantage of the diversion provided by an Allied bombing of his locale,[11] escaping through a hole in his stockade fence.[10] The pair made their way towards invading Allied forces, subsisting on whatever they could find to eat, including bread and water provided by friendly Italians, eventually meeting up with a patrol of the Canadian 8th Army on October 26 at the municipality of Trivento.[11] Before the war was over, Case attained the rank of 1st lieutenant and had been awarded the purple heart for wounds suffered in action.[11]

After liberation, Case was returned to the United States for rehabilitation of his wounds and was stationed at Mather Field, near Sacramento, California.[12] He received his discharge in 1945 and returned to UCLA to complete his college education.[12]

College career, part 2

Back at UCLA in 1945, Case returned to the school's football team, now coached by Bert LaBrucherie. Although slightly undersized and wiry, standing 5'10" tall and weighing just 170 pounds,[13] Case nevertheless won the starting quarterback role and was elected team captain in 1945.[14] Case saw extensive action for UCLA as its starting QB in both 1945 and 1946, his junior and senior seasons, sharing team captaincy duties in the latter year with end Burr Baldwin.[15] As an older-than-average student with a recent history as a war hero who returned to college to play football, Case was something of a novelty and received periodic nationwide attention in the press.

In addition to his quarterbacking duties, Case also served as the team's kicker. Off the field he was even more busy, married and the father of two young sons.[16] He also was an excellent student, making high grades while working towards a degree in accounting at UCLA.[13]

UCLA was recognized as one of the top football teams in the United States in 1946, with Case running the team's T-formation offense to perfection. The team was ranked #1 in the country and took an 8-0 record into a final confrontation with arch-rival USC (5-2) in late November — with a bid to the 1947 Rose Bowl in the balance.[17]

UCLA managed to beat the hated Trojans in front of nearly 94,000 rain-soaked fans, winning by a score of 13-6, with Case scoring the go-ahead touchdown with a quarterback sneak.[18] UCLA thus won the Pacific Coast Conference championship and an automatic bid to the Rose Bowl, where they were to face midwestern powerhouse the University of Illinois.[18] But before this ultimate game, the team finished up its first unbeaten regular season with a trip to Lincoln, Nebraska, where they demolished the University of Nebraska Cornhuskers, 18-0.[19]

The 10-0 Bruins entered the 1947 Rose Bowl on New Year's Day as oddsmakers' favorite. Case and UCLA briefly took an early 7-6 lead with a quarterback sneak, but the day belonged to the Illini, who racked up a Rose Bowl record 320 yards of offense, blowing out the Bruins 45-14.[20] Case did manage one noteworthy achievement in the losing effort, setting a new Rose Bowl record with 165 yards passing, connecting on 11 of his 24 attempts.[20]

Professional career

In December 1946, the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League selected Case with the 6th pick in the 1st round of the 1947 NFL Draft — the first quarterback selected.[21] Case chose instead to sign with the Baltimore Colts of the rival All-America Football Conference, however, joining former UCLA teammate Burr Baldwin, an All-American, in the upstart professional league.

Case's contract with the Colts, signed in February 1946, was for three years; financial terms were not disclosed.[22]

Case would play only one season for the Colts before retiring. He saw extremely limited action during that 1947 season, going 4-for-11 passing for just 49 total yards, with one interception.[23] He was rather more successful on the defensive side of the ball, intercepting two passes and amassing 56 yards on interception returns.[23] He also kicked one field goal and one point after touchdown for the Colts, ending his career with four points scored.[23]

Life after football

Case enrolled as a law student at the University of Southern California in the summer of 1947.[24]

Death and legacy

Ernie Case died on December 13, 1995. He was 75 years old at the time of his death.

On November 4, 2011, Case was inducted into the UCLA Athletics Hall of Fame.

The nine selectors recognized by the NCAA as "official" for the 1946 season are (1) the All-America Board (AAB), (2) the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA), published by Look magazine, (3) the Associated Press (AP), (4) Collier's Weekly, as selected by Grantland Rice, (5) the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA), (6) the International News Service (INS), (7) the Newspaper Enterprise Association (NEA), (8) the Sporting News (SN), and (9) the United Press (UP).

1947 Green Bay Packers season

1947 NFL Draft

The 1947 National Football League Draft was held on December 16, 1946, at the Commodore Hotel in New York City, New York.The National Football League in this draft made the first overall pick, a bonus pick determined by lottery. The Chicago Bears won the first lottery. This process was ended in 1958.

1947 Rose Bowl

The 1947 Rose Bowl was a college football bowl game. It was the 33rd Rose Bowl Game. The Illinois Fighting Illini defeated the UCLA Bruins, 45–14. Illinois halfbacks Buddy Young and Jules Rykovich shared the Rose Bowl Player Of The Game award. They were named the Rose Bowl Players Of The Game when the award was created in 1953 and selections were made retroactively. It was the first Rose Bowl game that featured teams from the Pacific Coast Conference and the Big Nine Conference by the terms of an exclusive five-year agreement. It is known as the first "modern" Rose Bowl, and the modern Rose Bowl records date back to this game. This exclusive agreement remained in place until the 1999 Rose Bowl when the Rose Bowl became part of the Bowl Championship Series, with the exception of the games from 1960 onward following the collapse of the PCC and prior to the renegotiation with the newly formed Athletic Association of Western Universities (AAWU), highlighted by the 1962 Rose Bowl where Big Ten champion Ohio State declined the invitation.

List of Green Bay Packers first-round draft picks

The Green Bay Packers joined the National Football League (NFL) in 1921, two years after their original founding by Curly Lambeau. They participated in the first ever NFL draft in 1936 and selected Russ Letlow, a guard from the University of San Francisco. The team's most recent first round selection was Jaire Alexander, a cornerback from Louisville in the 2018 NFL Draft. The Packers have selected the number one overall pick in the draft twice, choosing future Hall of Fame halfback Paul Hornung in 1957 and quarterback Randy Duncan in 1959. They have also selected the second overall pick three times and the third overall pick once. The team's eight selections from the University of Minnesota are the most chosen by the Packers from one university.

Every year during April, each NFL franchise seeks to add new players to its roster through a collegiate draft officially known as "the NFL Annual Player Selection Meeting" but more commonly known as the NFL Draft. Teams are ranked in inverse order based on the previous season's record, with the worst record picking first, and the second worst picking second and so on. The two exceptions to this order are made for teams that appeared in the previous Super Bowl; the Super Bowl champion always picks 32nd, and the Super Bowl loser always picks 31st. Playoff teams will not pick before a non playoff team when determining the initial draft order. So a division winner with a losing record would have a lower pick after a 10-6 team that didn't make the playoffs. Teams have the option of trading away their picks to other teams for different picks, players, cash, or a combination thereof. Thus, it is not uncommon for a team's actual draft pick to differ from their assigned draft pick, or for a team to have extra or no draft picks in any round due to these trades.
