Why Jim Thorpe?

Born on May 28, 1887 in a one-room cabin near Prague, Oklahoma, he was a descendant of the last great Sauk and Fox Chief Black Hawk, a noted warrior and athlete. His Indian name, Wa-Tho-Huk, translated to “bright path the lightning makes as it goes across the sky”.

In 1911, Thorpe scored 25 touchdowns and 198 points to lead an outstanding Carlisle (Pa.) Indian School team. This launched him toward a pro football career, highlighted in 1920 when he helped found the American Professional Football Association, which would evolve into the National Football League.

He was voted "The Greatest Athlete of the First Half of the Century" by the Associated Press and became a charter member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. But Thorpe's legend was galvanized into America's conscience at the 1912 Olympics, when he won the decathlon and pentathlon in Stockholm. At the awards ceremony, King Gustav V of Sweden congratulated him: "Sir, you are the greatest athlete in the world."

In 1920 during his time playing professional football, Thorpe was named the first president of the American Professional Football Association which later became the National Football League.
