New school in Waterloo named after a WWI Hero who was also the First Hawkeye All-American

So, this new school is being built about a mile from where I live in Waterloo, IA. I've known for awhile that it was to be named for Fred Becker, a WWI hero from Waterloo. But I didn't realize he was also a football All-American in Hawkeye History (first in any sport to be a first-team AA). I guess he was honored at halftime of the Iowa-UNI football game in 09, and with an article in the Hawkeye football Program that was sold at the 08 Purdue game, and he has been enshrined in the UI Athletics Hall of Fame. Obviously, we all love Nile Kinnick, but this story is similar in many ways. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fred_Becker http://bloximages.chicago2.vip.townnews.com/wcfcourier.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/c/14/c1477cf8-1bf7-11e0-8b54-001cc4c03286/4d29bdb5ab613.preview-300.jpg
