Adam Walsh Born in Churchville, Iowa, on December 4, 1901, Adam Walsh was an outstanding athlete at Hollywood High School in California, and earned varsity letters in basketball, track, and football at the University of Notre Dame. Adam was an All-American center and captain of the 1924 Notre Dame football team under Coach Knute Rockne – ‘the Four Horsemen’ of the backfield and ‘the Seven Mules’ of the offensive line – that captured the imagination of the nation by completing an undefeated season with a win against Stanford in the Rose Bowl.

Captain Walsh played every minute of the Army game in 1924 with two broken hands (for 58 minutes of the game) and never missed a single snap of the ball, was involved in 75 percent of the tackles on defense, and intercepted a pass in the final minutes of the game to preserve a Notre Dame victory. He remains the offensive center on the All Time Notre Dame Team.

Adam served as head coach and athletic director at Santa Clara University, line coach at Yale, and then as a member of the coaching staff at Harvard for a year. In 1935 he accepted the head coaching position at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine. Though Bowdoin had been winless the prior year, Coach Walsh began his twenty-year coaching career at the College with a state championship. Adam’s teams won or tied for the Maine championship in seven of his first eight years at Bowdoin.
