Lawrence T. “Buck” Shaw is synonymous with Santa Clara Football. He assumed the role of head coach in 1936, and lead the team to an incredible winning record of 47-10-2, until Bronco football was suspended for WWII in 1942. His coaching career highlights include a victory over LSU in the 1937 Sugar Bowl, a #9 tie with Notre Dame on the 1938 end of season AP Poll, and another defeat of LSU in the 1938 Sugar Bowl. His successes at Santa Clara did not go unnoticed. In 1946, Shaw continued his coaching career as the first coach of the new San Francisco 49ers franchise. Fourteen years later, as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, his team defeated Vince Lombardi’s Green Bay Packers to win the 1960 NFL Championship. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1972, the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame in 1985, and the Santa Clara Athletic Hall of Fame in 1962. In honor of his contributions to the school, Buck Shaw Stadium was constructed in 1965 on the Santa Clara Campus.
