Francis Edward Heuring

Football ∙ Rochester

 

 

 

 

Ed Heuring led a busy life in sports and the Marine Corps and he didn't plan to take things easy after he retired from the Marines on May 1, 1983, with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. His Marine Corps service included two years in Vietnam (1966 and 1967). Ed played football for the famous Quantico Marines and later coached the team for two seasons (1969 and 1970), compiling a 17-5 record exclusively against college teams. At Rochester High School (1949 to 1953), Ed earned three letters in football and two each in basketball and track. His football prowess earned him an athletic scholarship to the University of Maryland, where he was a star tackle from 1954 to 1956. Ed received honorable mention in 1955 from the AP, UPI, and International News Service polls. He was a member of the undefeated Maryland team that went to the 1956 Orange Bowl only to lose to Oklahoma, 20-6. After graduating from Maryland in 1957, Ed played two years as a tackle with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League, then moved to the Denver Broncos in 1960 for the first season of the American Football League, but an injury ended his playing days and he entered the Marines. In addition to his criminology degree from Maryland, Ed also has earned a master's degree in psychology from Northern Colorado University and a masterís degree in business administration from Webster College in St Louis.
