The Duke. That nickname likely is enough for most of you to know I’m referencing the actor John Wayne who’s long career as the iconic American male of his day, could almost be said to have come by accident after loosing his football scholarship to the University of Southern California.
QUESTION – What injury caused Wayne to loose his scholarship to USC?
ANSWER: Wayne also played on the USC football team under coach Howard Jones. A broken collarbone injury curtailed his athletic career; Wayne later noted that he was too terrified of Jones’ reaction to reveal the actual cause of his injury, a bodysurfing accident. He lost his athletic scholarship, and without funds, had to leave the university. As a favor to his coach, a movie producer got him a job a movie studio working on sets.
