Fred Enke Jr Passes Away

Postby b_dog » Mon Apr 14, 2014 5:35 pm

Fred Enke Jr, who teamed with Bill Penn at Arizona in the late 1940's to form the Penn & Enke backfield, passed away today at age 89.

Enke was the Arizona Player Of The Year at Tucson High and led the Badgers to a 52 game winning streak. After becoming a Naval Aviator during WWII, he returned to Tucson, where he played quarterback for coach Miles "Mike" Casteel, basketball for his father, and baseball for Pop McKale. In 1947, he led the nation in total offense on the football field. He also won three conference championships in basketball, and captained the baseball team his senior year while hitting .345. He then played quarterback in the NFL for the Eagles, Lions, and Colts.

Bear Down, and Rest In Peace, Fred Enke, Jr.

A Great Wildcat
