Olympics|Stan Huntsman, Track and Field's Mentor and Passionate Defender, Dies at 84 - New York Times

Monday, December 12, 2016

Stanley Houser Huntsman was born on March 20, 1932, in Scottdale, Pa. He was raised in Indiana and starred in football and track and field at Wabash College, where his father, Owen, was the track coach.As a fullback, Huntsman was named to the Little All-America football team for small colleges. In a game against Ball State, he rushed for 259 yards and five touchdowns. The Indianapolis Star once said, “He was built like a medicine ball, and he ran all doubled up through the line.”The Chicago Cardinals (the N.F.L. franchise now in Arizona) took him in the 20th round of the 1954 draft, but he turned to graduate study and coaching instead.He earned a bachelor’s degree from Wabash in 1954 and a master’s from Ohio in 1956. He was elected to the National Track and Field Hall of Fame in 2004.In addition to his wife, the former Sylvia Scalzi, Huntsman is survived by a son, Stanley Stephen; a daughter, Constance Huntsman Stogner; and three grandchildren.With colleges and universities cutting back on the sport, Huntsman came to believe that for American track and field to continue to flourish, it could no longer rely on the college system alone to produce high-caliber runners, hurdlers, jumpers, pole-vaulters and the rest. He argued that once they graduated, athletes needed further support through national programs to allow them to continue to compete.“The American college system can’t cut it anymore,” he told Track and Field News magazine. “You can’t win with college boys.”Daniel E. Slotnik contributed reporting. We're interested in your feedback on this page. Tell us what you think.
