Football (Inducted 1964)


Guy Hottel ('26) was an offensive lineman for GW's football team. Weighing just 160 pounds, he earned three golden footballs in his college career and was earned a spot on the All-District Team in 1923 when he was noted for being "one of the most aggressive rushmen in the District," by The Hatchet. Hottel served as captain of the football team in 1924 and was credited for leading the team to victory against Catholic University on Thanksgiving Day in front of 12,000 spectators.

Hottel became an FBI special agent in Washington in 1934, and after World War II became chief of the agency's Washington field office. He later became executive secretary of the Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association, where he received outstanding achievement awards in 1973 and '74.

Hottel married twice, and had two sons, Chandler and William. He died in 1990.
