1963 ATHLETIC HALL OF FAME INDUCTEE
Guy Renzaglia ('39) attended GW on a football scholarship and was a guard for the Colonials gridiron team. The 178-pound left guard was known for being "hard playing and heady," according to the Cherry Tree. In 1939, Renzaglia was selected for All-District honors, and was celebrated as "one of the strongest points in a powerful Buff line," by the Cherry Tree.
Renzaglia went on to receive a Ph.D. in counseling psychology from the University of Minnesota, then served in the U.S. Army Air Corps from 1941 to 1946 as a civilian instructor and officer, graduating from Officer Candidate School in 1942. He held various professorial and service positions at major Midwestern universities, including at Southern Illinois University, where he founded the Rehabilitation Institute. In 1982, he co-founded Alto Vineyards in Alto Pass, IL.
Renzaglia and wife Betty have seven children.
