Carl Etelman (1900-1963) was the first Tufts alum to play professional football. Carl Etelman was born on April 1, 1900 in Fairhaven, Massachusetts. After attending Fairhaven High School, he enrolled at Tufts College in 1920. While at Tufts, Etelman was a member of Phi Epsilon Pi and a letterman in football, baseball, basketball, track, and wrestling. He is perhaps best known for kicking a 48-yard field goal with a broken foot, helping Tufts defeat Massachusetts Agricultural College (later the University of Massachusetts Amherst) in the final game of the 1923 season. After receiving his Bachelor's from Tufts in 1924, Carl Etelman went on for graduate study at Boston University and Harvard University.
