One of Ace’s best sports memories was being a member of the famous undefeated 1939 San Jose State Spartans football team.
The Spartans marched over the competition to finish with a 13-victory year, no losses. The Spartans had a 11-2 record for the 2012 season. The only other undefeated season came in 1932 when the Spartans went 7-0-2.
In the photo Ace is number 31 on the bottom row. You’ll notice that there is some duplication of the numbers.

The legendary Pop Warner was an advisory coach for this team.
