Dave Myers (American football) Social Network
David Willoughby Myers (1906 – March 5, 1997) was an American football player. He was one of the few black players in professional American football prior to World War II.
He played professional football in the National Football League (NFL) as a guard and halfback for the Staten Island Stapletons (1930) and Brooklyn Dodgers (1931). He appeared in 13 NFL games, 11 as a starter. He also played for the Clifton Wessingtons of the Interstate Football League in 1933 and for the Churchill Pros in 1941.
In October 1929, he was moved from the guard position to become NYU's starting quarterback. One week later, reports surfaced that NYU had reached a "gentleman's agreement" to bench Myers for a scheduled game with the University of Georgia. The NAACP sent a letter of protest, and the chairman of NYU's athletic control board followed with a statement denying any such agreement and stating, "If we thought Georgia would show such poor sportsmanship as to demand Myers' removal from the lineup we would cancel our contract with the southern school." Gallico also wrote a column advocating that NYU play Myers. In the end, NYU agreed not to play Myers when Georgia refused to participate if Myers played. In response to the decision, Heywood Broun called NYU a "gutless college with a gutless coach." The game proceeded, and, despite demands from NYU fans in the stands, Myers did not play.
He played college football for the NYU Violets from 1926 to 1929. He was rated as "one of the best running guards in the game." Paul Gallico selected Myers as a guard on his 1928 All-America team. Myers also threw the javelin for NYU's track team and set a metropolitan New York record with a distance of 202 feet, 11 inches.
Myers was born in 1906 in New Bedford, Massachusetts, the son of Willoughby Owen Myers and Isabelle Letitia Myers. He attended Stuyvesant High School in New York City. At Stuyvesant, he starred in football and basketball, won honors as a student, and served as president of the student council.
