    Crowley, who came to Notre Dame in 1921 from Green Bay, Wis., stood 5-11 and weighed 162 pounds. Known as "Sleepy Jim" for his drowsy-eyed appearance, Crowley outmaneuvered many a defender with his clever, shifty ballcarrying. He comprised part of the famous Irish backfield known as the Four Horsemen. Crowley eventually went into coaching at Fordham University, where one of his players was Vince Lombardi. Crowley was elected into the National Football Foundation Hall of Fame in 1966.
