The Arizona Cardinals owner is getting into the Hall of Fame. The Georgetown Prep Athletic Hall of Fame that is.

From the team:

A 1949 graduate of the school that is located outside of Washington, D.C., Bidwill was a two-sport athlete for the Little Hoyas football and baseball teams. As a senior, he was a star fullback and kicker on Georgetown Prep’s undefeated 1948 football squad that won the city championship. A bruising runner as well as the squad’s fastest player, Bidwill led the team in scoring in both his junior and senior seasons.

After graduating from Georgetown, Bidwill then attended Georgetown University before joining the Navy. After his service time was over, he began working with the Cardinals.

Bidwill has been a part owner of the Arizona Cardinals since 1962 and became sole owner in 1972.

From the team:

Bidwill returned last week to Georgetown Prep and on May 31st he received his Hall of Fame medallion from school President Rev. Scott R. Pilarz, S.J.
