November 1, 1958 - ND Beats the Heisman Winner

By Olson

Future Navy Heisman Trophy winner Joe Bellino is a soph HB.

George Izo gets his first start of the year for the Irish at QB Interestingly, Izo returns the opening kickoff 17 yds...then throws the first of his 3 td passes on the day.

On the following kickoff, a Navy return man fields the kick and hands off on a reverse to Joe Bellino. Joe head 84 yds untouched for a td.

The Irish continue to score but on the next two kickoffs, Monte Stickles tried on-side kicks(keeping that ball away from Bellino)-Navy recovers one, ND recovers the other.

Bellino would score another td on the day-matched by NDs Red Mack who caught a Izo pass for a td and returned a punt 65 yds for another Irish TD.

FINAL: ND 40 #15 Navy 20

Keywords: football, navy, george izo, monte stickles, red mack
