One of Lowell High School’s greatest all-round athletes, Henry Mazur lettered in four sports for the Red and Gray. Hank was accorded All-State Honors on the gridiron his senior year. He won a City Batting Crown while leading the baseball team and starred on a New England Champion American Legion Junior Team. He also led the basketball and track teams. His track coach, Mike Haggerty, considered him one of the two greatest athletes he coached in over 40 years at Lowell High.
After a year at Boston College, Hank transferred to West Point and went on to star for Army. Elected Football Captain of the Army Team for 1942, he was named to several All-American teams as a legitimate triple threat back.
