Thank You, 72 – Chuck Halverson

Thank you, Iowa County, for Chuck Halverson. He grew up during the depression, a farm boy who dreamed of playing football on the gridiron at Camp Randall. His dream came true, but not without some hard times, twists and turns, and a world war to fight. He made the varsity football team, got married, raised a family, and started a successful business. Chuck is one of UW Athletics’ oldest surviving letter winners.
