I was looking through the November/December BAM and noticed that Alan P. Coller ’45 had died. I knew him slightly. My younger brother, Frank, and I started at Brown together in September 1941 and joined the football team, but we didn’t last long among all the bigger and more experienced players. Coller was trying out for the team too, and the three of us stayed on the team for a few scrimmages. I don’t remember if Alan went on to play with the team, but it was probably the only time any school anywhere has had a collar and a pair of cuffs on its football team!
