About Frankie Albert

He joined a Stanford team that in his 1939 sophomore year, won only one game, leading the coach to install the T-formation.
An intelligent quarterback, he found himself a natural fit in the new system, which relied on deception over brute strength.
He had three daughters with his wife, Martha.
