9. John Straw, WR/DE, 1962

Straw was a crucial piece throughout Pueblo’s run to the state championship in 1961, the school’s only outright title in its history. Straw was an All-State selection as receiver in 1961 and was the co-captain of the All-City team. He made an “outstanding” catch on a throw by All-State quarterback Richard Martinez in the championship game that helped Pueblo dig out of a eight point hole in the final quarter to beat St. Mary’s 16-14. Straw also was an All-City selection as a junior and played on both sides of the ball. Photo copied from yearbook.
