    Re: Jack Trice gravesite

    I just visited the Hiram, OH wiki page. It lists Jack Trice as a former resident with a short write up of his story. It does seem to be incorrect in that it says the game he died in was played at Iowa State. I thought the game was at Minnesota and he died on the train trip back to Ames.


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    It was in Minnesota and he rode the train back to Ames and died in Ames overnight or the next day if I remember correctly.

    It didn't look like there was much help on the link in finding the grave in the cemetary. Was it hard to find? I'm not sure I could convince Mrs. Velo to stop if I couldn't assure her that I knew exactly where it was.

    I thought he had a descendant that went to school at ISU in the early 2000's. Wasn't his name George Trice?
