Bob Plzak was an excellent athlete at CFHS, as his nine letters in three sports attest. He was one of very few 4-year lettermen in football, playing tackle on the 1948 undefeated team. He was co-captain of his team in 1949 and an All-County Team selection that same year. He also earned three letters in track and two in basketball. Bob Plzak died in Korea in 1952 while serving as a medic in the United States Army.
