Ara provided respectability to a woeful Northwestern Team that had not had any prior to or shortly after his departure. If you read his Bio the connections he had and developed over time, read like a who's who of Football.  Growing up around Chicago in the 60-70's his name was mentioned early and often especially by Irish Fans!   I cant say for certain but I seem to remember some rumors about him possibly becoming the Header for Da Bears at some point in time.  I recall the Bears were then led by the tandem of Jim Dooley then Abe Gibron.  WOOT WOOT
