San Diego Reporter Pieces Together the Incredible Story of USC’s Original Football Star

The family of the deceased man whose ashes were found last month at an Ocean Beach, CA car wash have told KGTV Channel 10 reporter Dan Haggerty that his life story rivals that of the fictitious Forrest Gump. These relatives are absolutely right.

Haggerty (pictured) has been on the story since Day One and is getting major MSM pick-up this week for adding to it. Here are the latest staggering details:

[Henry] Lefebrve’s family says he was a star running back at USC in the 1920s. He not only played in the first football game at the Coliseum in Los Angeles, he scored the first touchdown. He also scored a touchdown against Missouri in the 1924 Christmas Festival Bowl. It was USC’s first bowl victory…

During Lefebrve’s days at USC, he became close friends with actor John Wayne… “They would go to the studios and get jobs during the summertime,” said Lefebrve’s nephew Gil Lefebvre, who now lives outside of Los Angeles.

Gil Lefebvre said that his uncle never pursued life in Hollywood. Instead, he started a series of small businesses and patented a few inventions, including the ping pong net. That idea made him a millionaire.

Update – 14/11/12: Haggerty broadcast an update to his story on November 13. Son Gary says he has no idea where and how his father’s ashes were kept between 1995 and 2012.
