Sad news about Ed Biles

Postby gundun » Mon Apr 06, 2020 11:42 am

Ed Biles, Xavier's football coach during my time at X and an all-around great guy, passed away Sunday morning after a lengthy battle with Leukemia. He was 88.

This indeed is sad news even amid all the other sad news that envelopes us now. As each year passes, we lose links to the original football program that once existed at Xavier. In a certain respect, club football provided a link and a great number of those players, hopefully will be around for years.

Not all of the clubbers could have distinguished themselves as players on a Biles, Etler or Cecchini team but a good number would have more than held their own with players on those squads. Yet, every one of them is a part of Xavier football history

And as long as there is a link, however attenuated, there can remain a hope that Xavier plays football again.

May Ed Biles rest in peace!
