Date of Birth

Princeton University (1896-1899)


Princeton end Arthur Poe was the nephew of famous American writer and poet Edgar Allan Poe. The Poe family was famous in Princeton football history, as Arthur was one of six Poe brothers to star for the Tigers and one of two named All-America. Poe always excelled in the rivalry game against Yale. In the 1898 game, he recovered a Bulldog fumble and raced 95 yards for the only touchdown of the game. The next year, Poe successfully executed the first drop kick of his collegiate career. Worth five points in 1899, his forty-yard kick with seconds remaining lifted Princeton to an 11-10 triumph. The undersized Poe earned All-America honors in 1898-99 and the Tigers lost only once during those seasons, a 5-0 decision to Cornell in 1899. The Tigers captured the National Championship in 1898 with Poe making big plays. He scored on touchdowns runs of 80 yards against Navy and 40 yards against Brown.
