QUOTE: Press Box
  • Notre Dame Coach Frank Leahy commented, “Tom Yarr came up the hard way at Notre Dame. He came from a little town in the State of Washington with no reputation, but he fought his way to the top by his willingness to trade a lot of hard effort for success. All American Center in 1931, he easily rates as one of the best centers in Notre Dame history.”
