Anthony C. Nardo Memorial Trophy

The Anthony C. Nardo Memorial Trophy was an individual honor awarded by the University of Maryland football team to its most outstanding lineman of the past season.[1] The trophy was awarded from 1947 to 1969. From 1970 to 1995, it was replaced by the Bob Beall Trophy and Tommy Marcos Trophy.[2]

The award was named in honor of 2LT Anthony C. Nardo, a United States Army officer killed in action in Belgium during the Second World War. Nardo was born in Baltimore, Maryland and attended the University of Maryland where he played football in 1942, before being commissioned into the Army. Nardo was serving in H Company, 502nd Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division when he was killed on January 4, 1945. He was awarded the Purple Heart. His remains are interred at the Luxembourg American Cemetery and Memorial in Luxembourg.[3][4]
