IT'S NOT everyday that you get to come face to face with a
legend. But that opportunity was presented to me this week
and I was loath to pass it up, even if it meant postponing my
How often does one get the chance to meet a man like
Moose Krentz, and how often can one talk to a man like him in
a room surrounded by the glories which made up his past?
Moose Krentz is out of sports now. He quit the game after
more than 50 years last December, but he has no regrets. The
game was the major part of his life for that half-century and
it owes him almost as much as he owes it.
"I love the game. I still do, and I always will," Moose said.
"But I knew there was a time to get out, and I did my getting
out when getting out was still better for me than it could
be staying in."
But before Moose got out he had accomplished a lot-
perhaps more than any other man in the history of the
sport. Moose was involved in the game, at all levels in his
career-on the field as a player, on the bench as a coach,
and finally in the front office as an executive.
And in all realms of the game Moose was an innovator, one
who contributed more to the development of the game than he
ever was told.
First, as a.player, which Moose recalls fondly, "was the
best years of my life. It was hard work, but it was fun, and I
loved all the torture, and the sweat, and we came to play 'cause
we loved the game and that's the way itwas when we was
Moose Krentz set records at college, and later in'the
pros. And when his career came to an untimely end at age
30 Moose remembers vividly, "I didn't know what was happen-
ing next. My life was beginning but it was over already and I
wanted it to never be the way it had been if it was going to be
this way again."
But, in fact Moose had just begun. He took over as a coach
and in college and in pro ball he ltered the game - making
it far more like it it today than it ever will be again.
"I never thought that I was doing things different back
then," Moose admits, "but then when you're young that's
always the way it is. If I had to start over now there's not
more or less that I could've begun with."
Begin Moose did, and even he is surprised that it didn't end
for nearly four decades. "It was going to be two, three years,
maybe five I thought, and when it was ten already it seemed
like more, but Lord, that couldn't have been better."
In his long association with sports Moose has seen players
come and go, styles change, and sports become big business.
How does he view these developments?
"The game's a lot bigger than it was in my day, but that's
not 'cause there's more of them. We had the talent then but not
the way some of them could today.
"Sure, there's business in the game, now, but where isn't
there? That's not bad, boy. It's what America's about and that's
why I love it."
What kind of advice does the Moose offer a boy thinking of
sports as a career? Well, the answer may be surprising. "No,
I wouldn't let him do it, if he could. There's too much being,
done here and not enough being said. I'd start in aluminum.".
Moose Krentz is more than a living legend. He is a symbol.
A symbol of perpetual youth, of perpetual optimism. His kind
is what kept sports from being not only a form of recreation,
but a way of life. But, even Moose has regrets.
"If I'd been here ten years later," he wistfully admits, "I
could be richer even than if I hadn't played the game. Look
what these boys are making now, and even if they are big,"
he added with a wink of his still incivise eye, "they're not
