1975 FOOTBALL INDUCTEE
Jack Mulkey has a unique piece of Fresno State football lore. In 1941, the Dos Palos native was the first Bulldog in school history named to play in the East-West game when it was the biggest All-Star competition in the country. Mulkey transferred from Stanford University to Fresno State in 1937 to play for Jimmy “Rabbit” Bradshaw. The stocky 200-pound end was an All-Far Western Conference choice in 1939 and 1940 and an Associated Press Little All-American the same years. He was co-captain of the Bulldogs in his senior year. Mulkey was a four-sport letterman at Dos Palos High School. Showing his athletic versatility after graduating from Fresno State, Mulkey played tennis with Frank Kovacks and was captain of the San Francisco Clippers professional football team. He later played with the Roma Winery softball team. Mulkey was an assistant football coach at Fresno High School and later served as principal there.
