Herd's Lengyel, Williams honorary bowl captains

By Staff reports

Marshall legends Jack Lengyel and Herschel "Woody" Williams will serve as honorary captains at the Military Bowl as the Herd faces Maryland on Dec. 27 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Md.

Lengyel, Marshall's head coach from 1971-74, took over the Thundering Herd program following the tragic plane crash on Nov. 14, 1970 that took the lives of all 75 on board.

Williams, a Fairmont native, is a retired U.S. Marine who received a Purple Heart and the Congressional Medal of Honor for his actions and bravery in the Battle of Iwo Jima during World War II.
