Al Blozis

Al Blozis played just three seasons for the Giants, 1942-44. He immediately made a favorable impression on the team after arriving in 1942 and quickly earned a starting assignment at tackle. Blozis played in the 1944 championship game against Green Bay. Immediately after the Giants’ loss to the Packers, Blozis was sent overseas to fight in World War II. An Army lieutenant, he was killed in action in France just six weeks later. The Giants retired Blozis’ No. 32 jersey.
