WHEREAS, Mr. Dudley, the 19 year-old captain of the football team in the fall of his last year at the University, won numerous honors, including membership on every major All-American team, and was the national leader in scoring, winning the sobriquet ―Bullet Bill,‖ not so much for his speed but for his skill in advancing steadily and surely to the goal line, evading all opposing players; and

WHEREAS, Mr. Dudley was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League and led the League in ground gaining; and
WHEREAS, Mr. Dudley left the Steelers in 1942 to join the Air Force, but returned, after the War, from duty in the Pacific as a bomber pilot to rejoin his team for the latter part of the 1945 season; and
WHEREAS, Mr. Dudley was chosen the National Football League's ―Most Valuable Player‖ in 1946; and
WHEREAS, Mr. Dudley, after playing several later seasons with the Detroit Lions and the Washington Redskins, coached at Yale University and with the Redskins before returning to the University of Virginia as backfield coach; and
WHEREAS, in 1956 Mr. Dudley was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame, in 1966 he was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and in 1972 Mr. Dudley was elected to the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame; and
WHEREAS, Mr. Dudley subsequently became a successful businessman in Lynchburg; and
WHEREAS, Mr. Dudley served in the Virginia House of Delegates from 1966 to 1974; and

WHEREAS, Mr. Dudley died in Lynchburg on February 4, 2010;
RESOLVED, the Board of Visitors pays tribute to the memory of William McGarvey Dudley, perhaps the best known of all University of Virginia athletes, whose superb athleticism brought honor to himself and to the University, remembers his later and equally devoted service to the University as a Member of the Board of Visitors, and offers its deepest sympathy to Mrs. Dudley and her family.
