Bert Metzger

Bert Metzger

Bert Metzger (1909 – March 7, 1986) was an American football player.

A 5'9", 152 pound guard from Chicago, Metzger played at the University of Notre Dame and was nicknamed the "watch-charm guard" because of his relatively small size. Metzger played a key role on the Fighting Irish teams that won National Championships in 1929 and 1930, and he was named a consensus All American in 1930. Coach Knute Rockne said that Metzger was the best guard he had ever seen.

After his football career had ended, Metzger worked as an executive at Bowman-Dean Foods. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1982.
