SHARE Lattner’s legacy lives on at Fenwick

Legendary former Fenwick player Johnny Lattner not only attends every football game this season, but a flag bearing his name and retired jersey number of 34 flies beneath the American flag at home football games at Morton West in Berwyn. Lattner, who won the Heisman Trophy in 1953 at Notre Dame, recently posed with his four grandsons currently playing for the Friars (from left): junior tight end Ryan Smith, senior receiver Danny Lattner, senior defensive back John Lattner and junior running back Robert Spillane. A fifth grandson, Luke, is a senior basketball player and does not play football. Luke is the twin brother of John. Spillane also plays on the basketball team.
