A great athlete in every sense of the word, Elmore Hackney was a football and track star during his undergraduate days at Duke in the late 1930s. He was twice (1936, 37) named to the All-Southern Conference football team. In 1937, Hackney was voted Duke's Most Valuable Player and was also honored as an All-American. He led the Blue Devils to a three-year (1935-37) record of 24-5-1, one of the best three-year marks in Duke Football history. In 1936 and 1938, he lettered on the Blue Devil track team. Hackney was the Carolinas AAU triple jump champion and a member of the 400 meter champion relay team in 1938. Hackney still holds the record for most punt returns in one game with 11 for 136 yards against Colgate in 1936.
