Here's a look at another former Heartland football star at number 21 in our countdown.

Murray State's Pete Gudauskas was an All-American lineman and kicker.

He went on to play for the Chicago Bears from 1943-45.

The 1943 Bears team was a world champion; and Gudauskas kicked 86 extra points without a miss. He also kicked a field goal in 1944 to give the Bears a win against the college all-stars.
