Bacon was twice an All-American in football (1910 and 1912). He was "one of only two players not from an Ivy League institution on the 1912 team. One of the other All-Americans on the 1912 team was Jim Thorpe." As an undergraduate at Wesleyan University (class of 1913), Bacon helped pioneer the use of the forward pass.
