James Henderson "Monk" Moscrip (September 17, 1913 - October 11, 1980) was an American football player. Born in Adena, Ohio, attended The Kiski Prep School in Saltsburg, Pennsylvania before enrolling at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California. Moscrip became an All-American end at Stanford and was a member of the Stanford football teams known as the "Vow Boys."[1] The "Vow Boys" teams played together from 1934–1936, never lost a game to either USC or Cal, and went to three consecutive Rose Bowl games. Moscrip was selected as a first-team All-American in both 1934 and 1935. After graduating from Stanford, Moscrip later played pro football with the Detroit Lions in 1938 and 1939. He served as a lieutenant in the U.S. Navy during World War II and participated in battles at Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa. After winning a fight against alcohol addiction, Moscrip served as manager of the alcohol rehabilitation center in Woodside, California for nearly 25 years. In October 1980, Moscrip died of a heart attack at his home in Atherton, California, at the age of 67.[1] He was survived by his wife and two daughters.
