Henry Rudolph "Peter" Pund (January 27, 1907 – October 17, 1987) was an American football player. He was elected to the Georgia Tech Hall of Fame in 1958, the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame in 1977, and the College Football Hall of Fame in 1963.[1][2][3][4] At Georgia Tech, he was a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity.[5]

"I sat at Grant Field and saw a magnificent Notre Dame team suddenly recoil before the furious pounding of one man–Peter Pund," said legendary coach Knute Rockne in 1928. "Nobody could stop him."[2]
