I just learned of the death of a great Columbia legend.
Dick Donelli '59, varsity starter at QB in 1957 and 1958, and son of the late Head Coach Aldo "Buff" Donelli died yesterday.
Donelli gave nepotism a good name as he showed incredible toughness playing the key role on the team during his dad's first two years as head coach of the Lions.
After Columbia, Donelli became a dentist but he stayed at Baker Field for years as a standout founding member of the "Old Blue" Columbia rugby club.
Donelli was super tough, playing his last few seasons even while needing a pacemaker!
They don't make them that tough at Yale or Princeton... believe me.
