American football halfback in the National Football League (NFL) for the Cincinnati Reds (1934), Boston Redskins (1935), Philadelphia Eagles (1935), Pittsburgh Pirates (1935, later renamed the Steelers) and the Cleveland Rams (1937). Nicknamed the 'Rose of Sharon,' he also played for the Rams while they were still members of the second American Football League as well as the AFL's Rochester Tigers. Prior to his professional career, Mike played college football at the University of Pittsburgh.
After retiring he moved to Hemet, California, where he remained active playing golf and other activities. However, his inability to stay active due to pain in his hip made him decide to get hip replacement surgery. He died on 28 June 1989, aged 79, as a result of hepatitis contracted during the procedure.
