Three Who Contributed to Catawba's Football Program Die

   Three men, a coach and two alumni who were involved in Catawba College’s Football Program, have died.

Former Coach Pres Mull of Lexington, N.C., who led the Indians during the 1959 through the 1961 seasons, died June 30.  Alumni Harold W. Carter ’56 of Wingate, N.C. and Dr. Amadeo F. Tomaini Sr. ’42 of Crawfordville, Fla., died June 28 and May 25, respectively.
A World War II pilot, Mull spent most of his career coaching football.  Before and after his stint at Catawba, he worked as an educator and coached high school football at Lexington High School.  Under his leadership, the Lexington Yellow Jackets won the Western N.C. State Championship in 1967.  In 1971, he served as head coach for the Shrine Bowl.  He is a member of both the Davidson County and the State of N.C. Hall of Fame.

Carter, who is a member of both Catawba College’s and Davidson County’s Hall of Fame and a Little All-American, spent most of his post-Catawba years as head football coach at Forest Hills and Monroe High Schools.  An avid golfer, he won numerous trophies on the Senior Amateur Golf Circuit.  He is survived by wife Dianne Hargett Carter who is a 1955 Catawba alumna.

Tomaini, whose was given the nickname “Army” by Sportscaster Red Barber, played tackle for the Indians.  He also played one year in that position for the N.Y. Giants.  He had a varied career, working as a strong man for Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus, as the Masked Marvel and the Mad Russian in the New Jersey professional wrestling circuit, as a small business owner, and as a high school educator and coach.  Tomaini’s granddaughter Valerie is a 1996 Catawba alumna.
