Obituary - Cincinnati Enquirer (July 4, 1947)
Edward "Red" Krueck, for 29 years head football and basketball coach at Hughes High School, died of a heart attack at Deaconess Hospital last night. He was 52 years old. He lived on Kenwood Road, Blue Ash.
The widely known sports figure collapsed while shopping in Silverton. He was rushed to the hospital by the Silverton Life Squad, but died shortly after being admitted.
One of the most popular athletic figures in Cincinnati, Krueck coached a number of championship grid and cage teams at Hughes, winning public league and city titles.
Krueck retired after a football victory over Withrow in 1945. He had been in poor health for two years. Withrow and Hughes were powerhouses in Public High School competition for many years and Krueck always considered his season successful if he downed the Hyde Park School, no matter how his team fared in other games.
Krueck developed some of Cincinnati's greatest athletes. Ray Nolting, coach of the University of Cincinnati Bearcats, played under Krueck. Krueck's basketball stars at Hughes included Dr. Ellis Flax, Ben Moskowitz, Red Bolton and Bill Westerfeld, who is a ember of the UC cage squad.
Although Krueck was more widely known for his grid and cage game activities, he also coached track and baseball at Hughes for several seasons.
He started John Anderson out in track and Anderson went on to win the discus throw for the United States in the Olympics of 1928.
He also directed the Rapid Electros football team in the late 1920's and coached the L.B. Harrison cage squad in the 1930's.
Krueck played with the Cincinnati Celts, a power in pro football in Ohio shortly after World War I.
Krueck is survived by his widow, Estelle, and a brother, Charles Krueck.
