Chelcie Ross, class of 1964, appeared in three of the highest-grossing sports movies ever made:
Ross came to San Marcos on a baseball scholarship, and he also served as the student commander of the Air Force ROTC. He didn’t get into acting until his senior year, when he was cast in the title role of King Lear. He earned a Bronze Star while on active duty in Vietnam, then left the military in 1970 to pursue a career in acting.
Ross is profiled today by Steve Wulf in the digital version of ESPN Magazine.
