Jack Sords
"He worked for many years with the King Features syndicate and his cartoons were distributed throughout America through the Central Press Association. His career spanned the years from about 1927 through 1948."

Thomas "Pap" Paprocki - Rembrandt of the Sportspages http://philadelphiaathletics.org/test-99/" by Ronnie Joyner
"During the first half of the 20th century, a period when newspapers thrived because television had yet to take over as the dominant means by which Americans got their news, sports cartoonists thrived, some reaching levels of popularity usually reserved for the athletes that they illustrated. By the mid-1940s one sports cartoonist with the peculiar moniker of "Pap" had separated himself from his crowded field through his very popular nationally syndicated illustrated column SPORTS SLANTS by PAP. Sports fans may not have known why, but they recognized artistic greatness when they saw Pap's art in their sportspages every day.
It started with Pap's dynamic composition, strong black linework, dead-on player likenesses, and subtle use of gray tones to add dimension to his work and bring it to life. Add to that his clever and stylish spot-cartoons that peppered the perimeter of his drawings and you had the formula for success that saw Pap entertain sports fans for nearly 40 years...Pap continued strong through the 1950s and 60 before retiring from his job at the AP in 1967.
He lived in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and showed an affinity for West Point where his son had been a Cadet."[RG-Thomas H Paprocki class of 1954, 1011 Highland Blvd Absecon NJ] Murray Olderman, a legendary sports cartoonist in his own rite, recenty offered a few comments on Pap. "Pap was certainly an influence on me, for his fine draftsmanship and precise technique."

Werner H. Laufer (1902-1933)
He was a sports cartoonist with the NEA syndicate. His "Foxy Pfann" cartoon appeared in newspapers in the late 1920s and his popular sports page feature "Brushing Up Sports" appeared in NEA Service newspapers and the Independent from coast to coast from 1924-1933 before his untimely death.

Alan Maver (1909-1984)
He was raised in New York City, the son of an internationally known Scottish woodcarver. He began his career as an assistant to Feg Murray, whose work was appearing at the time in the New York Sun. After six years of tutelage under Murray, he took over the sports cartoon production. His work was printed in newspapers throughout the country through the United Feature, Central Press, and King Features syndicates. The work of syndicated sports cartoonists like Maver helped hundreds of newspapers who couldn't otherwise afford the services of a full-time sports cartoonist. Maver's syndicated sports cartoons appeared in newspapers throughout America from about 1941 through 1954.

Murray Olderman (1922- )
Before Olderman became a famous cartoonist, he was an infantry officer in the U.S. Army during World II.

He is one of the most versatile stylists. He can do busts or face portraits that look like they've been copied from bronze statuary or he can cover a large panel with many small sprawling figures, each drawn differently and each in fine relationship to the others. He is also a sports columnist. He received bachelors degrees from University of Missouri, Stanford, and a masters degree in journalism from Northwestern. His columns and cartoons were distributed by the Newspaper Enterprise Association (NEA), a Scripps-Howard syndicate since 1952. For the greater part of 35 years, his work appeared in 750 daily newspapers.
He became sports editor at NEA in 1964, executive editor in 1968, contributing editor in 1971, and he loosely retired in 1987. He is also the author of eleven books and illustrator of nine others. He is the founder of the Jim Thorpe Trophy - for the National Football League's Most Valuable Player, and the founder of the Maurice Podoloff Trophy - for the National Basketball Association's MVP. His football murals hang at the Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. In 1974 and 1979, Olderman was named Sports Cartoonist of the Year by the National Cartoonists Society. He received the Pro Football Writers Association's Dick McGann Award in 1979 as outstanding professional football writer. In 1991, the Football Writers Association of America (of which he has served as president)honored him with their McGrane Award.

Army's own Dewitt Coulter aka "Tex" (1923 - 2007) was a cartoonist and artist. The former Army star, played in the NFL (All Pro Teams - 1948, 1951 to 1952 and two Pro Bowls 1951 to 1952 while playing in 69 regular season games) and the CFL. In 1950, "...he joined the sports staff of the Dallas Times Herald and spent a year [and more] turning out delightful cartoons. "When his playing days were over, he and his family remained in Montreal and he became one of Canada's top portrait painters."
http://tshof.org/news/index.html?article_id=314
His sports caricatures were distributed to such papers as the the Sunday_Herald, Bridgeport, Conn..for examples, click the links below

"To most people the switch seemed incongruous," recalls Coulter now, "but I had wanted to be an artist since the sixth grade. I always believed that the only security I have is my own talents."
The switch from football to art was not easy until by dogged application Tex made a commercial artist of himself. Today his sports paintings, rendered with almost photographic realism and in brilliant casein colors, are much in demand across Canada. Like many an orphaned boy, Coulter is deeply interested in children and spends his spare time coaching at the Y. "You'd be surprised how you can live or die over a basketball game," muses Coulter the artist.
