Clarence 'Ted' Huntley was a gifted athlete at Syracuse playing baseball, basketball and track. Huntley would play in the first game of the 1917-1918 season as a reserve guard.

Huntley would join the navy in the summer of 1918. He would serve on a torpedo boat destroyer, twice making a trip over to France [1]. He would return to school in 1919, where he would be captain of the track team, participating in the pole vault, long jump, hurdles and relay team. Huntley was a pitcher on the baseball team in 1917 and 1918. He would graduate from Syracuse in 1920.

Huntley would compete in the 1920 Olympic Trials for the Decathalon, finishing in 12th place. He would receive offers to play professional baseball, instead turning them down to get into investment banking. Eventually he would become involved with the railroad industry, eventually becoming president of the Central Railroad of Tennessee

Huntley would pass away in July 1961 [2].
