Edward Lodge earned the nickname “Mr. Swift” on the Boise Junior College 1953-54 Bronco football teams. Known for his quick, illusive running and his leadership ability, he was a NJCCA All-American in his sophomore year. He scored 15 touchdowns for the Broncos that season. Also in 1954, the Broncos, 9-1-1 in regular season play, met Compton in the Potato Bowl. Lodge ran 60 yards for the only Bronco score, and the Broncos lost in a thrilling 7-6 game. Lodge later played football at the College of Idaho, where he was quarterback and received All-American recognition. Lodge attended law school and as 1993 is a United States district court judge in Idaho.
