J. Percy Given was a college football player and coach.



He was an All-Southern center for the Georgetown Hoyas of Georgetown University,[1] weighing 225 pounds.[2][3] Georgetown authorities claimed it was Given, as opposed to Germany Schulz, who was the first "roving center" or linebacker in the game against Navy in 1902.[4] Given was selected as the second team center for the Georgetown all-time football team.[5] One writer called him "the greatest center that Georgetown has ever had."[6]


Given assisted coaching the team in 1906 and 1908.[7][8][9] He was inducted to the Georgetown Athletic Hall of Fame in 1953.[10]
