Edward Frank Danowski (September 30, 1911 – February 1, 1997) was an American football player who played quarterback and halfback in the National Football League (NFL). Danowski played for the New York Giants for seven seasons (1934–1939, 1941) and quarterbacked the team when they won the 1934 and 1938 NFL Championship Games. He played college football at Fordham University.[1] He returned to Rose Hill as the head coach for the Rams from 1946 to 1954, amassing a record of 29–44–3 (.401). His 1949 squad reached #20 in the polls.[2]

He grew up in Aquebogue, his father, Anton, was a Polish immigrant.[3] His son, John Danowski, is the head lacrosse coach at Duke University as well as the longtime coach of the Hofstra Pride, and his grandson, Matt Danowski, is second in Division I in total points in NCAA lacrosse history.
