Babich played both football and basketball at Fordham. He would play basketball in the ABL while coaching at Saint Peter's University, and then was a professional wrestler in the 1950's.

There was another George Babich from DeKalb, Illinois, born in 1918, died in 1984. His obituary says nothing about Fordham, Saint Peter's, football, wrestling or basketball; he lived for years as an electrician in Chicago. Not the same guy, but he is identified as the baseball player on Wikipedia.

Possibly George Babich, Dec 3 1920 - February 1981
