ing break up the other team's play.
Ingle, playing his last year of foot-
ball, proved a good manager of the
team. His head work was of the best
and he was also an able passer and
kicker. He was always a good re-
ceiver of punts and gained many
yards by this method. He will be
greatly missed the coming season.
Tate had the weight and height and
this determined the breaking up of
the other team's plays. He was
equally as good on the offense, smear-
ing passes and making large gains.
He will be with the team next year
and, being more experienced, should
show up well.
Davis, Harold-Right Tackle
Davis, a sophomore playing his
first year of football, showed up well.
He was used in the backfield at first,
but, on account of his size, the coach
moved him to the line. He always
played a hard game and many times
would throw men for losses. He is
the main cog around which the coach
will build that side of his line next
Leach, another senior, played his
second and last year of high school
football. He was used as a backfield
man last season, but because of his
weight was moved to the line. He
gave all he had at all times and was
always helping break up opponents'
plays. He will leave a hole in the line
that will be hard to till next season.
Keith, another senior, played a fine
game at center. He was on the in-
jured list earlier in the season, but
played enough games to show his
stuff. He was fast and therefore hard
to keep from breaking up plays. He
was an accurate passer and made
large holes which meant gains. Very
few players ever came over him that
were not stopped. He will be greatly
missed next season.
Reed, a sophomore, played his first
year of football. He was used on and
od last year, but failed to make the
squad. He had the weight and speed
and this aided him in throwing men
for losses. He will be back next year
and should be of much help to the
"Mussie," a senior, ended his foot-
ball career for H. H. S. this year. He
was the man around which that side
of the line was built. Injuries kept
him out of a few games, but he played
enough to show his real worth to the
team. He seldom failed in making
holes and take his man out of the
play. He was a sure tackle and very
few plays got by him. With him out
of the line, a large gap is left to be
filled next season.
"Nellie," a junior, playing his first
year as regular, played a whale of a
game. He was always breaking up
opponents' plays and because of his
height he had the ability to go up in
the air and snare passes. He should
be of great aid to next year's grid-
ironers. He was another man from
Hoopeston on the all-county team.
"Bob," a junior, played his first
season of football. He played in sev-
eral games and showed up well. He
has speed and is a good receiver of
passes. He will be of great value to
the team next season.
This was "Swede's" first year of
football and he performed well. He
had the weight and speed for a line-
man. He played in several games
and showed opposing schools that H.
H. S. was not weak in linemen. He is
a senior and this will be his last year
playing football for H. H. S.
