DICK KEMPTHORN Destined to go down in football history as one of the finest line backers ever to come from the Mid-West, Dick Kempthorn wound up his grid career with a re- sounding pat on the back from his teammates who voted him the well-deserved honor of " Most Valuable Player " . Seeing only limited offensive action " the Killer " was gen- erally overlooked by Ail-American selectors, an omission disputed by those who had witnessed explosive Kempthorn tackles on play after play of every Wolverine contest. 216

AL WISTERT Last and most colorful of the fabulous Michigan Wisterts, Alvin Wistert climaxed his football career by being named as an All-American tackle for the second straight time. Thus Alvin surpassed the feats of brothers Albert and Francis each of whom won coveted Ail- American honors once while holding down a tackle slot for the Wolverines. Captaining the 1949 squad " Moose " recovered from an early-season knee injury to lead Michigan to a Conference Co-Championship and once again win the plaudits of writers and fans alike for his bone-smashing work as the bulwark of the defensive unit. Al closes a Michigan tradition that began with Francis in 1932 and was carried on by Albert in ' 41. 215

LLOYD HENEVELD (left) from Hol- land, Michigan, helped anchor the center of the defensive unit. Lloyd piled up the opponents offensive plays and spent one afternoon in Minnesota ' s backfield. The 190-pounder made up for his lack of size with aggressiveness. BOB VAN SUMMERN (right) started his football career at Annapolis, came to Ann Arbor and soon became a starter at the wing back position. Teamed with the right end, Bob sent many opposing players reeling back and opened huge holes for the backfield men. DON MCCLELLAND (left) was the work-horse of the ' 49 squad. Probably the most under publicized player on the squad, " Slasher " played more than his share of offense and defense. He played 60 minutes in the Ohio State and Purdue games. OZZIE CLARK (right) is a slashing end who became famous for shoe-string tackles. One of the outstanding defensive ends of the Western Conference, Clark began his collegiate days at Notre Dame. After he talked to Tom Peterson in Japan the Irish lost a freshman and Michigan gained a great end. 217
