THE 1928 SEASON
: IVER Falls enjoyed another successful football season in 1928. Under the
u,. o - HO' 0. -.I In
Manion the Falls eleven earned the distinction of being a heady, powerful, and
hard driving team. In the backfield quarterback Manion was teamed with the
same players who had upheld the Red and White colors for the past two years on
Ramer Feld. They were: Standish, MacDonald, and Altenberg, half-backs, and
ClaHin and Klimper, fullbacks.
In the- line were such seasoned players as Luberg,
guard, Hagestad, Jensen, and Farrell, tackles,
Alfonse and Segerstrbm, ends, and Hunt at cen-
ter. New men in Red and White livery were
Bartosh and Keilholtz guards, Krueger, tackle,
and Thomas and Peterson, ends, Schlicht,
quarterback, Larson halfback, and Hammer
fullback. These men played a steady consist-

ttBudh Manion played his third year Of football
as captain and quarterback of the Red and White
team. He Was a good handler of punts, a fine rune
ner, hard blocker, and above all a real leader.
ttBudt, won for himself a reputation as the smart-
est quarterback that River Falls has ever had. The
way he handled his team at Superior when the odds
were against him will long be remembered by River
Falls fans. ttBudtt goes into an athletic contest-
with the kind of River Falls spirit that we hope
all of our future athletes will have. He is the type
that the Red and White are proud of.

Y defeating St. Thomas 20-12 and Hamline 17-0 in pre-season games the Red
and White gridders established recognition as championship contenders.
As the conference season started River Falls began her victorious march when
Stout, Milwaukee, and Eau Claire bowed to the Red and White gridders in
rapid succeSSion. Superior, the uWonder team of the North," was next held to a
scoreless tie by Coach Klandrud,s eleven. The Red and White team remained in
the conference race until the last game of the season when La Crosse succeeded
in defeating us after a hard fought battle by a score of 12-6. The Kellerites were
the only conference team to score on the Falls eleven this year.

Alfonse was moved from the backfield to line
and immediately won for himself a position as a
regular wing man. Al was a dashing, smart, cour-
ageous end who knew where to be and arrived
there on time with a lot of stuff. He was a fine
pass receiver, a good blocker, and a man who was
down under punts. Very few kicks were returned,
and a great deal of credit for the showing of this
years team was due Al. He was always in con-
dition to play and never was injured during the
season. He will make another captain that River
Falls will be proud of.
