I930 Football By Orin Cassmore Captain Al Holmes rOUNDATIONS for the finest football structure ever built on Pacific Coast soil were laid at Wash- ington last season. Plans for the mighty project had been discussed by the Associated Stu- dents all during the fall of 1929, when Washington ' s old grid edifice was crumbling, bit by bit. In the early part of December of that year it was offi- cially determined by the Board of Con- trol that the best football architect obtainable was to be employed in place of Enoch Bagshaw, who had resigned toward the close of that unfortunate season. On December 12, the appointment of James Phelan, best-known young architect and builder in the Middle West, and a native son of the Pacific Coast, was announced. No expense was spared to bring the molder of Purdue ' s destinies to the Northwest. Phelan arrived literally " out of a clear sky " in early January, sweeping down from the air to Sand Point field, where he was greeted by two thousand cheering students. This enterprising young Irishman lost no time in getting down to work, hie called " spring " practice on the 27th of February!

Schweqlor. Marsk Hufford Lamont, assistant coach and line coach, former head coach at Loyola University of Chicago; Chester " Cotton " W. Wilcox, backfield coach, former star for Phelan at Purdue; Ralph " Pest " Welch, Freshman coach, all-American fullback and member of Phelan ' s 1929 Purdue champions; Eddie Collins, end coach, star on Knute Rockne ' s unde- feated 1929 team. Phelan practically built his team in spring practice, and when it ended in May he had a very good line on his 1930 team. It was granted by everyone that the 1930 season would be a mere building of foundations, uninspiring to watch. and th()t it would be three years before Washington could hope to start win- ning football games. Not so! For even under the strain of the heaviest schedule ever undertaken by a Washington team, Phelan ' s prelim- inary structure stood up well. Three Conference games were won and four lost, while both non -Conference con- tests resulted in one-sided Husky vic- tories. Washington opened the season with a victory over Whitman that produced some mighty good football on the part of Hufford and Clarence Bledsoe, but cost dear in injuries. Dave Nesbit, end, was cracked up rind Hufford suffered Hufford firooU Tfiroufjfi tho Cnrdr. 153
