FRED HARTMAN "Fritz", reserve back, was a very dependable man when needed. He showed his under- estimated power in the Hoopeston game when he scored through the middle of the defense. Fred was a very able relief man for both the fullback and quarterbacks. NORMAN HILL "Norm", first left tackle and co-captain, was like a block of granite in the Devil line. He was able to tear the interfer- ence up when a play came his way and when on the weak side he crashed through speed- ily. On offense he opened up the holes with ease. JOHN SEXSON "Johnnie", first fullback and co-captain, was the boy who could gain those two or three yards needed for a first down. His legs were packed with dy- namite, and his ability to com- mand the team was unbeliev- able. "Sex" was very consist- ent in his running ability. MAX PUCKETT "Mike", first right guard, gave, as well as took, his share of punishment to the opponents. He was able to tear open near- ly any line, and his defensive play was extremely good. He is Number One, of the Kickoff Kids, a society restricted to the regular guards. HAROLD SHIVELY "Bud", first left guard, played his first year as regular this season. Number Two, of the Kickoff Kids, was able to give and take with the biggest of them. He was a polished blocker and excelled on de- fensive play. DONALD HEINE "Don", reserve end, was one of the best blocking fiankmen of W. L. this year. He pos- sessed ample weight to make the opponents know when they had been hit. Don always did his share of defensive play. LYNN VER HOEVEN "Rusty", first right tackle, was very essential to Coach Dai- ley's weight problem. This was his first year on the Red Devil varsity. "Rusty" had ample ability to block and "jam up" the offense of the opponent r - fi X x RICHARD DOUGLAS ,I "Doug", alternating quarter- back, was a very fine field gen- eral. Although hindered throughout the season by an injured shoulder, Dick proved extremely valuable to the team. He was quite an asset to Coach Dailey, when things got tough. EUGENE COLLINS "Dutch", reserve tackle, was a great assistance to both regu- lar tackles. It was often he who was sent in as a replace- ment when one of them was injured. "Dutch" showed his best brand of ball in the crash- ing he did during the Broad Ripple game. ALLEN ELWARD "Al", first right halfback, was the third highest scorer in the state. Although handicapped by lack of weight, he was rec- ognized as one of the toughest backs in the conference. "Al's" kicking and running kept the Scarlets in the lead in many occasions. ROBERT RILEY "Horsey", first left halfback, was the "sensation" runner of the backs. Bob was very ac- curate in his passing and kick- ing, and was very able in his open field running. "Horse" got away for several long runs, during the season, which were extremely valuable to the Scarlets. CHARLES LEWIS "Chuck", first right end, was definitely a defensive threat. Charlie was always jamming up the interference and stop- ping the ball carrier. He pos- sessed ample ability to open holes in the defensive line when they were needed also. RICHARD HAM "Dick", alternating right end, was the most accurate pass catcher on the Red Devil ros- ter this year. "Hambone" was quite active on defense as well as offense. Due to a knee in- jury Dick was kept on the side lines frequently. PAUL BRADY "Paul", reserve back, was one of the boys in whom Coach Dailey placed much faith. Paul, as was all reserve backs, was very versatile in his pass- ing and running. It was often necessary for him to play any of three positions. PAGE FORTY-THREE
