Surprise smites us at the Start for the eleven which has far and away excelled All others in the accumulation of touch from touchdowns and Points has escaped the observation of the experts and until now has remained undiscovered. This team is the eleven of Kendall College in Oklahoma which fighting its Way through a schedule of comparative severity Hue closed us Campaign without a defeat with every game decisively won and with the stupendous total of 566 Points representing numeric ally 80 touchdowns 71 goals from touch Downs and 5 foals from the Field. The total of touchdowns in themselves Are records and the 6 goals like Wise furnish a tie for first place in goals from placement. Who we would like to know can be the players whose prowess this Par Venu Western team overrides the Veteran and formidable elevens of the Middle West the South and Tho East the answer is not but player for one marvelous player like Lochinvar Cornea out. Of Tho West and All unknown rides away with five football honors of the nation. The player s name is Ivan h. Grone.

Morning Sido and Tennessee Lead with Only pointy by the Way Trinity experienced an other run of this class 96 Yards in length this fall. This second run waa reeled off by Elmer q. Oliphant of the army can Fht them ova. Many May think that the Lunback punt to a touchdown is similar to the Lunback of a Kickoff. On the Kickoff however Only two return plays Are pos sible a Lunback and a return kick. Against the punt formation the defense must prepare for a run. A punt and a for Ward pass. On the other hand the of sense which at the instant of the kick becomes the defense possesses a slight advantage Over the corresponding Side on the Kickoff since the men going Down the Field under a punt May Start with the Ball and Advance usually about ten Yards ahead of the punt. More than fifty runs with caught punts this autumn has terminated in touchdowns three of which won the games a they occurred and one of which in Tho Ohio state wis contain Battle actually won the Champion a hip of the Middle West. The longest dash in this class was by Alfred p. Jenkins of Iowa in the tatter s game with Purdue. In was ninety five Yards. Iowa and Pur due had struggled throughout the first period without scoring. So impregnable had each eleven found the other s line that the running attack had Aub Elded on each Side and the Battle had become a Duel Between the punting batteries. It a Long sailing punt from Purdue that in the second half settled snugly in the arms of Jenkins who stood on his own line. Springing who his first stride through the arms of Muse find Van Aken Purdue s ends Jenkins. Swerved abruptly to the right and slicing to t Ween the Pur duo forwards like a knife in a blinding burst of Speed he rounded the Purdue flank and dashed Down the Field.

Jenkins a lightly changing his Pace ran straight at Hake. As the latter leaped for the tackle Jen Kins leaped away to the Side and in an other instant has swept across Purdue s p Oal Lino for the Tow Down that crowned the longest run of the year with a caught punt. Catches 80 one of the optical illusions in football that is the source of pleasant but mis leading dreams and reveries is the Pic Ture of a player receiving a Forward puss hurled from behind or near his own goal line and running with it the full length of the Field. Many elevens try it but Dili less statistics prove that none this fall have gotten away Wlton the Man Euver. Out of a Hundred and More successful Forward passes which wer6 carried to a touchdown Only four can be found which Are linked with a run of fifty or More Yards in length. The longest of these runs from a completed Forward pass occurred in a game Between the University of St. Louis and the College of William and a Phil. In this struggle Charles Forner of the latter institution caught a i Vuici Val eos run from scrimmage of the year. Ron from kick. One Oates Ory of Long run still remains no has made the longest run to a touchdown with a Ball captured on a blocked kick a. G. Ramsay of North says the South is first with forty three Yarda against Vir polytechnic and the South to. Will take in him with the Thart. Two Yard run of j. H. Preas of of org in the tame with correctly claimed gentlemen of the South. Be tween North and South we will Sav some scraps and shreds of the honors o the autumn from mighty West. Having ascertained which players hav made the longest runs in the various methods of the running attack let u see who have made the most runs t touchdowns in each department of run Nizik play. This quest Brines us face i face with one of the most astounding features of football in 191c, for All o these excellencies except one conc id in one Man John h. Gilroy of George town it is Gilroy who has made the most touchdowns nine on Long from scrimmage forty Yards being the on the debit Side of their football led nas5 of sixteen Yards which was hurled . And Princeton is third with an a own 4-Yard line. He thereupon Rul loped eighty Yards for a touchdown while n rub Cund Halo formed in the sky above the town of Aledo. 111., indicative verse 1c. What is that you say toil would also like to know what College has been beaten the worst Well two teams tie for the distinction. Both Are from Pennsylvania but As the writer too is a Pennsyl Vanton hit will not divulge their besides in our Rood old Pennsylvania German Tongue was a yachts among Tho team records of Tho season Cornos the largest score Ever amassed in an intercollegiate knee. Defeated Cumberland by 222 to 0, thereby supplanting the previous rec Ord of Minnesota 146, Grinnell 0. Which has disfigured the record since when you consider that 222 Points rep resents thirty two touchdowns Assum ing All goals to have been kicked there to All institutions of learning that Wil Liam and Vashti too was a football Power. But what about the other link in these k spectacular Forward puss itself Northwestern of Naples Oliie. Ill possessed this fall a dazzling Forward pass Hattery manned by Fred b. Kluck Hohn at the passing end and by Oliver mender at the receiving end. Theae two players fairly grooved the air with grenades until in the game with Knox they broke All previous records by throw ing and catching a Forward pass at fifty five Yards measured from the line of scrimmage and seventy Yards measured from. It that be Orfila scored a. From the Point from which thrown. Do touchdown every ninety seconds through know that the spartans Twenty out the fizzle. Surely no one would rail Fly e Hundred years ago played a game of the affair a game. Football in which the principal feature was the Forward pass in fact the most frequent query to confront Tho Foo Thul sin mistician is can it be possible that among the thousands of runs achieved upon the country s thou Sands of football Fields this there can be one run surpassing All others in length if there is Mir a run where did it occur How loner was it Ond to made our quickly and Ensley yield the answer but puzzles us by presenting figures that i a Geod Tho length of the Field. To our and Demerit there not Only is of run of this character hut there is another. Both the result of captured fumbles both Over 100 Yards in but nne Shorter than Tui other. But Are still for among our treasures is it photograph of Tho Premier run of the year marvellously caught by n haphazard student snap shooter at the very instant the play attained its critical Point. Run of reason. The longest run of tin year occurred upon mul Tomah Field at Portland ore., pass in fact their game was named after this feature. The same greek Root is preserved in our word a weapon hurled Forward. Therefore to to Kluckhohn and Stenger of Northwest Ern goes the record for the longest har 1" the history of american longest run of year. Tiit011, flu ote these payers from Illinois Are coming in a file to carry away these natlona1 football honors Well Here is another. He too comes from a team University known As Northwestern. everyone know and As the different Ellinb of the name also indicates from Northwestern University which is located at Evanston this player 13. P. Williams leans into one of these frames reserved for the greatest performers in All football by having made the longest run of the. Year from an intercepted Forward Nasa 102 Gest from an intercepted Forward pass Yards which also is the second Lon in the intense rational game Between the run Ottlie year achieved in any manner University of Nebraska and Oregon a says wll agricultural College from of Railis. The hero at the play is George famous As a sprinter in the track sports of Tho Pacific Northwest. At the moment this great run occurred was about to score u second touchdown against Oregon. A tandem had formed and carry of Nebraska but let us Honvo to description of the play the Pon or tin modest Man who made it. Oregon s Little Quarter Back. George i was playing defensive it Sartor that afternoon and was closer in than Kiim it was Nebraska s last Down. The Sig nals sounded and instantly in off tackle plunge developed on our loft tackle r o Pla Liams describing the ruh7 defence of my own goal line. The pass whizzed by me slightly to one Side forc ing to to Toke a str do backward in order to catch it. Which i did and then got away for a run that scored a touch Down. But where you new Aie asking docs the aristocratic old come in these individual feats of football a hero comes our Champion in the person of w e. Swope of Dickinson College you May Jeat because he a member of a minor eleven but the exploit by which he saves the East from oblivion in King runs of the autumn this Youngf minimum run differentiating Long from Short runs. It is Gilroy who has score More touchdowns four by running Back punts and it is Gilroy who has made More touchdowns four by intercepting Forward passes. Incidentally Kilroy is the second Hig Henf scorer in the United states. But who has wrested from Gilroy the remaining Honor of having scored the most touch Downs by completing Forward passe Why Thornas Whalen fellow Back of Gilroy on the Georgetown eleven. Whalen has made eight touchdowns this fall by his ski ii in of atoning Forward passed and running them through to his opponents goal Lino. Thus Georgetown oddly Takos All four team honors in the run Ning attack. Kicking Long Field goals. Now kickers it is your turn to a marshalled and to have your feats com pared one with another and with your great predecessors upon the Gridiron not less than five of you have kicked Field goals this from the fifty Yard line and beyond. This is double the corps that has so distinguished any pre Valoua year in the history of american football. One of your number has come within a single Yard of equating Tho the world s drop kicking record. We must separate these Gigantic personalities into two classes for one of Tho leading drop kickers of the year is Only a freshman playing upon his freshman team. Of Tho varsity players cd Aranco Parker of Dubuque College in Iowa take the drop kicking honors with a Field goal fifty two full Yards from Tho Cross bar. Separated from Parker by a single Yard is Eugene Vidal of the army who similarly scored from the 51 Yard line. Parker s goal was kicked against upper Iowa University while Vidal accomplished his feat against Maine. Dividing the Honor of second place with Vidal is Irving Wenig of morning Side College who also is cred ibid with a 61-Yard successful drop kick upon the next rung of Tho Field goal lad Der we meet the Premier place picker of the year David w. West of Colgate who shot a 50-Yard goal from placement across Syracuse Cross bar. Be foil you exhaust the pleasure of amazement do not forget our Lone fresh Man. Thin promising Young player before us with a Field goal scored from a. Drop kick against Western Normal of Iowa. He is George Gipp Captain of Tho freshman eleven of notre Dame and the length of his kick is the astounding Dis Tance of sixty two Yards. Only two Field in a surpassed this Brilliant performance. J. T. Haxall of Princeton in 1882, kicked a goal from placement against talc from the 66-Yard line and Mark Payne of Dakota Wes last fall shot a drop kick Over Northern Normal s bar from the 63-Yard line. Ony goal ties glop s performance. In 189 p. J. O Dea of Wisconsin kicked a goal from the Field against Northwest Ern from the 62-Yard line. Tie for most two players tie for the distinction of having kicked the most goals from the Field during the season. They Are John h. Meehan of Syracuse and j. Elwood Davis of Iowa. Their number of goals is Jeren and All were drop kicks. If Iowa takes Many More of these Federal foot Ball honors next year to preserve a National Competition we will have to bar out these Lowans. The place kickers already stated arc represented by Elmer q. Oliphant of the army and Ivan h. Grone of Kendall each with five Field goals the season a record in. Of the Art from the standpoint i m number of goals from the Field kicked in one game we find a Happy tie Between the East and West and be tween the drop and Tho place pickers for Fritz t. Shiverick of Cornell kicked three goals by drop kicks against Michi Gan and Ivan h. Grono this same irrepressible Grone of Kendall kicked three from placement against the Haskell indians. Boals from Placo kicks this autumn must be classed Tho multiple newly invented method of scoring goals from he Field emanating from the ingenious intellect of George p. Sanford coach at Rutgers. These Are kicked while the Ball is held by two players the Boll not touching the ground they Are possible through 5i definition of a goal from the Field. This definition has been in exist ence for More than forty years without to tiny loophole being discovered. Tho sole multiple kicker of the country is Homer Hazel of Rutgers and he has scored by this method five goals from the Field varying in length from Twenty five to forty five Yards. Among the ranters.
