High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - October 18, 1925, High Point, North Carolina High Point Enterprise sunday october is 1925 pack v sports of All sorts through Edgren a eyes by Robert Edgren giant football line of past have been superseded by players with nimble legs and agile brains modern football has shifted the weight from the line to the Backfield. Many of the Best Back Field men in the country today would shave been playing in the line a few years ago and some of the mar centres and guards and tackles % of today would have stayed on the sidelines Twenty years ago. The Forward passing game and open play have made Speed and brains the chief qualities of men in the line As Well a behind it. Nobody Ever heard of a a proving Centre Quot in the Days of Heffelfinger Hickok Bucky Hall Glass Chadwick Cross Warner of Michigan and the rest of the old time giants in those Days the coaches combed the College for big men for the line and it did no to make much difference whether they were lean or fat fast or slow As Long As they were too heavy to push Over and had feet like anchors. Their Job was to push Forward like a steam roller and 1� stand like a Row or hitching posts when the other Fellows had the Ball and were trying to March Down the Field. I remember visiting Yale one Early season to see the football material line up and in uniform on the practice Field were two of the r heaviest and fattest men outside rare ump a circus. They were pointed out wit ii Awe As the most promising Centre Rush men discovered Iii years. As it happened neither made the team As it developed in the practice that if either happened to sit Down it took four or five men to hoist him to his feet again which delayed the game. But for this single failing they would have been very useful and some of the coaches even argued that they could be used sitting Down when the enemy was bucking the Centre. In a sitting position they would present an insurmountable obstacle and Stop any smash on Centre Ever devised. Even if they rolled Over they a Mam Phi up anything from a flying wedge to a straight Buck. Heffelfinger a a giant in size and strength some of the giants of other Days Are still famous and their names Are by Pugh up whenever old timers get together. The greatest of these was Heffelfinger of Yale six and a half. Feet tall weighing 230 pounds and without an ounce of soft flesh on his Gigantic body. Heffelfinger was a real athlete and his strength was tremendous. Ifs said that a a hello never was thrown Back by a charging line. He stood like a Rock above the pack of smaller men Alining around him. On the offence he was like a charging Buffalo after Heff left College he went to work for a while at Railroad building in the West. Here he bossed a gang of men laying rails. Hearing something of his football reputation they decided that he was a and one Day a dozen men jumped him at once to beat him up. Heff cleaned up the whole Hunch and drove them Back to work. Hickok was another great Yale 4iant. He was intercollegiate Barnier and shot Champion As Well As a football Otar and one of the fastest big men in football. Hickok could run a Hundred Yards very close to ten seconds in his football togs. Not All of the big linemen of ancient Days were slow. John r.

He was a greater hot Putter and Hammer thrower than Hickok. N it of course weight throwing form had improved by the time Dewitt came along. One of the Western huskies was Jack Munroe afterwards a fighter for a few years until knocked out by Jeffries. Munroe once made ti5 Yards against the California team in successive five Yard plunges straight through the line. De Glass of Yale was another football Plant and All around athlete and a very fast and wiry big Man. In the old Days the quarterback was usually a Skinny Little fellow who could Crouch Down be ii in i the Centre Call the plays and pass Tho Ball Back. He did t have much else to do. The half backs were picked entirely for their feared and their ability to Dodge through holes opened in the opposing line by toe big Beefy guards. Rough tactics of the past football was a crushing slugging game tinder the old rules and before the Forward passing open Field style of play came in. It was possible to pull off almost any kind of roughing when a whole team piled up on the runner the instant he was Down i remember one Western championship game in which eight men from each team were carried off the Field and two from each team were taken to the City Hospital with broken Bones. Before the tame the players of one team were told to cripple two of the fastest backs on the opposing Side As quickly As possible and the Captain of the other team gave his dressing room instructions concisely like this Quot we done to want any roughing boys but the moment it starts you know what to this was done to some extent in the More polite Eastern football circles. One of the greatest Eastern colleges some years ago had a Back who was the red Grange of his time a tall wiry fellow who could run like a Streak and was. A threat from the time the game started. A rival great College famous As a Centre of learning and culture had a negro player who could also run like a Streak and who had a very hard head shaped something like an Armor piercing Shell. The two colleges met in the game that was regarded in those Days As the one game that could be considered an american championship affair. When the first whistle blew and the Ball was kicked off the Dusky player broke away from the rest of the team and went Down the Field through the opposing team like a sprinter straight toward the other teams red Grange. Just As everyone was wondering what on Earth he was doing he reached his objective and without slackening Pace leaped head first into his Man and butted him squarely in the stomach. The old time red Grange was knocked so cold that he w As carried off the Field on a Blanket and he did no to come Back.
