o1)homrore speed lrelhant Billy Taylor shows his heels to the once-mighty Ohio State Buckeyes. After starter Glenn Doughty was
injur ed in the ichigan State name, Taylor sparked the Wolverine offense to five straight wins, often electrifying the crowds with
ling runs f"oni :scrimmage.

The Wolverine defensive unit, one of the stingiest in the Big Ten, overwhelms Vander-
bilt fullback Allan Spear. Featuring Henry "the Great Pumpkin" Hill at middle guard,
the Michigan defense allowed a mere 12 points per game.

The unbiquitous Maize-and-Blue defenders engulf MSU halfback Don highsmith, who ran for 129
yards against Michigan in leading the Spartans to a 23-12 decision. It was the Wolverines' sole loss
in the conference this year.

Junior Quarterback Don Moorhead, who played in Dennis
Brown's shadow last season, came into his own in the
1969 campaign. With total offense figures of 1699 yards,
Aloorhead rate s one of the most productive quarter-
backs in Wolverine history. Above, he moves back into the
pocket to throw, protected by Garvie "Iron Lan" Craw.
Craw, who has never lost an inch as a ball carrier, scored
13 touchdovwns this year, to lead the team in scoring.

"We are going to the Rose Bo (is Big Ten co-champions, and don't you
forget jit!"

Glenn Doughty, another sophomore speedster, opened the season like
gangbusters, rambling for 531 yards in the first five games. Moving
behind the solid interference of the likes of guard Frank Titus, Doughty
seemed headed for a record-breaking season as a ball-carrier, until he
was sidelined with an ankle injury midway through the campaign. He
came back late in the year, however, and will be ready for USC and the
Rose Bowl.
