SAE, DU, Tau Delts Gain Impressive Wins

StrongBackfeld Aids Gridders


Last Saturday's game - type
scrimmage, was one event that
helped reveal this depth. Eddie
Hood, Jack Strobel, and Jim Ward
all drew heavy praise from Coach
Bump Elliott.
In addition two sophomores:
Bruce McLenna and Harvey Chap-
man, are also moving ahead.
"Hood's biggest asset is quick-
ness," said backfield coach Hank
Fonde, "he has real fine decep-
tion and uses it to make up for
what he lacks in speed."

In last Saturday's scrimmage,
Hood and teammate Strobel were
called on to fill the gap left by
the injured McRae. Strobel scored
one tally for the victorious Blues,
while Hood ripped off gains of 14
and 16 yards in a scoring march.
Strobel Fast
"Strobel has fine speed and is
a hard runner," praised Fonde,
"we plan to use him more on de-
fense than anything else."
Ward, who incurred a knee in-
jury last season, scored a touch-
down in the Saturday scrimmage.
"Jim is a bigger boy," said
Fonde, "he goes about 198 lbs.;
he's steady and is a good all
around football player."
The two sophomores, McLenna
and Chapman, are considered by
Fonde as well as Elliott to be two
up-and-coming football players.
"Chapman has made quite a
lot of progress," said Fonde,
"since this is his first year, he
probably won't get to play too
much, but you never know when,
you need a fellow like him."
"McLenna is a real big guy,"
continued Fonde, "and next to
Tunnicliff he is our biggest back."
McLenna weighs 215 lbs. and is
6'4" tall.
"He has all the qualities that
you look for. He has reasonably,
good speed, he blocks, and tackles

sive drills yesterday in prepara-
tion for their opener against
The red team, quarterbacked by
Bill Dougall, went through their

tion, the same formation that the
UCLANs will use against Michi-
gan Saturday.
Elliott was pleased by the prog-
ress shown in yesterday's prac-
tice. "The boys are showing some
real good spirit; a lot of the care-
lessness displayed last Saturday
seems to have been erased."

Elliott has also decided about
what he plans on doing about the
fullback situation. "Tunnicliff

back and Tureaud will start on

more Colts said today rookie half-

in his backfield this year. Other reserve backs who have been
impressive in practice and in scrimmages are Jack Strobel, Jim
