man to be selected by Camp for the
It is a matter .of pride to Michigan
that one of her players should be so
far superior to eastern fullbacks, with
years of professional coaching in
high-priced prep schools behind them,
as to be placed in a premier position
in his freshman year. Michigan men
know that Steketee deserves the hon-
or, and students of all classes rejoice
with him. Steketee is to be particu-
larly congratulated because there was
no dearth of first-class material from
which to choose. Mr. Camp says that
college football material this year was
as good as ever.
But while we do honor to Steketee,
the place-kick will be a failure. The
guards, the tackles, the ends and the
halfbacks must hold their men; if one
fails the place-kicker cannot make a
But Steketee's companions did not
fail. Each contributed his utmost to
the good of the whole. That is the
spirit of Michigan. And it gives every
member of the team as good a right
to be proud of Steketee's recognition
by Mr. Camp as Steketee himself. In
honoring Steketee we are honoring the

Some of them, to Michigan men, will
seem as much entitled to official All-
American recognition as Steketee. To
use one example out of several possi-
ble ones, Mr. Camp placed Usher, of
Syracuse, as tackle on his first team.

Leaving aside questions of individ-

Steketee was named premier fullback
because of his place-kicking ability,
primarily. Now neither Steketee, nor
any other man, could place-kick un-
less he had the wholehearted and
capable support of his entire team. It
takes time to get off a successful place-
kick, and the team as a whole must
battle for the few seconds' freedom
that the place-kicker has. The cent-

an inch of accuracy. That takes cool
ness and gameness and endurance be-
yond praise on the part of the center.
The qiarterback must do his share in
placing the ball, and if there is an iota
