As the country's grid teams apply
the pressure in their stretch drives
for nation-wide recognition, the cla-
mor and ballyhoofor prospective All-
American nominees is rising to a new
high in intensity.
As has become customary of re-
cent football campaigns, a plethora
of outstanding "rame" backfield men
have risen to national prominence.
Taking them by sections, here is a
review of the backs of 1939 who by
their gridiron feats have forged to
the front of the thousands of candi-
dates striving for a comon goal-
All-American selection.
THE EAST: After a rather disap-
pointing start, Fordham is experi-
encing an upward surge in her foot-
ball fortunes. Responsible for this
in large part is wiry ben Eshmont,
who has turned in superb, perform-
ances all season for the Rams from
his left halfback slot.
Continuing his football exploits of
last year, Francis Reagan, Penn-
sylvania's outstanding star, is once
again the spearhead of theQuaker
offense. Michigan will get a taste
of Reagan's triple-threat antics at
Philadelphia Saturday.
Close behind these standouts in the'
East are such talented performers as
Bill Hutchinson, Dartmouth's great
climax runner, Dick Cassiano, of
Pittsburgh, Dave Allerdice of Prince-
ton, Ed Boell. of N.Y.U., and Merle
Condit of Carnegie Tech.
THE SOUTH: Southern observers
are tabbing Tennessee's brilliant tail-
back, George Cafego, as the greatest
ever to perform in this section. The
driving, twisting, stabbing runs of
this blond Hungarian-American are
leading the nation's top team to an
apparently undefeated season.
Lanky Banks McFadden of Clem-
son is being acclaimed as the finest
halfback in the Tiger's football his-
tory and as one of the nation's best.
Pressing these stars are such other
outstanding backs as George McAfee,
Duke speedster, Sam Bartholomew
and Johnnie Butler of Tennessee and
Jim "Sweet" Lalanne and George
Stirnweiss of North Carolina.
THE MIDDLEWEST: Iowa's grid-
iron renaissance is attributable in
great part to durable Nile Kinnick's
remarkable 60 minute running, pass-
ing and kicking for the last five
Another versatile Midwestern back
of high caliber .is Paul Christman of
Missouri, while Michigan's high-scor-
