O'Shaugnessy Sparks
Grid1, Wrestling Teams


Alpha Delts Win, 21-20 SCORED TD THAT BEAT IOWA:
P. Knutson Standout on Offense, Defense
C1 _rT I _

Dick O'Shaughnessy, 21-year-{
old captain of the 1953 Wolverine
football team, had been one of
Michigan's mainstays until his re-
cent ankle injury, sustained in a
scrimmage two weeks ago.
The husky senior from Seaford,
N. Y., has held down the center
position since his sophomore year,
and before this season was able to
outperform any other candidate
for the center post. This year, how-
ever, with the single platoon sys-
tem being employed throughout
the country, he has run up against
some stiff competition ir the per-
son of Sophomore John Morrow.
THE LACK of defensive exper-
ience has hampered O'Shaughnes-
sy, but with dogged determination
and extensive drills on defensive
maneuvers, he has thus far held
his own.
In his sophomore year,
O'Shaughnessy played 267 min-
utes in nine games, and last
year the 5-11, 190 pound Irish-
man played 251 minutes. In his!
two years with the Maize and
Blue, he has never made a bad
pass from center. Tpe single
wing formation which Michigan+
employs almost exclusively, de-I
mands a quick, accurate pass,
and O'Shaughnessy has always
been dependable on both counts.+
It was O'Shaughnessy's wrest-+
ling prowess that brought him to+
Michigan, but his unusual pig-1

skin ability soon won him more
acclaim. In wrestling, he copped
the Michigan State AAU crown in
the 175-pound ,division his fresh-
man year. He won the Big Ten
177-pound title two years in suc-
cession and will undoubtedly be
gunning for another title this win-
O'SHAUGHNESSY is a leader,
but in addition he is noted for be-
ing a team man., and his hustling
spirit has contributed considerably
to the team morale. A dilligent
worker, he is constantly trying to
find ways of improvement, never
satisfied until he knows he has
done his very best.
Wrestling has been an aid to
his football sharpness, according
to O'Shaughnessy. He attributes
keener reflexes and improved
blocking to wrestling. The soft-,
spoken athlete who is majoring in,
education, lets his performances
on the gridiron and mat speak for
themselves, and well he might, for,
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan can well
be proud of the smiling Irishman's
football feats.
Perhaps O'Shaughnessy's great-s
est attribute is his desire for im-]
provement which he displays in7
practice sessions during the week.J
It is rare indeed when an opposing
defenseman breaks through the7
center of . the line where Dick
O'Shaughnessy is leading the
brunt of the blocking.

In Playoffs
Alpha Delta Phi edged Phi Gam-
ma Delta 21-20 in overtime yes-
terday to win its way into the
quarter finals of the social fra-
ternity touch football league.
The Alpha Delts took an early
lead when Roger Mulier hit Har-
ry MacCallum with two touch-
down passes. Mulier ran for one
of the extra points and threw to
MacCallum for another. A short
time later, the Alpha Delts add-
ed another score as George Ham-
mond passed to Paul Goebel.
THE PHI GAMS came to life
as Pete Paulus passed to Howie
Liverance for the TD and to Bob
Knutson for the extra point. A
few plays later, the same combi-
nation scored again to give the
Phi Gams fourteen points.
Paulus then threw the pass
that tied the score to Roy Pel-
la. The Phi Gams missed the ex-
tra point and Alpha Delta Phi
gained more yardage in the ov-
ertime to win.
In a bitterly fought contest,
Sigma Alpha Mu trounced Pi
Lambda Phi, 25-0, in the other'
playoff tilt. Warren Wertheimer'sI
passing magic was responsible for1
all the scoring as he hit Tom Ko-
van, Larry Pearlman, Paul Rich-
man and Irv Toboman with TD 1
THE TWO EXTRA points came
after the second and fourth touch-1
downs as he threw to Kovan and
Tobacman respectively. The vic-
tory moved the Sammies into thet
semi-final round.
Triangle downed Zeta Psi,
13-0, in another hard foughtf
contest. Ralph Kroy dashed
over from the Zeta Psi two-yard
line and Paul Anderson passed
to Harry Anderson for the oth-
er Triangle tally. The extra,
point was made by the same
passing duo.
Sigma Phi Epsilon beat Alpha
Sigma Phi, 18-6, as Bill Adams
tossed to Tom Sexworth and Don
Hanley for two touchdowns and
pitched out to Stan Goldner who
ran around end for the other. Al-

he is a man to be reckoned with onI
Ss offense as well as defense.f
The Iowa game two weeks ago
was an epoch in "Knut's" careen
Late in the last quarter with Mich-
igan trailing 13-7, Knutson slip-
ped into a corner of the end zone
to receive the pass from Duncs
McDonald which spelled victory
for the Wolverines. This was
Knut's first scoring contribution

total of 153 yards and one touch-
lown in the four games played
this season. his isn't bad for a
guy who was supposed to be pri-
marily a defensive performer.
Knut's defensive skill earned
him wide recognition last season in
the Big Ten and throughout the!
country. Playing in all nine gamesI
for a total of 230 minutes, his1
slashing end play proved to be a
tower of strength in the Wolver-
ines frustrated bid for the Big
Ten championship.

ATHLETIC honors, however, are
not new to Gene Knutson. As a
high school perrormer in Beloit,]
Wisconsin, he competed in foot-;
ball, basketball, track, and in the
summer, pitched for a champion-
ship baseball team.;
Football and basketball were;
his big sports however. In hisa
senior year he was selected for It

All-State honors in both sports.
Knutson's final year was also
the scene of his only venture
into non-athletic pursuits. In
it he was elected president of
the Senior Class.
As a freshman football player at
Michigan, Knutson received a rude
jolt in spring training when he
broke a bone in his ankle.
IN HIS sophomore year, the 220-
pounder got into five games for
a total of 88 minutes, mostly as a
defensive linebacker. This was
only a beginning.
Since coming to Michigan,
Knutson has found time for other
activities. Besides majoring in
physical education and playing
football, he is a member of Sig-
ma Chi fraternity, Sphinx hono-
rary for men, and Michigauma.
He is also the president of "M"
Club this year.

Michigan's unbeaten football

yesterday in preparation for its,
third Big Ten opponent, Minne-

Wolverine offensive maneuv-
ers received another coat of
polish by the usual variety of
backfield combinations. A large
assortment of plays from both
the single-wing and the T-for-
mation were run during a dum-
my scrimmage.
Linemen were treated to a break
in the monotonous blocking drills
when line, coach Jack Blott put!
them through a short session of
picking up fumbles.
The Wolverines, though unde-
feated, have shown serious weak-
nesses in their last two games, and
Oosterbaan is holding long and
tough practice sessions to iron out
the wrinkles before the big games.
