Walter Eckersall, the Chicagjo Tri-
bune's great football critic, writing in
_ the Sunday issue of his paper, recall-,
ed the brilliant career of Albert Bei-
brook, Michigan's greatest guard, wlro
is now a first lieutenant stationed at
Camp Zachary Taylor.l
Benbrook, of the engineering class!
of 1911, was captain of the 1910 foot-I
ball team and for two years universal
choice of the eastern critics for the
mythical All-American eleven. Few me
men have had a more glorious career
on the gridiron than the big guard.
Eckersall claims that he hgs never
seen a better guard in action.
Coming out for the Varsity in the
fall of 1908 for the first time, Ben-
brook earned himself a place on
Yost's team because of :his natural
football intutition. lie weighed some-
thing like 220 pounds that first year
and for his size was remarkably fast,
but that fall the open play game came
into its own and Yost wasn't look-:
ing for beef, as much as for quickness,
and ability to get over the ground.
Yost Trains. Benb-ook
At the beginning of Benbrook's sec-
ond year, Coach Yost realizing the
amount of football brains that the+
,big fellow posses.sed, and having no-
ticed his mistake's of the previous fall
took him in hau.d and every night the
two went over the plays together with
pencil and paper. The following sea-
son showed th(.3 result.
During the Michigan-Pennsylvania.
game at Phi'iadelphia, Benbrook first
came to the attention of the big east-
ern authorities on the game. Neither
of the te.ams were particularly good,:
but as ;they were closely matched a+
good fight was expected. The Pennsy'
game 'was straight football, bucking
the line and because of it they fearedI
the Michigaji. guard and an attempt k
was made to build up an offense(

Ii 7t the second half, Pennsylvania was
p et ialized many times for grabbing the
h us.ky guard's legs. The game result-
ed in a win for the Maize and Blue,
b y tle score of 12 to 6.
Tht Minnesota game of the same
Sear ;swas a repetition of .the Pennsy
game. 'Tshe odds were on the Gophers
:for thev had beaten Chicago badly a
tshort tii ne before while Michigan had
tonly ;.he victory over Pennsylvania
to hei' cl-edit. The Minnesota coach
was aho . afraid of Benbrook, for his
principi e g ame was straight football,
too, and an attempt was made to build
up an o fenmse to hold Benbrook. It
took the big guard but 10 minutes aft-
er the so und of the whistle to solve
a way of getting around the Gopher
:offense ant 1 from then on he was the
principle f. jrtor in the game. The
victory whi c ' was finally won by the
.score of 15 t O 6 can be accounted for
in the block tug that Benbrook did
-which alloweI,. Magidsohn, one of
:Michigan's gre at&s't backs to romp, to
.a touchdown.
Capf i ii' ill 1910
The followin g year the big guard
'was captain. Th le tean lost most of its
veterans and a n entirelY .new eleven

was the last played by the two teams.
Again, as the year .before, the betting
favored the Gophers, who had prac-
tically the same team as in 1909. That
game Benbrook made 22 flying tackles
and the result was a win by one touch-
down for Michigan. This game con-
cluded the football career of one of
Ann Abror's greatest players.
The following spring Benbrook
graduated and began to practice his
profession of engineering. When the'
war broke out the big fellow entered
the second officers' training camp at
Sheridan and got his commission. It
is thought that he will soon be on his
way across. It is assured that the
Germans will get a touch of the fam-
ous Michigan fighting spirit when he
reaches the front line trenches.
