A Matter of Geography. "18 Virginia in the South?" asks a reader. "If so. any judge that fails to jput Jimmy Leach, of V. M. I., on an i All-Southern eleven is worse than crazy. Leach was a better football I player than Flowers, of Georgia j Tech, or McMillan, of Centre. He was easily the greatest back in the South, unsurpassed anywhere. He could kick, pass, crash through a line or circle an end. In the nine games he played he scored 210 points, including twenty-six He carried the ball for 1,, 723 yards and hurled forward passes i for 48 yards. He made seven runs j from fifty to eighty-five yards, sevj eral against Pennsylvania. He is one I of the greatest broken field runners j the country has ever seen." Leach, of course, deserves a high place on any all-Southern team. It may be th^t he is fully as great a j back as any one in the East or West. I But this is Just a matter of gucssj ing. as most all-star selections are.
