i for-1 for-1 Zor-etski to FLOURNOY BEST KICKER; HUBERT THE CLEVEREST FIELD GENERAL That's Why Norman E. Brown Picked Them for All - Americans Here's Brown's All-Southern. All-Southern. All-Southern. By NORMAN E. BROWN Enough funs paid me the pretty compliment of being interested in my choices for the various all-star all-star all-star elevens elevens this fall that I rushed my Ail-American Ail-American Ail-American team aheal of the last of the sectional ones for their benefit. Hut those who bold allegianeo to or are interested in the doings of tbe southern colleges will be as interested in today's mythical eleven as they were In the A 11-American. 11-American. 11-American. Here are my All-Southern All-Southern All-Southern selec- selec- (inns ENDS Lowe, of Tennessee. Thompson, of Georgia. TACKLES Holland, of Virginia. Luckie, of Georgia. GUARDS Levy, of Tulane. Dismukes, of Alabama. CENTER Pool, of Georgia Tech. QUARTER Hubert, of Alabama. HALFBACKS Fuolrnoy, of Tulane, Jones, of Florida. FULLBACK. Wyckoff. of Georgia Toth. The South last season offered for the inspection of the football world tWd"6T the 'greatest backflolds ever produced in that section. The two were Priestly Flornoy, halfback of Tulane University, and Hubert, quar- quar- tflH)ack ot ul0 Alabama eleven which won the southern collegiate cham-. cham-. cham-. pionship. Hubert is without a doubt the best field general the South has ever produced. produced. Flotirnoy is the greatest punter and drop kicker. .... These tw:o men stood out in a season season which was productive of an unusual unusual number of good, almost great backfleld men. Wycoff simply repeated repeated Ills great work of past season. Jones demands recogntiion for Florida. Florida. In addition to the four men mentioned mentioned one might select four more from such men as: Lautenschlager (Flournoy's teammate), Maurer, or Oglethorpe; Wilson, of Washington and Lee; Brown, of Aiamaba; White, of Virginia Military Institute, and Reese, of Vauderblll. The line play of these southern colleges colleges produced some brilliant players players also. Probably the outstanding of these stars are Tool, Georgia Tech's j '-enter, '-enter, '-enter, and Luckio, Georgia U. tackle. On a second team to represent the South I would select: Ends: Ollinger, Auburn; Tilghman, Furman. Tackles: Rivers, Vanderbilt; Carpenter, Carpenter, Georgia Tech. Guards: Goodwin, Georgia Tech; Blackledge, Tulane. Center: Wilson, Tulane. Quarter: Lautenschlager, Tulane. Halfbacks: Maurer, Oglethorpe; Wilson, Washington and Lee. Fullback: Devin, North Carolina. Gordon W. Chambers, leading football football critic of the South, to whom I am indebted for help in placing these players, winds up a cheerful letter of comment on the past season with the remark that: "The South has arrived in football and it will be a long time before Northwestern nad folks up that way forget the Tulane victory over the conquerors of Michigan and the Georgia Georgia Tech victory over the Penn Staters, Staters, both games being played on the loser's fields."
