Kickoffs 200 0 Yds Lost from Scrimmage 15 Passes Of Pivot, Brains Of Pilot Run Team Says Spaulding BY BILL SPAULDING Head Coach, U. O. L. A LOS ANGELES,—: have been asked which are the two most Important positions on a foolbal! learn That's just about the toughest task a fooball coach can undertake, for all positions on a squad are important. However, two players stand out .. in my mind as those having most 'I lo do with success of a team. These are the cenler and the quarterback. The center is the pivot man on every football maneuver. He passes the ball that starls lhe play, and while passing he is unable lo prolecl himself. He has lo absorb more unavoidable punishment than any other man on the team, and while he is absorbing jt he i la s little opportunity to pay bnck in kind. ., Tf the center's pass is Inaccurate, lhe entire, play, is ruined before il gets started. No matter how sfrcnuous tlie going, no matter hosv much he yearns to devote a liltle personal attention to'the fellow who opposes him In the line of scrimmage, tlie center oh offense inusl give his entire and complete atlenlion lo passing that ball. There are many fy]ics of passes (o be injide during the course of One halfback may want lhe ball lo hang; In the air so (hat 'ie caii pick it up on the run. while inollier may want it snapped 'like bullet straight lo his waist. The fullback may have a tendency to run too high. The center, realizing this, may correct this fault by throwing the ball a trifls loiver. On punts the bail must arrive perfectly for the kicker lo get off his boat with the icasl possible de-lay. •". cfnter must be careful not to tip the play by the slightest gesture. If he so much as moves his head,or twists his eyes toward the back to whom lie intends passing tile ball, 'the surprise element of the play may be lost completely. I don't know of a single man on i football team who has more and tougher duties and responsibilities nan'the center. : Oil,defense he still is the, busiest man on the field. He has to know how, when, and where lo rove. He is in there backing up the line vherc th'e going'its toughest. He : has , to be agile, as well as powerful.''- Passes' arc his meat—or should ibe. He takes it coming and going. 1 I "have seen some great centers in my years of 'Iwalchlng foolball. Here are a tew who stand out: 'Germany" -sennit?., Jock Blott and Chuck Bernard of Michigan; Boles Rcseiithal, of Minnesota; "Shorty" DesJardicn,' Chicago; "Babe" Horrell,- California; Lee Coals, last year's cenler at U. C. L. A., and Red Christie, present snapper-back at California. The next most important position on a football team Is that of juartcrback. He is just as impor- :ant to the learn as a rudder Is lo o boat. If a quarterback culls lhe Play poorly and the center passes poorly, the team is ruined before it starls. The quarterback nuisl be a leader who radiales and inspires confidence and flghling spirit. He engineers the offensive drives, scents weak spots in the opposition, and directs all play lo inn neuver his team into slralcgical positions. He is tlie brains of the team on lhe field of play. He must impart to the team what the coaches have imparted to him, and he imparts this information under far more difficult conditions than those faced by lhe coach. It's one thing to draw diagrams on a blackboard'during skull practice, and somelh'ing else to keep your head when a lot, of huskies arc handling lhe "lecturer" roughly. * * * . Mention of great quarterbacks would be incomplete If the name of Walter Eckersall, tl le mighty mite of Chicago, were not at the head of, the list. Wally Steffen, also of Chicago, comes close lo lhe lop. Benny Friedman and Harry Newman of Michigan will do. A great field administrator who almost never carried the ball, but did plenty olherwUe, was Charlie Erb of California. Fletcher of Illinois, Drury/Molilcr and Warburton of southern California, Tnd Jones of Yale, cliarby Uaiy of Harvard and West Point, Ho McMillin of Ccnlre, Stuhldrehcr and Carldco of Notre Dame— all illuslrale my pjlnt that n good quarterback makes a good learn. Football archives are full of lie- roes of tlie gridiron, not all quarterbacks' and centers, either. But. v.-illimit Die center nnd tlie quarterback. there would be no fiiat- hall, let alone fooibnll heroes! 2 4 •I 30 1209 Fumbles Fumbles (Rcc) Yds of Penalties Gain Nlylhcvillc Scoring I'ls.
