(A't— George Wooricn, Oklahoma A&M end, who failed to catch a pass the lust two seasons, leads the nation In pass receiving for 1951, statistics by the NCAA service bureau showed today. Wooden moved to the head of the class by snaring eight passes ngainst Detroit last. Saturday. This boosted his output to 28 caught and Increased his yardage gained to 365. Dewey McConnell. Wyoming and Fred Snyder, Loyola (Calif.) are tied for second with 37 each. The Aggie end got his hands on the ball only once In 1048 and was smeared for a 12 yard loss on a" end-around play. Last year he caught three passes but they were thrown by the opposition. Wooden has caught at lenst two passes In every game this season nnd twice has snared eight in a game. If Wooden should finish on top the Aggie would become the first team to boast a pass-receiving leader three times. Neil Armstrong performed the feat twice for the Ag- gies and Reid Moseley of Georgia led in 1943 and 1944. The statistics also reveal Bobby Wilson of Alabama as the major- college punting leader. Wilson has averaged 43.4 yards on 34 punts. Joe Bevcre of Drake is second with an average punts. of 43.0 yards on 33 Robinson Defends Dressen, S0ys He's a Good Manager BAIf ANTONIO. TM..
