But I.think the greatest plnyer • I ever coached was Gibby Welch. I •. - * * * ' He had all the qualities a grea halfback needs. - He was a brilliant-.runner and a splendid passer.:./. He dazzled with his speed and dash. '..He weighed around 180 and • physically was like a" Greek god.-' ' . , Welch called signals, and his own ability to run with the ball under pressure saved many plays. On defense he showed marvelous . discernment ol the plays our opponents were about to use. And he was a deadly tackier. Twice during his last year at Pitt—that vas 1927, the year he was captain—he ran back touchdowns trom klckofls, each ' lime shaking off tacklers who seemed siSre 'to stop him. •-.But more than these physl'Ml qualities was his strength due. to his inspiration, courage, ambltbn : and Jove tor the game. He was one of the finest spirits I. have been associated with in this'work. • His .-last game: in 1327—it wis against.. Penn Stntc—is memoranle to'-me.
