Prophecy Comes True Army-Navy Meet Saturday 4 COLLEGE PARK. Nov. 27, WV"He dosen'fhave the finesse of a seasoned college player, but give him time for that," said Maryland football Coach Jim Tatum of his sophomore back, Ed Modze.ewski, after the 1949 season. Modzelewski has had the time and today has proven the implied prophecy of his coach that he was due to stardom. Two qualified and neutral but not disinterested observers were the latest to confirm it watching Modzelewski and Maryland wind up their regular season undefeated against West Virginia Saturday. "If that Mighty Mo isn't All-America, there just shouldn't be any All-America," said Ike Peel who was scouting for Tennessee, Maryland's opponent in the Sugar Bowl. Rams Like Him i,u =r i, "Mighty Mo is tne Test fullback prospect I've seen this year, said Coach Joe Stydahar of tht Los Angeles Rams. He happened to be in nearby Washington for a game the next day with the Washington Redskins and West Virginia is his alma mater. v The week before, a scout for the New York Giants had expressed praise similar to Stydahar. However, the pros will have to wait awhile for Modzelewski. The 2^-year-old blonde bruiser from West Natrona, Pa., expects the Air Force to take up a prior option on his services after graduation. Peel and Stydahar saw the 210- pounder in action for less than three quarters. In that time, he was given the ball 14 times and gained 131 yards to make West Virginia the sixth opponent out of nine he has outrushed this season. Vs. Miami In Gator Bowl Gam« In addition to West Virginia, he piled up more rushing yards than Washington and Lee, George Washington, Missouri, Navy and North Carolina State. Maryland gained 138 yards rushing against Navy and Modzelewski got 127 of them fo. which he was named Associated Press back of the week. Has 7.3 Average While he failed to individually outgain Georgia, LSU and North Carolina, Modzelewski has gained more than all nine opponents combined, 834 to 680. His average i» 73 which assumes added luster because he's anything except a one-man team. Sixteen Maryland players besides himself have crossed the goal line, which he's done 11 times. Coach Tatum credits Modzelewski with making the whole Maryland offense go. "He's the hardest runner and the best blocker. When a handoff is faked to a him and he busts into the line, Mo then straightens up and knocks down the secondary backs to clear the way for the other ball carrier." Mo is a real line buster, but it's the speed with which he rushes his 210 pounds that is most surprising. For 30 yards, he's the fastest man on the Maryland squad and once through the line he travels like a scat back. Father Is Coal Miner In fact, Coach Taturn shifted him to the halfback after his first couple of games two years ago and then moved him back to fullback this season. He carried the ball 120 times for 589 yards in 1949, 107 for 470 last year which gives him a three-year total of 1.893 and a college career average of five yards per try. Modzelewski comes from a big family, m size and numbers, but modest in circumstances. His father has been a coal miner in their little steel town near Pittsburgh and Ed is the second eldest son of five children. Ed weighed 11 pounds at birth. A brother Dick, who is a junior tackle on the Maryland team and also of All-America caliber, beat that by two pounds and now goes 230. Their sister set a new family record five years ago--15 3 i pounds. An older brother boxed professionally until last October under the ring name of 'Joe Modzell. "We grew up on kolbasi (Polish sausage)," recalls Ed. Mighty Mo might have been playing on the other side for Tennessee in the New Year's Sugar Bowl. Peel recalled, somewhat sadly, he had visited Tennessee for five days after graduation from high school, but chose instead the scholarship offered by Maryland. He has no misgiving over that choice. After finishing the regular season last Saturday and realizing that football and college are about over for him, he said: "The greatest thing that has happened to me is the fact that next June 1 I will graduate from the best university in America." WEST POINT, N. Y., Nov. VI /p)--Col. Earl (Red; Blaik, coach of Army's crib-riddled Cadets, is reported preparing a spread forma, tion to flmg at Navy in the annual service game Saturday at Philadelphia. The Army coach declined, understandably, "today to discuss the potion' he is cooking up for the Middies but he did declare: "Navy has a big, strong ball club with wonderful personnel. It's not a team you can push around with straightaway football." Word from the Military Academy is that Army's board of strategy feels that if it is to have a chance against the f u t u r e admirals it must bank on the element of surprise--a few quick, long passes that may go all the way. The spread formation throws the wingbacks and ends wide and sends a whole swarm of possible receivers down the field. For this maneuver it is necessary to have a sure, level-headed thrower and the Army possesses such an athlete in Fred Meyers, the fledging quarterback. Meyers, a solid sender on a team wrecked by the summer exam- cribbing scandal, has completed 18 Of 45 passes this fall for a total of 263 yard- Navy has back 22 members of the squad that whipped one of Army's great elevens last year, 14-2. The Middies have shown surprising strength but inability to cash in on breaks, in winning only one game, tying one and losing six. Army's Tfecord is little better with two victories and six defeats. Never in the 61-year-old rivalry have the service teams met under such miserable circumstances. The game has lost such lustre that tickets have been been put on public sale. In the past it's taken a n order from the Supreme Court virtually to land a pair of ducats. The contest is not attractive enough to lure President Truman from his Florida vacation. Dignitaries planning to attend include former President Herbert Hoover, Deputy Secretary of Defense William C. Foster, Secretary of the Air Force Thomas K. Finletter, Secretary -of the- Army Frank Pace, Jr., Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Fred Vinson, Army Chief of Staff Gen. J. Lawton Collins and Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Hoyt S. Vandenberg. CLEMSON, S. C., Nov. S7 (/P-- Clernson College will meet Miami in th« January 1 Gator Bowl football game at Jacksonville, Fla.. despite th* failure of the Southern Conference to approve its participation in the bowl game. Dr. Lee Mllford, faculty chairman of athletics at Clemson, said in a statement today: "The Gator Bowl' committee of Jacksonville, Fla., has extended to the Clemson College Athletic Council, through our head coach and athletic director, Frank Howard, an official invitation for our football team to participate in a bowl game with the University of Miami on January 1. "At a called meeting of the Athletic Council, including our president, Dr. R. F. Poole, we discussed and considered the invitation and the results from all possible angles if we accepted. As a result of this meeting. I have asked the Southern Conference officially, and in th« usual way for its approval. "The Southern Conference did not approve .our request. This is the first time in the history of the Southern Conference that a member institution has been denied this privilege ... I have discussed this with our president, Dr. R. F. Poole. who in turn has consulted every member of the college board of trustees, and, upon our recommendation, they have given their hearty approval of our accepting the bowl bid. Terps Lead Loop In Four Departments MORGANTOWN, W. Va.. Nov. 27 A)--Maryland's powerful Terps, the nation's third ranked team who had to settle with Virginia Military for a tic for the Southern Conference 1951 football champion- sip, today led the loop in four statistical departments. The Terps took away the total defense lead from West Virjdnla with last Saturday's 54-7 victory over the Mountaineers. Coach Jim Tatum's club already was ahead in rushing delense and both total and rushing offense. VM1, which matched Maryland s string of five straight conference wins, is not ahead in any of the departments, although the K«ydets are second in total and passing offense. The Terps rolled up an average of 423.3 yards per game on total offense to lead VMI and Washington and Lee. Maryland's rushing offense mark of 322.9 yards per game topped W. L. anG Duke. Maryland's total defense figure was 230.7 yard* per game, topping Clemson and Duke. The Terps gave up only 75.6 yards per game on the ground, far better than Clemson and Wak'e Forest. The pass offense leaders is George Washington with 149 6 yards per game, followed by VMI and Wake Forest. W L took pass defense honors, allowing only 67 9 yards per game with Furman and Duke trailing. North Carolina averaged 39.7 yards per kick to nose out Virginia Tech and Duke for punting honors.
