MEN TO WATCH
12 JOE CALDWELL
6 FT., 160 LBS.
Has developed rapidly this season and is now a fine signal caller. Extremely accurate with passes of 15 to 20 yards. Is improving on his long tosses—as the Rice Owls found out. Although quick, he is too light for heavy duty as a ball carrier.
21 BOB ANDERSON
6 FT. 2 IN., 198 LBS.
A dependable, bulldozing rusher who is usually called on to make the first down. Hard to stop through the line and tough to catch when he is in the open. He is a capable passer and receiver. Throws well on option plays run to the right side.
61 BOB NOVOGRATZ
6 FT. 2 IN., 210 LBS.
Combines his size with good speed and is a savage tackier who ranks among the top guards in college football. Has exceptionally fast lateral movement. He is the only returning lineman who started against Midshipmen in last year's classic.
87 BILL CARPENTER
6 FT. 2 IN., 205 LBS.
The Cadets' famed Lonesome George—the end who seldom enters the huddle. His height, sure hands and surprising speed have helped make him one of the finest wingmen in the nation. His main value in flanking wide is to spread the defense.
PLAY TO WATCH
Run-pass option shown here has Left Halfback Bob Anderson taking pitchout from Quarterback Joe Caldwell (12). Fullback Harry Walters (33) and Caldwell give Anderson protection as he looks for receivers. Wingback (right halfback) Pete Dawkins (24) goes short, cuts right. End Bill Carpenter (87) goes long, giving Anderson two targets. Left End Don Usry (89) swings right to give defense an added problem and Anderson another possible open man. If all receivers are covered, Anderson keeps the ball and circles the end, with Caldwell leading the interference. Against Pitt this play once left Anderson plenty of running room on the Panthers' seven-yard line. However, he spotted Usry untended by the goal post. He passed, Usry caught, Army scored.
