Ed Oldham (27), left half, 177. Fine sophomore back, equally good on offense or defense. Has speed, effective in open field, hard to bring down. Tackles well, covers on passes.
Dick Guest (30), fullback, 180. Was good last year and has improved. Hits hard, has strong leg drive, likes to run between tackles. Backs up line, plays corner man.
Vince Monto (38), fullback, 203. Not as polished a runner as Guest but bigger and stronger. Doesn't pick holes too well, likes to try to run over tacklers.
Chet Burchett (24), right half, 162. Not big, but fast and tough, can go all the way. Blocks very well on pass plays, also good receiver. Tackles hard. Can pass on him.
(80), left end, 190. All-America last year, looks like cinch to repeat. Even better on offense with more maneuverability; great receiver, strong blocker. On defense particularly tough to inside, covers outside well.
(77), left tackle, 209. Team captain and one of best linemen in country. Has speed, size, agility. Gains against his position negligible all season. Very good blocker. Can be blocked on quick plays; hard to move out on delays. Jaw injured in practice last week but expected to be ready to play.
Vernon Dander (63), left guard, 190. Was regular last year until hurt, has shared position with Mohn this season. Plays over center on defense, can be handled.
Bill Mohn (66), left guard, 197. Shares position with Dander, has played more since Penn game. Equal ability on defense but has shown some offensive weakness.
Wilson Whitmire (58), center, 198. One of country's best centers, should have a great duel with Szvetecz. Crisp tackler, excellent linebacker, diagnoses plays well. Blocks hard. Outstanding leader on field.
Tony Stremic (61), right guard, 202. Sophomore but a regular all season. Tough, hits hard, quick and agile. Linebacker on defense, likes contact, likes to tackle.
