Simpson: "It might be said that he exhibits a rare facility for observing and threading the interstices of the opponents' defensive line, employing every artifice and demonstrating superlative equilibrium at the approach, rendering himself compact and thoroughly elusive at the moment of passage into the secondary, and then accelerating in his chosen direction with such a burst of velocity and seeming abandon at the faintest indication of an unobstructed field that the antagonist is left, as it were, without recourse."
