W. W. (Woody) HAYES has coached the Buckeyes to 25 wins, nine losses and two ties in four seasons. His Rose Bowl team gives Ohio State its first undefeated season since Carroll Widdoes' Big Ten champions of 1944.
DAVE LEGGETT, HOWARD CASSADY, HUBERT BOBO (see opposite page).
BOB WATKINS (No. 45), rhb: Fine power runner with great speed. Led team in scoring with nine TDs, best on off-tackle, traps and dives. Weak on defense.
BOB THORNTON (55), c: Average linebacker, stronger vs. passes than runs. Has a tendency to get too tight in the line on close yardage situations.
JOHN BORTON (20), qb: Spells Leggett but hasn't played much in 1954. Likes to pass on fourth down. A poor runner on the keep. No. 2 punter behind Bobo.
JIM PARKER (62), lg: Powerful on straight-ahead blocking. Fast, but can be fooled when play goes around him.
JIM REICHENBACH (63), rg: Best offensive lineman, especially on traps. Plays head on the center on defense, quick on plays to his right or left.
DICK HILINSKI (70), lt: Good tackle and moves well for his size. May tire. Strong on defense straight ahead. Poor reaction to his right or left.
FRANCIS MACHINSKY (79), rt: Best pass rusher, excellent blocker. Will often charge high and slide. Can be trapped.
