MARYLAND

JIM TATUM has taken Maryland to a bowl game every other year since becoming head coach in 1947; his only loss was by 7-0 to Oklahoma in the 1954 Orange Bowl. In nine years his Terps have compiled a 73-14-4 record.

FRANK TAMBURELLO, ED VEREB, BOB PELLEGRINI (see opposite page).

FRED HAMILTON (40), fb: Only fair runner, weak blocker on option but protects passer well. Not a strong defensive back.

JACK HEALY (23), rhb: Sophomore, one of two very good right halfs. Good runner and best pass receiver in backfield. When used as flanker, they like to throw to him.

HOWARD DARE (21), rhb: Shares job with Healy. Very fast, dangerous breakaway runner and can throw—watch him on running pass to the left. Good defender.

FRED TULLAI (52), lg: Started season as third-string center, won starting guard job on offensive ability. Splits time with Gene Dyson (66) and George Kolarac (67).

JACK DAVIS (60), rg: This boy's good. Fastest lineman on team, mean and tough. Has very fast reactions; hard to block out.

AL WHARTON (77), It: Big and tough, blocks hard. Shares job with Ed Heuring (76), who is quicker, more aggressive on defense. May be team's weakest spot.
