CHUCK CURTIS, QB
This big (6 foot 4 inch) junior is a very slick ball handler and has developed into an accurate passer and smart signal caller. Slow, not good as a runner or on defense.
JIM SWINK, LHB
All-America and may be the best running back in country. Has speed, power, balance and remarkable ability to make tacklers miss. An open-field terror; fine receiver.
HUGH PITTS, C
No. 1 man in line, will give Ole Miss lots of trouble. Very strong, aggressive and quick-reacting. Great play diagnostician and linebacker. Terrific blocker, sure tackler.
EAGLE DAY, QB
Extremely fast and a very good runner on Mississippi's quick, wide quarterback sweep. Would rather throw, however, and is a deadly passer. Steady, aggressive.
PAIGE COTHREN, FB
Big enough at 195 and with the speed needed to be a very fine off-tackle power runner or to sprint around end. Devastating blocker, kicks points and field goals.
BILLY KINARD, RHB
Member of famous Ole Missfootballfamily. Bruising runner with very good speed, elusiveness; blocks hard, a standout on defense. Probably the team's best receiver.
