SAM BROWN, LHB
A great runner with speed, lots of deception, marvelous balance. Passes fair, good punter, kicks off deep. Good pass defender but does not like to tackle.
BOB DAVENPORT, FB
Runs like a bull and fights for every inch; only gang tackling will stop him. Tackles viciously, a great blocker. Sub Doug Peters (26) almost in the same class.
JIM BROWN, RG
Probably best of a great UCLA line. So consistently good, he never appears spectacular. Has speed, leads plays, blocks hard. Charges hard, great on defense.
EARL MORRALL, QB
All-America and the hub of State's sharp offense. Brilliant ball handler and signal caller, better than average passer, superior punter and can quick-kick from the T.
WALT KOWALCZYK, RHB
Only a soph, he's one of the best running backs in the country. Big (200) and fast, he packs tremendous power and a lethal stiff-arm. Ran at 6.7 average for season.
NORMAN MASTERS, LT
All-America, State's best lineman. Weighs 230 and hits fast, has tremendous power. Very aggressive and above average on offense, stands out even more defensively.
