44 MIKE MORALES. Blocks well, runs aggressively and has good speed. Although only a sophomore he is more reliable than other halfbacks on defense but is still vulnerable to passing. Gained valuable experience on B squad last year, and he is more mature than most sophomores.
48 RICHARD MURTLAND. Army's best back, apart from Kyasky. Picks holes well and is big and fast enough to drive for extra yards. Defends well against both passing and running, a real work horse. He has been Army's most consistent back during the past three years.
11 DAVID BOURLAND. A good ball handler and a master faker, he took over from Kyasky at mid-season. He is Army's best passer, and his experience makes him a more able field general than Kyasky. Good defender against runs, not so good against passes. He is also a good runner.
42 BOB KYASKY. An exceptionally fast, agile runner who keeps his feet well. Must be covered on ride series; a good faker. When in doubt, tackle him. He is also a very fine pass receiver. Defensively, he is excellent on running plays, can be passed against, especially on running fakes, but recovers well with his great speed. He has saved several touchdowns on pursuit from behind.
ARMY'S JUMP PASS
This jump pass, demonstrated by the football manikins, takes advantage of the tendency of the defense to keep a very wary eye on Kyasky (42), Army's great runner. Bourland (11) moves to his right, fakes a handoff to Kyasky, who goes on in to block defensive left end and pull the defense in. The left half, Morales (44), swings wide on a fake to his right, then turns into a blocker. Right Halfback Murtland (48) runs down and out to pull the corner defensive back with him, and Right End Stephenson (65) cuts quickly across the line and to his left in front of the deep man. Bourland, after riding with Kyasky, drops back to find passing room behind his blockers, jumps, throws to Stephenson.
