Big enough to go inside and fast enough to go wide, it also has three kinds of passing to keep the defense from ganging up. Three touchdowns is its least per game.
Dave Bourland (6 ft., 185 lbs.) from El Paso. Solid all-round T quarterback. Fakes well and can throw but doesn't too often. Fast and tough enough to lead blocking on wide plays. Still lets receivers get behind him on long passes.
Bob Anderson (6 ft. 2 in., 200 lbs.) from Cocoa, Fla. Unusually big, strong first-year halfback who does not appear fast until the opposition is trying to catch him. Can throw running to right, a good receiver.
Pete Dawkins (6 ft. 1 in., 195 lbs.) from Royal Oak, Mich. Not quite as strong a runner as Anderson but makes up for it in speed. Throws left-handed pass on the run. Is very effective on the pitchout and quick opener through the middle.
Vince Barta (6 ft. 3 in., 205 lbs.) from Lakewood, Ohio. A power runner off tackle and straight ahead. Army will throw to him when he is flanked.
Harry Walters (5 ft. 10 in., 190 lbs.) from Cincinnati. Alternates with Barta at fullback and is same type of power runner. Will be used at times to rest quarterback on defense.
Army's line is a rock wall straight on, but it can be climbed or skirted. For its size, it moves well but may not have quite the speed shown in past years. It lacks Navy's reserve strength and may tire under pressure.
Don Usry (6 ft. 3 in., 210 lbs.) from Cleburne, Texas. A sound end and fine receiver. Defensively, plays the flank hard but teams have run to his outside. Rushes passer well, but also drops off neatly into flat.
