THE DOPE: The Engineers had a fine season in 1955 and, with the same team returning practically intact, they promise to be even stronger this year. Coach Bill Leckonby will have to find a replacement for All-East Tackle Bill Doremus, but he has a raft of lettermen to choose from. The real strength of the team lies in the offensive backfield where Halfback Bob Naylor and Quarterback Dan Nolan give the Engineers a formidable one-two punch. Naylor is already being touted for All-East honors, but there is widespread feeling on the Bethlehem campus that Nolan is actually the better player. That is an argument that fails to bother Coach Leckonby. The only thing that keeps him awake nights is the Engineers' lack of additional speed in the backfield. But Nolan and Naylor last year-ran up 1,579 yards between them and, with that kind of attack, Lehigh can afford to hurt a little at the other two backfield positions.
