WATCH FOR: Paul Fitzgerald, G; Bob Novelli, T; Jack Leach, B; Dick Gourley, E.
THE DOPE: The Rams, Under Herb Maack, their new head coach, are a sound ball club, but they are scarcely likely to soar to the giddy heights of last year's undefeated season. One of the bulwarks of New England is the Rhode Island defensive line, which is fast, aggressive and tough. With Captain Paul Fitzgerald at the key middle guard post, and Bob Novelli and Dick Gourley lending their experience at tackle and end respectively, the Rams will be just as hard to move as they were in 1955. The prospects are for a lot of low-scoring games with the Rams winning most of them.
1956 SCHEDULE (1955 score):
Sept 22—Northeastern (13-13)
COLORS: Pale blue and white.
BASIC OFFENSE: Wing T.
1955 RECORD: Won 5, lost 1, tied 1.
