WILLIAM & MARY

WATCH FOR: Walt Brodie, E; Charles Sidwell, B; Tom Secules, B.
THE DOPE: The Indians have the offense but no line to hold down the opposition score, so expect a strong running attack that will switch to the air lanes when necessary. William and Mary is as loaded in the back-field this year as it has been at any time since the days of the great Jack Cloud, but heavy losses at tackle and center have left the Indian line riddled and weak. The most exciting player fielded by Coach Jack Freeman will most certainly be Halfback Charlie Sidwell, only a junior but already drafted by the Cleveland Browns through a peculiarity in the rules covering the pros' priorities. William and Mary may not win any crowns this year, but it is fighting back toward a high spot in collegiate football under Freeman; for "example, among 28 freshmen footballers, only three are under 6 feet and only five under 200 pounds.
1956 SCHEDULE (1955 score):
