For Carolina, the rushing of
Moore and Baird and the all-round
play of Gregory deserve mention
while the whole team tackled well.
For Richmond College, Frazer,
Binford and Lloyd played much the
best game. We are glad to say
that the game was entirely free
from kicking or other unpleasant
ness, and we hope that our pleasant
relations with Richmond College
will remain intact.
Below will be found a critisim
singly and generally of the players
in last Saturday's game with Rich
" Stanley kicked too slowly, starts
and .runs too slowly and always
looked at place where play was go
ing as soon as signal was given.
Tackled an'd kicked fairly well," but
after kicking does not start down
field quick enough.
Nicklin starts and runs too slow
ly, tackles too easily and gets mix-'
ed up in line too much on defensive
work. Always gives plays a way by;
looking where ball is going. Slows!
up when he hits the line.
. Moore starts slowly but runs
hard, gives plays away by change
of position and looking where play
is going. , -Does , not block well on
Whitaker passes, ball too slowly
and too hard, apt to get in way of
runner when passing : the ball and
when giving . signals hesitates too
much between numbers.
" Stephens, On end runs trvies to
circle opposing e"nds too much, miss
es tackles by not getting directly
in front of his man and hits the
liuetoo high at times, starts quick,
runs and tackles hard.
Haywood starts and runs too
slowly, went at the line too slowly
and tackles very poorly.
Gregory does not keep the inter
ference away from him enough but
allows it to get close enough to hold
him without detection and at times
gets mixed up so much with the in
terference that he allows man to go
around him. When his side kicks,
he does not get down field quickly
enough and does not back opposing
ends on opponent's kick. Does not
look after work of team on field
closely enough nor make men work
enough in the games.
Wright does not start quickly
or run hard enough with the ball,
never blocks kick, tackles hard and
blocks opposing end well.
Hurly runs and starts too slowly
with the ball and when interfering
for runner pays too much at
tention to runner instead of blocking
opponents and at times i.s undecided
as to what to do.
While snaps very poorly at times,
allows opponent to break through
him. Too slow in his playing.
Carson allowed man to charge
him back, played too high, did : no
tackling, followed ball poorly.
Baird when running with ball
changes position, shoufd block more
kicks and should try harder to get
runner after breaking up interfer
ence. Merritt on kick does not get close
enough to opposing back who catch
es the ball, specially when ball is
kicked to opposite side of field and
on short kick often overruns the
ball. Holds too much in boxing
General crithm. Center men
should play lower after getting on
their knees. End rushers do not
get down field on their own kick or
block well on opponent's kick. Tack
les seem to think that they have
done their duty when they have
broken interference but should get
man. Backs start and run .too
slowly and give plays away 5 by
changing positions and looking
where they are going before ball is
put in play. The men do not fol
low ball closely enough nor help
the runner after he. has been thrown
by taking ball from him, helping
him to his . feet or dragging him
along. Fullback takes too long in
kicking and must put men on side
quicker. Quarterback should give
signals without hesitation for this
is the secret of the backs and the
line men starting and running to
gether. He must also get out of
way of runner. The team has - im
proved in defensive work but offen
sive work is still poor.
. Some time ago all oi the classes
elected captains and managers for
their respective class foot-ball
teams, much interest was manifest
ed and great results expected, but
the enthusiasm seems to have died
out as suddenly' as that of a moon
light serenader when he feels a
bucket of cold water descend upon
him from a second-story window.
The Sophs have done fairly well,
but the others have done nothing
--not even made the slightest pre
tence of practicing. Last year was
the first time we have had regularly
organized class teams, a nd every
one can see the good that was ac
complished by them; there are men'
who will play on the 'Varsity this
year who never would have played
foot-ball at all but for the class
teams that year; there is certainly
no better way of bringing to light
new material and getting men in
terested in the game, and it is with
much regret that we notice the
present lack of interest in the class
The greatest drawback to foot
ball in the South is that a man
knows nothing of the game until he
enters college, the preparatory
schools as a rule do not have teams,
and we have to make a 'Varsity
player in one or two years out of a
man who never saw a foot-ball be
fore in his life. Until we have a
different kind of preparatory school,
the class team is the only remedy
for this misfortune and it is to be.
hoped that we will not fail to take
advantage of it.
