Carl Henry Hageman Jr. '33, of Lorain, ohio, was unanimously elected to next year's football captainey following the team photograph yesterday afternoon at Notman's studio, and will succeed W. B. Wood, Jr. '32 as leader of the Crimson eleven. At the same time it was announced by the Harvard Athletic Association that Hamilton Young '33, of Newton, will be the manager of the 1932 eleven.
Hageman is 19 years of age, weighs 171 pounds, and stands 5 feet 10 inches tall. He prepared at Lorain High School, where he was a member of the football, basketball, baseball, and track teams. As guard on his freshman football team and captain of the 1933 first-year basketball five he began his successful carcer in these sports at Harvard. He received a major "II" award as an end on the University football squad of 1930. Last winter he won a minor letter as a regular player on the Harvard basketball team, and will probably hold a position on this year's quintet. The new football captain was elected vice-president of his class in 1930.
"A Fine Captain"
"Hageman has played fine football this fall," was the comment of Coach E. L. Casey '19, who will continue his work as Harvard's football mentor next year, "and I think he will make a fine captain, for he has shown ability and pluck throughout, a difficult season." It was Hageman who caught a long pass from Wood and carried the ball over the goal line to score the winning touchdown in the last minutes of the Dartmouth game, and earlier, in the first half, by blocking a Dartmouth try-for-point kick, he left open for Harvard a final one-point margin of victory. Continuing, Coach Casey said, "The new captain played especially well against Army, showing his speed in following up kicks and receiving passes and in his offensive game, although opposed by John Price, an unusually fast and heavy player. I was also very much pleased by his work in the Yale game. He is good on offense and defense, tackling and catching passes, and blocks as efficiently as a much heavier man, and has a fine knowledge of the game.
