Winthrop Puts Four on Crimson All-House Football Team As Dudley, Kirkland, Lowell Each Get Two, Dunster One
Daughaday, Puritan End, Named To Captaincy of All-Star Eleven
The hustle and bustle of the regular House football season is over, including the match between the champions, Winthrop's Puritans, and the Yale College victors, and so the CRIMSON ventures for the second straight year to pick a first and a second all-House team.
Hammy Daughaday, Winthrop's star left and, gets the post of captain of the squad. Hammy's play was not sensational, but he was responsible in large part for the Puritan record of holding their seven. House opponents to two points while his teammates were scoring 74. A bulwark on defense week after week, his efficient blocking added much to the power of the highly touted Winthrop backfield.
Five Puritans on Squad
Three of Daughaday's teammates finished on the first team along with two Commuters, two Deacons, two Bellboys, and a Funster. Another Puritan ended up on the second team, as did two men each from Dudley and Eliot, and one from Lowell, Kirkland, Leverett, Dunster, and Adams.
At the other end post was Mel Avergun of Dudley, whose specialty all through the year was snagging passes out of the hands of the men who were theoretically defending him.
Two Bellboy Tackles
Lowell House contributed both the tackles to the team in the stalwart forms of Dean Morse and Mac Thurston. Morse's chunky 180 pounds and his powerful drive kept him in opposing backfields all through the season, while tall, rangy Thurston, captain of the Bellboys, was responsible for keeping his side of the line effectually plugged up.
Sam Binnian of Winthrop and Dave Grey of Kirkland get the guard nominations. Binnian played his second year of starring football for the champions, while Grey, the outstanding player on the Deacon team, gained a reputation for bottling up opposition backfields before they got started.
Hammy Smith of Winthrop holds a slight edge on Jerry Hall of Kirkland for the center position on the team on account of his sensational backing up of the line.
In the backfield this year there was a large quantity of starring material to choose from. George Varn, Dunster; Murray Helpern, Dudley; George Dreher, Winthrop; and Roy Moore, Kirkland, were the four picked from an outstanding crop, with Bill Tyng, Joe Peden, Bob Russell, and Dick Lewis, representing Leverett, Winthrop, Eliot, and Lowell as runners-up.
Other outstanding backs of the year were Bob Fulton of Winthrop, Chuck Griffith of Kirkland, Don Brew of Eliot, Hugh Harwood of Dunster, Vint Freedley of Leverett, Johnny Felmeth of Lowell, and Jack Bronston of the Dormitory team.
Johnny Felmeth, most sensational punter to show up during the season, was denied a place on the team because injuries twice forced him to the sidelines, and he only played in three of Lowell's seven games.
