Lineman Richard T. Guidera '50, of Weld hall and Westbury, R. I., was elected captain of the inexperienced Freshman football squad which was defeated both by the rugged Holy Cross Jayvees and Andover in their only two outings of the season.
After putting his charges through a brisk workout yesterday afternoon, Coach Henry Lamar commented that his team was improving rapidly.
A firm emphasis was put on passing in yesterday's scrimmage pointing toward the Exeter game tomorrow. More back field juggling was necessary this week to compensate for the wave of injuries that has levelled the Yardling fullbacks.
On Monday, Lamar had placed Dana Estes in the number three back position only to have him injured in the first practice session. Don McCoy, however, is the only player who will definitely be inoperative Saturday. The other three backfield positions are currently being held down by Andy Cooper, Jim Merkle, and Frank Nolan.
