Gantt's was right end, from
which he operated as well on defense as
he did on offense. Gantt did all the
place-kicking, usually kicking the ball
into the end zone on the kick-off and
booting 26 out of 31 conversions.
All America Tackles: Captain Dick
Wildung in his senior year was unanimous choice as tackle on the All America
first team. He led a Gopher team that
did not fare so well as usual but Dick
was said by many to be the greatest
tackle of all time. His giant 210-pound
frame was always present on both defense
and offense. He was chosen most valuable by his team, and played in the EastWest game.
Al Wistert of Michigan staged a fine
comeback this year and was chosen the
lineman of the year by Chicago's Wailing
Wall club. He is rugged and sixty
minute player in the fine Wolverine
line. He was vastly improved on defensive play this season. The "Ox" made
most All Americas this year and was a
regular on the East All Star team. He
upheld the tradition set by brother,
Whitey Wistert, Michigan '34.
Guards of High Caliber: Robert Kolesar, senior guard at Michigan, was a star
in every game. This was his third year
as a regular, in one of the game's strongest forward walls. Bob was almost lost
because he found it difficult to keep up
his dental studies and play football. However, he managed admirably and made
many All Western teams.
Captain Orville Johnson, S.M.U., came
up the hard way. He hit the Pony corral
