About this time of the year all
coast selections become as preva
lent as fallen autumn leaves, so it
seems logical that mine should be
added to the gathering pile.
However, to be chosen on my
all-coast team will mean some
thing. I am giving an award to
each of the players who are named
to it. In other words, each of the
football players who are named in
this column to my team will re
ceive more than just possible
glory to be derived from the se
This award is in the form of a
free admission to the dunking of
four Oregon gridders next Mon
day. I feel that if several all
coasters are on hand, I will be in a
more favorable position when it
comes to tossing Dick Ashcom,
Marsh Stenstrom, Elliott Wilson,
and Jim Harris in the race. They
lost to Cal, so they pay the pen
But to get on to the selections,
the team has four good punters,
two exceptional place-kickers, and
three outstanding passers. The
backfield has no blocking back, but
if Stanford’s T formation were
used this would not be necessary.
Ends—Jay MacDowell of Wash
ington and Johnny Lcovich of Ore
gon State. These two arc rated the
best defensive ends on the coast
and both are good pass-snaggers.
Second choices: Dick Horne of
Oregon and A1 Krueger of USC.
Tackles—Jim Stuart of Oregon
and Vic Sears of Oregon State.
They arc clearly the standouts in
the line. Bob de Lauer of USC and
Bob Reinhard of California are
Guards — Ray Frankowski of
Washington and Leonard Younce
of Oregon State. Younce is our
place-kicker de-luxe. Both are
fast, aggressive, and good defen
sive men. We place Ben Sohn of
USC and Chuck Taylor of Stan
ford on the second team.
Center—Rudy Mucha of Wash
ington. He'll be on all-American
teams, so he must be good enough
for our all-coast selection. Ed
Dempsey of USC conics next.
Quarterback — Frankie Albert
of Stanford. He’s our best punter
and a good passer. When it comes
to carrying the ball, he’s there,
too. He calls the plays and is re
placed by Oregon’s Chet Haliski.
Left Half—Bill Sewell of Wash
