“ Who was Hie best halfback? In my
opinion,” says a New York football ex­
pert, “ Osgood of the Pennsylvania
team back in 1^94 was in n class by
himself. At least lie never has been

lieve. Osgood played at Cornell before
be joined the Quakers, who were projc-
tically invincible with such stars as
George Brooke, Carl Williams. Wood­
ruff, Wharton ami others.
“ I remember the Pennsylvania-Har­
vard game of ’04, In which Osgood
made several sensational plays, includ­
ing a run the whole length o f the field,
lie caught the ball on the kick-off be­
hind his own goal line and with im
pregnable interference he went through
the whole Harvard team for a touch­
down. Osgood was a ten second man
and an all around athlete. lie was
killed in the Spanish war."

Coach’s New Football Play May Revo-
Jutioni^o AM Kinds of Kicking.
George Foster Sanford, football sur­
geon and inventive genius of the grid­
iron, lias evolved another wrinkle. In­
cidentally the secret o f his visit to-
Pennsylvania a short time ago is out,
for it was to teach Boh Colwell's dis­
ciples the knack o f a new trick.
Sanfoi'd and Fohvell belong to the
new thought school of football, in
which the old conservatism lias a!>out
as much standing as the old mass play
has in the 1910code. They areas thick
as peas in n pod and always let each
other in on their gridiron secrets.
Sanford's latest invention is dubbed
by him the multiple kick, but it isn’ t
anything like that. It's only one kick,
but the play requires the services o f
the center, the quarterback and the
other three backs, so that tlie multiple
part refers to the handling o f the pig­
skin. It's a trick that may revolution­
ize the kicking feature o f football* but
as yet it is a rather hazardous stunt
at best and In some inarters* might
he classed in tlie category of "shoe
string” plays.
Here's how it works— when it does
work. From a kick formation the half­
backs lie down on the ground, facing
each other. Bight above them stands
the quarterin'.! k, ready to receive the
ball front tlie center. Several paces
behind the quarterback is the fullback,
i’ iie pass is made, the quarterback
[»laces the hall in the bands o f the
halfbacks, they | ut it in position for
the kick, and the fullback proceeds to
boot the pigskin into the next county.
It is very easy to see how farreach-
ing the effects o f this play might be
and wtint a tremendous bearing it has
on punting and the kicking o f place­
ment goals. Itutgers has worked the
play for kicks which went for seventy
yards, particularly in tile tie with
Washington and Leo. Bill Quigley of
Pennsylvania has kicked several goal»
from thi> fifty-five yard mark with the
aid o f the multiple play, and Derr.
Light and Berry have hid almost
equal success.
The play requires a stone wall line,
and the development o f first class lino
men is sort o f second nature with San­
ford. He may show, through It's Rut­
gers team, that his newest play is the
real goods. It was Sanfonl who evolv­
ed the legal mass play, which the rules
committee recently had to declare in
keeping with the spirit and the letter
o f the code. The new kicking play
on paper sounds like a remarkable
stunt, and it may iu reality prove to
l»e one.
