that even though he was only a sophomore his play was equal to that displayed by many if not all the veteran tackles of the Virginia teams. "Big Gene," as he was called, also possessed one of those educated toes about which we hear so much. He has the honor of being the only man on the team who played all of every game. Charlie Engers, one of the smallest men on the squad, held down an end in a way that would have brought joy to any coach's heart. He had the misfortune to injure his ankle during an afternoon scrimmage rather early in the season, but despite this mishap he played in practically every game. W. E. Boone was a mainstay in the line and his play at guard position would have satisfied any coach. .After the sixth game of the season, during one of the practice games, he had the misfortune of fracturing one of the veterbrae in his neck. He was unable to participate in any of the remaining games on the schedule. Nevertheless, Boone is not going to give up the game and he will be back as strong as ever for the nineteen thirty-two season. T. F. West, Jr., played an end with Charley Engers. West was one of the large men of the team and the largest of the ends. He saw regular service and started all but two of the games. He played either end, but he saw more action on the right side of the line than on the left. The last four men named, namely, Barnett, Engers, Boone, and West all are sophomores and will be back to carry on next year.

During the first half of the season he was quarterback, and although he had not h~d very much experience at this post, he carried on \Vtth the coolness and the surety of a veteran of three ?r. four seasons.
