Gilbert Steinke, defensive
backfield coach at T e x a s
A&M last season, has been
promoted to backfield coach
succeeding Dick Todd, who
resigned to take a similar job with
the pro Washington Redskins.
A&M’s coaching staff is now
complete except for a freshman
coach. Head coach Harry Stiteler
said a successor to. Coach Perron
Shoemaker, who has gone to the
University of Georgia as end coach,
may be on hand when the Aggies
begin Spring training Feb. 12.
Steinke, a little All-American
halfback at Texas A&I, played pro
football with the Philadelphia
Eagles. He was backfield coach at
Trinity University one year before
coaching the Oklahoma A&M
freshmen in 1949. Steinke divided
his time last year between the
varsity and freshman teams and
scouting for the Aggies.
Speaking of Todd’s resignation,
Stiteler said, “we surely hate to
see Dick drop out of collegiate foot
ball, but we’ve known for some
time he has considered quitting 1
coaching 1 entirely so he can de
vote all his time to ranching 1 and
farming. With his job with the
Redskins, he will now be free in
the Spring for his ranch work.”

by the Intramural Football Champ
ions, A QMC, as they battled to
the top this season.
The secret of the Supplymcn’s
success this year may be credited
to many things. Chiefly their vic
tories can be charged to a great
team spirit and an overwhelming
desire to win.
Although the, Suppliers had one
of the best break-away runners in
the league in the person of Bud
Yeager, not once during the entire
season did the QMC depend entire
ly upon, the talents of one man.
Each man in the backfield—Char
ley Bruchmiller, Frank Trahan,
and June Clark—took turns regu
larly in battering the opposing
June Clark, who called the plays
for the Supplymen, was one of
the best ball handlers in the busi
ness and perhaps the smartest sig
nal caller seen all season. Not
once did it seem that Clark was
hard-pressed by any situation his
team faced and always he seemed
to call the right play to meet the
Not to be overlooked is the firey
and spirited line that led the fast
charging backs. It is a well-known
fact that the backs gain the glory
and credit for a team’s victories
while the linemen take the hard-
knocks and bruises to open holes
and gain no recognition.
Jess Fletcher w r as the fire-
horse guard that opened the holes
for the offensive backs and plug
ged the gaps for the defensive line.
Fletcher was by no means the
QMC’s only lineman but he seemed
to spearhead the offensive and de
fensive lines and add the necessary
incentive for the big, bruising line
man to carry on the battle.
The ability to come from behind
and pull games out of the fire
was a characteristic of the QMC
company all year.
In the early season games the
Supplymen seemed to have little
trouble in defeating their oppon-
In the first four conference bas
ketball games, the Texas Aggies
have held their opponents to a 44.8-
point average. By comparison the
powerful Oklahoma A&M team’s
average for the season is 44.2.
