If there is one particular chew
aeteristic in Dartmouth football It
is the drive and power of the back
field. A Dartmouth backfield al
ways runs hard and drives fa4.
Whore It h nst
Offensive football is riplly built
around the back fild, juSt as de
fensive football to built around the
play of the line. Of couros, no team
has an offense unless It gets eleven
men in every play. but without apt
driving backs, no offense can even
get started. The whole theory of
offensive football is for the backs
to get to the line ofscrimmage as
fast and as soon as possible.
The offensive line has to check
the initial charge of its op nfents.
The defense cn -use It. hands while
the offense cannot. If the offensive
line chargs her fast and hard.
knowing exact as they do where
the play goes, the defensive line
will be momentarily checked or
These conditioIs will only con
tinue for a moment. This is the
golden opportunity for the halfbatk.
At. this mgifrent the defensive line
is wavering; if the backs hit the
opening at this second they can
nake ground. If they delay an- in
Mant -the defensive line will - have
recovered it spolse and will drive In
on the man with the ball. If Dart
mouth excels in any particular point,
it is right here.
, I was talking to Jess Hawley, who
played such d slashing game at half
back on the Dartmouth teams of 1908
and '09. I asked him why it was that
tIhe Dartmouth backs had such drive
and dash. His answer was that, he
tliought the bucking strap was mainly
The Bucking Strap.
The bucking strap is a very simple
device used by the Dartmouth coaches
to develop drive and speed in the back
field. The strap consists of two heavy
pieces of leather attached to stout
wooden poles. The leather straps are
about sixteen Inches apart and about
two. yards Jong. There is.a leather
callar thoroughly 'padded In the mid
die of the straps. This.collar is about
large enough for the man to get his
head and shoulders in. The padding
absolutely prevents all chance sof in
Four players are then selected on
the field and one is put on each end
of the pole. A center, halfb.ck and
If necessary a quarterback line up in
front of the bucking machine so that
it represents about the distance the
back has to run to the line.
The ball is passed to the back. He
is coached to run at the strap as If he
was running at the line and put his
head in the hole just as he would a
hole in the line. When he does this.
the men holding the poles exert suffi
cient pressure to check the first
charge of the back. The back with
the ball must keep on driving and
pushing with his legs, 4he men on the
strap holding him back all the while.
It's Great Practice.
This is wonderful practice for the
backfield. In the first place ,the back
nust have his head about him or he
wil miss the hole entirely when he
drives at the strap, and in the secon,
*lace the back must keep driving afttr
he gets his hole or the fact that h
doesn't will be shown up in clear view

way to develop fast-runnng
backs. I am going to try it at Prince

Mond position usually on the strong
Before the Chicago game I didnti
resily think much of tne shift us an
offensive formation, hut since that
game I must admit I have become to
a .certain extent a convert to th~s
style of attack, especially when it *t
executed with the precision and drive
shown by the Maroon team.
The shift is very popular in the
West, and Dartmouth is probably
closer in touch with Western condi
tibnu than any other college in the
jst. The team seems naturally to
adapt itself to this style of play.
Robertson. the Dartmotzth fullbackt
and captain. is a wonde.rfui player,
pobably the best man on the team.
I doubt if there is another back with
the exception of Garrity. of Prince
ton, who can hit the line with the
egme force that he can. Hie weighs
about 190 pounds. is fast, big and
strbnug, and has every quallfication of
a great back. He is a good punter and
a ;whole team In himself.
Burke. one of Robertson's running
atiates, while not as good. is a very
dependaebleI player. Moore at tackli' Is
pfpbebly the best man on the iinr,
