Rise on South Atlantic Grid
Iron Has Been Truly '
From the' moment Harry Costello
stepped on Forbes Field In Pittsburgh as
a representative of the Georgetown uni
versity football team In 110, until the
famous dropklck from the 17-yard line In
the last Virginia-Georgetown game, he
has been a spectacular and consistently
brilliant performer. It Is doubtful If
the Blue and Gray ever possessed a
more wonderful football player who Is
to lead the team In Its campaign In
At a meeting of the twenty football
letter men at Georgetown University
today Costello received the unanimous
vote of the players to captain the team
next season. There was no opposition
to Costello, and the popular player te
ceives a fitting tribute to his prowess
and record as a Blue and Gray star!
Costello's rise In the history of South
Atlantic football was as meteoric aa
that of any hero of college gridiron In
the usual stories found In magatlrics
Costello, however, came with a flash
and stayed until his performances have
attracted the attention ot the football
world and compelled recognition from
the solons of the game.
In 1910 Harry Costello came from
Merlden, Conn., where he had attended
the high school for four years. His
ability us a football player was about
equal to his reputation In track and
baseball, and It waa not until the game
with Virginia In U10, the first George
town win In a number of years, that
Costello's name became a byword In
the annals of football In this section of
the country.
Played Four Years.
While at Merlden, Costello'played four
years on the football and baseball
teams, and had fair ability aa a pole
vaulter. He played against Bacon, the
Wesleyan player whose work has at
tracted attention this season, and was
consistently able to outpoint the Massa
chusetts player. Costello also played
with Dunn, the Vale fullback.
Coming to Georgetown In 1910, he

One of the most peculiar starts In a
career on the gridiron, which has
proved to be unique, waa made by Cos
tello In his first game. He lasted Just
two minutes, receiving a sprained hand
which kept him out of the game until
Virginia was met In that never-to-be-forgotten
15 to 0 win. ..... .
It was this circumstance which kept
Costello out of the game until Vir
ginia was met. In this encounter with
the ancient rival, Costello sprang Into
prominence by scoring three drop kicks,
and earned the name of "Nine Point"
Costello. Since that game he has al
ways been In the limelight, never fall

For the past four years the sons of

meet and on only one occasion have the
men from the New Jersey Jungle been
al)le to ,,, lho victory from their New
Haven rivals. Every year, however, thu
race has been very close and though de
feated, the sons of old Nassau were far
from being disgraced.

promises to be much more successful

excepting 1912, when they won the meet
by three points, for, from the men who
have reported to Coach Mulligan during

that one of the strongest track teams
