Did you know?

When discussing the college football players of the 1930's, Dutch once

said, "Some of the football players I've seen around here ought to get full

sized mirrors and powder puffs.  There's only about 12 minutes of actual play

in a college game.  After about and hour and a half of play for three years they

all want to write a book or get into the movies."

He is known for playing college football for many different teams.  In 1914, he

supposedly played for Indiana University, 1915 for Duke University under the name

Hendricks and then at Drake University under the name Henderson.

He appeared in many movies during the 1930's and 1940's.  However, most were

'uncredited' rolls.
