Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

The Moun­taineers still count speed as a ma­jor as­set. Noel Devine, the 5-foot-8-inch, 180-pound se­nior tail­back, rushed for 1,465 yards last sea­son — av­er­ag­ing 6.1 a carry — and scored 13 touch­downs. Se­nior Jock San­ders, who lines up in the back­field or the slot, also is fleet. San­ders caught 72 passes last sea­son, when he rushed 35 times for 175 yards. His ver­sa­til­ity prompted coach Bill Ste­wart to say in the spring that San­ders was the best player on the team.
