' WITH DICK PETERS
Three years ago Penn State grid
fans had difficulty keeping their
scdre sheets straight. It seems
there were two Lion players who
bore the same name, Johnny Pat
rick. Both Johnnies were backs.
Both tipped the scales at near 185
and stood about the same distnce
above the grass of NeW Beaver
Perhaps a few State fans breath
ed a sigh of relief when the first
Johnny graduated, because now
they could keep .them straight.
There was only one in the lineup.
So maybe that's why Johnny
Patrick, Jr. was lost in the hustle
and bustle of the past• two years
though he played every game.
Maybe the reason he was lost was
because he was a blocking back.
Blocking backs haye that idiosyrr
Today, however, the second
Johnny is recognized as the player
of the week in the Philadelphia
district, taking over the spot held
last week by Frank Reagan of
Curiously enough, Johnny gain
•ed his honor by virtue of his splen
did signal-calling in the Temple
game, somethiFig which few foot
ball fans ever think of unless the
play•:caller chooses the wrong one.
You might say that when a
player is honored for calling sig
nals correctly, and for his block
ing ability, he must have been out
standing. We certainly agree with
the lads - who honored our Johnny.

Maxwell Trophy For Outstandi
Backfield Grid Star Will
Receive Award On Monday
Johnny Patrick, unsung hero
and guiding force of the undefeat
ed Penn State football team has
been awarded the Maxwell Mem
orial Club trophy for his brilliant
performance in the Lions' victory
-over Temple, Bert Bell, president
of the club, announced yesterday.
The award, 'presented to the
player-of-the-week, is based on
the selection of Philadelphia foot
ball coaches and sports writers.
Patrick will leave for Philadel
phia on Monday along with Coach
Bob Higgins to receive the trophy
at a banquet at the Warwick Hotel.
Frank Reagan, Penn's high scor
ing halfback was the last recipient
of the award.
In winning one of the highest
honors bestowed upon a Lion grid
der In recent years, the hard block
ing sen,ior quarterback is finally
gaining recognition for his out
standing playing do State teams of
the past three years. Patrick's
brilliant football career' was cli
maxed by his outstanding per
formance in the Owl tilt as Phila
delphia sport writers accorded full
praise to Johnny's almost flawless
signal calling and murderous
A substitute to Sammy Donato
in his sophomore year, Patrick
came into his oWn in the '39 Buck
nell game and besides starting
every battle since, has performed
iron man duty in each one. He
never carries the ball himself but
paves the way for Petrella, Peters,
and other •backs.
He has crashed into the scoring
column several times, however,
with his accurate placement kick
ing. It was his 25-yard field goal
and extra/ point conversion that
gave the Lions the necessary mar
gin for a 17-13 win over West
Virginia. His successful field goals
in the Penn and Pitt games last
year will be remembered by Lion
In addition to gridiron achieve
ments, Patrick is also a varsity
letter winner on the boxing team.

'With the bad news that Alex
Bourgerie, second best Lion har
rier, might be out of action this
year because his pulled tendon has
failed to respond to treatment,
Coach Chick Werner finds that he
has a few unexpected possibilities
in Vern Kotz and Bill Burkhart.
This harrier pair has suddenly
swung into top-notch form in the
past week's workouts, and they
show good promise •in filling the
shoes of Herm Goffberg and Max
Peters, injured varsity men who
resumed harrier practice this week.
