By John Red Davis
(Chairman All-Southern Board)
The Leesburg Ledger
Friday, December 14, 1934



Lake City, Dec. 8.-The sixteenth annual All-Southern prep squad is the most colorful in history and the
competition was the keenest, it was made known here this week by members of the advisory board, after
a compilation of 40 votes filed by coaches and writers throughout the State.

Seven players stood in the front ranks above all others but the board is confined to only four All-South
selections and for this reason, the board voted, honors should go to Saul Wolfson, brilliant Andrew
Jackson end; Bruce Reed, Clearwater's rampaging halfback; Norman Pate, Miami's triple threat star, and
Fonia Pennington, stellar end on the strong Leesburg Yellow Jacket squad.

The big seven in Florida scholastic circle, votes form the State disclosed, were Wolfson, Pate, Reed,
Pennington, Williamson, Lake City's giant fullback, Watson Ramsey, Jackson's great tackle and John
Crabtree, of Palm Beach. They ran ahead of a field of 33 contestants.


















Two Star Tackles.

In the balloting the "big seven" had a tremendous following in and outside their own individual conference.
Ramsey and Crabtree ran for ahead of all tackles while Williamson received practically every ballot for
fullback.

Others leading behind the big seven included Bobby Travis, Robert E. Lee; Seymour Robinson, Miami;
Curry Brady, Leesburg; Vern Goodbread, St. Petersburg; Vernon Atkinson, Leon; Knox Eldridge; Miami
and Louis Rosenblatt, Jackson.

Although only a junior, Jackson's 190-pound Wolfson was described as virtually ready for college football
right now by board members who saw him in action. He was the big star in what was perhaps the
strongest high school forward wall in the State. He played a hard aggressive game all season that won
the unstinted praise of friend and of alike. He was a unanimous choice for an end post on the composite
All-Big Ten Conference team.

Norman Pate, Miami's triple threat star, swept the East Coast among those forwarding ballots to the
board. Pate starred in all of his major contests and the Stingarees met and defeated all comers except
Tech High and Boys' High of Atlanta.
