Grilling Practice given Razorbacks

Coach Pickering seeks to Prepare His Team for Game with Hendrix

October 6, 1913

FAYETTEVILLE – The 23 Razorbacks who reported for practice today were put through a grueling scrimmage.

G. A. Vincenheller, star quarterback of the Arkansas team of 1899, took charge of the second team today. He will develop the offensive playing of the scrubs in order that the first team may get practice on defense.

Coach Headrick of Hendrix saw the Arkansas-Henderson game last Friday and no doubt will prepare for the Razorbacks’ attack. However, it is rumored that Coach E.T. Pickering has several surprises for the Conway bunch.

Dan Estes and E.M. Ratcliffe, both first team tackles, were out of practice today on account of injuries. Ford Dubs and Moore played their positions. A.A. Poff, fullback on last year’s eleven, who has been playing guard this year, was at fullback today. With a little practice he should get back in form. Harry Bryan, substitute guard on the 1912 team, reported from practice this afternoon. Coach Vincenheller played Hill at right guard. Night blackboard practice was started again tonight.
