Bradley J. Johnson

Important Note – in the last 150-lb Lightweight printed program I have (1991)…a “J Metzger” was listed as the Captain of the team; and the correct team captain, Bradley J. Johnson, was not. 

J.H. Metzger was in fact a Captain, but apparently serving as an assistant!

If one looks closely at the photo roster on the 1957 page, as shown below; they can see where the mistake was made.

The online 2012 Sprint Football guide shows that this problem was “caught” after the 2011 guide, thus the benefits of online scrutiny!

Nevertheless, It is sad to think that the “first captain of the 150-lb, Lightweights, Football team” was not correctly identified and recognized all those many years in official publications.
