Army Over Syracuse 9-6 Yankee Stadium

One of our Fullbacks (probably Ray) is going to Bust Somebody – Al Rushatz & Ray Paske ran this play several times with success. There is a clear image in my mind of Al, right in front of the Corps, getting tripped up at the line of scrimmage, dropping his free hand as he is nearly horizontal, regaining his balance and rumbling for more yardage.
