1920s Vanderbilt Commodores Football and a Hello

Hi there. I'm a Gator fan first, but a Vandy fan second. My great grandfather piloted you fellows at quarterback from 1920-1923, his final year being the last time the 'Dores won a conference in football, and the year before his last being perhaps the best Vandy ever had. His three years of starting for the Commodores, 1921-1923, and his three years in high school at Montgomery Bell Academy, yield a combined record of 39-3-3. All three years were conference titles for Vanderbilt. He was also on the basketball and baseball teams, and it seems baseball may have been his best sport.

I am working my way towards writing wiki articles for the football squads of 1920 through 1924, with a good deal of work done on 1921 to 1922. I was hoping to post those two here for any edits or comments which might improve them, and maybe for some entertainment in the offseason out of Vandy's real fans for a bit of history. If Vandy can take out Tennessee for the third year in a row, it will be the first time such a streak happened since the days when my great grandfather got one started.
