UMass Football History--Scans of the 1975 UMass Press Guide

I've added 9 scans of pages from the 1975 UMass press guide to the UMass History section of the Blog.

1975 was quite a year for Minutemen football. College Hall-of-Fame coach Dick MacPherson was head coach.

UMass finished 8-2: 4-1 in the Yankee Conference.

Ned Deane and Ed McAleney were Captains.

Four members of the 1975 team were First-Team All-Americans at some time in their careers. This was before FCS when there was only one division. In addition to Deane and McAleney, Ron Harris (1976) and Kevin Cummings (1977) went on to be First Team All-Americans.

Dave Croasdale CB, Ned Dean OG, Ron Harris S, Rich Jessamy RB, Gary Little DE, Ed McAleney DT, Brian McNally QB, Ross Schubarth OG and John Toner LB were First-Team All-Yankee Conference that year.
