Dick Abernathy
First Team All-American

Abernathy earned All-America honors as an end in 1928, helping the ‘Dores to an 8-2 record.

Abernathy had a key 38-yard touchdown catch that enabled the Commodores to defeat visiting Colgate, 12-7.

A week later in Dallas, Abernathy blocked a punt that was recovered in the end zone which would stand up to be the winning score in the Commodores’ 13-12 win over Texas.
