Lewis Hardage
Third Team All-American

After transferring from Auburn to enter Dental School, Hardage was part of what observers called the Commodores’ “fastest backfield.”

Hardage starred on tremendous squads. As captain in 1911-12, he helped Vanderbilt go 16-2-1 overall, and their opponents 578-27.

Hardage earned Third Team All-America and All-Southern Conference recognition as a senior.

Hardage dominated several games in 1912, scoring 95 points for the squad that was the nation’s top scoring team.

He also was a chief factor in a pair of early season blowouts, 105-0 over Bethel and 100-0 against Maryville. The total against Bethel remains a team record.
