W.E. Metzer
Third Team All-American

Nicknamed “Frog,” Metzger was Dan McGugin’s first great lineman, earning Third Team All-America recognition in 1910.

In 1909, Metzger was a sensation in the backfield, rushing for four scores to singlehandedly beat Mercer 28-0, before suffering a leg fracture.

In 1910, he moved to the line, anchoring a unit that helped produce a 8-0-1 record. On defense, he assisted a unit that allowed only eight points.

Metzger shared the spotlight with QB Ray Morrison in 1911. He played brilliantly, helping the Commodores to a 8-1 record.
