COMMENTS:
  • "Hudson, one of the best players ever seen on any football field." His greatest asset was his ability to drop kick with unerring accuracy from 30 and 40 yards.
  • Small in stature 56" and weighing only 130 lbs. he was a giant on the gridiron. He quarterbacked the team through three victories in one week, defeating Illinois 23-6, Cincinnati 10-0, and Ohio State 20-12.
  • In the "unbelievable" Penn game of 1897, Frank Hudson established himself as the greatest drop kicker in the nation. He kicked two perfect drop kicks to win the game. A week previous he defeated Yale by the same method.
  • On December 27, 1896 Carlisle played and defeated Wisconsin, in what is known as the first game under electric light.
