  • Quote: Fabulous Redmen - Coach Warner was once asked by a Carlisle Herald reporter to name an All-Time Carlisle Indian Team. According to the reporter, Warner’s choice for the position of fullback was Peter Hauser. Warner explained his selection by estimating the merits of each man.
  • Hauser: Great fullback and passer. Hauser, who sometimes is credited with having thrown the first spiral pass, would hit his ends on the dead run with uncanny accuracy. Pete Hauser was practically a replica of Jim Thorpe. He was as good as Jim in all sports except track.
