Date of Birth



Columbus, GA


Georgia Tech (1915-1917)


As Georgia Tech fans filed into Grant Field on October 7, 1916, little did they know they were about to witness one of football's most historic games. Tech would demolish Cumberland, 222-0, in college football's worst defeat, an abbreviated contest in which junior halfback "Ev" Strupper would score eight touchdowns in an individual display of running excellence. Four of Strupper's TDs were charted in the first quarter, when Tech rolled to a 63-0 lead. He scored again in the second quarter and three more times in the third period as the score mounted to an unbelievable 173-0. Coach John Heisman called off his Tech regulars long before the game was eventually halted after just 44 minutes of play. Strupper was named a first-team All-America garnering consensus All-America honors in 1917. During Strupper's three-year varsity career, the Yellow Jackets rolled to a 24-0-2 tally. The 7-0-1 squad of 1915 battled rival Georgia to a scoreless deadlock, and the 8-0-1 club of 1916 was matched, 7-7, by Washington & Lee. In those 26 games, Tech out-scored the opposition 1135-61.
