"A blocking force with the efficiency and downfield fierceness of a guard is Dan McGrew, the 23-year-old Martins Ferry (Ohio) phys ed instructor who was drafted originally by the Lions. Dan's long snaps are easy to handle and constantly on target for the punter and the place kicker."

"What's his nickname? Why Dangerous Dan, naturally. And that's just what he is- a dangerous, devastating blocker.
This veteran of Big Ten football has a burst of speed rare in so big a man. His snap backs are strong and accurate, so vital on punt and point-after-touchdown attempts.
In the off-season, he's a qualified physical education instructor for the State of Ohio."
