Saul Charles Weislow
Weislow, a center at the University of Chicago for three seasons in the mid-1920s, was team captain in 1928. Prior to the 1928 season, famed sports writer Walter Eckersall wrote a feature on Weislow for the Chicago Tribune and stated, "Weislow has been one of the most dependable...the last two years. He is aggressive and fairly fast...He is not the type of player whose work will be handicapped by the burdens of the captaincy. On the contrary, he will set an example for his teammates."
