Correction—In a recent column, I identified Heisman trophy winner Gen. Pete Dawkins as the first split end (wideout) in college football when he played for Army before a distinguished and decorated military career.
Pete Dawkins was a running back. The "lonesome end," as the Army wideout was called, was Bill Carpenter who was later decorated for valor for callng in artillery on his own position during the Vietnam War to prevent his unit from being overrun.
