Career highlights and awards

Lawrence Herbert "Dutch" Dupont (December 22, 1891[1] – April 5, 1955) was a college football player. He was a prominent quarterback for the LSU Tigers of Louisiana State University from 1910 to 1913. He was elected to the LSU Hall of Fame in 1937.[2] James Dwyer used Tom Dutton for a "kangaroo play" in which Dupont would crawl between Dutton's legs; supposedly very effective in short yardage situations.[3] He graduated from Western Military Academy.[4] Dupont never came off the field.[5] He had 15 touchdowns in 1913, four of them coming on November 22 in a game against rival Tulane in a 40–0 victory.[6][7]
