Leo "Dutch" Meyer's tenure at Texas Christian University (1934-1952) brought the university many honors. His spread formation, in which he used the double wing with two split ends and two or three wingbacks, improved the college passing game. Meyer's 1938 squad won the National Championship after going 11-0 and defeating Carnegie Tech 15-7 in the 1939 Sugar Bowl. During his 19-year career, Meyer coached three Southwest Conference champions and 10 All-America players, including Sammy Baugh, Davey O'Brien, I.B. Hale, and Ki Aldrich. He compiled a 109-79-13 record and took TCU to seven bowl games. Meyer was inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame in 1957.
