The star fullback at Tait College, a small northeastern campus. Tom is a handsome, intelligent young man, whose expertise on the football field and whose personal charisma have made him the most popular man on campus.
An intensely studious young woman with no interest in football. Connie is a lovely coed who has energy and humor, but who is intent on her studies and not at all interested in campus frivolity and fads.
A good-humored, likeable football coach, who was a football star at Tait College a few years ago, before returning to coach the team. Not quite as trim as he was earlier, he is nevertheless an attractive, approachable guy, determined to finally see a Tait team beat their tradition rival, Colton.
An attractive professional woman, who has returned to her alma mater as the new professor of astronomy. Her looks haven't changed at all since her student days at Tait. She has a forthright, charming personality, but she is not easily swayed from the strong opinions she holds.
A vivacious flapper, easily in control of any situation she encounters.
A likeable wimp, the perennial thiurd-string substitute on the football team, desperate to be the "big man on campus."
The trainer for the Tait football team.
A hulking brute on the football team, with an I.Q. that is significantly lower than his body temperature.
A beautiful, wealthy coed who has always had everything she has ever wanted, including campus hero Tom Marlowe.
Two comic coeds, likeable sidekicks to Pat.
The ultimate freshman, eager to be a part of any important event on campus.
