Photograph caption dated July 7, 1954 reads, "Bob Waterfield (left), renowned master of the 'T' formation quarterback spot, is shown here as he yesterday began instructing Paul Cameron, 1953 UCLA Bruin All-American tailback from Burbank, in the art of how to handle the ball in the 'T' which is strange to the versatile Cameron. Over the ball is Don Paul, great former Bruin who is a key man with the Los Angeles Rams. Cameron is to play with the Pittsburgh Steelers this season and must learn the 'T' to get on with them."
