Dutch was an outstanding guard on the Bensalem Football team. When it was third and short, Van Horn would often rely on "Porky" Oliver to get the first down with a quarter back sneak.  Dutch, Mervin Walter and I would agree which direction we would push, and Porky followed.  Dutch was a great teammate and a much better student than the rest of us.  RIP, Dutch.
