John Garrity

John Garrity was the team captain and a receiver for A&M.

Texas A&M was expected to put up a winning season in Charley Moran's sixth season. With backs John Rollins and Tyree Bell, the team had a formidable offense. In the opener, the team blew out Austin College 32-0 behind two touchdowns from Bell and a touchdown catch from John Garrity. They got out to a 2-0 start with a win over TCU. The Aggies were surprised by Trinity in a scoreless tie. A&M fumbled twice near the Trinity goal line. A fumble for a touchdown resulted in a 10-0 loss to Haskell in Dallas. Against LSU, A&M went into the half trailing 9-7. But the team rolled off 56 unanswered in the second half to win, 63-9. Garrity scored once and Dudley Everett and Bell scored twice in the blowout. The team won two straight going into the finale against Mississippi. Everett starred, scoring the team's only two touchdowns in a 14-7 victory. For the third consecutive season, A&M and Texas didn't play because the Longhorns objected to Moran's recruiting practices. The team finished the year 6-1-1 and outscored their opponents 205-31. It was Moran's final season. He resigned because A&M's inclusion in the newly created Southwest Conference stipulated the team let him go. His run at A&M concluded with a record of 38-8-4. In the Dec. 3 issue of The Eagle, a statement read, "Arrangements were completed for renewing athletic relations between the two institutions." A&M hired E.H. Harlan to take over the program.
