Irving Hancock (Dave Darrin, Li Shoon, Motor Boat Club, Dick Prescott, Tom Reade, Square Dollar Boys, Uncle Sam’s Boys), and appeared in sixty-four stories in Young Athlete’s Weekly and Frank Manley’s Weekly in 1905 and 1906.

While at Woodstock Manley leads the school in athletics and helps the Woodstock students triumph in sports and studies.
