Henry A. "Ernie" Vick lettered four years in football at Michigan and was an All-Conference player all four years. In his final two years Michigan had a 10-3-1 record and out-scored its opponents 308-42. Vick was an outstanding blocker and tackler. His coach, Fielding Yost, said, "He is the most accurate passer from center that has ever put a ball into play. Under pressure he was dependable at all times." Walter Camp recognized and honored that consistent excellence. In selecting Vick as his 1921 All-America center Camp said, "He is the only man who has throughout the season added great power and aggressiveness to steadiness and consistency." High praise from a high source. Vick was a catcher in the St. Louis Cardinals baseball chain from 1922 through 1926, and appeared in 57 major league games.
