He played halfback and quarterback on the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association champion 1921 team.[1] Against Newberry in 1922, Randall scored 19 points on three touchdowns and one PAT.[2]

Early yearsEdit

Loren Chester "Teany" Randall was born on May 3, 1901 in New Albany, Indiana to Albert L. Randall, an insurance salesman, and Nettie (Miller) Randall, who both died prior to his 17th birthday. While traveling with a symphony orchestra from Cincinnati after the death of his parents, Teany met a major in Monteagle, Tennessee who encouraged him to join the football team at Chalmer's Military Academy in Jacksonville, Florida. At the conclusion of his high school career in the spring of 1920, his senior yearbook quote read, "Throw my books in the lake! I'm going to play football!" Randall started his collegiate athletic career at Chalmer's Military that fall.

University of GeorgiaEdit

After winning a scholarship, Randall joined the varsity football squad at the University of Georgia the following year in 1921, the last year freshman were allowed to play varsity sports. Injuries plagued the first two years of Randall's career with the Bulldogs, but he maintained his status as a top player until his exit in 1924. Randall was most noted for his versatility as a student athlete, directing the university's orchestra, singing in the choir, writing poems and drawing sketches, and playing on the varsity football, baseball, and track and field teams. He was also tapped to join the inaugural University of Georgia swim team in 1925 while living in Jacksonville, FL.

Later yearsEdit

Randall eventually removed to Springfield, Ohio where he met and married Elizabeth Gram in 1930 while working on a musical revue together. Teany raised his family in Springfield and died in Piqua, Ohio on September 12, 1965.
