Duluth Mystery Photo: Denfeld football players from 1951

Help name these Denfeld Hunters. The image above is one of three dated Nov. 29, 1951 that were listed for sale on eBay. The description read: “These three photos were of the football players from Denfeld High School in Duluth, Minnesota. The sign in the background says Public Schools Stadium. The photos are from 1951. Two of the boys are identified: Eli Miletich and Richard Wilson. Eli Miletich gained some local celebrity later in life on the Duluth Police force.”

So, who can name the other two gridiron greats from West Duluth?

Barbara Humphrey answered this on Facebook, and she's a gal who knows stuff, so we'll trust this is the correct set of names:

#10 - Clyde "Abie" Abrahamson
#16 - Paul Lindstrom 
#25 - Phil Lindstrom
#15 - Eli Miletich

This does raise an issue though, since Richard Wilson is supposedly identified on the photos.
