Reid, “for several years, the genial Watty was the life and soul of varsity football (at the University of Toronto). As a player, he was nothing less than a miracle of speed, accuracy and artfulness; as a centre forward, he was a model of unselfishness and a phenomenal shot of goal; as a captain, he was an inspiration and an ideal to his men”... as noted by the Toronto Mail & Empire in 1932, “Dr. Thomson during his college days won the reputation of being the foremost association football player in Canada”...
