I added the text over the original handwritting which says "Animal Charles Hudson", a name he was known for his intensity.
The other two tackle players tried this flying pose, but barley got off the ground.

Obituary of Berta Hudson
Berta Hudson, 91, of Talihina passed away Tuesday evening November 8th 2005 and is with The Lord in heaven. The funeral was held Saturday, November 12.
Berta was born March 20, 1914 near Haworth OK and lived her entire life in southeast Oklahoma.
She was the third of eight children born to H. R. Trammell and Helen Trammell.
She married George Washington Hudson on September 13, 1930 who had been in World War I and had two young children.
Berta and George were married for 65 years; George went to heaven on July 16, 1995.
Her family was her greatest joy and she will be missed.
She was loved by all who knew her and was an outgoing and generous person. Some of Berta’s favorite things were cooking, gardening, fishing, quilting and her flowers.
She was a caregiver for many people during her life.
Berta is survived by step-son Charles Eugene Hudson of Talihina and step-daughter Bernice Fields of Halstead KS, sister Orgal Blue of Talihina, brother Euel Trammell of Dallas TX area, 9 step-grand-children (one deceased), and 31 step-great-grand-children. Step-grand-daughter LaHoma Fields and step-great- Grand-daughter Lugenia LeFlore of Talihina cared for and visited Berta often during her last three years at Talihina Manor after suffering a stroke.
Their loving care for their step-grand-mother is appreciated by the family.
Some Family statements about her life and passing:
“Grandma was such a wonderful grandma and we were blessed to have her and only wish we could have enjoyed her more in her later years. She was a knowledgeable person who really had no education (8th grade only) but so wise. I could have gone on and on in her obituary and wished I had said more. I think she took nursing training but was not sure. She is with Gramp now probably not missing us at all!!!! (smile)” - Betty Jane Fields (Woodrow)
“I'm glad Grandma didn't suffer too long and apparently passed away fairly quickly. I regret she was in such poor health the past few years. She had a long bountiful, love filled life and she will be in our memories forever. We must remember her, as she was, a very joyful, caring, loving, tender person. She was always full of energy, quick to smile, and eager to listen or share good thoughts and warm stories with her loved ones. It is too bad she took so many untold stories and valuable pages of our history with her to a wonderful place where she'll be happier and look upon us for eternity.” Ace A. Fields

- Information From George Hudson; Eagletown, Oklahoma
“Elizabeth Hudson was the first one to be buried in this cemetery.
She requested of her father and mother, since that was the prettiest place for a burial ground, that she be buried there when she died so they buried her there.
Elizabeth Hudson was educated in Tennessee.
She had broad experience as a teacher and loved rural work.
She was a fine Christian character and always helpful to those around her.
James Hudson died some time in *1873 and is buried here though he has no headstone. (*or later, see "My Experience With Indians" by John James)
He was a missionary preacher and during the Civil War he fed many hungry people dividing his corn with them.
Jane Cubit, a colored woman, who is eighty-three years old, says James Hudson was a missionary preacher and when the Negroes were set free, all the Negroes came to him to be married.
A man by the name of Mr. TUSON was interpreter for him to marry these people.
He was the father of Daniel, Wash, Harriet, Amos, and Peter J. Hudson.
Ahhobatema Hudson was James Hudson's wife.
She was from Mississippi and died in 1897.
In Wartime she also fed many hungry people.
She was a good Christian woman. She had no headstone on her grave.
Wash Hudson was killed on a road from Ultima Thule, Arkansas, to his home.
Foster FOBB and Jones JAMES waylaid him on the road and shot him and killed him and his brother-in-law, Thomas AMOS in November 1897.
Neither Wash Hudson nor Thomas Amos has a headstone.
Sarah Amos Winship was killed by her sweetheart in 1892.
She was married to Simon WINSHIP but was divorced from him and was staying with her cousin, Enos TONIHKA and teaching Indian children at Kullichito.
Her sweetheart was Nelson CHRISTY. (Chief Jefferson Gardner’s Brother)
Three years before, he (Nelson) had killed her cousin Dora Hudson; she was his wife and he had been hiding around from this other killing.
After he killed Sarah Amos he shot himself and died a few hours after. Sarah has no headstone.
Virginia Winship Everett was a daughter of Simon (Simeon) Winship and Sarah Amos Winship.
She married Abner CLAY who was killed by Henry STIFF, and then she married Willie EVERETT, lived with him several years and separated from him and got a divorce.
A few weeks after she was divorced, Willie Everett went to the house of Aaron DYER, where she was staying with some of her people and struck matches and looked for her at each window until he located her.
He shot her while she was asleep and she never knew what struck her.
The bullet went through her heart and went through her little girl's head, but the child lived until 1926.
Virginia was killed in 1911 and she has no headstone.
Sam Amos died in 1896.
He was the father of six children.
One night his wife and children went to some gathering and he was left at home alone.
He either had a heart attack or something happened to him for he fell in the fire and burned his legs and hands pretty bad.
After that his folks went off and left him because he was not able to work any more.
The burns never did heal but stayed sore as long as he lived.
One day his brother went and got him and brought him to a little log house near his home.
Sam Amos stayed there until his death.
One day in 1896, they found him dead in the log cabin.
Tannip Hudson died in 1862.
He was James Hudson's brother and was born in Mississippi.
Daniel Hudson was born in 1856, and died in 1901.
Daniel Hudson always held office.
He caught or helped to catch many cattle and horse thieves.
He knew all the trails and knew how to get the criminals.
He held the offices of Sheriff and Lighthorseman for many years and never did have to kill any of the thieves, and there were plenty of them, too, from other states.
He caught three men with fifty head of cattle up in the Kiamichi Mountains.
They had stolen the cattle from a Choctaw at Hochatown, Johnson HARRISON.
His men were behind and he rode up on these thieves, holding his gun on them for twenty minutes before the men rode up.
He used to say those men were cowardly and he never took them again to hunt thieves. He has no headstone.
Willie Hudson was born November 29, 1888.
He was a soldier in the World War.
He always made his home at his brother-in-law's, John T. Beavers.
He was at home only five months when he was killed by Watson JOHN, who had taken Willie Hudson's wife while he was away from home fighting for his country.
Willie Hudson was killed November 20, 1919.
His sister, Levina R. Beavers put a nice headstone on his grave.
Calvin Hudson , a son of Roar Hudson and Alice Hudson, was educated at Jones Academy.
He finished high school at Broken Bow, played Indian football and was well thought of by everybody who knew him.
One Sunday afternoon a bunch of young people came out from Broken Bow to play baseball at a field about a quarter from Calvin's father's home, so [he] went and joined them and played until late.
After supper he made his pallet of quilts on the floor to sleep on.
All at once his father and mother heard a gun.
They ran out there and he had shot himself. They notified Doctor Sherrell at Broken Bow who came at once.
The doctor asked Calvin why he shot himself and he said he was tired of living.
He died in a few hours.
His death occurred in 1926 and he has no headstone.
