University of Tennessee
He was a member of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association champion 1914 team, selected All-Southern. It was the first championship of any kind for the Tennessee program. Winning all nine of their games, the 1914 squad was only the second undefeated team in Tennessee history. The 1914 Vols were retroactively awarded a national championship by 1st-N-Goal, though this remains largely unrecognized. A description of the 14 to 7 win over Sewanee in 1914 read, "Lindsay, as usual, ploughed through the opposing line for consistent gains, and when it was absolutely necessary that Tennessee gain a certain number of yards 'Russ' was sure to be called upon."
He was an All-Southern baseball player as well.
