"Gil Coan was the most promising rookie ever to arrive on the Washington baseball scene! Unfortunately, he was never able to realize the high expectations held for him. Joe Engel , the Senators' chief scout who discovered so many great ballplayers declared, unequivocally, that Coan was the best of them all. To put this high praise in perspective, Goose Goslin , Sam Rice , Bucky Harris , Ossie Bluege , Joe Judge , Fred Marberry and Earl McNeely were all dispatched to the Senators on Engel's recommendation and formed the nucleus of the Nats' 1924 and 1925 championship teams." - Author C. Norman Willis in Washington Senators All-Time Greats (Xlibris Publishing, 08/31/2011, Page 272)
