i GRAYDON GILL LEWIS KEI,SAY ffackicj VVhenever a player was hurt Coach Allen always had one man on the side lines whom he could depend on to take his place and play as equally as good. That man was Graydon Gill. Gill played tackle and excelled in that position. RUPERT GREEN fEnrU Green proved to be an excellent end and played the same unassum- ing game that he played last year. He was forever on the alert, was fast, and carried a world of speed in every play he made. He was quiet and always considerate of his fellow team-mates. By his actions on the gridiron he has probably created a habit of fair play that will follow him in whatever walk of life he chooses to pursue. Bn,1.iE HARPER fHaffj Another of the young play- ers who learned a great deal about the pigskin sport was Billie Harper. Harper was one of the fastest players on the team, and should he de- cide to come back next year, he will be the regular quarter. He is a smart player and a real runner of the Lynch type. fGuanU "Red," after once getting started, played a real game at guard. He was a tighter from the start, and although very light and young, he made larger hoys play hard to brush him aside. At San Antonio he was matched with a 200 pound guard and during the third quarter the heavyweight went out of the game due to the fierce playing the Oak Clif? youngster gave him, Kelsay should he a star next season. JACK SWATEK ffjuardj An injury also held Swatek in the background. jack is a real guard, has the power, the weight, and the speed and should play on the line like a demon next fall. He will especially add plenty of weight to his side of the line.

Hmvaizu bPRAt'QI,'1i fl"nft'j Sprague, the hig 24141 pound fullhaek and tackle, played a ennspieinus part in the EHS playing inf the Leopards dur- ing the seasnu. He is au ex- cellent plunger and is so good un the defense that lie is tunred to tackle on the line when the other team has the hall. Sprague proved to be such a tint- player. such a like-ahle team-mate. and sueh a fair spurt that he was un- animously elected to lead the 1928 Oak Cliff Leopard foot- hall team, l'.S'l'Illf1R Faiuus ffjlnlrtlj Farris came tu the team frum nut- of-tuwn this year and turned nut to he an excellent guard. lle played in most all ui the games :md in every- one fought hard fur the Blue and NYhite. lt is with much regret that we see a gentleman player like Far- ris leave the team. LAAXVREXCE BLAN 'VON fllalfj Blanton, although mnved irinn his regular pusititqn of end tu the hack- fteld, starred for Oak Cliff at half, "Sleepy"' played a smashing game and crashed the line fur many gains. His place will be very hard tu till next year. Tom Cam ffaclclfj Cain was out of the lineup must of the year with an injury, but showed a remarkable degree of fine playing in the few games in which he participated. Cain is a steady tackle and goes ahuut the juh uf re- moving certain enemy' players with a great deal uf enthusiasm. He will prove a very valuable tackle next year.

W LI.OYD b'l'RAL'CiIlAM fflalfj Lloyd Straugham, "Firpo" after three telling years of constant prac- tice at Lake Cliff finally became a. real spoke in the lracktield movement of the team and held down one of the halfbaek positions like a Veteran. Firpo played fine football and made constant gains when the quarterback Choose to nominate him to carry the hall. PERRY SPENCE flhzlfj Perry played another year at half that was representative of the 1926 Campaign, Again he played in the backfield as interference runner de- luxe and paved the way for many of the touchdowns the Leopards made. Perry passes on as a person not seeking personal glories, but a player playing for the team and the other man rather than himself. HARlJl.lJ lVIooRE fllalfj Moore proved to he an in- valuable lnaekfield player and often suhstituted for the reg- ular men in such a way that his presence was felt very much. Moore will lme back when the team lines up next year and will play a regular halfback position. 1, F kloic LINDSAY ffarklyj Lindsay more than held his own against opposing tackles during the season and held up the right side of the Leopard line with a grim deter- mination to win. Lindsay was quick to see openings in the opponent's line, and was also good at Opening holes when the occasion arose. He had the power of strength and knew how to use it. FRANK HILLPOT fgznznfj Although Hillpot came out for football after the season had started, nevertheless he overwhelmingly made the grade and gained a vast amount of experience which will mean much to him next year.
