1931 Football .Yemen
Captain and Fullback
James has finished his third year on the football team.
He was injured early in the city series and this kept him
from showing his wares. If he had not been burdened with
this misfortune he would have undoubtedly made the all-
city team. "Hamie" was a fine defensive man, a good
blocker and a powerful line plunger. Oak Cliff will miss
such an excellent captain.

Captain-elect and Center '
John was 'shifted from tackle to center at the starting
of the city series. He developed into one of the best pivot
men in the city. John's excellent defense work made him
the star of the last three games. If it had not been for this
late start he would have undoubtedly made the all-city
team. John has another year and should make a great player
and captain. ' .-A

MR. W. E. NOAH
"Pop" has again coached his roaring Leopards to a district and city
championship. This can be expected from such an excellent coach as Mr.
Noah. Many people say that he is the best back-Held coach in the state,
and this is not an idle boast because "Pop', placed three backfield men on
the all-city team, and two line men besides. Although he makes fun of
small injuries, such as bruises or scratches, "Pop" immediately becomes
alarmed when he thinks one of his players is injured. His boys seem to in-
herit from him true friendship, and when on the football field, the de-
termination to win. Mr. Noah is respected and loved by each boy, and the
friendship between him and the boys will last forever.
MR. W. P. DURRETT
Mr. Durrett, the jolly hard-working line coach of the Oak Cliff Leop-
ards, faced the season with a lot of inexperienced material. He had five
men to replace on the line, and besides these there were a number of cap-
able substitutes to be developed. The only point in his favor was the pres-
ence of a few heavy players. After he had pointed out to them the rudi-
ments of lineman play, one of the best forward walls in the city was
made. "Pop" and Mr. Durrett combined their knowledge and led the
team to a city and district championship, although at the first of the sea-
son chances for a championship team were slim.

CHARLES QJAKIEJ GORE, Hulfbafk
Jakie Gore, the flying Dutch-
man. has ended his fine career in
athletics at Oak Cliff. Jakie was
selected on the official all-city
team for three years. Jakie is
the only player since 1926 to
turn this trick. Jalgie's fine
blocking and splendid running
should make him a whiz in col-
TOM Coon, Quarlerbuck
Tom Cook, official all-city
quarterback for two years, was
proclaimed one of the best high
School passers ever produced in
this state. Tom was a good ball
carrier, but was rarely used in
this manner for fear of injuring
his golden arm. He was an alert
quarterback who always seemed
to know the right play to call.
LLOYD RUSSELL, Fullbaclz
"Wildcat" has finished his
second year on the blue and
white team. He possessed more
fire and determination to win
than any other player. Lloyd
was fast, shifty and was excel-
lent at backing up the line. He
probably gained as much yard-
age as anyone else on the team.
WALTER GOODENOUGH, Guurrl
Walter, who was the spirit of
the Leopard line, was the most
dependable man the Leopards
boasted of. When a hole was
needed, he made it, and when
the line had to be held, he held
it. Walter has been on the all-
city team for the last two years.

PA UL HARKEY, Hulfbuvk
Paul was so fast, shifty, and
dangerous in an open field that
he was nicknamed "Slippery
Elm." He was a good blocker
and an excellent pass receiver.
His hobby was making touch-
downs when the competition was
tough. Paul was unanimously
selected on the official all-city
HILLIARD MORRIS, Quarterback
Hilly, although handicapped by
size, was not handicapped by
ability. He was fast and shifty,
an excellent passer, and a good
sport. Hilly has finished two
years of successful football. and
his singing before a game typi-
fied the spirit of the team.
