Earlier in the season
played in the backfield,
where he was outstanding
at the Hrst of theseason,
but later was transferred
to his old end position,
where he finished the rest
of the season. Ivie was a
good captain, tackler,
pass receiver and punter.
He was the only Leopard
player to make the all-city
team. Clarence has played
end for the last three years
and has always been an all-
around athlete. He should
go great in college foot-
Page One Hundred Twenty-lloree
Was an ideal football
captain. He was one of the
best built tacklers that
ever played on an OakCliif
team. "Speedo" was a hard
charging defensive player
that was plenty hard to
knock down. Jones was ex-
ceptionally good on the of-
fense and was an all-around
good sport. When the time
came to make a few addi-
tional yards, "Speedo', was
shifted to the backfield to
gain extra yardage. He
hails from Amarillo, played
three years of good foot-
ball and his name will long
be remembered by friends
and backers of Oak Cliff

WINTON CPopj NOAH
"Pop," although handicapped by having young and inexperi-
enced men, turned out, as usual, a scrapping, hard-fighting team.
All the boys like him, and enjoy playing under his supervision.
He is well versed in all phases of the game, but specializes in
coaching the backfield. He sets an example in his own life of what
each of the boys under him would like to be. It is our sincere hope
that he will be with us for many seasons to come.
XV. P. DURRETT
The task of developing a suitable line was left up to Mr. Dur-
rett, which he did before the season closed. He could make the
boys block and tackle as no other coach could. When he said
"Go," he meant it, and the boys knew it, and would give every-
thing they had till he told them to stop. He is a gentleman, and
is to be admired off the field as well as on it. He has gained the
friendship and respect of every boy that he has coached, and we
hope he may continue his good Work in the future.

pair of legs and is a good drop-
kicker and punter. He has anoth-
er year with the Leopards. Simp-
son, though inexperienced at first
of the season, developed into a
powerful line player and blocker.
He will make Oak Cliff a valu-
able man next year.
, I ,
Beckham developed himself into a first class wing-man before the season finished.
Charles was a good defensive end, and enemy players found his end difficult to circle.
He had a peculiar Way of catching passes, but somehow always managed to hold them.
Beckham has another year on the team and he is expected to be very good because of
his speed, energy and ability.
, CHARLES SPRAGUE, Captain-Elect
Charles is the last of the Spragues, and has a wonderful football future ahead of
him. He has a high standard set before him by his older brothers, Mortimer QBudj, an
All-American, Howard and Johnny. There is something in that Sprague family that
just won't give up until they have accomplished their work. Charlie was an all-round
good center on both the defense and offense. He was an exceptionally hard tackler and
had it not been for lack of weight and age, he would have undoubtedly beat Zed Coston
out of all-state b th. atch that Sprague boy go next year!
Sneed was one of the best
punters in the city and was good
as a tackler. Many times he kept
an opponent from crossing the
goal line. He was a good blocker
and passer. Had it not been for
injuries he would have been a
.much more outstanding player.
Ed has played his last year of
football for Oak Cliff and Oak
5 . Cliff will surely miss his services
" , next year.
