Q I 3' ,4 if .Q P. H. UPETEU DUNHAM P. H. "Pete" Dunham was Adam- son's left guard. He weighed around 160 pounds and was 5 ft. 8. in. tall. He was very fast in pulling out of the line and was a deadly tackle. He was unexcelled in block- ing the fullback. Pete was selected to play in the All-Star game. This was Dunham's second and last year to play. RAY NIBLO Ray will be remembered not only by his team mates, but by most of the boys he has played against, because of his plendid blocking and tackling. Ray played halfback in great style, and he was one of the hardest tackling players in the city. Ray will be back next year and should be a sure bid for All-City honors. JAMES OAKES james did remarkably well as end, in spite of his lack of experience. Besides snagging passes, he was a fine blocker and hard tackler. This is james' first year, and he will captain the Leopards next year along with Patterson and Gandy. NORMAN itDUKE,, WATSON Norman was a one year man, a serious worker and very dependable. Duke was a good player on the offense as well as on the defense. He graduates this year. BOYCE "HUsKY,' NALL Big Boyce Nall substituted at guard position. Boyce is low in stature and weighs 180 lbs. He earned his letter by performance in the Sunset game. He blocked two punts which led to touchdowns for the Leopards. By virtue of this, Bill Bushman selected him on his All-Star tearn. This was Nall's first and last year for the Leopards. RANDALL USTARD RYAN Randall, commonly called "Star", was the speediest back on the squad this year because of his track ex- perience. Randall was handicapped because of his light weight, but nevertheless he made numerous long spectacular runs. His services will be greatly missed next year.

'r M1324 5 s ELMER NREDD DUxRE'rT Elmer was one of the steadiest players on the team, and always turned in a sterling game. Red is the type of man who makes a good center, and he certainly did every- thing that was expected of him, and then some. He has a line spirit and will be a sure bid for All-City next year. ' PETE LAYDEN "B. TY' Pete Layden was shifted from end to backfield late in the season, but he quickly stamped himself as one of the best backs in the city. His superior punting and passing was praised by everyone. He was selected to play in the A11-Star game. This was Layden's second and last year to play for the Leopards. - spirit. W. A. NBUSSEYH STRICKLAND W. A. will always be remembered for his dependability and his great fighting spirit. Bussey has lettered at a guard position for the last two years and at tackle this year. He was one of the best tackles in the city this year, and his position will be hard to fill next year. GLENN QQSLEW-FOOTJ, SCHERER Glenn ended his athletic career at Adamson this year. He was a stellar linesman and held the position of center, one of the most important positions on the team, in, a manner that would be creditable to anyone. He was an excellent blocker and had the traditional "Oak Cliff" JAMES 'KMOOSE-NOSE,, C1-nusTE james, the largest man on the team, used his weight to a good ad- vantage in stopping the opponents' backs. Moose-Nose, playing his third year, showed vast improvement over last year, and always had that fight- ing determination to Win. His tackle position will be hard to fill, and he will be missed a lot by the rest of the boys. p ,, " " Q Page One Hundred Twenty-Two

I' I 3' .,..,., W ,J rx n it y, cr GEORGE PAT PATTERSON Patterson was the lightest and the speediest back on the team. In broken field running, he was un- excelled. His ability to side step and elude opposing players was un- canny. This was 'lPat's" first year to play as a regular. He will be back next year to tri-captain the team and much is expected of him. WOODROW BILLINGS Woodrow Billings substituted at tackle position. Woodrow was handicapped all season with a bum knee. He wore it taped practically the whole season. Woodrow was large and heavy and would have been one of the best tackles in the city had it not been for his knee. Billings came to Adamson from Smiley, Texas, and has played his last game for Adamson. AMos MUSSOLINI CENDALI Amos "Mussolini" Cendali didn't weigh over a hundred and forty pounds, but he did the work of a two hundred pounder, He was the most versatile player on the team, having played end, backfield, and finally guard. Cendali was also selected to play in the All-Star game. Mussolini played his second and last year for the Blue and White. JACK HBUBBLEU WILLIS jack was one of our best backs this year, playing fullback. He played a great brand of football and was always hard to stop. Bubble has lettered three years at Adamson and has made the All-City team the last two years. He was voted the second most valuable player of the city this year and was awarded the trophy for being the most valuable player for the Leopards. ALVIN JU-JU" STERLING Alvin "Ju-Ju" Sterling was Adamson's blocking back. Although being very light, he made up for it in Hght and determination. He carried out his assignments with a smile. His work on a defense was above reproach. As a tackle, few equalled him. This was Ju-Ju's second and last year to play. REX QQMAHATMAJ, GANDY Rex Gandy, better known as "Mahatma,', played tackle. Alto- gether being inexperienced, he held down his position like a veteran. His ability to get through the line was uncanny. He showed his worth by playing every quarter except one. This was Mahatma's irst year to play, and he will return next year to tri-captain the team. ,wif S V-'fl Page One FI1n1rlrt'nl Twe1ziy-Four I ,.-1 .Q -.Ir . 1"-'53
