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 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 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
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.

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
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
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.

W. P. MBILLU DURRETT
With "hustle" as the by-Word Coach W. P.
Durrett started the season With three lettermen and
worlds of determination. From this Mr. Durrett de-
veloped a team that remained in the city champion-
ship fight until their final game. He, a true hustler
himself, will always be remembered for his ability to
transfer his own boundless energy to his basketball
boys. Coach Durrett continued his amazing work in
creating and increasing an interest in basketball in
Adamson that is unparalleled in the Southwest.
