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. BASKETBALL SQUAD 3, O Hz fl lTwenty Fw: iq

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

Weld: Y- , l i l BASKETBALL QUEEN Charming Jackie Dickie was Chosen to reign over the Leopard cagers as she was elected Queen of Basketball for 1937. The Queen was crowned at the Coronation ceremony between the halves of the Sunset game, and presided over all the Adamson games for the remainder of the season. JAMES "F1FA', Ross Every football team has to have a mana- ger. The Leopards were managed by James Ross. Whenever a player needed equip- ment or assistance, Ross was there to lend a helping hand. He worked along by the side of the players all season and always gave his best to make the team a winner. CHARLES "CHARLIE NVARLIEU MOORE Charles iS the kind of manager that any coach is glad to have. He does his work cheerfully and gives lots of encouragement to the players. Since Charlie was mascot of the Leopards two years before, he be- came manager four years ago, and he has been with the team six years. Luckily, Charlie is planning to take a post graduate course after he graduates in June, so he will be manager again next year. ii Page One Hund1'ca' Twenty Sm
