"Pat" was the hardest
worker on the team, and
developed himself until he
could shoot equally well
with either hand. "Pat"
was the best ball handler on
the team, besides Hbeing a
good shot maker. George
returns until mid term next
Big Joe is the boy who
filled the Vacant guard post
left by Willis at midterm.
Joe exceeded all expecta-
tions and came through
with flying colors, as he
developed into one of the
most consistent point mak-
ers on the team.
JACK WII.LISTN0f in Piciurex-Jack, closed a brilliant
the Blue and White on the basketball floor. Willis' defensi
term. This was his third year to letter.
Christe, with his 6' SH
and remarkable work in
getting rebounds kept the
Leopards in many a ball
game. "Moose-nose" con-
trolled the tip off in every
game, and was unanimously
chosen for the center post
on the "All Cityv team.
NORMAN "DUKE" WATSON
Captain Watson playing
his second year with the
Leopards showed plenty of
ability to hit the basket.
His leadership was without
a doubt one of the contrib-
uting factors in the success
of the team.
G. W. CHANDLER
Chandler was the fastest
man on the Squad, and
seemed to be everywhere on
the floor at once. G. W. was
unusually adept getting in
the open, and the opposi-
tion were--hard-V pressed to
find someone that could
keep up with him.
Robert well kept up the
pace set for him by his
brother Clifton on the '36
team. Robert used his 6' 21'
to great advantage and his
"under the goal" work be-
came invaluable to -'the
Leopards. Hunter will be
back till mid term next
high school athletic career as he performed his last time-in
ve ability was greatly missed when hc graduated at mid-
Furnon, another six-foot-
er, although not a starter
this season, is slated for a
first string position next
year and should develop
into one of the main stays
of the team. This was
Darbyis first year to letter.
The "Deacon" was the
most improved player in the
city and finished the Sea-
son playing a brand of bas-
ketball that won him his
letter. "Deacon" will re-
turn next year and will
captain the quintet of '38.

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 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.

Repeating their performance of 1936, the Leopard baseball team came through a
hard regular schedule and a championship playoff series to win their second city base-
ball championship in a row.
The Leopards, coached by W. P. Durrett, led by Captain G. W. Chandler, and with
a "never say die spirit," made the grade when the situation looked the darkest.
The 1937 team was the hardest fighting and hardest hitting club to represent Adamson
in many years.
The moundstaff was composed of the three ace pitchers in the city, Lou "Lefty"
Goldman, Woodrow "Chuck" Hunt, and E. Averea.
Ray Niblo, catcherg Doug Rawlins, first baseg George Phillips, second baseg Captain
G. W. Chandler, short stopg and George Patterson, third baseg hustlers to the last man,
made up an infield that could not be beaten.
The big bats of Elmer Durrett, Pete Layden, and W. L. Patrick, outfielders, played a
prominent part in bringing the city championship to Adamson.
As the Oak goes to press the Leopards are favored in the State playoff.
