ll .George Patterson nl. V. Ridley Wensel Gandy Kenneth Landers I. E. Avera Lloyd Davis Page Ont' Hlmclrerl Eighteen GEORGli "PATH PATTERSON George, tri-captain and quarter back, had a tough assignment, but he handled it with ease and had some to spare. Pat smashed his way through broken fields and left would-be tacklers clutching at the air. As a safety man, George was unbeatable. WENZEL 'lBRo'rHER" GANDY About school, W'enzel is called "Brother" because he is that kin to Rex Gandy, star tackle. This is the first time in a number of years that two brothers played side by side in a game. Brother, during the season, excelled in pass xnaring and ran the leaders a tight race at blocking and tackling. KENNETH 'QSTE1'--N-FETC1-IIT" LANDERS Kenneth was probably the hardest struck boy on the Adamson squad as far as injuries were concerned. He was the hardest worker and a very dependable guard until "Lady Luck" went against him in the I. O. O. F. game. Step-n-Fetchit stayed in there and fought hard and won his letter. Next year much is expected of him. J. E. AVLRA J. E. rose from the rank of a scrub, to bench warmer to the varsity squad in a week's time. He surprised fans, but those who knew football players felt that E. was a natural as a guard. He, in the Sunset game, started the tide turning as he smashed his way through his opponents and contacted the ball carrier with fierce and deadly tackles. Avera finished his high school career as a football player in great style, and his spirit and hustle will be the example for football players to come. LLOYD KCOUNTRYQ Davis Lloyd was the utility man on the Leopard squad. He played seven different positions during the fall of '37 and played one as well as the other and as well as any player who usually held down the position. Country had hard luck during the first of the season with an injury in his knee, but he got over it and finished in a glorious manner at right guard. EI.MER USCORPIONU DURRETT Elmer on numerous occasions not only was a good offensive and defensive player in the line, but he also demonstrated some fine ability intercepting passes, while breaking up line plays. This is Durrett's second year to lettr, and with his indis- pensible line backing on the defensive, he should be given honorable mention for All- City. JAMES SUTER Taken from his regular guard position, James was placed at the right tackle posi- tion in place of injured Rex Gandy. He played as brilliant a game at tackle as he did at guard, and will be remembered by his teammates and opponents for his fair and excellent playing. Elmer Durretlt James Suter

JANIIS "Davis" Oakl-.s Tri-Captain Oakes was one of the outstanding players in the district. In fact he was picked by many as All-City. He was one of our hardest tacklers and best blockers. He was a fighter to the end, and no doubt will always be remembered by both friend and foe. Whxltlti N "jok1,R" HAIKIJING W'arren's do or die spirit, and consistent hustling, in turn, gave him a letter this year. Not only spirit and hustle, but his ability to block and tackle were remarkable in spite of his lack of experience. Harding has what it takes, and will be back next year to display his skill. QJLIVI it C:AVl.'l 1' Oliver lettered this year for the first time and will be back next year to take the Leopards through another year of history football. He was a serious worker and was very dependable when called upon. Oliver was a good player on offense, and defense, though lack of experience held him back considerably. HAL QHOIFD McCu1,t.oUcn Hal surprised many Leopard fans by taking over the right end position at the first of the season and holding it through out the games. His great improvement was in blocking and tackling, and that gave him the promotion. "Hole" opened the season with a bang, showing his ability at catching passes from all angles and posi- tions. Hal has one more year to play and has great hopes of carrying away all-city honors. Douotas RAWLINGS Though not mentioned much during a game as outstanding, Douglas was the real and true cause of Niblo's consistant ground gaining. His superb blocking on off-tackle plays and end runs will always be remembered. Though this was Doug's first and last year to play on the Varsity squad, he made himself known to all Leopard rooters who saw him play. G. W. CkiANDI.l2R Chandler is rated, by all. as one of the fastest and shiftiest backs in the city. He was as brilliant a pass receiver and he was a ball carrier and in him was the spirit and hustle that all great football players have. G. XV. finished his football career at Adamson this year, but will be heard of in years to come, not only in football, but in basketball and baseball as well. Ai. BoA'rMAN Al was another one of the boys on the injured list at the first of the season, but he pulled out of it in time to get recognition as an excellent football player. Boat- man showed vast improvement as the sea-on went along and always had that fight- ing determination to win. He will have a hard job next year as guard, but his spirit will carry him through. , 1: .A,1'z2'af f' X i X V gg. my fs.. e 4-if be C We W .M i K , - ' 3212. -.
