Rex Gandy Douglas Rawlings Robert Baker Bill Barnes James Fox Woodrow Hunt Page One Hundred Tweniy REX "MAI-IATMAU GANDY Rex, tri-captain and ace tackle for the Leopards, would have been unquestionable All City, but a broken hand, received in the Waco game, prevented it, because it was the cause of his missing three city series tilts. Mahatma turned in a dependable' offensive and defensiv performance in every game he appeared in, which was dear to every coach but the enemy instructor. ROBERT BAKER Robert is known as tl1e sophomore sensation on the gridiron. He excelled as a blocking back when only one year of experience was behind him. Wfith two more years to go, Robert should make a strong bid for All-City. Baker has the real traditional "Oak Cliff Spirit" and much is expected of him in the future. BILL QBODACIOUSD BARNES Bill used his 210 pounds of muscle to a great advantage, smashing through opponent blockers with ease. He, at times, bolstered up the whole left side of the Adamson forward wall when his mates on each side were unfortunately taken out. Bodncious's everlasting spirit during his last.year of play will be remembered by all who know him and have heard of him. JAMES ilHYMAN,, Fox The left guard position was filled in by steady and dependable James Fox. Several boys who opposed Fox said James was the hardest charging guard they had played against. He played almost enough time in various opponents' backfield to earn a letter from their school. BILL "REn,' PRENTICE Bill was one of the most useful boys on the squad. Wllcnever the players needed equipment, or first aid, Bill was always Johnny on the spot. He believed in the Leopards and helped them along with encouraging words and brightened things up when the going was tough. Prentice has been assistant manager two years and this year he was promoted to head manager. He has one more year to be manager of the football squad. RAY NIBLO As the star player, Ray was the mainstay of 'the Leopard squad. He was a triple-threat man being able to pass accurately, punt far and high, carry the ball and gain ground consistently, and last but not least, he was easily the hardest taekler of the city. In all of this Ray was elected All City and was mentioned as an outstanding player in the state. DIDN'T LETTER CHAD SNEED J. V. RIDLEY MARVIN MOORE Woonnow HUNT Marvin Moore Bill Prentice Ray Niblo

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. -.

B TB Ll. L1,ovn Davis "Country", as Davis is known, was substitute guard. Although he played only a few games, he was a good defensive man. Davis graduates in june thereby losing for Adamson another fine prospect. "Country" has been out for basketball three years and this is his first year to letter. A. VV. PIARRIS A. XV. is the tallest man on the team, and lettered for his first time this year. Harris, who played center, is back next year, and should be high in the individual scoring as well as being a memebr of the All-City team. Fuitxox DARBY Darby played guard and made the all city team at the center position. He finished fifth in the city scoring with 78 points. Darby has been out for basket- ball for the last three years and this makes his second year to letter. PHILIP PRICIT Sandy, Pricels nickname, was forward and a good one. He's baek next year, and is all city material. This is Price's first year to letter. Sinit1.1.r LLoaENTE Llorentc, forward, was the boy who stepped into Robert Hunter's shoes at mid- term, and scored forty points. Llorente is only back until midterm next year, but keep your eyes on him the first half. Llorente lettered this year for the first time in his two years of going out for basketball. Fnwix Gixsktx Edwin played guard on the second team, but lettered as a senior. Eddie has been out for only one year, and he lettered his first year out. Dour.LAs Bitowx Dou 'las Brown, ea stain of this vear's team la ed forward and center. "DeaconU 5 l . i P Y y BroWn's nickname, didn't get going until the North Dallas game, but when he did, the opponents knew they had to stop him to win. This was Brown's third year on the squad, and he will be missed when basketball season rolls around again. This makes Deacon's second year to letter. NOT IN PICTURE Gizoltota PAT'rLasoN George, also a letterrnan, graduated at midterm, leaving guard position open which Price filled very well. Patterson had been out for basketball for three years, and this made his second year to letter. K 1 ' ., 9 51450 ir N 44 be XV. P.
