THE YOTVnOPTTV—- CENTENARY COLLEGE 47 UNION UNIVERSITY 7 Team work by the entire Cententary eleven was responsible for the Gentlemen ' s victory over the Union University Bulldogs in the opening game played at the Cemenary Stadium. The visitors, although they held the Gentlemen scoreless during the first, were fighting with their backs to the wall from the very start. Every member of Centenary ' s team shared in the glory of the day, and it was a hard matter to pick out the outstanding stars. A great start showed the real fighting spirit of the Gents. jmtm m fafsm 154

THE YONCOPIN Paul Rebsamen, " C " , Center Despite being troubled quite a bit with his knee, " Reb " made an even greater showing this year than ever before. There is no doubt but that " Reb " was one of the best Centers in the South. He was one of the most competent captains that the Gents have ever had. He used his wonderful skill and knowledge of the game in guiding his team to victory in five of the eight games played. Paul was largely responsible for our gaining the S. I. A. A. championship. Captain Rebsamen was the outstanding star of the Maroon and White in the defense, and he was also a valuable man in the offense. It is easily seen why " Reb " was chosen as the All-Conference Center. Centenary grieves that this was his last year on the team, and we realize that it will indeed be hard to replace him. Files Binion, " C " , Left Guard " Dutch " " Dutch " was the magnificent guard this year that he was last. He is a hard fighter and knows the game. One glance at him any time during the entire season would show that he put all he had into the game, for he always came out with scratched face and hands. Because of " Dutch ' s " skill and ability he was chosen as alternate-captain for 1927. We feel confident that he will put all of his fight into next year ' s squad and make 1927 one of the banner years for the Gents. Clarence Davis, " C " , Tackle " Jelly " " Jelly " made his second letter in football this year. He was an active tackle taking part in all the games. He was elected as alternate-captain of the 1927 varsity squad and will serve in that capacity next fall. m smt i sm 153

m ■THE YONCOPIN Ted Jeffries, " C " , Halfback " Ted " was one of the best defensive men on the squad. He tackles hard and is quick and keen; very few plays were made that he was not in. He made a very aggressive half and should make a better one next year. Albert Beam, " C " , Quarterback " Ab " " Ab " was one of the smartest quarterbacks that ever played with the Gents. He had perfect judgment no matter how tight the score would be. Beam not only ran the team with skill, but was a good ground gainer as well. He fought hard until the whistle blew. " Ab " will be missed more by Charlie Smith who played so well with him as quarterback. But every one grieves to know that he will graduate this year and will not get to play any more at Centenary. A game and clever quarterback, a hard and square player, his place will be hard to fill. Charles Smith, " C " , Quarterback " Charlie " Charles, the right-hand man of Beam, has made a wonderful record his first year on the varsity squad. He is a smart quarterback, and another praiseworthy record of Smith ' s is that he kicked eight consecutive place-kicks after touchdowns in the Oglethorpe game. We know that Charlie is going to deliver the goods next year. Wiley Blackshear, " C, " Fullback " Fritz " " Fritz " was a hard hitter and usually nailed the man he hit. He proved to be a very valuable fullback and worked hard in every game he played. Much is expected of Blackshear on ihe 1927 squad. ■WW ••■Hi 155
