— m TTTR YONCOPINS aw CENTENARY COLLEGE 34 MILLSAPS COLLEGE . The small and light team from Jackson was no match for Centenary. In all departments of the game the Gents excelled. Beam, Allday, and Letteer were consistent in long runs, while Blackshear and Jefferies ripped yardage through the line. The outstanding feature of the game was Centenary ' s holding the Majors for eight consecutive downs on the one-yard line. In that three or four minute skirmish Hamel on right end stopped four of the visitors ' plays. CENTENARY COLLEGE 56 OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 7 In spite of the dark clouds and the threatening weather, a holiday crowd conservatively estimated at 7,000 saw the Gentlemen reach the height of their glory. Oglethorpe, conquerors of Georgia Tech, scored their first and only touchdown during the first quarter, and then Cen- tenary started on their spree to be stopped only by the referee ' s whistle. A total of fifty-six points was made, which helps to show what an excellent brand of football was shown by the home squad. w m 164

THE ONCOPIN E. A. Meadows. " C, " Center Tackle " big meadows " Meadows served his last year on the team as center, guard, and tackle. This proved his versatility as a real football man. He was efficient in all three positions. Walter Stewart, " C, " Tackle " jigger " Jigger was a hard-hitting, hard fighting tackle, active in every line of play. This was his last season in Centenary football and the second season that he has lettered. Otto Duckworth, " C, " Guard, Tackle " duck " Otto was a hard worker and played the game as either guard or tackle. He has the " old fight " and should be a valuable man next year. Leon Price, " C, " Tackle " two-gun " " Two-Gun " was a very valuab ' e man as tackle this year. He was a hard fighter and very few men got through h ' m. Price is expected lo be one of the most cap- able men of the f927 squad and we are sure that he won ' t disappoint us, because he is possessed of the o ' d fighting spirit. 163

— THK YONdOPINgr—JT 1927 FOOTBALL OUTLOOK It seems as though football at Centenary next fall will be booming. Al- ready the roster has on it the names of over seventy eligible athletes, and each of them has already made up his mind that he is going to make matters hard for the other fellow to beat him out of a place on the " varsity. " During the spring training season, the skill and ability of the newcomers were shown to the public in a real regulation game, in which all except letter men took a part. Already the supporters of the team have picked out their man who will surely star next fall. Whenever anyone talks to the coaching staff about its next fall ' s football club, you can easily read their mind and write it down that they are very optimistic, and waiting for the season to come around to justify their op- timism. Next season ' s schedule is without doubt the hardest that Centenary has ever had: Four games in the Southwestern Conference with S. M. U., T. C. U., Baylor, and Rice, and five in the S. I. A. A. with Millsaps, Southern Univer- sity, Birmingham Southern, Louisiana Tech, and the University of Louisville. Such a schedule needs no explanation; it needs to be won and the spirit that is being evidenced around the Campus, especially by the football men, leads us to believe that next year we shall have the greatest team in the history of Centenary.
