" JEFF " JEFFERIES, Full, Junior Jeff proved himself to be one of the best fullbacks ever to wear the Maroon and White. His defensive play- ing was one of the bright features of the past season. His interference was responsible for many of the num- erous gains against the opposition. He is also very adept at receiving passes. At the beginning of the season Coach Norton predicted one of the best seasons in the history of Centenary. On September 24, thirty-five hundred football fans passed through the gates of the Maroon and White stadium to see the Centenary Gents, S. I. A. A. champs, triumph over Sam Houston Teachers of Huntsville, 27 to 0, in the opening game of the season. Four touchdowns, as sequences of an aerial attack spiced with line plays, gave the Gents their first victory of the season. " BEAR " ALLDAY, Half, Junior Dangerous broken field runner, good punter, and excellent pass receiver. His 101 yard run against Rice was one of the longest runs for touchdown on an inter- cepted pass made the past season in intercollegiate com- petition. Allday promises to surpass previous perform- ances during the 1928 season. He was one of the three of the Gent squad to be given honorable mention for All American by several prominent sport writers.
" CHARLIE " SMITH, Quarter and Half, Junior The past season was Charlie ' s first as quarterback, and his ability to handle the team stood out as a promi- nent feature of his playing. Like Jefferies his inter- ference was very effective. He is an excellent passer and a very capable line plunger and broken field runner. The Gentlemen fought their second victory 2G to over the Millsaps Majors on October 1. The game was their first defense of S. I. A. A. grid champoionship The contest was harder fought than the score indicates and the plays jammed into the four 15-minute periods furnished many thrills. The Gents did not find the Majors so hard in the first quarter when they hung up two touchdowns and three first downs but when the Millsaps coach began sending in reserve linemen in the second half, Cen- tenary was in trouble. It was on an exchange of punts in the early part of the second half that the Gents gained their advantage that led to a score. The real fighting spirit of the Gents brought them through. " JAKE " HANNA, Half and Quarter, Sophomore During his first season as a member of the Gent ' s squad he distinguished himself by his aggressiveness both on the offense and defense. He is an excellent pass re- ceiver, an accurate passer, and a hard plunging back. He was given All-Conference and All-Louisiana berth at half position. Hanna and Allday were Centenary ' s leading ground gainers and scorers. He was given honor- able mention for All-American by several sport writers.
