V iM iVi irm if nui raffi ' ? r " ■, Qtr i , :::: $£%:, t T - if -fc J? : t ' WV " LOUIE " JENNINGS, End, Sophomore His long and accurate punts were responsible for much of the ground gained by the Gents. He was also given All-Conference and All-Louisiana end berths. His offensive ability was responsible for many gains made against the opposition. Records show his defensive play to be equally as well as his offensive ability. Jennings was given honorable mention for All-American. Before a crowd estimated at 4,000, the Gents defeated the Southern College Moccasins 26 to 0. It was one of the worst drubbings Southern had ever received at home. Centenary began the game with a touchdown by receiving the ball on the kickoff, and completing a pass — Hanna to Hamel. Centenaiy outguessed and outsmarted the Mocassins and the one play, brazen in its conception and execution, turned into a gridiron riot a game that might have otherwise been a tough one for the Gents to win. The Mocassins were dazzled by the terrific offensive drives given by the Gents. " CRACKER " BROWN, End, Sophomore This was Cracker ' s first season on the varsity. Originally a back but proved himself a very capable and outstanding wingman. He should develope into a great end for next season.

" BILL " WARD, Half, Sophomore When speed was a necessity, Bill had no trouble in filling the bill. He ' s one of those kind who drive hard, fast and often. The biggest surprise furnished Shreveport circles in years was the S. M. U. -Cen- tenary game played on October 8. A crowd of approximately 6,000 fans saw the Centenary Gentlemen apset football dope by romping to a 21 to 12 victory over the Ponies from Dallas. The Gents scored their victory by out-playing the Texans. In gaining ground through the line of scrimmage or around ends, in overhead attacks and in punting the Gents were clearly superior to the visitors. Their performances were so sensational and so surprising, the crowd was sent homeward bound staggering from the maze of the brilliant spectacle. The S. M. U. game gave the Gents the spirit needed for a successful year. They could not accept defeat after that. " SKINNY " SCANLON, Quarter, Sophomore Although this was Scanlon ' s first year with the varsity squad, he proved himself to be of great help in the long chain of Gentlemen victories. Always dangerous when in the open field.

" SUSIE " HAMEL, End, Junior All-Conference and All-Louisiana end for the past two seasons. He excels as forward pass receiver, is a good punter, and takes care of his end position as well as the best. It is expected that he will give even a better account of himself in the coming season. The Gentlemen, featuring a long pass from Hanna to Smith, the latter racing 65 yards for a touchdown, defeated the Baylor Bears on the Cotton Palace gridiron on October 22. They were not too confident and in the end came out with a 9 to 6 victory. It was said before the game that Baylor had " all to gain and nothing to lose. " Did she gain it? " TWO-GUN " PRICE, Tackle, Junior When a tackle was made by " Two-Gun " , the victim stayed tackled. Price was one of the hardest men that the opposition had to deal with ; his work both on the offense and defense was of the best. He is the captain- elect for 1928.
