" ZUZU " STEWART, Half, Sophomore This back proved a great help when reserve material of the dependable kind was needed to turn defeat into victory. Excellent interfere! - , hard tackier, line plunger. Ancient rivalry engendering a praiseworthy spirit of dogged determination was not sufficient to halt Centenary ' s powerful attack when 5,000 football fans saw Lou- isi ana Tech ' s Bulldogs battered into a bitter 33 to submission on November 19. Opening up with the crushing drive that had swept aside eight other opponents, the Gentlemen five times hammered their way across the Bulldog ' s goal-line and three times the extra point place-kicks sailed between the uprights to leave the Technicians dangling on the thin end of a top-heavy score. The day was dedicated by Coach Norton as " Gentleman ' s Day " in honor of the players who have successfully carried the colors of Maroon and White through eight consecutive victories this season. The Gents showed Tech who was next. " FRITZ " BLACKSHEAR, Full, Senior During this, his second season with the Gentlemen, he distinguished himself by his terrific line plunging and hard tackleing. His loss will be a great handicap to next year ' s team.

" BOB " GOODRICH, Guard, Junior Handicapped at the beginning of the season by an injury, however, he distinguished himself for his aggres- siveness and all around ability. Bob played both guard and tackle with great ability. A successful extra point gave the Gents a 7 to 3 margin over their eighth straight foe of the season — T. C. U. on November 11, and left them among the select trio of untied, undefeated teams below the Mason-Dixon line. They proved that " A team that won ' t be beat can ' t be beat. " The unbelievable fighting spirit of Centenary ' s grid warriors never once faltered, and before the final pistol shot ended the play, they had battered the Texas team into submission. Only a questionable 15-yard penalty on the last minute of play pre- vented the Gents from crossing the Christian goal a second time. As in the famous Mustang clash, victory was not due to one or two stellar stars. With the spirit of ' U-Too, T. C. U. ' the entire eleven showed their strength. We can truly say that T. C. U. fought a good fight and went down in defeat bravely, but when we think of the Gents, we say with pride that it was a glorious victory. OTTO DUCKWORTH, Guard, Senior During his three seasons as a member of the Gent ' s squad he has always given a good account of himself, both defensively and offensively. His loss will be another regret to the team of 1928.

" TOMMY " COX, Tackle, Sophomore His playing against S.M.U. was his outstanding per- formance of the season. He is an aggressive tackle both on the offense and defense. Much is expected of him during the coming season. A gridiron achievement without parallel in the history of century old Cente- nary was accomplished when the Gentlemen played and won their tenth consecutive game of the 1927 reason. The University of Louisville eleven was the victim and the score was 59 to 2. The victory climaxed a thrill-packed season that had brought national renown to Centenary and Shreveport. An audience of about 5,500 persons saw the Gents wind up their briliant campaign by literally overwhelming a team that was doped to give them something resembling a real battle. The Gents simply couldn ' t be stopped. All the reserve man power Coach Tom King, of Louisville brought along with him was thrown into the breach in an effort to rally the Crimson against the terrific line plunges and end sweeps of the Gents, but the older the game got, the feebler became the resistance until in the last quarter the Gents scored just about as they pleased and just as often, rolling up 27 points in the final 1 5 minutes. " JUG " ZECHEIDRICH Guard, Sophomore For real defense work, this man may be classed in the " star zone " of the Gen- tlemen. " Jug ' s " work did a great part in the Gent ' s 100 per cent success. " CAJUN " MARSALIS Half, Junior Marsalis, by his spectacu- lar broken-field running proved himself a back of su- perior performance. Cool passer and interfere! ' .
