RESULTS Centenary is the only major team in the country this season that has played ten games allowing no ties or defeats. They have played four members of the strong Southwest Conference: Baylor, Rice, S. M. U., and Texas Christian U. ; five members of the S. I. A. A. — Southern, Bir- mingham-Southern, Millsaps, Louisiana Tech and the University of Louis- ville; one non-conference team — Sam Houston State Teachers. The " Gentlemen " have compiled a total score for the season of 261 and have allowed only 37 points to be scored on them. The " Gents " have made an enviable record in the aerial phase of the pigskin sport in that they have completed approximately 50 per cent of their attempted (45 of 98) passes. The Centenary team is entitled to every honor that can be bestowed upon them. No gridiron aggregation could have worked harder and more ambitiously and determinedly to bring favorable attention to its college than have the Gentlemen. They have done all that is possible for any team to do.

" 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! ' .
