Homer H. Norton, Director of Athletics Coach Homer H. Norton has been connected with the Athletic Depart- ment at Centenary College for the past nine years and has been an out- standing factor in making the Centenary Gentlemen known and respected throughout the country, and especially in the South and Southwest, where her athletic teams rank with the foremost. Since Norton became Head Football Coach in 1926, the Gentlemen have enjoyed even greater success than ever before. It was under Norton that the Gentlemen ran up their long string of nineteen consecutive football victories, beginning in 1926 and extending to the middle of the 1928 season, thereby winning the praise and recognition of the leading football authorities and sport writers of the country. Homer Norton has endeared himself to the school and all her sup- porters by hik untiring, unselfish, and successful efforts for a finer and greater Centenary College. Page One hundred fourteen

This committee is composed of seven members; four members of the faculty, the President, the Dean, and the Secretary of the Faculty being ex-officio members. Upon the Council falls the task of arranging athletic schedules, passing on the eligibility of players, making scholastic requirements, em- ploying coaches, and attending to numerous other duties. The rules of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association, of which Centenary is a member, govern the eligibility of athletes.

Since coming to Centenary in 1926, George D. Hoy has proved a great help in the development of athletics at the school. His success as Assistant Football Coach is shown by the finely developed backfield work of the Cen- tenary teams. Centenary ' s ever dangerous passing attack is a result of Hoy ' s teaching. Before Hoy came to Centenary, no track team whatsoever existed, but due to his efforts, track now ranks as an important sport in the Athletic- Department. It is with a great deal of regret that the students, alumni, and supporters of Centenary learn that Coach Hoy is to retire from the local staff after this year. Curtis Parker holds an important position with the Athletic Department as Director of Freshman Athletics, also as Basketball Coach. Freshman teams at Centenary have enjoyed great success under Parker ' s direction and since he has been connected with the school, no Centenary Freshman Football team has ever been defeated. To Coach Parker goes the credit for bringing up the standard of Centenary basket ball teams and regaining their prestige of years past. Though lost to the squad as active player after the 1927 season by gradua- tion, " Dutch " Binion ' s efforts are still felt by his work as Assistant Line Coach. Binion has been a great help to Coaches Norton and Hoy by his work with them this year. Page One hundred fifteen
