Jake anna Half, Junior Louie Jennings End, J u mar Tommie Younger Tackle, Sophomore The second game was a repetition of the first, the Gents swamping the South- western Louisiana Institute hy a score of 46-0. The Bulldogs put up a game, but hopeless fight against the more powerful and experienced Gentlemen. Again the entire squad was used and all showed to a good advantage for so early in the year. Coaches Norton and Hoy had mentioned the need for a real hard struggle be- fore the big Texas A. M. game. Presenting a team of young giants, the Daniel Baker Hill Billies more than provided that struggle. Only after a hard fight from behind were the Gents able to nose out the winners, 19-12. The sterling work of Ledbetter. Price, Willis and Hamei in the line, and the smoothly working backfield combination of Hanna, Allday, Smith, and Jeffries were the features of the game. Finally the big game with Texas A. M. From the very day the game had been scheduled, the Gentlemen bad been pointing to this game. With Jennings ruled in- Page One hundred twenty-one

Franklin " Bear " Allday Ted Jefferies Charlie Smith Half, Senior Full, Senior Quarter, Senior After running up a string of nineteen consecutive wins, extending over a period of three seasons, the Centenary Gentlemen were finally defeated by Baylor University in October, 1928. This marked the first loss by the Gents since they were defeated by the University of Arkansas early in the season of 1926. Yet, in spite of three losses and two tie games, by virtue of their six wins, featured by a 6-0 victorv over the powerful Texas A. M. squad, the 1920 season was a successful one lor the Gentlemen. Price, Jennings, and Allday received All-Conference Honors and Allday and Hanna were favorably mentioned in several All-Ameri?an Sele?tions. With only a few losses by graduation from the famous undefeated 1927 squad and with gocd material from the Freshman team of that year, prospects were ex- ceedingly bright for a wonderful 192J5 season under the leadership of Captain Price. The season was opened with an overwhelming victory over the fighting little squad from the Sam Houston State Teachers College of Texas by a score of 47-0. Page One hundred twenty

Brown suffering with a high fever, the Gents went into the game an inspired team. For three quarters the two evenly matched teams fought each other to a standstill, with neither having any decided advantage. Often the Gents lost fine opportunities to score by severe penalties. Several times when in the shadow of their own goal line, the impregnable Maroon and White line repulsed the Aggie attack and threw the opposing backs for losses. Finally, in the last quarter, the Gents marched down the field to the 15 yard line, from where Smith passed to Hamel for the winning touchdown, thus administering the first defeat to the Aggies on their own Kyle Field in many years. The feature of the game was the brilliant work of Allday and Hanna bebind perfect interference of Smith and Jef- feries, with the entire line outplaying the famous Aggie front wall.
