JOHNSON Guard RUYLE Half Back WOMACK Half Back The Centenary team started with a kicking game against the wind and the Texans plus the wind were too strong to be defeated in this manner. From the first playing whistle the contest was clearlv a battle between Capt. Gordy Brown, Texas All American star and Capt. Fred Willis. Gentlemen ' s pride of a Louisiana Institution; both starred on the offense and the defense. Another great duel was between Texas U ' s star quarter Dexter Shelly and Jake Hanna, Cen- tenary whirlwind quarter, both were triple threat men and the contest was a beauti- ful display of gameness and power. At the end of the third quarter Coach Clyde Littlefield replaced his entire field team with a fresh squad and in the end Centenary took a game defeat of 20-0. Geared for a comeback after being sprawled by the Longhorns of Texas U. the Gents attempted to trounce the Horned Frogs of T. C. U. With Capt.

dn - Fred Willis finished his football career as Captain of the team and proved to be a very efficient one. He was recognized as one of the greatest football players in the South. The team will certainly miss him next year. Our Captain in 1930 will be Alvin " Lit- tle Cracker " Brown, and we are looking lorward to a great year under his leader- ship. With only three regulars of the ' 29 team playing the Centenary football team surprised a large crowd on their opening day bv defeating the Commerce Teachers of Commerce, Texas, by a score of 68-0. The Gents won by a far larger score than was expected and with a green team, only Capt. Willis, Jake Hanna and Tommy Younger as leftovers from the previous season ' s regulars showed plenty of power in overwhelming the Texans. The passing attack of the Teachers was good as has ever been seen here but they lacked the driving power and punch to score against the dynamic Gentlemen. Jake Hanna, star of the last two seasons, ran wild against the Texans. Caw- thorne and Welsh with their plunging power and Brown and Fench were the other stars of the game. Following on the heels of an easy victory over the Commerce Teachers, the Gentlemen played the strong Texas U. team in the beautiful horse-shoe stadium at Austin. The Gentlemen had been pointing toward this game since the beginning of the training season. For the third time in as many seasons the Gents were to pit their strength against the title-holders of the Southwestern Conference. Page One Hundred Five hiM.

■■■■■:■■ . ... ■ THOMPSON Tackle NOLAN Half Back Longhorns, the Gents went into battle greatly handicapped and emerged with the little end of a 28-0 score. The Frogs scored their first touchdown in the opening quarter strictly by hopping from spot to spot after getting a good start on an eight yard pass. Hanna and Ruyle for the Gents made several beautiful gains but were so handicapped by injuries that it was impossible for them to cross the goal line. The afternoon ' s game was rather disheartening to the Gents. However, they had a better punting average than the Frogs, the Centenary average being 37 yards whereas the Frogs averaged 33 yards. Using practically no deception and relying on a straight running attack and overhead play the Gentlemen rolled up a 35-0 victory over the Sam Houston Teach- ers of Huntsville to shatter their losing streak and to cross the goal line for the first time since the game with the East Texas Teachers from Commerce in their opening «;ame.
