HOMER H. NORTON Director of Athletics Since coming to Centenary College eleven years ago, Coach Homer H. Norton has with each succeeding year endeared himself to students of the school as well as won praise for the school throughout the country by the excellent records of his football teams. Coach Norton became head football coach in 1926, and since then Cen- tenary College has enjoyed an envious position in football circles. His teams have repeatedly conquered teams of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association, Southwest Conference, and only last season his charges were victorious over one of the " Big Ten " teams. Coach Norton drew the spot- light on himself and Centenary College by winning nineteen consecutive games from 1926 to 1928, which included a season without a defeat. He will ever be remembered for his efforts in building up a real " school spirit " and a greater Centenary College. 108

The Athletic Council George M. Reynolds Chairman John A. Hardin Asa McDonnell W. G. Phelps Bryant Davidson All athletic games, exhibitions, and contests at Centenary are under the direction of the faculty, acting through its Athletic Committee. This com- mittee is composed of seven members: four mem- bers of the faculty, the President, the Dean, and the S ecretary of the Faculty being ex-ofncio mem- bers. Upon the Council falls the task of arrang- ing athletic schedules, passing on the eligibility of players, making scholastic requirements, employ- ing coaches, and attending to numerous other duties. The rules of the Southern Intercollegiate Ath- letic Association, of which Centenary is a member, govern the eligibility of athletes. 107

J " l 193! Coaches Curtis Parker Assistant Coach and Basketball Coacii Fred Willis Freshman Coach Coach Curtis Parker is the man who backs up every football movement made at Centenary College, as assistant var- sity coach. His efforts, which are time- ly and needed, have been felt in the past few seasons while he has been working with the varsity, as well as the years past when he was coach of the freshman teams. Much could be said of his success as basketball coach also, but little is neces- sary. He is the leader of a champion- ship team. Fred Willis served his first year on the coaching staff at Centenary the past year and proved himself to be a capable leader. As coach of the freshman team Willis has a very important position, for the task of developing future Gentlemen falls upon his shoulders. Although we missed him in the line-up as a player, we are glad to have him back as a mem- ber of the coaching staff, and hope that he remains with us. 109
