O AT TENARY " Coach " has been with Centenary College fourteen years, eight years as head coach. The secret of his sue cess has been the loyalty he has created in the players. He has also endeared himself, not only to every student oi the college, but to the town as a whole. It is with regret that we see him go to Texas A. and M. next year, where he has signed as head coach. Coach Curtis Parker, basketball coach, assistant foot- ball coach and head coach-elect, has been with Centenary since 1926. Coach Parker has also served as football scout in the past and has been indispensable in picking weak- nesses of opposing teams. His ability as a scout and as a line coach has been a big factor in the success of Centen- ary football teams. " Coach " has also turned out champ- ionship-calibre basketball teams for the past two seasons, winning ten conference games this season and losing none. We welcome Coach Parker as head coach at Centen- ary, to which post he has been named with the unani- mous approval and good will of all concerned.

HOMER NORTON Head Coach «ji CENTENARY ATHLETIC COUNCIL O. L. Biedenharn, Chairman John B. Atkins Homer H. Norton A. M. Shaw, Jr., Faculty Representative ATHLET CEN The greatest year in the history of athletics at Cen- tenary College was completed w!th the ending of the 1933- 34 season. Under the expert tutelage of varsity coaches Norton and Parker and freshman coaches MurfT and Al- lums, the representatives of the Maroon and White have made for them:e!ves and the co ' lege a record which will go down in the annals of athletics at Centenary. Football first assumed the spotlight with another un- defeated season, twelve games and no defeats, making the string of undefeated games run to twenty-one in two con- secutive seasons. Geisler was the unanimous choice of all major authori- ties for all-American and was given first place by all ex- cept one. Smith and Oslin also won all-American honor- able mention and national recognition. This was made possible by the excellent support of a great team. The Gents again went through a successful basketball season, winning ten conference games and losing none. They were disqualified from defending their championship due to the ruling of ineligibility of a player. Coach Homer H. Norton, who has given Centenary a grid team that any school would be proud of, has won national recognition for Centenary and Shreveport. TIFFIN GIGLIO 72

CENTENARY ' S UND The greatest group of Gen- tlemen in the history of Cen- tenary in spirit as well as record, closed the 1933 sea- con, having played twelve games without any defeats, continuing the brilliant show- ing of 1932. Injuries and malaria rid- dled the Gents roster, respect- ing neither regular nor re- serve, but the morale never wavered. Coach Homer Norton de serves due credit for his ex- cellent work in producing one of the greatest teams of the nation, from the remainder of the 1932 squad, and for rebuilding his team so expertly whenever adversities lay in his path. Coach Curtis Parker, whose worth as a football coach is a proved and undoubted fact, has taken over the coaching reins as head coach for Centenary beginning with the 1934 season. Coming directly from Arkansas University, where he was an outstanding athlete in all lines of sport, he has eight years of coach- ing experience with the Gentlemen. Parker was the second man in Arkansas University to letter in three major sports, the first being Renfro, present assistant coach for the Gents. Parker, besides being a coach of unlimited football knowledge, is a marked basketball coach, having turned out an outstanding cage team every year. COACHES RENFRO AND PARKER 74
