s 1,9 34 voncop in , FRESHMAN FOOTBALL The 1933 Freshman football team, under Coaches Ralph Murff and " Sheeny " Allums, pro- duced plenty of promising gridiron material for the ' 34 varsity, showing up well throughout a hard schedule. Starting two weeks before the fall term, the yearlings were put through stiff workouts, drill- ing continuously on blocking and tackling, work- ing into condition for the opening game. Serving as " shock " troops " for the varsity squad, the Junior Gents gained valuable experience and un- der the critical eyes of the two coaches, Murff and Allums, showed much improvement at the close of the season. For next year ' s prospects the Freshmen produced many promising ball players, both in the backfield and line. In Howard Hooper, from Bastrop, the Gents have a promis- ing candidate for the terminal positions for 1934. At tackle the Junior Gents have Preston Thomp- son, a big rangy man, well over 200 pounds, as effective offensively as on defense. He also handled the kicking for the Freshmen, " booting ' em " long and consistently. " Wally " Hohman from Chicago and " Biddie " Robertson from Haynesville, make a pair of guards well worth considering for varsity material in the future. At center, Burgess from Mansfield, gave a creditable showing. The out- standing backs were Les Cohan, Chicago, at quarter; Green, Minden, at half; Han- cock, Alexandria, at quarter; Mozach, half, from Granger; Mitchell, from Rayville, at half, and Blackburn at full. Before the season ended, a few had to drop out, yet almost the entire squad reported to Coach Curtis Parker, the new Head Coach, for spring training.

Their reward is in knowing that their efforts count greatly in producing an outstanding team. In fact, many of the Centenary luminaries received their training as reserves and later developed into outstanding and capable members of the varsity squad. Those who know what it takes to produce a championship team realize the value of those who are listed among the reserves. Too much praise cannot be heaped upon the shoulders of these loyal gentlemen who made possible the undefeated season of 1933- The minds of the coaches rested better the past season, knowing that should any varsity man be lost to them a capable and willing reserve was ready to take his place. And the work of the varsity men was intensified by the fact that each regular knew a reserve was crowding him for his berth. The adage that " no team is stronger than its reserves " was certainly applicable to the 1933 undefeated Centenary team. ?0

Coach Curtis Parker issued his call for candidates in December, and a few days later, a New Year ' s football game was scheduled in Dallas, taking all the regulars, except one. They opened the season with Stephen F. Austin, barely- coming out on top, then dropped a couple of games to Texas A. M. After this they turned back to football and played the great Dixie Classic. Immediately after the New Year ' s game, the boys hurried on the train and rode over 900 miles, without stopping, to open their mid- west barnstorming tour in Green Castle, Indiana. The Gents made a very creditable showing on this tour and ome to win ten consecutive conference games and not losing any. 5 packed up and went to Jackson for the S. I. A.
