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.

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.

rwt 934 Yoncopm «€: J U u y u u u if ( u u u w u I) « w 14 COURT This was a terrible blow to such a wonderful team, which was more than a favorite to repeat as champions of the conference. The members of the squad and coach were practically heartbroken, but displaying the true Centenary spirit, they took it on the chin like gentlemen. Under the tutelage of Coach " Sheeny " Allums, a vet- eran from the ' 33 championship cage squad, the Centenary freshman basketeers completed a successful season on the hardwood courts during the past season. Although not competing in an organized league, the freshmen main- tained an undefeated record throughout a comparatively hard schedule against some of the strongest high schools and semi-pro teams in the state. At the beginning of the cage season, approximately 30 candidates reported and were suited up. For two weeks, Coach Allums devoted attentions to fundamentals and light workouts against the varsity. Later, plays patterned after those of the varsity, were worked on, giving added strength to the offense. The com- bination which saw most action throughout the season were Murphey and Durham, forwards; Hooper and Thompson, guards, and Decker at center. Others who showed promise for future Gent cage mate- rial are " Cowboy " Hohman, Mason, Burgess, and Majors. Freshman Coach Allums • S 93
