Never able to function as a consistent and smooth-working eleven, and consequently one of the poorest freshman teams in the annals of Centenary, the Maroon and White Junior aggregation of 1934 never accomplished anything in regulation battles. They only played the roll of dummies for the varsity to push and throw around on the practice field, and at such a task the only commendable com- ment that can be hurled at them as a team is equivalent to naught. The only creditable comment of this year ' s Frosh team is that they were a willing, dependable set of players. The freshmen played five games, tackling Paris, Texarkana, Lon Morris, Louisiana Tech, and Barksdale. They lost to Louisiana Tech Bullpups by a score of 7-0; battled the Paris, Texarkana, and Barksdale teams to a 0-0 tie; and dropped the other tilt to Lon Morris Junior College. Although the aggregation made a very poor showing, it is not due to poor coaching; because the two coaches that instructed them were two of the best gridders ever to trod the gridiron in this neigh- borhood. The team was coached by Ralph Murff and Maurice Morgan. Murff, who handled the backfield athletes, was a triple- threater. He was one of the outstanding backs under Coach Homer Norton. He can be recollected when he plunged through the Lou- isiana State forward wall for the only touchdown of the game, giv- ing Centenary a 6-0 victory over the Tigers. He won the game and became the first player of the 1932 season to score through the Louisiana line. The line coach for the Frosh was Maurice " Kike " Morgan, who was given the distinction of being one of the out- standing wingman in this section of the Union for his weight. William Stone, Charlie Thomas, Willard Dean, Hildredth Ellis, Ed Trickett, Charlie McDon- ald and Ogbourne Rawlinson were the outstanding players on the freshman team this season. The following players received numerals: Ogbourne Rawlinson, Duel McDuffie, Charlie Mc- Donald, Ed Trickett, Stanley Struglinski, Harry Fairman, John Yerly, and Ed Schwing, linemen; Huddleston, Harris, McQuiddy, " Dixie ' " Beasley, Millard, Ellis, Dean, Stone, and Thomas, backs.

JlMMIE SERRA Jack Frizzell Orval Justus Henry Johnson Bob Decker David Mitchell Preston Thompson Sam Pernici Willie Mozach Spectators that measure into millions, radio broad- casts, and praising newspaper stories are not the mo- mentous parts of the intercollegiate game of football. What is this fascination t hat football has for the people? Not the winning or losing not the mere physical contact not just the thrills. These are the features of very sport. But CHARACTER! There ' s the secret! For of valor and loyalty and patience is the great game of football made up. These virtues stand revealed in the players themselves in the coaches in the officials. And, above all things, these virtues are bestowed upon the faces of the reserves the lowly scrubs. They serve as dummies for the regulars to slaughter. Battered and bruised, yet ever smiling, they accept the path that is not filled with glory. When the gridiron season has been ter minated, alway? keep in mind the teams that conquered every game, have achieved because they had a fighting crew of substitutes. Let the stellar players be lauded by the public, but give considerable credit for the victories to the reserves who have played well on the practice field and developed manhood. The Centenary College football reserves have achieved the aforesaid virtues and they are to be given credit for the Gents ' 1934 successful football season.

Maurice Morgan Assistant Coach Although the 1934 Maroon and White fresh- men foothall team did not come through with flying colors in their regulation battles, the in- dividuals, as a whole, have the qualities neces- sary to tackle varsity competition. The athletes have the confidence, and they will in all proba- bility make good players. Coming up next season to vie for positions on the varsity are seventeen freshmen. They are as follows: John Yerly and Ed Schwing. ends; Ed Trickett, Stan Struglinski, Harry Fairman, tackles; Ogbourne Rawlinson, center; Duel McDuffie, Charley McDonald, guards; Huddleston, Dean, Harris, Beasley, McQuiddy, Millard, Thomas, Stone and Ellis, backs. The outstanding linemen are Trickett, Strug- linski; McDonald. Rawlinson and Schwing. hi Struglinski, Coach Parker has an athlete who tips the scales at 240 and is over six feet tall. Although he is awkward, " " Stan " will develop into a good tackle due to his power. Trickett, who starred for Byrd High School, is another that deserves comment. He is a good battler and knows the game. Coach Parker has a good quartet of backs in Dean, Ellis, Stone and Thomas. These four boys can punt, pass, and run, and consequently will make a great set for the varsity. Non-lettermen, who will try for positions, are Jimmie Serra, Vance Hancock, Willie Mozach, Bob Decker, Preston Thompson, J. E. Riner, Jack Frizzell, Hal Burgess, Henry Johnson, Earlton Johnson and David Mitchell. Hancock, who made gridiron history for Bolton High of Alexandria, will make a good man for the Cents. He is a fast and shifty ball carrier. Jimmie Serra, stellar basketball player, may break into the regular lineup due to his pass catching ability. Coaches look over.
