RING COACH MATT PRICE top with a record of five won, three lost, and two draws. The task of shaping raw material into finished products was again placed upon the ahle should- ers of Matt Price, ex-soldier pugilist and matchmaker for the local amateur hoxers. After Coach Price had put the Gent squad through several hard drills, he secured a match with Tulane, which resulted in a win for the Gents. After the victory over Tulane, the rest came easily, with the local squad win- ning over L. S. U. Northeast Center, Chilocco, and Oklahoma Military Academy. Following these noteworthy victories, the Shreveporters staged a barnstorming tour in Arkansas and Oklahoma, with the result of three losses and one win. A match with Louisiana Tech concluded the very suc- cessful season. Outstanding on the ring team were Willard Dean, ace heavyweight and Cap- tain of the squad; Linden Bonner, lightweight; Arthur " Boy " Blue, ban- tamweight, and Clyde Jackson, a lightweight. Centenary entered two men in the Southern A. A. U. boxing tourna- ment, Captain Dean, who won in the heavyweight division, and Linden Bonner, who was crowned king of the Southern lightweights. As we go to press a report comes from the ringside at the National A. A. U. Tournament telling a thrilling story of the crowning of a new American amateur heavy- weight champion, who is none other than Captain Willard Dea n. Linden Bonner went to the third round before he lost on a decision. [ 99 ]
