Aerial view of Centenary stadium during the L. S. U. game of 1932. ' — w. J)eveiopment of OflkUiics Doctor Sexton was as much a part of Centenary ' s athletic activ- ities as he was a part of its scholastic achievements. He brought " Bo " McMillan to Centenary as coach in an effort to build up its football fortunes, and when the time came to select a name for the team it was Doctor Sexton who selected " Gentlemen. " He did not want his players to be called for animals — Bears or Tigers. He wanted them known — in all ways — as " Gentlemen. " His selection attracted nation-wide attention. As a result of the growing fame of Centenary ' s football teams, the new stadium, shown above, was erected during the last year of Doctor Sexton ' s presidency. This new addition to Centenary ' s growing plant came as a gift from Arch Haynes, one of Dr. Sexton ' s most devoted friends, during the later years of his life. Dr. George always arrived early at the Centenary games to chat with friends, visit a bit and get a good seat for the opening kick-off. He is shown here at the 1936 Tulane game. Dr. Angle Smith looks on as Dr. Sexton clasps the hand of Arch Haynes at the dedication of the stadium in 1932.
