AND HIS STAFF The fourth man on the coaching staff this year was a new man, Norman Buckner. Coach Buckner received his athletic experience at Tulane University where he was an Ail-American guard on the football team. His duties were concerned with the Freshmen, whom he coached in both football and basketball. As assistant to Buckner, Centenary retained the services of Alvin Birkelback, captain of the 1939 gridiron squad, who added his college experience to complete the coaching staff. Not a member of the coaching staff proper, but certainly one of the most valuable cogs in the athletic ma- chinery is Marvin " Hoot " Gibson, who for many years has been handling the training of the Gents. " Hoot " is a landmark around the gym and his services to the department are indispensable. .jsmM Norman Buckner, B. ofE. Freshman Coach of E., Tulane University, 1938. Marvin A. Gibson, A.B.

When the 1940-41 season opened, a new coach stepped on the horizon to guide the athletics of Centenary College. Jake Hanna, one of the greatest stars to ever wear the Maroon and White, returned to his Alma Mater to give it the benefit of his athletic knowledge. Coach Hanna came back to Centenary, not only as a former star, but also with a fine nine-year coaching record in high schools of Louis- iana and Texas. Jake L. Hanna, B.S. Director of Athletics and Head Coach B.S., Centenary College, 1929. Tom Cobb, A.B. Assistant Coach A.B., Northwestern Oklahoma Teachers College, 1935. Elmer Smith, A.B. Assistant Coach A.B., Hendrix College, 1931. He is unique in being the first Centenary graduate to serve as coach for the Gents. In addition to serving as head football coach, Hanna also is in charge of the baseball squad and his record in baseball is indeed a good one. To assist Coach Hanna in his many duties, are Coaches Elmer Smith and Tom Cobb. Coach Smith came to Centenary with a fine athletic background and today serves as chief scout and backfield coach of the football team, head basketball coach, having taken over his duty last year, and assistant baseball coach. Coch Cobb came to Centenary in 1936 after a professional football career and today serves as line coach during football season and devotes his time to intra-mural athletics the rest of the year.

HARDIN-SIMMONS The 1940 edition of the Centenary College Football Squad has just finished a season that will long be remembered as the season, which, although not the most successful ever played by the Maroon and White, was one of credit to a new coach and a bunch of Sophomores. The final results showed that the Gentlemen had dropped seven and won three. Coach Hanna and the Squad Four sharpshooters ready to tire STS a ■•: ■ •• -. •■.•• ' . ' ■.•.
