Coach Autry had to start from scratch and as a result the seasonwas none too good. He did not have the strong defense line or flashy offense of last year to work with, but despite the losses, the team was spirited and determined to do their best, which they did. 40 rf, ' . ,x 1 . 0 ' 97 G i , Seated Left to Right: Howard Ray, Boyd Greeson, James Grigg, Herbert Belvin, Gerald Wallace.
