dl I il? lb lb ll lb QL QL 4. .5 .- F uu""Uuiii"r T E TIL MARION "HAWK" CRAIG CAPTAIN-CENTER Winner Hole Most Valuable Player Trophy All-State Marion was awarded the Hale trophy as the most valuable player of 1938, and thus automatically became cap- tain for the season. He was also chosen on the official All-State eleven in his senior year and played in the All-Star game between North and South Carolina teams in Charlotte. "Hawk" was a mainstay in the fore- wall with his brilliant offensive play and ferocious tackling. He has man- aged the pivotal position on the Electric team for two years and has done a great job of it. There was none worthier to lead the South Caro- lina state champions than this high- spirited lineman. WALTER "Boo'rY " PAYNE BACK Winner Hunter Blocking Trophy All-State Walter, known to his friends as "Booty" because of his superb kick- ing ability, is one of those few lads who will go down in the history of Greenville High as a truly great foot- ball player. He started his pigskin career while only a freshman, rising to stardom overnight. Besides win- ning the Hunter blocking trophy for 1938, "Booty" has been selected on the All-State teams for the past three years and was also picked on the All- Southern squad in his junior year. He is hailed as the greatest punter ever to climb into a Red Raider uni- form. Always a big, strapping boy, he led the individual scoring for the Electrics during the past two years, counting 93 points this season. His all-round teamwork and cooperation have played a big part in bringing the coveted state championship to G-. H. S. for the first time in history.

ll Qt? ll Il 6 ll ll ll gp i 4 T F i6 1"ii6U"'1' TH U I l BILL ' ' BULLET ' ' BYERS BACK Billy, although handicapped by small stature, was the key man in the Raider backfield. His accurate passes accounted for many of the Electric touchdowns, as did his numerous thrilling end sweeps. For three years, his unerring judgment has guided the Greenvillians into the higher circles of prep school football. His field generalship as regular quarterback meant much in bringing the South Carolina football title to G. H. S. last fall. "Bullet" garnered All-State honors in 1937 and attained the second team last year. He also took part in the All-Star battles between the two Carolinas during the past two seasons. His uncanny ability to call signals and his quick kicks will be greatly missed during the ensuing grid campaign. OZELLE "PUss" Cox BACK Playing as a regular fullback for the first time, Ozclle proved to be one of the most dependable performers in the varsity backficld. His power and weight enabled him to pick up neces- sary yardage when the Speermen needed only one or two paces for a first down. His ripping line plunges were practically unstoppable, while his bruising tackles won for him All- State mention. For the past two years, "Puss" has been one of the squad's most devastating blockers. He is not expected to return next year and will be severely missed when the Red and White offensive be- gins to move again.
