MARION "HAWK" CRAIG
Winner Hole Most Valuable Player
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-
WALTER "Boo'rY " PAYNE
Winner Hunter Blocking Trophy
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.

BILL ' ' BULLET ' ' BYERS
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
OZELLE "PUss" Cox
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.
