HISTORY OF NEW MEXICO AGGIE RODEO ASSOCIATION The New Mexico Aggie Rodeo Association has gained more than considerable recognition in the College Rodeo World since its organization in 1946. Prior to January, 1948, this Club, like any other rodeo club, had no definite foothold in the field of college sports. Then, at Fort Worth, Texas, the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association was organized by rodeo-wise college cowboys with the assistance of older and more experienced men. New Mexico A M was well represented when the NIRA constitution, by-laws and other rules and regulations governing Intercollegiate Rodeos were drawn up. Since this National Organization was founded, members from our association have been active in the governing of it as well as in the actual participation in various NIRA approved shows all over the Southwest. In 1949 in San Francisco, New Mexico A M placed fourth out of fourteen teams competing for the National Championship. New Mexico A M also placed fourth in the final stand- ings for 1950 out of a field of twenty-nine competing colleges. The Aggies were the champion team at rodeos held at the Cow Palace at San Francisco; Hordin- Simmons at Abilene, Texas; Texas Tech at Lubbock, Texas; and Texas AdI at Kingsville, Texas dur- ing 1950. The membership of the NIRA has now swelled to thirty-nine teams and we are at present, standing second to Sul Ross in the fast-closing race for the National Championship. This spring the Aggie Rodeo Association brought outstanding rodeo stock of Beutler Brothers from Elk City, Oklahoma to the campus for its rodeo. Twenty-one teams entered this year ' s rodeo and out of them, New Mexico Aggies placed second, being beaten by Sul Ross. Individual honors went to Don Driggers, champion bull dogger; F. C. Stover, champion calf roper; Howard Driggers, 2nd in bareback riding; and Linda Hopson, 3rd in the cowgirl events. AGRONOMY CLUB First Row: K. A. Norton, president; J. C. Glass, vice-president; E.

M. football was the saddest since the war. What made it sad was the fact the Aggies had fine players and even placed men on the second All-Conference team — but they had key men injured for every game and were never at full strength. The Aggies rated third in defense in the Conference and in doing so, Joe Dean, senior guard, and Bill Moimce, junior center, were named to the second team all-Conference. Others who also deserved credit were Dick Andrews, Bill Parkman, Fred Jones and Phil Neale. In the offensive department the Aggies missed the services of their ace passer, Sam Mc- Gowan, and relied mostly on their infantry in the form of Fred Haiman and Herb Adams, two junior college transfers. Haiman led the Aggies with over 500 yards from scrimmage and Adams followed closely with over 400 yards. Adams provided the Aggies with the longest run of the season when in a game against the Lobos he took a kick-off on the four-yard line and raced to pay dirt 96 yards away. Phil Neale, Aggie fullback, was out with an elbow operation in the early part of the season and only played the last four games. However, in the games that he played he picked up enough yardage to place third among the ball carriers and could always be depended on to pick up that extra yard. One of the key injuries occurred when Charles Styron was hurt early in the season. Charlie was the leading punter in the conference last year and one of the top in the country. All the Aggies missed the sight of a ball booming out of the Aggie backfield and over the head of the safety man. His shoes were filled by Herb Adams and Bill Bass, who did very well.

Bill made second All-Conference team with his fine play. Only a junior, Bill may be around to anchor down the pivot post again, if Uncle Sam OK ' s it. Bill claims McLean, Texas, as his home. PHIL NEALE Fullback 185 Another of the four-year lettermen is Phil, who is a local boy. Phil was hampered by an early opera- tion but he regained his old form for the Lobo game. He is the pile driver type runner; he seems content to run over his opponent. Fans around State College will miss Phil, comes the 1951 football season.

The climax of season came when highly-touted Ari- zona was beaten by one point. Arizona was rated number 12 in the country. Other good intersectional games were with Murray (Ky) Number 20, Wichita University, Texas Tech, Missouri Southern and West Texas. The Aggies finished in a tie for second place in Border Conference standings and held victories over every conference foe. Two Aggies finished high in Conference scoring : Jim Tackett, All-Conference forward, was third with a 15.1 average and Bobby Porter eleventh with a 11.3. Tackett led in lowest number of fouls with one per game. The Aggies say farewell to two members of the squad, Bobby Jack Porter and Roland Thomas. To both can be said: " Thanks for a job done well. " GEORGE Mccarty Coach George has been an Aggie since the middle 30 ' s and was on the Aggie team that went to the Sun Bowl. He went into the service and later coach- ed high school football at McLean, Texas. He re- turned to Aggieland in 1948 to coach Freshman football and basketball. George has had unusual success with his Aggie teams and has always got the best out of his boys. His Freshman basketball team won 21 and lost 3. It lost all three games by a total of 4 points and later reversed two of the decisions. The following year he was given the Head basketball coaching job and was also Line Coach for the football team. His freshman basketball team formed the nu- cleus of the Aggie Varsity for the last two years. Last year the Aggies finished in 5th place in the Conference. This year they finished in a tie for 2nd place. Recently he has been named Athletic Director and Head Football Coach. No one envies the work cut out for George but we all wish him luck.

EVERYBODY WATCH THE BIRDY. BOBBY JACK PORTER Forward 6 ' 2 " Bob is a senior who has been with the Aggie squad for four years and a letterman three. Bobby was another of the high scorers in the Conference and provided the two in the ole " one-two punch " which is needed for a high scoring team. An erratic scorer but when hot, one of the most feared in the Conference. Bobby thinks that his future is planned for him by his " Uncle " so he may oblige and serve the necessary " hitch. " Bobby hails from Hatch. His game average — 11.7. JIM TACKETT Guard 6 ' 2 " Jim came to New Mexico A and M via the Junior College route. In his first year in the Border Conference, Jim was third in scoring and first in least number of fouls. Jim had 61 field goals and 44 free throws to his credit lor a 15.1 average. In the defensive depart- ment he had eleven fouls in eleven Confer- ence games. Jim was a victim of appendicitis just before the crucial Arizona trip and missed the last two home games. A jimior, he plans to see a lot of action next year and go for top scoring honors in the Conference. After such a successful season it was only natural that Jim should be in contention for all-Conference honors; he was named to the first All-Conference team. ROLAND THOMAS Center 6 ' 4 " Rollo is a senior and a four year letterman in basketball for the Aggies. A center, he con- centrates on defense and controlling the Aggie backboards. A victim of the injury jinx which plagued the Aggies, Rollo had to watch the last five games from the sideline. A local boy who started at Cruces High and a favorite with the fans, Rollo also lettered in football one year. This year he was voted the Greatest Aggie. A big boy who loves to play anything, we know that it will be hard for him to hang up his shoes and we wish him well in his future plans. CHARLES CLEMENTS Forward 6 ' V One of the players up from the ' 48-49 freshman team which won 21 games. Buddy has continued to play the same type of ball. This year Buddy has become one of the better defensive players on the squad after being high scorer in ' 48 and second high last year. A regular, who plays that way, much is ex- pected of Buddy for next year. Buddy has a habit of shooting only when the other men are cold and has been instrumental in saving many a game this year. A native of Hobbs. nvi Tf.C ' ' h bo co El CB 9b0- BOB PRIDDY Guard 6 ' 3 " Another Junior College transfer who help- ed the Aggies gain in prestige is this big lad. Moved from center to guard, Bob was leading the Aggies in scoring until he got hurt in the Sun Bowl Tournament. Up to that point he had a 17 point average against good competition. He did not play a conference contest until the Arizona game and was instrumental in upset- ting the league leaders. Only a Jui:ior, Bob is expected to be a big gun in the Aggie attack next year if he can get his knee in shape. An ace rebound man, he goes up with the best of them. Could be the key to a Conference Championship. RAY ' JR. ' APODACA Guard 5 ' 6 " ' Junior ' was probably the smallest player in the Conference this year and one of the most colorful. A local boy who has a large following among fans in the community, Jimior is the one who steals the ball and dribbles down the court. A good man to have in at the closing minutes of a close game. Junior also lettered in football during his sophomore year. Another player from the colorful ' 48 freshman team, he is expected to be of much service next year. MIKE SVILAR Center 6 ' 1 " Mike came here from Tempe. Since he has been with the team, everyone has been practicing a hook shot. Small lor a center, Mike makes up for this with his ' savvy ' under the basket. Hands the ball off just like a T- formation quarterback under the basket. Very dangerous when playing against a ' short ' cen- ter and capable of connecting from either side of the basket. Defensively Mike rates high in the conference and when going after rebounds he hates to argue for the ball; if he gets his hands on it there is no question as to who is in possession. Hails from Hudson, Wyoming. JAMES BLEVINS Forward 5 ' 11 " Jim is one of the most effective players against a zone defense with his ability to hit from the ' outside. ' Used mostly for long shots, Jim has a good ' eye. ' One of the best shots seen all season was when Jim popped one in from almost mid court in the Arizona game; which singed the nets just as the whistle sound- ed. These two points later proved to be much needed in the final score. Another Junior, he is expected to help the cause next year. Jim is a local boy. JAMES CROUCH Guard 5 ' 10 " Jim became the fireman on the squad and had to put a few fires out during the lat- ter part of the season. An aggressive player, good ball handler and good shot. During the West Texas game, he came in amidst a lot of booing and in ten minutes he had the crowd going mad as he sparked the Aggies. Another good m.an who loves to run with the ball and move out. A Junior who came up with the ' 48 freshman team, he expects to see a lot of ac- tion next year. Hails from the Blue Grass coun- try of Kentucky. BILL DUNN Center 6 ' 5 " Bill is improving each year and may come into his own next season. Aiter finding the basket with a hook shot against the Miners, Bill could be seen practicing almost every day in the Kiva Hut and intends to make his hook shot one of the best in the Conference. Played his best game against the University of Arizona in the upset game. A likeable player. Bill is also a Junior and was center on the ' 48 fresh- man squad. Claims Alamogordo as home town. ALLAN DONNELLY Center 67 " ' Big Red ' , as he is affectionately known on the campus, was added to the squad when all of the ' big men ' on the team were injured and Coach was looking for a center. Red had just led his AAU team to the District Champ- ionship and was hot to go. He began against Hardin-Simmons. Red provided the extra height necessary to play against the mastodons of the courts. A senior who is from Albuquerque. VINCENT BUDENHOLZER Guard 6 ' 0 " Rastus has come a long way in the past year and is moving up and gaining his ex- perience the hard way, a little at a time. Pop- ular with the players and fans, Rastus is from the ' 48 freshman team. His best game was at Flagstaff, Arizona, where he poured in 10 points. Will be around next year to battle for a berth on the starting team. Hails from Belen. LEO COOK Guard 6 ' 0 " A Junior College transfer who has not had much of a chance to show his wares. A good dribbler and a good floor man who will be eager to battle for a position next year, he comes from Oklahoma and attended Cameron Junior College for two years. A Junior who will return next year. BO COATS Guard 6 ' 0 " Bo is another Junior College Transfer who came up with an accurate two-hand shot. His style is more Eastern than any on the team. He has seen action in many games this season and intends to see more next year. Also a Junior, Bo is a product of Wyoming. He has his sights set on a starting berth or the fire- man ' s job and will be fighting from the first practice. KANSAS CITY TRAVELERS Back Row : C. Clements; B. Priddy; A. Donnelly; B. Dunn; B. Porter; M. Svilar. Front Row: Coach George McCarty; R. Apadoca; I. Blevins; J. Crouch; J. Tackett. When the New Mexico Aggies finished in second place in the Border Conference, the Kansas City fever bit every player on the squad and a bid was almost assured. However, before such a trip could take place the Aggies would have to prove that they deserved such an honor and play both Eastern New Mex- ico and Western New Mexico. It was decided by the coin tossing method that the Aggies should play West- ern first and Eastern second. New Mexico Aggies 56 New Mexico Western 53 New Mexico Aggies 33 Eastern New Mexico 42 " After this farce in which the Aggies committed " 34 " fouls Eastern won the right to represent this section and the Aggies returned home despondent. The next day. Lady Luck stepped into the picture and the Aggies were chosen as one of the teams- at-large in the N.A.I.B. tournament. New Mexico Aggies 68 Glenville (W. Va.; 54 New Mexico Aggies 73 Central (Mo.) 69 New Mexico Aggies 56 Hamline BvO In their bid for National recognition the Aggies advanced to the quarter finals, before losing to a Hamline team which lost only two games all year, (one to Phillips Oilers by one point). Tackett led the Aggies with 68 points for three games. Priddy was lost to the Aggies after a recurrence of a knee injury in the Glenville game. FRESHMAN BASKETBALL TEAM Though the season wasn ' t a winning one for the freshman basketeers, there is noth- ing in the record which tells how hard the boys played every game despite the lack of student interest. Rather than call this a poor season let ' s call it a successful one for the boys who played.
