We wish to dedicate this as a token for her services through the year.

Munford A 6 Talladega 7 Anniston B O Talladega O Munford A l3 Aida Thomas l"Torch"l lvey, Captain, made an excellent leader for this year's team, Although he was injured part of the season, he still played excellent football. His passing and running played a large part of every Talladega victory. Eugene l"Rosie"l Freeman was the leading scorer of the Tigers' machine. When he took the ball under his arm he had only one thing on his mind, that. was to go places with it. Walter Henley played outstanding ball in all the Tigers' games this season. He was particularly effective in the crushing defeat of Anniston by Talladega. lack Rutledge, also a returned veteran, was all-state honorable mention in l943. He returned to continue his excellent football playing. He played outstand- ing ball against Anniston. Ferrell Hobbs was adept at all departments of end play. He was a great pass receiver and defensive man. He was called by many scouts the best de- fensive end they had ever seen. Charles Quarles, a great blocker- and tackler, is the best college prospect of the entire imposing array of college prospects that have performed for the Tigers of 1946.

He called the playsupart of the time and did an excellent job. lulius jones l"Zeke"l didn't get to play much, but he gave his all when in the game. jimmy Blackmon was the best defense linesman on the squad. Weighing in at 232 pounds, "Pig iron" wound up three excellent years of football-. Gene Harris lAlt. Captainl, played steady, con- sistent ball .at guard. He called all the defense formations. He did a fine job and was probably the most underrated man on the squad. Durell Morris will be heard from next year. He was one of the four juniors on the squad. Great things are expected of him next year. Douglas i"Doug"l Keith knew football as well as any one else on the team. He was a finished per- former at guard. He played his best game against Anniston.
