Simpson Hudson Codcn kube Mc rdy Football The Tennessee Wesleyan Bulldoss trampled over all Junior College teams to win the South- eastern Junior College Gridiron Championship for the sixth consecutive time, and lay undisputed claim to the National Junior College Championship for the second straight time. Playing a ten-game schedule with the leading small colleges of the Southeast, the Gold and Blue aggregation won seven games, lost two, and tied one. King College overcame Wesleyan in a heart-b reaker at Bristol, 19 — 14; Sewanee licked the Bulldogs by 25 — to avenge last year ' s defeat. Probably the most thrilling game of the season was the homecoming contest v ith Milligan. It resulted in a 20 — 20 tie. Milligan marched through to score 20 points in the first half, but Wesleyan came back strong in the latter half to score 20 points. Much of the success of the 1938 team is due to the brilliant coaching of Rube McCray. Capitan hHoward hHollingsworth was the mainstay in the Wesleyan backfield, his brilliant run- ning accounting for many of the Bulldog tallies, h e did much to keep Wesleyan m the ball game. The work of Lambert, Ramsey, and Graves was a great asset to the team through the entire season. The whole team functioned well, and Coach McCray commended them for their fine work. At the annual banquet given the boys by President and Mrs. Robb, Bobby Baker, fleet-footed halfback, was chosen captain for next year. Prospects for another successful season are very bright. 46 Boosters of Nocatula T. O. F.
