To the Waco High Football Players and Coaches: lXlay I offer our congratulations to you for the most suc- cessful football season the VVaco High School has had in over a decade. VVe realize the many sacrifices you made and the many hours you drilled in order that you might be able to cope successfully with your many worthy opponents. At times it was necessary for you to overcome a lead your op- ponents had secured but each time you fought your way back and thus proved yourselves worthy of the name TIGERS. Throughout the season you conducted yourselves as real champions not only on the gridiron but in the classroom and among your many friends and admirers. Blay I assure you that we all Wish you success in the future and that the VVaco High School has been honored by having had you as our representatives. The great record the football team made reflects the splendid work done by our coaches. VVe appreciate the splendid work you have done in the past and wish for you much success in your future building of great football teams and the molding of character. Sincerely, G. M. SMITH. ll
