FOOTBALL AT ATHENS COLLEGE 

This year's Athens College football team is the second ever to represent the 
century-old institution, an earlier grid aggregation having performed tor the 
school in 1930— the first year boys were permitted to attend the local college. 

The first team had its inception in much the same way the present team was 
assembled, with some notable exceptions: The boys attending the college wanted 
to play football, which most of them had participated in while in high school, 
and, with the encouragement of a number of local enthusiasts of tie sport, a team 
was outfitted by the college. 

The late Frank H. Armstrong and Ewin Grisham coached the 1930 eleven 
which, like the present team, was composed almost wholly of Athens boys. As 
recalled by some of the members of that team, Athens College met six opponents 
—Tupelo Military Academy, Branham & Hughes Military Academy, Anniston 
Military Institute, Columbia Military Academy, Birmingham-Southern freshmen 
and St. Bernard College. The Athenians won their contests with BHMA (18-0) 
AMI (6-0) and St. Bernard, but were losers to Tupelo (0-7), CMA (6-13) and 
Birmingham-Southern ( 0-19 ) . 

After that abbreviated season, football languished at Athens College until 
this fall, when a group of a dozen or more Athens businessmen and farmers, 
cognizant of the wishes of the now-much-larger group of boys attending Athens 
College to engage in intercollegiate competition, "took the ball" themselves. 

It was a matter of a few days for these local businessmen to raise the guaran- 
tee necessary to provide practice togs and uniforms for the squad, and to engage 
Robert Witt, former Mississippi Southern end, as coach. Others of the sponsoring 
group got busy arranging games, the response at the box office at the first game 
on Nov. S being such as to vindicate their belief that the community would 
strongly support intercollegiate football. 

Your attendance here tonight and for the remaining games on the schedule 
will go far towards determining whether you will again have the privilege of 
seeing this same team on the gridiron next fall.

As this edition of The Columns goes to press. 

Coach Llovd Stone's Golden Bears are in the 
midst of a truly rugged schedule and are 
improving with every game. Captained this year bv 
Don Densmore, the Golden Bears are greatly 

handicapped by their lack of height but make 
up for this disadvantage with their sharp-shooting. 

Athens College is noted for its winning teams 
and this year's quintet is no exception.

SOFTBALL TEAM... 



RECORD 



Won 20 



Lost 8 



The Athens College Softball team entered in the Limestone County Softball 
Association and finished third in a very fast league. The team was a menace to 
the top teams all summer and would have fared better if exams and trips home 
had not interfered. 

Billy Nelson, college pitcher, had the second best won-lost record in the 
league. The team was the best hitting team in the league, but was also high in 
the error standing. 

A league rule stated that if a team were ahead ten runs after five innings of 
play, the game was called. Athens College won more five-inning games than 
any other team. Also, they were the only team in the league that wasn't beaten 
in a five-inning contest. 

This year the College will be back in the league and the increase in enroll-
