A SALUTE TO THE SENIORS
Tom Barnes —Tom played little
football as a freshman due to the
fact that he was hampered with
a bad knee. Some even felt that
he would never play again. He
worked on the knee and became
one of our toughest ends. Tom
was chosen captain in this, his sen
ior year. His ability earned him
the Most Valuable Player Award
this year as well as a Little All
America Honorable Mention. This
year he threw the javelin in track
and came in fourth in that event
at the recent conference meet.
Howard Braxton Ho war d,
termed a "leader" by the coaches,
has participated in three sports in
his four years at Guilford. He has
been one of our finest trackmen in
recent memory. "Rabbit" earned
his track fame in the 440, Mile
Relay and recently the 880. Last
year Howard was an offensive end
on the Football Team. This year
he was switched to a defensive
end. Howaul also played Basket
ball for two years.
Bobby O'Daniels—We're really
going to miss Bobby's kicking tal
ents next year. His educated toe
has scored many a field goal and
extra point in his four years of
football at Guilford. Bob has
played both end and halfback
well. His greatest games were
against East Carolina two years
ago and Catawba this year. Al
though we lost that East Carolina
game Bob's kicking and catching
rose above all other performances.
In the Catawba game Bob inter
cepted three passes and was, per
haps, the main cause of our vic
tory. This year Bob was chosen
alternate captain. He also played
two years on the Baseball Team.
David Wells —Wells is a dedi
cated athlete. He has been con
stantly improving since he's been
here. David, this year a starter and
a returning letterman from last
year, was chosen as co-captain.
He's termed "steady" and better
than most at his position of offen
Ed Williams —Cookie has been
playing football at Guilford for
four years now. Last year he was
given the Best Hustler Award.
Cookie is a leader, a fine, tough
running back and the kind of boy
a coach likes to have. This year
' ' i
he was hampered with injuries I
and did not see much action. He's
another one of those two sport
men, outstanding in track since his
Carl Hampton—For two years
Carl has patrolled Center Field in
great style. In that time few balls
have escaped the defensive ace.
This season he was out for three
weeks with a bad shoulder. One
look at the team's record shows
how much he was missed. Carl
was alternate captain this year.
He's a History major who soon
plans to teach.
Mickey Herrin Mickey has
been playing baseball at Guilford
for three years now. As a sopho
more he compiled a great 7-0 rec
| ord. Since then injuries have
! plagued him and he has never
been able to regain the form he
showed in 1961. Mickey is an Eco
nomics major from Monroe, N. C.
Lee Johnson —Lee came to Guil
ford as a transfer student from
Washington and Lee. He's played
here for three years and during
that time he has earned a reputa
tion as a superb infielder. Lee com
oletes the trio of injury troubled
j Seniors. He missed two weeks of
this season due to mononucleosis.
This year he was chosen as captain
of the Baseball Team. He's a good
all-around player who we're cer
tainly going to miss.
In Tennis the number one and
two men, Steen Spove and Montie
Milner are both leaving for Har
vard to do graduate work. Montie
has been playing for four years.
He's been called a scrapper and
1 fierce competitor by the coaches.
Joining the Harvard twins- on the
graduate list is Joe Benson. Many
upperclassmen remember the fine
j battles Joe and Steen had last year
is thev fought for fifth position on
u he team.
Walter Brown is the only gradu
ate of a new Soccer team. As a
starter in this, the team's first year,
Walter won recognition as an out
standing dribbler and offensive
THE GUILFORD IAN
George Benjamin, Tom Barnes,
Howard Braxton and Ernie Pascal
are the track graduates. George
high jumped this year and reached
a peak of six feet. In the recent
Carolinas Conference Meet he
came in third.
Brinley McDaniel is the lone
Golf graduate. This year he was
the team's number two man. He
has played basketball for Guilford.
Guilford Athletics is fortunate
in the fact that we are losing so
few athletes. Fourteen is a small
number in comparison to the
amount of rising Seniors we will
have next year. If we look the situ
ation over more closely, though,
we find we are not as secure as
we think. We are losing a lot of
key players. A tough lineman, a
kicker, a rough end and some great
defense, two great glove men and
a good pitcher, the first three men
on the tennis team, the number
two man of the golf team, a great
offensive soccer player and a high
jumper are going to be hard to re
The only team that will not
suffer is the basketball crew.
Grads, we're really going to
miss you. No kidding.

Jerry Steele, Guilford's elated
basketball coach, is proud to an
nounce the great success of his
spring basketball practice. The
constant scrimmages which have
been going on for the past few
weeks and the hard work of Coach
Steele have produced some of the
finest prospects Guilford has had
in recent years.
Upperclassmen Buddy Milks, a
two-hand dunker, and Punchy Fer
ris, an aggressive ball handler,
have been practicing with the
team and looking good. Charlie
Black of Greensboro and Chuck
Scott of East Carolina, two new
boys, should help Guilford in the
height department. The new boys
trying out for the backcourt are
Danny Curran, Bill's brother;
James Team, transfer from N. C.
State where he played freshman
ball; and Gary Halpern, a New
York basketball star.
