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 plav again. He
worked on the knee and became
one of our toughest ends. Tom
was chosen captain in this, his sen
ior yeur. His ability earned him
the Most Valuable Player Award
this vear 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 II o w a r d,
termed a "leader by the coaches,
has participated in three sports in

on the Football Team. This vear
lie was switched to a defensive
end. How aid also played Basket
ball for two years.
Bobby O'Daniels —We're really
going to miss Bobbys kicking tal
ents next vear. I lis educated toe
has scored many a field goal and
extra point in his four years ol
football at Guilford. Bob has
played both end and halfback
well. His greatest games were
against East Carolina two years
asjo 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 vear Bob was chosen
alternate captain. He also played
two vears 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
vear, was chosen as co-captain.
He's termed "steady and better

Curl 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 yeur.
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
nomies 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 lias earned a reputa
tion as a superb infielder. Lee com
pletes the trio of injury troubled
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 plaver who we're cer
tainly going to miss.
In Tennis the number one and
two men, Steen Spove and Montie
Mifner are both leaving for Har

has been plaving for four years.
He's been called a scrapper and

Guilford Athletics is fortunate
