, NOVRMRRR f$, If There's Any Way To Pul Hope Ahead He'll Try It H.v .1. I'. KHIMKI) One of tlic main reasons—other llirm Hie fact that Vasco Bright i:; physically fit and ready for action—why (lie Hope Bobcats should be feared in Friday night's hat- He with the Chickasaivs is the (act that Foy Hammcns will be sitting on Die vislior-'i bench. Just in ca:.e tile name ha;; escaped memuy, Foy Hammons is at present head eoa :1> cf tlie Hope Hcbcats. Hi' has b.'U, doing Hill sort cf thm'4 for almost twenty years ami has a distinct habit of turning oat winners. Rated during his ac'.ive days as one of the r.cst athletes ever turned out in Ihe stat;. Mammons has scaled even pi-catJr heights as a coach. Kc is almost in a c:a.-c; by lilm- ;clf within the -state and has received national acclaim by \irtue cf his pi-i-rtucts. Nineteen state, two tri-stale. and cue nalicr-al championship in 17 different branches of sport is tribute enough lo Hammons' skil r.r-.d genius at producing. On the other occasions his clubs were ai-.vavs in the thick of the fight and mads a capable showing. Under the direction o! CoacI llammoiis Hope has risen Iron an obscure small school with prac- tienlly no athletics to one of the front liners. In 1953. his first y<ar. the Bobcats won 26 basketball games and lost but seven His griririers broke even in U rames. Last year Ihr.y won nine tied one and lost one. Eo far this season they have won 5. lost two. Was I'rei.- Star lii.s athletic (lays date back more tilan iwo decades, bm each year finds him craftier than ever. At little Hock high lie won eight letters in four sports, basketball, fcctball, track and baseball. He enrolled in ths Jonesboro Agricultural and Mechanical College (now Arkansas State College) in 1915 and in his first year was chosen as fullback on the all-state first team which was named from nH cclUgcs and the University. .Arkansas A. & M. won the stale rngc championship Uic Iwo years he .\\-as there, the lanky athlete playing no small part in the Iri- iimplis. Alter, his graduation from the junior college, he selected the University of Indiana lo complete his education. It was interrupted after one year by the World War. lie captained the Hoosier fresh basketball team and was alternate captain on the grid squad. For 22 molitlis he served with ll.c A. E. P., and upon his discharge in May. 1919. returned to his /Uinu Mater as head conch. Makes Collegiate History .Hammons' Jonesboro A. & M. teams of '19 and '20 were perhaps the greatest in school history. The Indians won 8 and lost H. Tlie basketeers captured 10 and lost half as many. He introduced baseball, his nine winr ning 6 and Icsing five. Fan:; of Pine Bluil were clam- orh.r for a winner and selected the popular leadfr as their "Mcs- rs." He proved the right to the title for in five years at the helm of the Zebras IhJ Juncrs ami seniors took 13 championships. They reached their peak in W25 by being acclaimed national champions by defeating Baytoii. Ohio. The Zrbrns' record under Hammons uas 58 victories. 4 losses, and Iwo ties. The Juniors took high honors in Jhcir basketball division in '22. •L>; and '25. His senior quintet won UO ond lost but 20 under his regime. They won flic tri-states tournaments in Memphis in 1925 and '20. ai.ri ranked fourth at Chl- cf.KO in the 'ipUonal. He t"ck his crack track squad !o Chicago and placed fifth in a meet in which 28 states were represented. They annexed the state title in TS. Creates Zebra Setup Hammcns is generally credited with the Pjuc Blufl athletic setup dial lias continued Ion? after !',!• departed. 1'nc next five years were spent at Ouachita College, during which ilir Tigers v.on 31 and lost 6. :>nd tied 3. They were declared champs in '2C. and were co-claim- iinls with Henderson Stall Teach- ers the following season. The (rack teams of '29, '30 and '31 ranked first In tlie state, nnd his basketball lives won 59 and lest 33, winning the championship In '27 nnd '28. Ke moved over to Monlicello in the fall of '31 and continued to wield his nmgfc, producing ccn- sistcnt winners hi all brandies of major sports and raising the Moll Wcvils to the front. Yes sir, this Hammons guy is u modern Midas. Everything >- kudus turns to gold—wii..,,,,,, geld. And if lhe Chickasaws aren't extremely careful they loo may l:c listed among the- "also runs." If Foy can possibly bring his charges home in front you can bank on him doing it. lie (r, no rcs|>:clor of persons or football teams or football records BLYTHEVILLB, (ARK.)'
