THURSDAY, DECtiMBEPv 3, 193G BLYTJIEVILLE (AKK.) COURIER NEW& Win ning Plays of 193(5 Max Scored Most Touchdowns; Russell Gainec Most Yardage i!y J. T. FlllENl) To Max Hulchins and Russell Mosley goes the honor of leading tlie offense of the Blytheville Chiekasaws during the 1936,season thai closed in Memphis last \vcek with the heart-breaking 7-0 defeat by the Ijee High Generals of • Columbus, Miss., the first to turn the trick hi 29 games extending over a three-year period. The Manila flash topped ths backs in scoring, with 85 points, while Mosley's 1304 lotal yardage gained far exceeded any other ball carrier on thj club. Hiitchins' score card showed 14 touchdowns and one extra point. j lie registered a touchdown against f I'aragould, two against Walnut " Ridge, four against Newport and Searcy, and three against Forrest City. The extra point came against Newport. LoRoy (Broncho) Brown had nine touchdowns and eight extra points for 62. Mosley crossed into pay dirt nine times and added un extra, point. Captain Byron "The Ripper" walker's forty-foui points were a result of seven touchdowns and two line plunges. Homer Besharse was fifth with 32, or five touchdowns aiid two extra points. Dan Warrington and Robert "Bunny" Scott pushed over two touchdowns. Jamas Burton, tackle, and James "Bab" Roberts, end, had one each. Alfred "Slick". Meredith bucked over five points. "Gcscl" 'Consistent Russell carried the oval 1GO times and lost only 137 yards while amassing his tremendous yardage He averaged 7.0 yards every time he lugged the leather which was best among the regulars. \Robert Scott's average was 8.8 but only on 20 tries. No accurate record was kept oil the return of punts, kickoffs, etc., but it is safe to say .that the younger member of the Mosley family gained at least DUO yards more during the ten game schedule. At Searcy he picked up a punt on the 5 yard line and galloped 95 for a score, the longest run of a Blytheville player during the year. "Gesel" was consistent .' throughout the campaign. Only J Columbus, Forrest. City, Jonesboro, • and Walnut Ridge held him to less • •. than" "a net 100 yards. He "enjoyed a fleld night at the expense of_lhe f-0? ALABAMA /N 14-6 OV£f?'VANDF.??8IL-T.
