Lee's march to the state finals in football last fall, announced today they will enter the University of Texas on athletic scholarships next September. Spence, a stockily-built 5-foot, 11-inch lad, has been described by Gander Line Coach Pete Sultis as the best close-in blocker on the great 1951 team. He lettered two years at guard, and played both, offense and defense, making all- district and honorable mention for all-state last year. Spence was an ail-around student at Lee high. He had an 87 average during ms high school career. He has been active in student council work. Spence is the son of Mrs. Dollie Spence, 503 West DeFee. • Gray is one of the most celebrated schoolboy griders in the state. His services were sought by every Southwest Conference school in Texas, and numerous other colleges. The 6-foot, 1-inch boy is a terrific downfield blocker, and from his tackle position he usually led the ball carrier on end runs. He's exceptionally fast for a big man, and played-both, offense and defense for Lee. Every honor that could come to a schoolboy gridder was heaped on Gray last season. He made all- district, all-state, all-Southern, and all-American. Gray lettered two years at Lee, and his greatest years in football are believed to be ahead of him. He has accepted an invitation to play in the Greenbelt Bowl game at Childress, Texas, in August, and has filled out an application to play in the North-South all-American game at Memphis, Tennessee, later the same month. Gray also is a good student, finishing up with an 84 average. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. John Gray, 220 Bast Pearce. .The founded Buddhist religion about 520 B.C.
