Temple U Names
Negro Captain
By MALCOLM POINDEXTER
PHILADELPHIA (ANP) —
Temple university’s football squad
Was week named the first Xegro
co-cefitain in team history with the
ek lion of halfback Tex Robinson
for the 1954 campaign.
The selection was announced by
head coach A1 Kawal who des
cribed Robinson as “one of the
best backs be lias ever coached."
“Tex lias been under my wing
since he came to Temple,” said
Kawal proudly, “aiul I think he's
one of the greatest players I've
ever seen. Not only is he one of
the outstanding football players in
, the East but also in the country."
Robinson, who lives in Bridge
ton, N. j., missed the greater part
of the 1953 campaign because of a
foot injury. Now that the injury
has healed. Tex will begin his
closing year and collegiate athletic
PAGE 8
career that *a\v him lead the Owls
in scoring his •-•ph campaign with
45 points on 'even fouchdowns and
three extra points.
Tex was rated die greatest
Negro athlete to enter Temple
'in' e tlie t retit Kulace Peacock, a
track star of a decade ago. 11 i s
reputation was largely built on
♦.lie fact that Robinson, a graduate
of Bridgeton High School, had
earned four letters — excelling in
football, baseball, basketball and
1 rack.
He was only a sophomore when
lie made the varsity basketball and
baseball teams, and a mere fresh
man when he broke in on the var
sity grid squad.
“Football is my true love,” says
the senior star who has become the
talk of the Temple campus, ‘‘and
die fellows’ll never know how much
1 appreciate being named co
captain.”
With Robinson in the co-pilot
spot will be guard Jim Cloney.
WILLIE MAYS ONE OF BASEBALL’S
MOST POPULAR PLAYERS
With the Giants winning the World Series, Willie Mays
the "Say Hey Kid” from Fairfield, Ala. thus became of baseball's
most popular baseball players in the World today. Although it
was Dusty Rhodes big blows that helped the Giants go on to
win the 1954 World Championship, it was the amazing Willie
Mays who made one of the greatest catches of all times to
captivate the crowd at the famous Polo Grounds in the open
ing game.
Monty Irvin, Willie’s room mate, says that the Say Hey
Kid never worried when he was in a hitting Slump and he
would always say “That tomorrow comes no matter what I
do about it”.
Willi#* QClifl tiff#*!1 tVlO nwniino1 rr o iyi r\ on/1 OTrovtrnno e
talking to him about that great catch. “They hit ’em and I
catch ’em.”
It is Bob Williams, business magnet of Birmingham who
has been one of Willie's fathers, that is, he has helped Willie
when he was playing with the Birmingham Black Barons,
Bob says that Willie loves the game so that he would play
almost for nothing just so he is playing baseball. That is
why he is one of the games greatest competitors.
He has signed to play winter baseball in Puerto Rico this
coming winter. But before he leaves the city of Fairfield,
Ala., will roll out the red carpet for a homecoming celebration.
A Tough Tackle
BEAUREGARD PAYNE. 209 pound tackle with the A & T
College Aggies, figures prominently in the defensive plans for
the team during the current season. The hustling sophmore
has already demonstrated in the early season game that he
is about as rough and tough as they come.
Payne hails from Charlottsville, Va.
