Basketball and Baseball at Central 1908-1909

Author:

Graduated from Central in 1965. Had the honor of being Mr. Central 1965. Started on the Central Basketball Team for three years and was a member of the Track Team in my senior year. Shared command with Bryant Millsaps of the Central JROTC unit in my senior year. Other activites at Central are documented in the 1963 -1965 Champions. Received an athletic scholarship and played Division I College Basketball for four years. When I graduated from Auburn in 1969, I was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the Army Adjutant General Corps and served 25 years on active duty, retiring in 1994. Some of the military awards I earned include the Legion of Merit, one Meritorious Service Medal for Achievement, six Meritorious Service Medals for Service, Joint Service Medal for Achievement, two Army Commendations Medals, and Viet Nam Service Medal. After retirement in 1994, I became a Real Estate Broker until my second retirement in 2010. I am passionate about Central History and am pleased to be Administrator of this Blog/Site.

  1. In the last sentence, I omitted Earnest Morrison, who also graduated in 1909 & went on to play college baseball at Vanderbilt. Earnest’s brother Douglas Morrison, the catcher, graduated in 1910 & played baseball collegiately at Georgia Tech as did another 1909 grad, Hawley Cushman. The hero of the game, Gaston, did not graduate from Central.
