Nathan, by reason of strict ad. herence of training rules and his desire to put forth his best efforts for the glory of his team and his school, was, from the beginning a strong contender for the covet-" ed prize. His sportsmanship, and his kindly attitude toward his i oach and teammates has made him a favorite among the student body who rejoice with him in the honor which has thus been bestowed. He has truly "worked hard" and his play has contributed much toward the fine success of the season just ended. Nathan is a fine example to young football aspirants, what needs more to be said. !
