Game Promises Thrilling Session With one of the largest opening day crowds in many years expected, G. M. C. will prize the lid off the 1928 football season Friday after noon, having the Cochran Aggies, one of the strongest teams in the South ern part of the state as the opposi tion. Cochran having played their open ing game last Friday defeating the Lanier High team, loom up as danger ous foes for the cadet eleven in their baptism for this year. They come to Milledgeville rated as the best in South Georgia. They come classed as the strongeyt contenders for the state title that South Georgia has to •offer. They come a powerful eleven of seasoned men, fast and furious to continue their march to a champion ship and they don’t mean for the red and black eleven to put a black mark across it. Coach Broadnax, Rentz, et al.. have wasted no time in developing the nia. terial they have. Daily scrimmages have been the order of things all thi.y week,and it has been no res! the squad on Davenport field. Injuries have been a big handicap to the Coaches thus far. Sore clcs, and twisted joints have caused mentors a bit of worry and it is with sleepless nights that they face the opening game. All varsity are expected to start in the opening game however and Milledgeville fans can rest assured they will see a flashy team in the field. A wealth of backs are at the disposal of the coaches and probably all of them will have the oppor:unity to show their stuff. Rich, Wynne, Gunnells aud Kanupp will probabiy be used to start with, Roberson. Wilson. Guill, Forse and a few more held for the second round. Capt. Fat Smith will lead the team on the field, playing tackle with Minor, Roberts, Prince, Crunibley, Beck and Huigdon making up the rest of the line. The game begins at 3:30 and the admission is seventy-five cents. The new athletic field will be opened to the public for the first time and it is supposed it will be filled.
