Charles J. Gilbert

Still regarded as one of the most versatile athletes in Louisiana Tech athletic history, this native of Winnfield, La., was one of the school's few four-sport lettermen. He lettered in all four sports and two years in three sports to finish with 10 varsity letters. An outstanding running back, Gilbert was particularly effective for the undefeated team of 1931. The team went 7-0 and scored 167 points of which Gilbert scored 86. An outfielder for baseball, he also participated in track and was the conference broad jump champion in 1932, helping Tech win the league championships. Also very active in other school activities, Gilbert was a member of Who's Who, Vice-President of the T Club in 1930, and Vice-President of his senior class.
