LITTLE ROCK, Ark.—Members of the 1949 Little Rock Junior College football team received rings for their outstanding accomplishments including winning the Junior College Rose Bowl in a ceremony Thursday at the Jack Stephens Center.

 

Athletes, family members, and guests gathered in the Legends Room to reminisce about the incredible season of the 1949 team.

 

Those who received rings included:  Bob Sullenger, Stanley Goldberg, Mac Doublin, Dr. Bill Floyd, Mickey O’Quinn, Bill Sneed, Ruth Keopple on behalf of husband C.W. Keopple, Nick Denson on behalf of grandfather Harry Denson, Russell and Mark Troillett on behalf of Ralph Troillett, and Eleanor Karam on behalf of husband and head coach Jimmy Karam.

 

The undefeated 1949 Little Rock Junior College football blazed through their season winning the Little Rock Shrine Bowl to earn the right to represent the East at the fourth annual Junior Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif..  The Trojans defeated the Santa Ana Dons 25-19.

 

The team was lead by Jimmy Karam who took the reigns of head coach in 1947 and led the Trojans to a victory in the Coffee Bowl in 1947 and a spot in the Junior Sugar Bowl in 1948. 

 

On February 11, 2006, the 1949 team was inducted into the UALR Sports Hall of Fame and was recognized during the UALR vs. Savannah State basketball game.
