Transcript maintenance staffer B. Lewis Wilson to produce a wireless account of a 0-0 tie between the Aggies and Texas Longhorns in football. That was followed by the first actual radio broadcast of an SWC game on Nov. 25,1926, when General Ike Ashburn gave the play-by-play account of A&M's 28-0 victory over Texas at College Station. Game officials and their orderly assignment became a part of the SWC Office in the 1920's along with cooperation with the Southwest Officials Association, a longtime partner of the SWC, while legislation governing scouting of opponents went into effect during the 1927-28 academic year. Conference Presidents, In Ordenpf Service One of the greatest track & field athletes of all time, Carl Lewis attended the University of Houston. *$** University of Texas alum Jill Sterkel was a member of four U.S. Olympic teams and is now a Longhorn coach. The first of several hundred SWC competitors in the Olympic Games (42 SWC athletes, two head coaches, six individual and team medals were earned in the Seoul Olympics of 1988 while close to 60 competitors from SWC schools qualified for the 1992 Olympics) was a meritorious sprinter on the United States' 1928 team - Rice's Claude Bracey. As the conference moved into the 1930s and 1940s, growing and maturing programs in all areas - from track and field to baseball to tennis to swimming - were taking shape for the seven teams who survived the comings and goings and formed the crux of the SWC until Texas Tech entered in 1958. Houston later gained admission into the SWC for the 1972-73 academic year (competing for the first time in football in 1976), and the SWC enjoyed 1914-1915-W. T. Mather Texas 1915-1916-A.C.

Hatchell some of its most nationally-successful football seasons (four wire service national championships from 1963-70) since SMU, TCU and Texas A&M captured American college grid titles from 1935- 39. The settling effect brought with it the need to have a full-time office, headed by an Executive Secretary (later re-titled Commissioner). In 1938 Dr. P.W. St. Clair assumed a part-time position as the SWC's first Executive Secretary and served in that position until May, 1945. He was followed by James H. Stewart (1945-50, the conference's first full-time Executive Secretary), Howard Grubbs (1950-73), Cliff Speegle (1973-82), and fourth full-time Commissioner Fred Jacoby (1982-93) before Steven J. Hatchell. The SWC maintains the oldest continuous contractual agreement (since 1942) with a major bowl game between the conference and the Cotton Bowl Athletic Association. This gridiron marriage has produced numerous battles for national supremacy and an always-entertaining contest on New Year's Day since the initial contest in 1937. From football legends such as Hall-of-Famers Darrell Royal of Texas, Jess Neely of Rice, Madison 'Matty' Bell of four SWC schools, and Frank Broyles of Arkansas to Baseball Hall of Fame member Teddy Lyons of Baylor to Olympic champions such as Houston's Carl Lewis to 1992-93 Women's Basketball Player of the Year Sheryl Swoopes of national champ Texas Tech, the Southwest Conference continues to produce exciting moments in intercollegiate athletics.
