Who's Who In Football—No. is

STRANGE BEHAVIOR OF A CENTRE MAN
By H. A, de LACY
IF down Richmond way, don't be surprised at the antics of a young Tiger. Maybe he'll run full tilt at a goal post. Just as one is all set to gather the wreckage he swerves and misses it by inches. He runs at another player. Is-it with malice aforethought? No. . Again he swerves safely past. He's enthusiastic in all these crazy things, too; loves every minute of his strange behavior. The culprit is Ray Stokes, Richmond's new centre, indulging in his favorite pastime—training for football.

LEAGUE FOOTBALLERS OF 1950 - THE MEN IN THE CENTRE By PERCY TAYLOR

Argus 3-Jun-1950 p6-7 Weekend Magazine

RAY STOKES, a Tasmanian, has done a grand job for Richmond since he came from the north-west of Tasmania for his first game in 1946.

Stokes was immediately placed on the senior list, because his form was known, and he is one of the best players to come from Tasmania. He is particularly good in the wet probably because he has had so much experience of it in Tasmania. He is adept at the short punt pass, which he learnt from Jack Dyer, and is also a good drop kick. In training, he runs backwards, sideways, and baulks all of which he learnt from Jack Broadstock, the former South Australian.

Ray is an amateur boxer of note, and still boxes at a city gymnasium for exercise. After football training he does ten minutes or so of ball punching. He is also a good cricketer, and has played senior cricket, but he found that it clashes with football so cricket is out, except for games ' with the juniors.
