Casear Hohn

Lineman Caesar Hohn was the team captain in 1911.

In coach Charley Moran's third season, the Aggies were led by captain lineman Caesar Hohn and back Tyree Bell. The school signed a deal to play Baylor on Thanksgiving for the next two seasons. It would be the first time in the school's history that a football game would be played at Kyle Field on the holiday. In the opener, the team defeated Southwestern 22-0, including an R.A. Kern touchdown. Against Austin College, the Aggies won 33-0, after scoring three touchdowns in the fourth quarter. After a shutout of favored Auburn, A&M took on Mississippi. Bell's 50-yard touchdown was the highlight of a 17-0 win at Kyle Field. The following week, A&M and Texas met in Houston, and the Horns shut down Hohn, Bell and the rest of the Aggie runners in a 6-0 defeat. The Horns' sole touchdown came in the second quarter when they capitalized on a fumble from A.R. Bateman. Texas informed A&M after the game that it would not resume the annual series, citing "the heated state of opinion among students and alumni of both institutions." They said they wouldn't continue the rivalry until Moran was fired because they believed he was using illegal players. UT officials were quoted in the Austin American-Statesman, saying "Moran must go." The Aggies closed out the season with wins over Baylor and Dallas Baptist. The team finished the year 6-1, having outscored their opponents 134-17.
