The Centenary Gentlemen football team represents the Centenary College of Louisiana. The school's teams are known as the Gentlemen or 'Gents'. They have not competed in football since 1941.[1] It last competed as a member of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association.


The 1927 team coached by Homer H. Norton was one of the school's best ever teams,[1] posting an undefeated 10–0 record.

Centenary fielded college football teams until 1941. The Centenary football team was discontinued for the duration of World War II due to budget deficits, and declining fan interest. An attempt to reinstate the football program was halted in 1947.[1]
