Jennifer.....Thank you for working on this for me. I think you are the third person to work on this. Too bad, because the first two people got paid, by me, and I never got a real answer from them. So....I am hesitent to click on 'accept answer' this early. I am hoping you will understand.......Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX
OK! Here is what I received from Baylor:
Unfortunately, there is no yearbook for 1899 or 1900. The earliest yearbook we have is 1896. The yearbooks pick up again in 1902.
But I have been able to track down the info you need. I found a photograph of the 1899 team. On the back, they identify the players by last name only. They are: Slaughter, Phillips, Moore, Alexander, Fisher, Benevides, Dodson, Cranfill, Patterson, Tyler, Allen, McLendon, Slaughter, Timmons, Talley, East, Wilson, Garrett, McCrary, and Davis.
I think I can identify the players first names from the old catalogs, if you like. However, it will take me a little longer to get this info to you.
I'm attaching a copy of our photocopy form. If you'd like for me to send a scan of the photo, please read over the form, fill it out in its entirety and either mail (Attn: Amie Oliver, The Texas Collection, One Bear Place #97142, Waco, TX 76798) or fax (254.710.1368). I shall send the item as soon as I get your completed form. When filling out the form, indicate that the item is a photograph of the 1899 Baylor football team.
Let me know if you have any questions.

What I am wondering is if "Timmons" is actually "Simmons"! Here is a link to the form she references in case you want to get a copy of the photo CLICK HERE.
I hope it is him! Thanks and good luck!
