Since most of us have taken a trip to Neverland, we decided to invite our hero
Peter Pan and some of his companions to visitAbbott Land. We want to show them our
administration and faculty, our students, our classrooms, clubs, and teams. We hope
they will be as impressed with the opportunities for learning and fun in our land as we
were with our glorious adventures in Neverland.

The 1953 Abbott ninth grade football team, coached by Mr. Block, enioyed a most successful
season . Starting slowly in their first game, narrowly winning by a score of 7 - 6, they rolled on
to 5 wins, 0 losses, and l tie. This was the first undefeated season Abbott has had in some time.
No player can be singled out as responsible for the successful season as the victories were the
result of team play and team work. In the offensive line Keith Carlson, Herm Rehberg, Dave
Jensen, Ray Holmquist, Jim Morton, Tom Theis, and Jerry Cooper did outstanding work opening
up holes for the backs, Roy Rasmussen, Roger Karsten, Jim Payne, Dick Partridge, and Ben Royer.
Defensively, Jack Cirrincione, John Carter, Ron Swain, and Jim Shales helped plug up many
openings to keep our opponents from scoring.
This Abbott team will be remembered as one of the finest this school has ever produced, and
we are awaiting the coming of the next season to see them in action at Maroon field playing for
Elgin High .

This year's football squad, coached by Mr. Hulmes, became one ofthe finest eighth
grade teams we have had in recent years. There were over thirty boys who played in at
least one of the four games .
The season's opener was a rather disappointing game which was lost by a score of 6-0 to
Larsen . The team then rolled rather easily over Ellis twice and met Larsen in the final game
of the season . A win in this game would have meant a share of the city championship. After
an exciting and hard-fought game in which fumbled kick-offs and penalties at crucial
points plagued the Abbott team, the score was 7 - 7.

The squad numbered forty-seven boys when practice started in the fall . The boys were
all eager pupils and tried hard to learn their plays in time for our first game with Larsen.
We lost that game in the closing seconds ofthe first half when Larsen scored their sole
touchdown. The boys then hittheir stride and rolled over Ellis in their next two games. The
final game of the season was a sound defeat when we bowed to Larsen 25-O. '1
