Oslcan REYNOLDS, senior played his third year as
a regular in the Red Bird linefup. Osker def
veloped skill in both starting and receiving passes
and the season of 1936 found Osker on one end
or the other of many passes tried by Alton High
Reynolds said It IS awfully hard to pick my
greatest thrill but for 1936 it came near the end
of the second quarter in the game with Western
when Fat threw a pass back of the 35 yard
line which I received in the end zone the touch
down that broke Western s tight
WILBUR HAND senior played his second season
as a regular having seen some service in 1934
when he started some games at the close of the
season and playing full time with the Steam
Roller crew of 1935 Dutch had come close
to a regular starting assignment in the entire
season of 1934 My greatest thrill came in
the game with Western on Thanksgiving Day
1936 when we came out victorious for the sixth
consecutive year With this victory there was
an anti climax too my last high school football
RALPH SPURGEON senior started the season in
the line and started with a bang that kept op
ponents on the alert to stop a dash here and
there If Spurg had broken into the starting
line up earlier in his school career more would have
been heard of him Spurgeon said My thrill
started in football when coach told me I was
in the starting line up and when I intercepted a Cleveland pass and ran for a touchdown my thrill
W as doubled
FRANCIS DOYLB senior got his chance to play a complete season Rather light in weight Doyle
had to call on speed to help him out of his back field problems Speaking for himself Doyle
said In my first game I was to return punts that fell in my territory Then came a punt right
at me I saw the ball and I saw eleven men coming right at me I put out my arms to catch
the ball but it sailed over my head My 'embarrassment and coach s disappomtment

Rocizks FARLBY, senior, played regular as soon
as he got in shape due to a few days of school
going by before he enrolled. Farley made up
in speed and determination wh'1t he may have
licked in weight. Rogers s'1id My greatest
thrill c'1me in the Western game when I realized
that we were slowly but surely wearing Western
down 'md beginning to '1pply our sixth Alton
High football victory in '1s m'1ny years. The
final gun made that 1810 score a real thrill.
WILLIAM BILL FORRESTER senior had enough
natural athletic ability together with good coach'
ing to come through as a regular in his hrstf
one 1nd only ye1r out for footb1ll Bill said
If I h1d known football w1s so much fun Id
h1ve gone out sooner I reilized the thrill one
gets when 1 te 1111 mate kicks a held go1l since
Fat turned this trick for us in the Collinsville
game It was a real thrill to see th1t ball sail
oxer the b1r
OTIS LANGFORD senior and another boy who
delayed his coming out for football until his
senior ye1r Otis hid what it takes to stick
on the squ 1d day after day when he seldom got
into 1 game Lingford didnt squawk because
he knew boys who had a year or two left in
school had hrst call Then three days before
the Western game ones iniured his leg Otis
said Naturally I was eager to pl1y against
Western but sorry Tommy w1s hurt It was
1 thrill to me to give 1ll I h1d in this one game of my high school footb1ll career
TOMMY oNEs junior playing his second se1son of high school football showed up well and
following th it 1ll powerful back held of 35 was no easy tisk ones had been 1 part of that last
championship crew long enough to know what to do Tommy s biggest thrill of the season To
ward the close of the first half of the Western game when Fat faded back and heaved a pass to
Oskey Reynolds who took the ball in the end zone for 1 touchdown Boy that one was real
