winning a place on the allfconference team he

where I threw the ball-a completed pass on
my first attempt.

self for the fumble in the Eist St Louis game
DOUGLAS Hursn junior pliying his Hrst season

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

football Lettermen il,
CARL BAILEY, junior, playing his hrst regular
season in the backfield gave a good account of
his previous year's training when much of this
year's team served as the scrimmage group to
oppose the '35 "Steam Roller" Championship
eleven. Bailey said, "I used to think it great
to be on the squad that played against "Fat."
My biggest thrill came when I found I had won
a chance to start with Harrison on the Hrst team."
CHARLES TACKWELL, sophomore, 135 pounds and
the lightest man to hold the center position in
the history of present day athletics of Alton
High was playing his Hrst season of high school
football and did a line piece of work Charlie
too found a thrill in football He said In the
Collinsville game when Fat called for a punt
formation to try for a field goal I was excited
but got a pass back that was set up and Fat s
toe put the bill over the bar for 3 points
BILL BUND yunior was ilso playing his second
season on the squad and got into enough battles
to win both his spurs and a letter Bill should
be a regular fixture in next vear s line A little
more height and weight this year would have
put Bill into the regular starting line up A
Bill looked over the football season yust closing
he said The biggest thrill of the season is aw
fully hard to name There were many thrills BAILEY TACKWELL
but Ill pick the Granite City game although we BUND BROWN
ROBERT BROWN junior playing his first season drew a place in the line and did a good iob of it
being dependable and reliable along with ability to take it as well as dish it out In other words
Brown fitted into the scheme of things on defense as well as offense A year to grow in both
height and weight will make Brown a tougher guy to stop than he was this year I do not know
that I can pick out any single play of the season that was the most thrilling The entire season
was a thrill to me
