football Lettermen il, 1 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 lost 1213 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 X. -es-"WX 61 ' 9 , " . . . . ,, . 9 ' 1 . - .t -- tt 1 Q1 I Y - it L . , , ' 2 . . . , ' ' .
