RAY L. JACKSON
Director of Atbleticr, Football Coach, Bqyr' Counrellor
Mr. Ray Jackson, our director of athletics, has achieved an enviable record during e seventeen
years that he has coached our football teams. Five championship teams have been coached by Mr.
Jackson, those of1933, 1934, 1935, 1939, and 1944. The teams of1933, 1935 and 1939 were undefeated.
All of his other teams since 1931 have managed to finish in the upper division, with only one ex-
ception, and Jackson-coach rd teams have defeated Western Military Academy the last fourteen times.
He has developed such all-state football players as Sonny Schuessler, Leroy Harrison, Archie
Kodros, Victor Schwartz, Joe Naughton, and Bob Astroth.
A record such as this naturally rates him as one of the outstanding coaches of the state.
He was appointed Boys' Counsellor last year in addition to his coaching duties. The boys of
Alton High School are indeed fortunate to have a man of Mr. 'Iackson's experience and understanding
to assist them in solving their problems.
