5:,,,ii,.ff 3........., The opening of the 1945 grid season found the Redbirds with only six returning lettermen. Only one of these was a backheld man. Nevertheless, with Jackson's efficient coaching the team took shape into a powerful squad. The first game was lost to Gillespie because some of the players had not yet found the position on the team where they could be of the most service. Charging the defeat up to good experience, Alton came back molded into both a strong offensive and a strong defensive team. Madison, Ed- wardsville, and Wood River fell in quick succession. Then came the toughest game of the year with East St. Louis. As usual, Alton was handicapped with much lighter-weight players, but their fighting spirit made up for this. The boys played a great game, but in the last few minutes of play, East Side scored the winning touchdown, and Alton was defeated by just 6 points. The Red- birds then easily overcame Belleville and went on to play Collinsville. Again the breaks were a- gainst them, and they lost by 1 point in the last 3 minutes of play. In the last conference game of the season, the Alton team conquered Granite City. Then came the big Thanksgiving Day game with Western Military Academy. It will be remembered as one of the coldest games ever played on Turkey Day. Both teams remained scoreless until late in the game, when a pass play set up a touchdown for Alton. Western was again defeated, 6 to O. If we look back on the 1945 squad's achievements, we are able to see what a wonderful team it was. lts conference record was marred only in about 5 minutes of play in the East Side and Collins- ville games. Taken as a whole, our 1945 football team is one we can all be proud of. Tenrenerr on the bench at E.:iu'ardwille
