FOOTBALL - - Kickoff To Athleti P
Standing: li. V. Halt, Walter Willis, Ioe Rallo.
Sitting: Anton Iureziz, Roger Grove, Ray Iackson
The Alton High eleven under the back-
field coaching of Roger Grove and line
coaching of Ioe Rallo was sufficient evi-
dence that football power was again on
the upward path.
Starting off in fine stride under the
one letter coach Roger Grove, the Redbirds
gained victory number one from lVlcKin'ley
behind the touchdowns of Nicolet and
Buddy Hook. Defense proved exceptionally
strong and held the Bugs to only 52 yards
via both ground and air.
It may have been that the Alton boys
had their mind on the Illinois, UCLA
game up at Champaign as the host Maroons
and their deceptive T formation romped
through the Birds for 31 points. Altons
only score came in the 4th quarter when
Bill Nicolet bulled over from the 2 yard
stripe and then converted.
The Alton men began the conference
season by upsetting the Warriors of Granite
City with an 18-12 defeat. Virgil Hook,
lack Dresler, and Everett Wilson all figured
in the scoring.
With one conference victory under
their wing the Birds were out to get the
Oilers. But Fred Scharfs boys came to
Alton with a strong defense and a sharp
passing attack that held Alton to a 6-6 tie.
Virgil Hook scored Alton's only TD and
the ali important extra point failed.
The down-hearted fans received a sec-
ond jolt when the Redbirds dropped the
most exciting game of the season to Ed-
wardsville Tigers by the score of 20-19.
The extra point was again the difference
between victory and defeat.
