FOOTBALL - - Kickoff To Athleti P Standing: li. V. Halt, Walter Willis, Ioe Rallo. Sitting: Anton Iureziz, Roger Grove, Ray Iackson C lfOgIfafIl 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.

It seemed as though the Redbirds were down and out when they came home from East Side on the short end of a 27-13 score. Alton's scoring came in the fourth quarter when Buddy Hook scored from the four and was followed 4 plays later by brother Virgil. With Bill Hart toting the mail like a madman the Birds got back into the win- ning column by downing Belleville 12-6. Hart and Dresler snapped the Maroons seven game winning streak, Hart scoring from the fifteen and Dresler on a 35 yard jaunt. The Redbirds gained the second place spot in the conference by shaking Collins- ville 13-0. Virgil Hook and Bill Hart scored on long runs and Nicolet converted. Climaxing a hard fought season the Birds drove through the mud to a 19-O victory over W.lVl.A. Alton passes scored l3 of the 19 points. Iack Dresler, continu- ing to play good ball, caught all 3 point passes, two from Nicolet and one from Gene Kuhn.
