A season that could have been so close, but proved to be so far away spelled a 3-6 record for the
1977 Alton Redbirds' football team.
First-year coach Wayne Williams built a solid defense that wound up second overall in the final
Southwestern Conference picture, but the inability to produce points in the clutch was the telling
factor for the Redbirds. '
In the Birds' six losses, five of the games were decided by seven points or less. In all five of those
games, Alton scored either one touchdown or less.
Following back-to-back wins against Quincy and Cahokia, the Redbirds were 2-1 at one point in the
season. However, a heartbreaking 10-7 loss at Edwardsville in which a controversial call at the end of
the game cost Alton a win, was the turning point of the season.
The Birds were to finish 1-5 and sixth in the Southwestern Conference. Players to receive
Southwestern Conference honors included: Gilbert joehl, Tony Willis, Mark Dunlap, Lloyd fRustyJ
Bilbruck, Bill Netzhammer, Karry Wilson, Scott Somlar, and Pete Wyatt.
joining Williams in the Birds' coaching staff for 1977 were: Felix Macias, jack Martin, Terry Mitchell,
jim Arico, and Collis james.
With a fine sophmore team C7-4l waiting in the wings, the Birds hope to complete their rebuilding
program next year and reverse their 1977 record.
