eam to E-3 Year-
The Benson Techmen were the first team in the P.l.L. to
introduce the highly acclaimed wishbone "T" offensive
formation. It worked well as their 6-3-0 record showed.
Outstanding offensive efforts were given by senior
quarterback and most valuable player Dave Labrousse, junior
fullback Mac McCall and junior halfback Howard Moore, who
scored five T.D.s throughout the season.
Benson's defense, thought to be one of the top ten in the
state by the coaching staff, proved it by picking up four first
team all-city honors and holding their opponents to an average
of 6.4 points per game. They also held the cities top two
teams, Wilson and Marshall, to only 14 points each, lower than
any other team in the state.
ABOVE: Being a speedy halfback isn't always a star studded, glamorous role
as Howard Moore can tell you after suffering a broken ankle on this play. TOP

screams directions to his defensive squad. FAR RIGHT: The Benson Techmen
run through a spirit ring and onto the field! RIGHT: Michael Thomas... a
brilliant future ahead.
