The 1972 Freshman Football team numbered 92 members
and saw a season marked by victory and defeat. The victories
came from the "B" team in the form of a 5-O-O season record.
Giving up only eight points in five games and shutting-out their
opponents four times, the "B" squad amassed a total of 70
points for an average of 14 points per game.
The "A" squad. lacking a powerful and explosive line made
up this weakness by producing two outstanding wishbone "T"
running backs. Vern Marshall, voted the most valuable running
back, and Dan Schindler, both of whom were moved up to the
varsity squad in the later part of the season, were the men who
sparked the Tech offense.
Their 2-4-1 season record shows a dismal view of what
really happened on the field for 48 minutes.

The J.V.'s trudged their way through a disappointing 1-6-1
season. The J.V. coaching staff was met with the task of
forming a successful squad with the limited personnel they
had. Although the J.V.'s suffered defeat more often than
victory, there were some outstanding individuals. Mario
Scarpino, a running back, and Jon Currier a guard, were voted
as the Most Valuable Players for the '72 season. Other notable
J.V.'s were Victor Usher, Greg Thomas and Dave Sampson
