Tech Has B-1 Season.
Plays In Cfcy Pmals
Tech is what it was in the P.l.L. The other teams they played
weren't. Its iust that simple. They went undefeated in eight
games. Their victims were Pendleton, Jefferson, Roosevelt,
Wilson, Lincoln, Washington, Jackson, and Cleveland. All of
these games were won by convincing scores.
Looking at statistics, Benson gained 2,676 yards on the
offense, their opponents gained 1,060 yards. First downs,
Benson - 128, opponents - 70. Total returned yardage lkick-offs,
punts, fumbles, interceptionsj, Benson - 505, opponents - 791.
This statistic indicates that Benson was kicking the ball away on
kick-offs more than any other team they played which means
more points and that leads to an undefeated season.
The top three scorers for the Techmen were Jeff Bartunek -
107, Steve Kienberger - 36, and Dan Schindler - 35.
Rushing lead was held by Steve Kienberger who had 1,042 on
139 carries. He averaged 7.5 yards per carry, had 49 first

for 241 yards.
Jeff Bartunek gained 712 yards on 116 carries. He averaged
6.1 yards per carry and contributed 35 first downs and 17 TD's.
.Ieff's best night came against the Tribe at Civic Stadium for 138
Michael Lowe toted the ball ,163 times for 434 yards. He
averaged 6.9 yards per carry, gained 17 first downs, and
contributed five touchdowns.
In the passing department Bill Garlington attempted 33
passes, completed 14 of them for 211 yards and three TD's.
Duncan Davis played once against Roosevelt and only
attempted one pass, which was incomplete.

21 assists. Mark Fermenick brought down the enemy eight times
and assisted 17 times. Rudy Daniels had 13 solos and seven

assisted on eight.
Also standing out for the radar was Larry Marbott with 27
tackles. He also assisted on 36.
Springer had 20 originals and 24 assists. Schindler helped
on 19 and had 17 of his own. Tom Dodd nailed down 17 and
also helped on 14. Vern Marshall tackled 12 enemy runners and
assisted in pulling down 11. Ken McGee, a sure all-stater, had
32 solos and assisted on 35.
Enough said! The Techmen were fantastic, super, and virtually
breathtaking to watch. From sportswriters on down, all agreed
that the "mean" Tech machine was awsome.
This season the entire team filled out a card on what they
wanted as their goals for the season. To a man, they wanted the
Tech team to be the best in the State.
Coach Lopez promoted team spirit until it overcame most
quiet people and they found themselves on their feet.
Team and school spirit was strong clear up to the PlL
Championship. Michael Lowe had some amusing quirks and
team cheers for the delight of the team and pep assembly
