With a patched lineu and Lady Luck playing against them in most of their games, our 1957
edition of the B.H.H.S. football team finished the season with a not too im ressive record. On the
basis of games won and lost the season was almost a total loss, but the fgllowers of the Orange
and Black need not fear that the 1957 Tigers were a disgrace to the proud records of former B. H.
teams. Although playing under severe handicaps they never lost heart. They were named by many
critics as the scrappiest, fighten'est team in the conference. True, they lost the majority of their
lgirmes, but they went down lighting to the end in every one, never giving up until that last whistle
As an example of the sort of breaks our team got, we shall witness the Grand Haven game.
Early in the game we had the ball on the Grand Haven 1 yard line. On the next play we went
over but fumbled, and Grand Haven recovered. Result, no touchdown. In the third quarter our
hardest blow of the season hit us, Phil Skuda, our star punter, was injured and had to leave the
game. Skuda was out for the rest of the season. As a result we had no experienced punter. Grand
Haven took advantage, blocked one of our punts, and went over for a score. Needless to say, we
lost that game.
The opening game of the season played in mud and rain saw the Tigers defeat Niles 6 to 0,
but the following week St. Augustine, termed by sports writers as one of the state's strongest teams,
tamed the Tigers and defeated them 14 to 0.
On a lateral, Skuda to Reid, Reid galloped 70 yards to a touchdown against Hobart, an
Indiana school. Skuda's drop kick for the extra point was good, and the Tigers defeated Hobart
7 to O.
Coach Bill Moss's Tigers rose to what was probably their highest peak during the season
even though they were defeated 19 to 0 at the hands of Muskegon. The Tigers played brilliant foot-
ball, outgaining and outcharging the Muskies, but Mukegon's alertness spelled victory for them.
To add insult to injury we lost to our friends from across the river by a score of 3 to 0 on
Carver's field goal. That was the first time St. joseph had beaten us in 19 years.
Due to the fact that the Tigers were riddled with injuries, they dropped their remaining
three games tof Holland, Muskegon Hts., and Kalamazoo, but in each case they went down fighting.
"B" FOOTBALL TEAM
Ninteen letters were awarded by Coach Laws to the second team this year. This was a
smaller number than usual since six promotions were made to the Varsity Squad during the season.
The remaining material was only of fair calibre and made a much less impressive seasonal record
than the "Tiger Cubs" of the last few years.
Although the Cubs faced a somewhat tougher schedule this year in meeting some newcomers
outside of our own league, such as "The South Bend Central Cubs," St. Augustine of Kalamazoo,
and Buchanan, they were able to hold their opponents to a margin of one touchdown. Their best
games were played against St. john of Benton Harbor, Buchanan, South Bend Central, and St.
Some outstanding performances were turned in by Yops and Baldwin in their passing attack,
by Mitchell in directing play, by Melvin Brown both as a lineman and later as a full-back, and by
Bedunah, Wegner, Kennedy and Allis as capable linemen,
