Mr. johnson's freshman football team, made up of boys who had never before played
organized football, managed to earn two important victories against Buchanan and
St. Joe, and a tie with Dowagiac during the 1955 season.
By learning the fundamentals of sound football, these boys are on their way
towards becoming the stars of tomorrow.

Our Tigers opened the 1955 gridiron season with im-
pressive wins over Chicago Lakeview, Grand Haven,
Hammond Morton, and Muskegon. The Tigers slipped
by the Big Reds on a muddy, rain-swept field as Tiger
fans huddled under any and all available shelter to
cheer them on.
Kalamazoo Central became the first club to tame
the Tigers, and they did it in a 14-7 thriller. Then the
roof caved in! In one of the most humiliating games
in Benton Harbor history, a flred-up Niles eleven ran
our Tigers all over Filstrup Field to emerge 54-0 vic-
tors. After that, the varsity could not fully recover,
and they dropped games to Muskegon Heights and
Holland. Benton Harbor managed to salvage some
prestige and a winning record with a season-ending
conquest at South Bend Riley.
Benton Harbor is graduating 14 lettermen from the
1955 squad: Bob Finch, Bruce Conybeare, Pete Rhodes,
Dick Petruschke, Bill Dalziel, jim Weatherly, Claude
Williams, Rodney Boyette, Steve Findley, john Null,
jim Reynolds, jim Chartrand, Calvin Mayer, and Mel-
rose Hensley. These boys will be hard to replace, but
probably the biggest loss of all is Coach joe Rogers
who resigned to become athletic director.

Wouldn't it be funny if a huge crowd gathered for a football or basketball game, only
to discover that someone forgot the ball? Don't worry! This will never happen to
the teams of B.H.H.S. thanks to the competent service of our squad managers. They
can be relied upon always to be on hand with the sports equipment. Under the cap-
able direction of Mr. Swanson, these boys perform many duties, such as: collecting and
distributing equipment, bringing the first-aid kit, and keeping the water spray
ready for use.
No basketball or football game would be complete without the presence of our lively
cheerleaders. They are a symbol of the school spirit which we like to express. They
can help to raise our morale when the chips are down, and they help keep our hopes
high for a victory. Through them we express the exhilaration we feel during the contest.
Cheerleaders - L. Stewart, B. Ginter, B. Ogden, K. Gobiel, V. Froehlich.
