The football team, experiencing its first year out of C. B. L. competition,
finished the season with a record of three wins and three losses. The Vikings com-
menced their season against Bremen. Led by plunging Dick Huffman, Academy
swamped the home team 20-0. The next game, however, was quite a different story
as Academy faced Mt. Sterling on the latter's field. Sterlingls hard-running Dave
Baxter and fast-charging linemen proved too much for the Vikings as they fell in
defeat 27-7. After this 'defeat the team settled down to work in preparation for
the next game with 'Cincinnati Country Day School. On an extremely sultry after-
noon the teams found themselves lined up for the opening kickoff. Although the
score at the end of the half was 13-7 against them, an inspired Viking "ll" man-
aged to edge the "Queen City" squad 14-13. A decisive factor in the victory was
the accurate passing of Bob Barton and the determined running of Tod Raper.
The next game with Grove City started out as a defensive battle, and the half
ended with the score tied, 0-0. The second half was a different story. A reju-
venated Grove City team ran up a score of 13-0 before the final gun. The next
game was the eagerly awaited contest with Bexley. Although Bexley was highly
favored, the Vikings were determined to put up a good fight. The first quarter
was fought evenly with neither team gaining any ground. But as the second quar-
ter began, the Lion's greater reserve strength and heavier line began to take its
toll. The half ended after Bexley had made two touchdowns to Academy's none.
In the second half a tired but spirited Academy team tried to fight off the power-
ful Bexley thrusts, but found it useless as Bexley collected two more touchdowns
to end the game with the score reading 26-0. The team, after two defeats in suc-
cession, was eager to face a victoryless University School squad. Playing anything
but brilliantly, the Vikings managed to eke out a 17-13 win.
Special honors went to Bob Barton and Tod Raper who were elected to the
2nd team of the All Independent team. Dick Huffman, Bill Reiland, and Lucius
Sinks were also mentioned.
This year the team worked well as a unit combining spirit and hard work to
bring about a successful season. Under the able captaincy of Lou Sinks and the
fine coaching of Mr. White, the team did accomplish something-the will to play
