The year of 1925 saw one of the most successful football seasons in
the history of the Decatur High School.
XVith seven former 1922 stars back, as a nucleus around which to build
the team, Coach Crooks, aided by Mr. Rotz, and Captain Helphinstine, built
a "grid-iron" team which made many people wonder. Then, too, we must
not forget "Bud" johnson, the fighting Ape, who made 'em all worry before
the contracts were signed and Little .lake Lanum, one of the best full-backs
and punters in central Illinois.
Although the Red and XYhite men faced but two defeats, they were
hard fought games, and there was in fact some compensation, for Decatur
learned to fight, and hght hard.
The team suffered a serious blow in the first game when Captain Help-
hinstine, the veteran center, suffered a broken bone in his foot.
The whole "gang" came out and saw the game. They showed that
old D. H. S. spirit, which makes 'em think they can't lose. They saw Captain
Helphinstine, Bud Johnson, VValter johnson, Arnold, Perry, Baird, Lehn,
Thompson, and Lanum play their last time for the Red and XYhite, when
they met Springfield, their ancient rival, on a muddy Field: however, neither
team passed the goal line. Wfith several letter men under the leadership
of Captain-elect Harrold the season of 1924 promises to be successful.
