The 1972 FOOTBALL COMETS finished their campaign very successfully after quite a disappointing start. We opened the season with losses to Eureka and Dee-Mack and then won six of our last seven games. Our only loss the rest of the season was to Lexington, who finished the conference undefeated.
We started the season with ten seniors on the squad, but they were plagued with injuries. STEVE ARMSTRONG and RICK CAMPBELL, both starters last year, were sidelined before the season got under way. KEN SCHUMACHER, a starting defensive end, was put out of commission before the third game. All-conference tackle JON JONES and linebacker TOM WILKEY led the team in tackles, each getting 70. TOM was injured in the Minonk game, which put him out the rest of the season. WAYNE FURROW did an outstanding job at defensive halfback. JIM MCWILLIAMS has a fine year at monster linebacker on defense. LOREN BREACH made a lot of improvement at offensive tackle. MIKE HYNES played an outstanding linebacker and also filled in at fullback. GARY RAYMER, the final senior, played a tough comer linebacker and led the team in pass receptions from his flanker spot.
We used a number of underclassmen this year, all of whom did a terrific job in making our season successful. KEN MOOL was an all-conference defensive end. KEITH MOOL was an all-conference offensive guard. TONY HAAS was
an all-conference offensive halfback. TONY is the first back in a number of years to gain over 1,000 yards rushing at El Paso High. DARYL HODEL did a fine job at defensive tackle. TOM STAUTER improved tremendously at the quarterback position and also played a tough corner linebacker. LES ARMSTRONG, TONY HAIR, and TERRY TIPLER, all played key roles in the success of our defensive unit. GREG BAUER played a big role on the kickoff and punt teams. We had two sophomores who played regular on this year's varsity. MATT HYNES at offensive center and MIKE CLEARY at offensive end. We are very happy to have all of these boys back next year.
This group of young athletes did a tremendous job, and the coaching staff is very proud of them. I would like to wish all of them the best of luck in the future.

1st ROW: Gary Raymer, Rick Campbell, Randy Duncan, Tom Stauter, Tony Haas, Wayne Furrow. 2d ROW: Coach Wolf, Allan Hostetler, Larry Wadsworth, Gary Redenius, Ron Harris, Greg Bauer, Steve Armstrong, Dennis Hocker, Ron Harper, Mgr.
WAYNE FURROW — As a 5 7" guard, he was not only a good ball handler but also a good shooter, What he lacked in height, he made up for with hustle and desire.
GARY RAYMER — A starter at forward and guard who battled tough until illness slowed him at mid-season. He came on strong at the end of the year as a good quick shooter with outstanding hustle.
ALLAN HOSTETLER -- A four year basketball player who saw limited action, but was always there when needed. His dedication to the game was his main point.
RANDY DUNCAN -- As a first year starter at center, he played three real outstanding games at Peoria Heights Tournament while having a sprained ankle. He was a good jumper and shooter from the inside and the outside.
RICK CAMPBELL — ’’Soup" was sidelined with a knee injury in football until after Christmas. I just wished he could have performed without the injury as a good healthy forward. He could have made quite a difference in our season.
STEVE ARMSTRONG — Due to a football injury which resulted in a broken leg, Steve was only able to participate for a third of the season.
TONY HAAS — A very quick defensive player who improved throughout the season offensively. With more improvement in ball handling and strong work on offense, he could develop into a "top-notch" guard or forward in the conference.
TOM STAUTER — As our sixth man, he came off the bench the best of any player. He was a good outside shot as well as a strong defensive player. He has the capability of being an outstanding ball player and will step in as a '73 - '74 starter.
DENNIS HOCKER -- As best ball handler, he improved each game to become a starter as a sophomore. With his dedication and determination to improve the defensive and offensive efforts of the team, he should be the floor general next year. He played against some tough opponents as a guard this year but held his own throughout the season.
LARRY WADSWORTH — As offensive leader in scoring as a sophomore, he was elected to the all tournament team at Peoria Heights and also to the honorable mention team for the conference. With dedication and hard work, he could become an outstanding basketball player. He will need to become an inside as well as an outside threat if we become a good team in the future.
GREG BAUER — An outstanding shooter who was also elected to the all tournament team at Peoria Heights. A weak side forward in our offense, who could develop into an outstanding forward with hand work between now and next season. He has all the ability and potential to become great.

This has been quite an active year for GAA. To start out the year archery and hiking were offered as fall sports. We had the first "sanctioned" hike in state history when we met four other schools on our long hike to Secor and had dinner together. A very successful candy sale was sponsored which netted $600. Every girl pitched in but Penny Bushert was the top salesman.
Semester sports included bowling, swimming, volleyball, and dodgeball. In February a formal initiation dinner was held at Mona's. On March 17, the GAA joined in on the Danny Thomas "Shamrock for Dystrophy" drive and contributed well to that cause.
Spring sports offered were baseball, track, campcraft, and two new sports for our GAA: golf and tennis. The year was indeed a busy and successful one.
Honorary members Mrs. Scott and Mrs. Hieser with Faye Crusius Award winner, Sandy Reinkensmeyer.Girls ’ Sports
This year some girls' sports were offered in addition to the regular GAA sports. These programs were sanctioned by the Illinois High School Association. Any girl was eligible to participate but medical exams, insurance, and regular practices were required.
Track meets were held in Gridley, El Paso and Pontiac. Girls represented El Paso in a bowling tournament in Eureka and a volleyball tournament in Flanagan. A total of 110 girls took part in the Red Cross sponsored 50-mile Swim Club.
Girls' sports are now beginning to receive the recognition they deserve and will be seen much more frequently in the future, not only at El Paso High School but throughout the state. El Paso is proud to be a part of this movement.

Greg Harris Randy Heibenthal Mark EnrightFor the AFS Club, this year is one that will be long remembered. Through the Americans Abroad program, Mary Benedict went to Brazil for the summer as the first El Paso student to be accepted to this program. In January Carol Aylward left for New Zealand as our first Year Program participant.
As if it weren t enough to have one "crazy Brazilian" in the form of Sabastiao P. Nunes spending the year in El Paso we also had a "bubbling German" called Gerlinde Wagner. "Tiao" spent his year with the George Drake family and Gerlinde called the Dallas Schuler farm her home. They both livened up the halls at school with their happy singing and thoughtful ideas.
The AFS Club held a welcome party and Tiao s birthday party in the fall. At Christmas we went caroling and had a gathering afterwards. Here, both AFS students received gift certificates for telephone calls to their families. March brought surprizes for Gerlinde — a surprize birthday party, that is! April 30-May 5 was "AFS Week." Four Hersey High students spent the week in local homes, slides were shown in several assemblies, rehersals for the big event of the week, and International Variety Show', were held. Friday at noon, AFS students from surrounding communities began to arrive. Everybody sang and talked and had a good time. Interest in the AFS program was sparked. To everyone involved it was clear that it's truly a "Small World."
It is sad to end this page in AFS history but we close it knowing that somehow the barriers dividing the world have been drawn a little closer together through our involvement in AFS.

The El Paso High School has been very busy this year. It has performed at several contests, concerts, and community organizations.
The chorus and its ensembles worked many long hours for the IHSA contests held at ISU. From these two contests, we learned achievement, satisfaction, and the ability to work together.
The ensembles also performed for many community organization meetings, such as, Lutheran Ladies Aid, Ki-wanis, and Chamber of Commerce.
The Chorus has performed in several concerts including: the Christmas concert, the Spring concert, and the Stage Band and Chorus concert. Each one of our concerts was an enjoyable experience !

The band at El Paso is a very busy organization. During the year, the band has engaged in numerous parades, concerts, contests, and performances.
The El Paso Marching Comets started the band year. Four home games were highlighted by their music and dance. The Marching Comets performed in four parades, three of which were competitive. El Paso Band also took top honors at the I.S.U. Marching Band Contest!
The Conceit band's season was no less exciting. Three home concerts were performed while members prepared for two contests: solo-ensemble and band. Home basketball games were another place of performance by the band. This year El Paso held an exchange concert with Dee-Mack.
The stage band or "The Reality" was also kept busy. The Corn Festival and the Board-Faculty Dinner were two jobs well done by the band. Clinics and field trips to I.S.U. and I.W.U. were scheduled to help improve techniques.
The band of EPHS is growing bigger and better each year. Every student here can be proud of its achievements!
