First of all, we scored the second highest number of points against the class 1-A state champs, Flanagan. Secondly, our defense gave up only 156 points for the entire season. Finally, we passed this season for more yards than in any other year since I have been head coach at El Paso. This year's seniors began four years ago with 24 boys out for football. This year they were down to nine. I am real proud of these men and wish them the very best of luck in all their future endeavors. To the underclassmen I say, a job well-done, and am looking forward to next year with much zeal. To the remainder of the student body, I say thanks for all your support and spirit, and I hope we can put together another winner in the future.

Kneeling: Coach Wolf, Jim Hocker, Mike Hankey, Galen Cornett, Steve Baer, Coach Stollberg. LARRY BYRD—An aggressive center who, when he was hot, was unstoppable. He worked hard to become a starter. What he lacked in height, he made up with desire and hustle. JAY ETCHESON--A very good shooter. A starter for two years and a very able performer. El Paso's Townsfolk will not forget Jay helping break Gridley's 18-game winning streak. It was his best game of the year. RICHARD SbA'DER—Began the year where he left off playing football. He hustled and boarded well. Although he did not start all year, he came off the bench to provide added punch to our ball club. LARRY WADSWORTH—A11-Conference Forward, All-Tournament Team in Peoria Heights Tournament. He was elected Most Valuable Player by his teammates for the third year in a row. He was our scoring leader, and rebound leader. He is a college prospect, and with much determination and dedication, he will represent El Paso in the future. ROBERT SNYDER--Rob was a starter at guard. He had a good tournament at Peoria Heights, and should probably' have been on the All-Toumament Team. He was a good shooter. He was hampered by illness, but provided good help when going full blast. STEVE YOUNG—"Sweet" became and earned a starting position at guard at the end of the year. He was elected Most Improved Player by a vote of his teammates. He showed outstanding hustle and desire throughout the season. DENNIS HOCKER--Was our floor general and leader for the past three seasons as guard. He was selected to the Second Team All Conference, and did an outstanding job. All year he helped bring the ball down against the press, and added needed scoring punch to our defense. He will be sorely missed next yrear. STEVE BAER, GALEN CORNETT, MIKE HANKEY, JIM HOCKER, DENNIS LAY, DON HUDSON, AND MARTY BALLARD round out our 1974-75 team. They will need improvement and much hard work to fill in the place of these graduating seniors. 39Jay Etcheson Senior Forward Larry Byrd Senior Center Larry Wadsworth All Conference, MVP, Little All State, All American, Senior Forward Dennis Hocher -Senior Guards- Steve Young Hon.

The team worked hard to win four track meets and placed third in the conference and third in county meets. Special congratulations to the 880 Relay team consisting of Tom Haas, Larry Shepherd, Rick Morgan, and Mike Hankey for qualifying for the finals at State, and Larry Shepherd who qualified for the finals in the Long Jump. Coach StollbergThis year's baseball team was hampered a great deal by a lack of experience. They played very well at times but the element of experience seemed to be too much to overcome. The services of seniors, Mike Cleary, Greg Harris, Matt Hynes, Chuck Rice, and Steve Young will be missed. However, the future of Comet baseball is in the underclassmen who competed this year. I am looking forward to the development of these young men and the subsequent progress of our baseball program.

While in Mexico City we learned about the cultures of the people that once lived there and a brief history of Mexico and Mexico City. We visited such places as Chapultepec Park and Castle, the Pyramids of the Sun and Moon, The Zocalo, The National Palace, The Shrine of Guadelupe, and saw a Bullfight, La Montana Ruso (the world's largest roller coaster), and The Ballet Folklorico. The highlight of the trip was the two day visit to Acapulco. In Acapulco we went on a cruise, saw cliffdivers, and saw the houses of many famous movie stars. We also visited some beautiful beaches. We all enjoyed it very much and I for one am ready to go back anytime. Senorita Robbins 67Junior Class Play March 21, 1975 CAST Jenry.......... Jim............. Joe............. Bob.............

Lower Picture--with American Host Family. AMERICAN Doris with American Host Family. During my travels in Illinois I learned of the vastness of the U.S.A. I saw huge cornfields and plains, I missed the mountains and skiing, I enjoyed the hamburgers, the basketball games, the various school activities and the unexpected close relationship with teachers. I found a nice host-family, I came to accept church activities, small cultural events, but I missed European city life. I became very fond of A.F.S. and I will miss my American friends. Thank you for this year! Elsa Scheitl I am Doris Acuna from Guatemala in Central America. It's been marvelous for me being an A.F.S. student. I had through my year in Illinois a lot of great experiences in many aspects of life. Being an A.F.S. student I had the opportunity to learn about another culture, to appreciate and get a clear concept of the philosophy of living in the U. S. A. I had a nice sharing of experiences with my host family, the teachers, the students in the High School and the whole community, I learned about other people and also I learned a lot about myself. Through the year I had to adjust to many different things; this fact made my experience a lot more interesting. I will never forget the wonderful friendship of the people in Illinois, as well as all the activities we had together. Thank you very much for the fantastic year. Remember that in Guatemala you'll be always welcome. Your friend through A.F.S. Doris with Mother and Father in Doris Acuna Guatemala. 16 calle H-77 Zona 1 Guatemala. Civdadwith family in Phillipines. with American host family. My AFS year has been the most unforgetable experience Pve ever had in my life. I had the opportunity to stay with Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Sampen and family which made my stay here more meaningful and enjoyable. El Paso High School was a perfect place to be, and to know the excellent teachers and friendly students. The knowledge that I had acquired and the pleasant moments I most enjoyed will be of great help for me in the future. My presence here will be very valuable in achieving international understanding among nations. I wish to thank everybody who made my living here more fun especially my host family, AFS friends, my mentors and the Student Body of El Paso High School.
