Heller Coach’s Comments The 1977 Comets started the season rather slow due to the fact of new coaches, new offensive and defensive systems, and a rather small group of returning letterman. By the end of the season they were a team to be reckoned with. Finishing 4-3 in the conference, the Comets stayed in the conference race most of the season. Our highly motivated seniors will be sorely missed next year. They’ve set the tone for Comet football for 1978. Our primary goal was to show improvement each week. I think we met this goal. With the foundation established by this football team, I believe our football program is now on solid footing for the future.

Porter; Not Pictured: K. Crump, D. Ludwig. Coach’s Comments The 1977-78 seasons produced the first winning record for the Comets in the last three seasons. Led by co-captains Garen Cornett and Greg Sturm, El Paso finished the year with a record of 15 wins and 10 losses. Highlights of the year included a first place finish in our first (and perhaps last) Thanksgiving tournament; a third place finish in the conference; and a fourth place finish in the county tournament. Greg Sturm was voted to the first Midstate all conference team and Tom Kearfott was voted to the second team. Tom was also selected most valuable by his teammates. Garen Cornett and Doug Carley tied for the best defensive award and Brad Hayslette was selected most improved. With four returning starters and several other returning squad members, the 1978-79 Comets should continue to be successful.

Chuck F., Mrs. Stiles Officers The Student Council of 1977-78 has been active and dedicated to stimulating school spirit in a variety of ways. In the fall, the “Welcome Back” dance and the homecoming activities were successful (even though it “rained on our parade”). The returning alumni and the students at the dance agreed that this year’s homecoming was one of the best. Council members were busy selling candy around Christmas in an effort to provide additional funds for more dances. How were they to know that the snow was going to cancel dance after dance. However, not to be defeated, dances were rescheduled and enjoyed even more. Who can forget — CARTOON DAZE — Mr. Kays as Santa? — “Let’s Do It Again” — the race to get your name in the S.C. minutes by moving to adjourn — Murray’s cowboy hat — John P.’s Front Mrs Stiles Advisor, Janet K-Sec.,LynnH-ViceP ,Back late arrivals — the pencil sharpener committee Doug D.-Tres..

After working hard to raise enough money the band took a tour in mid-April. Having played a concert in LaSalle they headed for Chicago to tour the Ludwig Drum Corporation and to relax.

Four school records were broken in the process and the Comets won their third Mid State title in a row. Seniors Jeff Porter, Murray Hynes, Doug Dehority, Scott Armstrong, and Bruce Martin will be sorely missed next year, but incoming freshmen Comets seem to make the Comets track program look solid for track program look solid for the future. The Frosh-Soph won the Mid State Conference title for their second year in a row, so over all the Comets look rather solid for the next few years. It was extremely satisfying to me to be associated with these fine men and look forward to another banner year. Many thanks to Merlin Haas who helped with statistics, times, etc. so that the Comets could keep on winning!
