This year s football season which started with a surprised 7 6 vlctory over
Milwaukee Unlversity school came to a successful conclusion with a l4 6
homecoming victory over Northwestern Military Academy ln the course of
the entire season the Hilltoppers chalked up a record of four wins against
two setbacks for the average of 666
With the return of only three lettermen and with experlenced football
players from other high schools Coach Limacher was able to formulate a
smooth working efficient team which was ready to avenge the previous
season of defeats
The first game of the season was held in our bowl where the heavier
Mustangs were outmanuvered by the I-lilltoppers and lost 7 5 This game
cost us Bill Evans our regular haltback who received a dislocated shoulder
and was lost for the entire season
The heartbreaking defeat of the season occurred when we were outclassed
by Lake Forest 20 6 The I-lilltoppers drove deep into LFA territory six
tlmes but were only able to push the ball over the goal line once Don Sondel
a veteran tackle received a leg 1n1ury and was lost for the rest of the season
their Homecoming holiday by scoring an easy victory 20 o Tom Gaffney
Elgins end was a spark plug scoring two of our touchdowns
lt was a sad Dads Day Nhen Elgin dropped its second conference game
to Park School of lndianapolis l3 7 The Hillmen fought hard all the way
but a patched line up suffered the conseauences
The following week the Academy gridders wallooed the hapless Wheaton
Academy 14 O Ierry Vavrys was outstanding for the Hllltoppers he scored
five times with long runs although three of them did not count on account
The last game of the season was a happy Homecorring day for the alumni
The I-lilltoppers avenged the cadets victory a year ago with a victory over
Northwestern Military Academy 14 6 Both teams fought hard all the way
but Elgin came out on top l4 6
This year for the ftrst time a trophy had been awarded to the most valuable
football player lt was won by Logan Sellers one of the finest defense men
in the history of the Academy Wayne Mische Elgins blazing fullback was
selected by the coaches as an All Conference player The Lieberman trophy
for excellence in blocking and tackling was also won this year by Mische
The l-lilltoppers had a week-end trip to Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, and spoiled

As transportatlon was d1ll1CLlll the Academys hghtwelght team was able
to play only nme games w1nn1ng only three ol them
Thelr season should not be cons1dered as unsuccessful tor they have faced
opponents who had better advantage 1n he1ght about hve mches per man
The opponents were rather tough for the hghts but they never lost the1r
ughtlng spmts and could always be counted on for good games
No one player on the squad can be chosen as outstandmg We look to
them tor luture rnaterlal as most of them Wlll be returnlng aga1n next year
More expenence and more work wlth the coach should mold these players
1nto a well balanced team for the com1ng year
