Athletics has been an integral part of every student's career at Harlem, whether they actually participated "on the field” or cheered their team from the sidelines.
For some, the active participation in a sport has been a valuable experience. Long, grueling hours of practice depleted the strength and seemingly inhuman coaches tried the patience as these athletes developed in endurance, co-ordination, and character. They tasted the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat as they valiantly strove to "keep the Huskies on top” by being the best of winners... or losers.
But this was neither the most important nor the only aspect of athletics. The job of supplying enthusiastic support for our teams fell into the hands of the majority of the students. For them, the opportunity to attend games and cheer for the Huskies was a chance for a few hours of fun and relaxation.
But whether the student actually participated "on the field" or stood "on the sidelines” and cheered, he learned and developed in the concepts of sportsmanship, leadership, and loyalty—traits in which we feel that "The Huskies are the best.”

During the sweltering heat of August, the Huskies commenced football practice for the ’64 campaign. Opening drills attracted some sixty-three aspiring (and soon perspiring) gridders. As Harlem’s first encounter drew near, the high spirited Huskies primal their offense and readied their defense for all on-comers.
Harlem's opening contest witnessed a last minute touchdown by the Cavaliers of La Salle-Peru to send the Huskies down to a heartbreaking 20-14 defeat. The Huskies rolled up a three game winning streak as they stunned the hapless Harvard Hornets 20-0. An inspired Huskic squad led by the Stout defensive unit, limited the Harvard offense to less than 100 yards, ground gain. A week later in their initial Big Eight contest, the Huskies outclassed the Vikings of Guilford by a 17-7 score as fullback Jim Murphy scored a pair of touchdowns and Randy Jones added a pair of extra points and a thirteen yard field goal. The second conference game provided a joyful Homecoming for Harlem alumni as the Huskies whitewashed the Boy I an Titans 32-0. Tim Berg paced the Harlem defense by intercepting a Boylan aerial and jaunting seventy-three yards for a touchdown.
The fifth outing of the season saw the Huskies traveling to Freeport to challenge the perennially powerful Pretzels. Following a hard fought first half, the highly-touted Pretzels pulled away from the hard-hitting Huskies to a 33-6 victor)'. In Harlem’s fourth Big Eight contest of the year, East High edged the Huskies 6-0. The E-Rab defense proved to be infallible as the)' stalled the Harlem offense both on the ground and in the air.
For the second straight week, the Harlem offense bogged down and West’s Big Eight champion Warriors rolled over us to a 33-0 victory. Our fighting gridders displayed their finest offensive attack of the season in the last home game of the ’64 campaign. Juniors Steve Bainter and L. T. Graham sparked the offensive by scoring three touchdowns apiece. Harlem won the high-scoring game by a 47-33 margin. In the final game at Beyer Stadium, Auburn warded off a strong Harlem challenge to outlast the Huskies, 26-14.
The Huskies showed undaunted spirit and tireless effort in the '64 campaign as the)' finished the season with a 3-4 conference record, capturing respectable fourth place in Big Eight Conference.
