On September l9th, l94l, twenty-four
green-clad freshmen reported for their first
college football practice. A survey over the
prospective players found a group of
sixteen veterans of high school experience
and eight "rookies," who were entering
the realm of football for the first time.
The frosh team proved to have its share
of "giants" in the personages of Servis,
Sargent, Onuscic, Platner and Burgey in
fact it was summarized that this was the
largest first year team in size, as Well as in
number to report in many a year.
As the football season progressed, the
freshmen showed their spirit and determ-
ination to "get in there and fight" by their
scrimmages with the varsity eleven.
The climax to the season's training, Was
the annual sophomore-freshman game,
which was played on November l9th.
This game is always a source of interest to
the coaches, as a means of picking out
possible varsity men for the next year's
The sophomores entered the game as
the under-dogs, being handicapped by in-
juries and the lack of substitutes. In the
first quarter Caswall crossed the goal line
for the frosh, for the first touchdown of the
game. Before the final gun had sounded
Nutter, Combs, and Kanode had also tal-
lied six points each. The final score read
25 -O 5 a freshman victory.
Throughout the past season quite a num-
ber of the boys looked promising for next
season's squad. A smoothly running back-
field proved to be Combs, Caswall, Nutter
and De Rose. Linernen who proved to be
possible Varsity men Were Bonin, Auble,
Heckler, and Onuscic.
How many of the present frosh squad
will be back next year, due to World con-
ditions, is unpredictable, but it may be
safely stated that a number of those fresh-
men Will be Wearing the orange, red, and
black of the varsity caliber next season.

THE FOOTBALL YEAR
Otterbein 0 Heidelberg 13
The Tricolorrnen opened the season
against a greatly improved Otter team
and came home from Vtfesterville with an
"X" chalked up in the win column. The
Princes' showing promised a good season
unless Lady Luck and injuries took their
toll of the first tearn.
Ashland 0 Heidelberg 37
Making its first home stand, the Heidelberg
eleven kept a ten-year victory precedent
intact by sinking the Ashland Eagles in a
wet and muddy battle. Substitutions for
the Hilltoppers, with every man seeing
action, proved more effective than antici-
pated at the start oi the season.
Capital l3 Heidelberg 19
A highly-touted "Fighting Lutheran" team
invaded Heidelberg on Dads Day and
furnished tough opposition to the unde-
feated Princes. The Wolfelieglaw passing
combinations finally clicked and proved
the undoing of the visitors.
Kenyon 0 Heidelberg 13
The Student Princes rolled into a tough
team at Gambier and blitzkrieged right
through them to maintain their Ohio Con-
ference lead. The Tricolormen led all the
way after scoring a touchdown in their
first three plays ot the game.
Bowling Green 39 Heidelberg 6
Loorning as the one cloud in a blue sky,
the Bowling Green Falcons' powerhouse
thundered over the Heidelbergers at the
Bowling Green Homecoming game. Making
a bad day worse, Peters received an arm
injury which benched him for the season.
Wittenberg 0 Heidelberg 14
ln a major Ohio Conference upset, the
Turneymen bounced back from their first
defeat to stop Wittenberg's fifteenrgame
winning streak before a madly cheering
Homecoming crowd. Mazzoierro and Po-
lino each crossed Wittenberg's hitherto
"uncrossed" goal line.
Nov. 8 -
Elmhurst 0 Heidelberg 26
Accompanied by a large part of the stud-
ents, the Princes invaded Elmhurst and
crushed a relatively weak "sister" college
team in a mire of mud. This costly victory
placed Corroto, Cellini, and Winter on the
Ohio Northem 10 Heidelberg 8
Heidelberg dropped a heart-breaker to a
visiting Ohio Northern team to ring up the
curtain on a successful year. Harmon,
Hosic, Henning, Light, and Sonich played
