Although four lettermen were on hand, 'only two of them,' Captain Ralph Cooper andsophomore Lynn Hamilton were starters from the year before while 'Bob Olds and Cedric Wallace, the other two lettermen, had just seen enough action the year before to earn their letters but were", not experienced veterans at the game Lack of heightiwas. another discouraging factor as Hamilton was the only boy who stood over the 6 foot mark and the oth ers were considerably lacking in altitude In spite of these shortcomings, the Warriors had a suc cessful season and their aggressive and fast breaking style of ball caused many a headache for opposing teams and-fpro vided many a thrill for the spectators.

WARRIOR - 1944 boys with little or no football experience at all. The returning lettermen were Don Davidson at tackle, Bob Crandall at cen- ter, Ralph Cooper at end, Lynn Hamilton at tackle, less ln- gram at halfback and Erwin Wilkinson at fullback. Of this sextet, only Davidson was a starter from the championship team of the year before. This green but hard working squad of footballers car- ried the colors of Lebanon through a season of 7 games on con- secutive weekends and came out of the campaign with a record of 2 victories and 5 defeats. These figures do not tell the true story, however, as the Lebanon Warriors played a thrilling and never-say-die brand of ball all season and gave the record breaking number of spectators at Newport Field many an exciting moment in the four home games played this year. The boys are all to be commended on their fine spirit and team play and each boy, whether he be a first-stringer or a substitute on the bench, is deserving of high praise be- cause of his excellent work despite the handicap of little ex- perience. Lebanon opened the season with a well earned victory over Toledo 21 to 15 but the next weekend the Warriors jour- neyed to Portland to take on the strong and unbeaten Rams of Central Catholic and the Lebanon boys were soundly trounced 53 to 0. Not only were the local boys humiliated in score by the strong Portland team but a number of the boys were injured so severely that the team was never at its top strength for the rest of the season. The next weekend an in- jury riddled but strong-hearted group of Warriors tangled with the Sweet Home Huskies on the local field and managed to eke out a 7 to 0 victory over the favored neighboring team. Dallas high school found Lebanon in a decided slump the next weekend and proceeded to spank the boys from the Strawberry City by a 26 to 8 score. ln an effort to find a line- up that would click, Coach Bud Page shook up his starting lineup in the week that followed the Dallas game in prepa- ration for the game with the Tigers of Iunction City. Lebanon played outstanding ball for three quarters, but weakened in the last quarter and allowed lunction City to push over two touchdowns and win 14 to 6. X The annual battle with the Bulldogs from Albany was next on the Lebanon schedule and this classic was played before a record crowd at Newport Field. After a scoreless first half in which the Warriors more than held their own with the heavy visiting team, the Bulldogs came back in the last half and by use of sheer weight and power wore the lighter Lebanon team down and pushed across two touchdowns to win by a score of 12 to U. The last game on the schedule was with the strong

WARRIOR - 1944 of years. Perhaps the outstanding game of the season was one played against Toledo on the local court in which the Mudhens emerged victorious 29 to 27 but only after two overtime ses- sions had been played. Lebanon finished third in district competition this year be- hind Corvallis and Toledo. Two boys, Ralph Cooper at ior- ward and Lynn Hamilton at center, were placed on the All- district second team and Hamilton was third high scorer with a total of 67 points in league play. Of the 8 boys receiving letters only one boy will be lost by graduation. Ralph Cooper, captain of this year's team is the only departing senior but his ball playing ability will be sorely missed when the 1945 season rolls around. Ralph proved an excellent team leader and his spirit and sportsmanlike manner in competitions label him as one of the best ever to wear a Lebanon uniform. The following boys received letters at the close of the season: Seniors: Captain Ralph Cooper, Iuni- ors: Bob Olds, Cedric Wallace tboth Co-captains for the 1945 seasonl, Bill Peden: Sophomores: Dave Powell, Lynn Hamil- ton, Dean Ward, Freshmen: Ron Cox: Managers: Bill Conner and Bob Downing. 7 The season's summary is as Lebanon .....................,,.,.,..,.,,.
