When the Lebanon grid team put their uniforms away after the last game in late w
November, they had completed one of the most successful seasons in the history of the V
school. Recognized as one of the top eight teams in the state, the Warriors piled up
the impressive record ot seven wins and one loss in the season's play. They scored a I ,
total of IO6 points while the opponents made only 5l. The local boys were victorious ,
in their first seven games and as Northern Division champions in the Tri-County League is
they lost out to the southern champion, Cottage Grove, in a playoff game.
Led by a quartet of backs who could block, tackle and run, all with equal ability,
and helped along by a heavy, powerful line, the Warriors iust had too much power
for opponents to overcome. The Lebanon gridsters used a power type of offense,
with just enough trickery to keep the other team guessing. The biggest share of ball l
carrying was handled by Captain Bill Peden at fullback and Dave Powell at haltback. f T
Bill was by for one of the outstanding fullbacks in the state and his ability to hit the
line with the power of a locomotive, mode him a very consistent ground gainer. Most if
of BilI's yardage was gained through center or inside tackle while Dave made his yard-
age outside tackle and on end runs. Dave proved to be a workhorse and he never y
knew when to stop driving. Both of these boys, by the way, were selected on the
Tri-County All-Star team and were truly deserving of this award.
The two other backs for Lebanon included Jess Ingram at quarterback and Dean X t -X
Ward at halfback. .less proved to be an outstanding field general on the gridiron and 'l A ,
this ability coupled with his savage blocking labeled him as an important cog in this I t
grid machine. Jess has been selected as captain of the i945 team and great things kg l
are expected from him next year. The other back, Dean Ward, carried the ball ver , -
little, but his consistent blocking cleared the way for many of Lebanon' uchdown . 'll'

In the line, George Fowler, a mere lad of 235 pounds, held down the center po-
sition in great style and with the improvement he showed this year, he should prove to
be an outstanding lineman next year.
The guard spots were filled by Art Cobb and Denny Marvin two boys who made
the center of the Lebanon line as formidable as a stone wall. Art was after the fifth
man in the opponents' backfield and if they got by Art, they were met by Denny who
backed up the right side of the line and tackled for keeps.
Tony Solberg and Paul McCracken held down the tackle positions and they were
two of the best tackles in the league. Tony was playing his second year at tackle and
very little yardage was made through his side of the line. Paul was playing his first
year at tackle but he learned quickly and always made it tough for his opponents.
The end positions were filled by Lynn Hamilton and Kenny Haughton. Both of these
boys were tops, Lynn for his great defensive work and pass snaring ability and Kenny
for his wonderful blocking and ability to clear the way for the backs to follow him.
These two boys will be back again next year to heckle opposing teams.
The reserves came in for a great deal of attention too, and without them the suc-
cess of the team would not have been so great. The following boys, besides the ones
named above, earned the Lebanon "L", Don Brown, quarterback, Joe Elkins, halfback,
Ron Cox, halfback, Don Ellis, fullback, Gay Baldwin, center, Bud Goold and Denny
Canny, guards, Ross McCormick and Larry Christian, tackles, Stan Worland and Dick
Hobbs, ends. Honorary letters were awarded to Dick Clarke, Richard Michelson and
Ced Wallace who suffered iniuries during the season and were unable to play. Man-
ager's awards were given to Doug Smith and Bob Johnson.
