ROM Football — The Year of the Bulldog Se. ee ae oT Th 7 pas MONTEVALLO BULLDOGS - AREA 7 FOOTBALL CHAMPS FIRST ROW: Kelvin Lilly, Edd Green, Randy Beers, Barry Lynn Harper, Kevin Hughes, Alvin Connell, Jeff Lucas, Barry Kornegay, Kenneth E. Jones, David Lash, Darrell Lawley. SECOND ROW: Assistant Coach Bobby Sherrer, Mark Spence, Craig Van Valkenburg, Tim Ross, Shane Connell, Freddie Thompson, Bill Allen, Buddy Holsombeck, Scobie Wilcoxin, Ronnie Hale, Student Coach Franklin Rutledge. THIRD ROW: Head Coach Richard Gilliam, Dennis Brown, Thomas Brown, Terry McCarey, Jimmy Lee Talley, Johnny Williams, Ken Jones, Sidney Fields, Maurice Reed, Chuck Reynolds, Billy Belisle, Assistant Coach Kurt Pnazek. Montevallo, under the leadership of Coach Richard Giliiam, ended the 1976 football season with a 9 win, 1 loss regular season record and advanced as the Area 7 champs to the state playoffs for the second consecutive year. After defeating Hokes Bluff in the first round, Montevallo lost to the eventual 2A state champs, Elmore County. FRANCIS MARION (36-0) A tenacious defense which turned back the Rams after an MHS fumble on the 5-yd. line and held Marion to 3 first downs, along with Thomas Brown's 3 TD's and 186 yards offense sparked the opening Bulldog win. CHELSEA (20-0) A 34-yd. aerial from Thomas Brown to Shane Connell on the 1 yd. line with 40 seconds remain- ing in the first half opened the way, and Sidney Fields’ 83-yd. sprint with an intercepted pass sealed another victory, as the defense again protected the MHS goal line. SHELBY COUNTY (18-0) A swarming defense, an offen- sive line that came to play, and outstanding ball-carrying by Brown, Connell and Terry McCarey gave MHS its first vic- tory over Shelby County in 14 years. THOMPSON (0-40) Allowing Tim Durrett, Warrior QB, to break a long one on their second possession and turning it over on a fumble on the first play from scrimmage in the second half gave the Warriors the impe- tus necessary to wallop the Bull- dogs in their only regular season loss of the year. JEMISON (28-18) Tim Ross moved back to fullback from tackle in second quarter after injuries had ripped the starting backfield and bulldozed the Bulldogs to victory. MHS had to come from behind twice as injuries to starters left them diso- riented. VINCENT (26-18) Terry McCarey's generalship, Ross's inside running behind Johnny Williams’ blocking, anda great team defensive effort were the keys to victory. MHS’ Thomas Brown's 84-yd. kickoff- return to open the second half gave breathing room. WINTERBORO (53-22 Hardhitting in the early going produced a turnover and took the desire for combat away from Winterboro and allowed MHS to coast to an easy victory. Brown scored 4 TD's in the first quarter then retired for the night. CALERA (26-6) Tim Ross's 21-yd. ramble behind Johnny Williams and Dennis Brown blocks in the 3rd quarter broke the ice and the Eagles’ back as MHS pulled away after an 0-6 halftime deficit. WEST BLOCTON (27-0) Great second effort on offense and intensive first effort on defense were the keys to this ‘team' " ' victory which sealed the Area 7 championship. TALLADEGA COUNTY TRAINING SCHOOL (38-8 1 and No. 2 defense com bined to limit TCTS to minus 17 yards offense as the Bulldogs closed out the regular schedule with reserves doing most of the playing and doing it well. HOKES BLUFF (35-16) The Bulldogs, remembering last year's freakish loss, executed well, hard, and tough to claim the Region 4 championship. They battled to a 35-0 lead in the 3rd quarter before allowing the Eagles their first 1st down of the evening. ELMORE COUNTY (6-14 Three fumbles (at ECHS’s 5, MHS's 24, and MHS's 40) plus a one-time-only defensive leak that allowed a 35-yd. TD-run just before intermission gave the home team Panthers the margin of victory even though Montev- allo had an edge in every other Statistic. ECHS went on from there to become the Class AA state champion.

Montevallo took second place in 2A competition in basketball for the third time in six years at the state tournament. St. Jude's Pirates of Montgomery claimed the 1st place trophy defeating the Bulldogs 67-51 in the championship bout. In advancing to the final round the Bulldogs gave two of their finest performances of the season according to Coach Kurt Pnazek, passing tourney favorite Oak Grove and perennial state opponent Madison County. After a low-scoring first quarter as each team tried to gain poise, Oak Grove led 9-8; but a second quarter 10-point performance by Sidney Fields gave Montevallo a 24-19 halftime edge. The pressure defense kept up by MHS pulled out a 51-46 opening day victory. Offensive speed and defensive pressure got the Bulldogs past a stubborn Madison County team, 61-54. Leading scorers for Montevallo in this match were Chappell with 15; T. Brown, 12; Pope, 11; and S. Fields, 10. After building up a 20-10 first quarter lead in the finals, St. Jude eliminated all Bulldog hope for a state crown as the Pirates claimed it. Playing without starters Thomas Brown and Henry Pope and subs Maurice Reed and Braddy Brown, suspended for disciplinary reasons, every Bulldog who got into the action scored, but it was not enough. Thomas Brown and Sidney Fields made the All Tournament team. '76-'77 Bulldog Record GAME OPP.
