A:) | ‘ J eae ee eae Grinnell Wen aes emelle excitement of winning, the disappointment of defeat. SPORTS vad Football — A Year to Remember Montevallo entered the 77 season with a lot of talk of being number one but few believed after seeing the Bulldogs lose key players on offense as well as defense. But with Coach Richard Gilliam at the helm, the " Dogs developed an offense that fea- tured breakaway backfield speed, while Coach Kurt Pnazek’s defense became a tenacious group with an uncanny ability to be around the football. Barry Kornegay also excited the Bulldog faithful with his punting as well as field goals and extra points MHS'’s football stadium became Theron Fisher Stadium as it was dedicated to the Great Coach Theron Fisher who was instrumen- tal in getting the school’s winning tradition in athletics started. (Mrs. Fisher and son Barclay, right, accepted the honor at the dedication ceremonies.) Coach Richard Gilliam received his first undefeated season as head coach while the Bulldogs rolled up a 9-0-1 record and captured both the County and Mid-State champion- ships. MHS’s hopes of a state cham- pionship were quinched early as the Hokes Bluff Eagles»put the " Dogs out in the first round of the state playoffs. It was truly a year to remember for Bulldog supporters and students alike! Ri i - fC x mm ) 4 enne a Ham : VOLLEY Coach Reviews °717 Season BULLDOGS EDGE MARION IN OPENING TILT The bul!dogs opened the season with a 27-19 vic- tory over the Marion Rams but no one was very impressed with the win. ““Saddest victory I’ve ever seen,” remarked Coach Gilliam after the lack-lustre win at home on opening night. ANGRY DOGS SHOW PROMISE Gilliam beamed, “I was almost in tears (of joy) as I watched them reach down and find what I knew they had,” as his Bulldogs came from under a 12-7 halftime deficit to defeat Chelsea 26-12 BULLDGOS SHOCK COUNTY “These boys are squeez- ing everything they can out of themselves, and they are getting better each week,” Coach Gil- liam said after the Bull- dogs shocked Shelby County High School 14- 6. TIE DAMPENS SOARING SPIRITS Coach Gilliam praised the Bulldogs’ defensive efforts say- ing, “This group continues to amaze me each week,” after MHS and Thompson tied 7-7 in a rain-postponed game played at Thompson MHS GROUND ATTACK ROUTS JEMISON PANTHERS “Before the season, I thought at best we would be 3-2 at this point,” smiled Coach Gilliam happily as his Bulldogs upped their record to 4-0-1 with a 20- 6 win over Jemison. BULLDOGS TAKE COM- MAND OF AREA “I was really thrilled with the defensive play and our first offensive drive,’ said Coach Gilliam as the Bulldogs downed Vincent in a hard- fought 17-6 contest. MHS BULLDOGS DUMP WINTERBORO Coach Gilliam “accused” his charges of looking ahead as they ran hot and cold against a hapless Winterboro in their 21- 0 victory on a cold night in Winterboro. HIGHFLYING EAGLES FALL TO BULLDOGS The six different defenses Coach Cairns used against us gave us problems for a while, but these boys are just tremen- dous,”” praised Coach Gilliam as the Bulldogs handed the Calera Eagles their only defeat of the regular season, 28-14. The victory gave MHS four county wins and one tie for the county title. DOG DEFENSE EXPLODES AS PASS DEFENSE COMES ALIVE After the Bulldogs had been so “keyed up” the preceding week against Calera, Coach Gilliam expressed “anxiety” about their emotional status as they faced West Blocton for the area showdown. Grabbing a 7-2 lead with 11 seconds remaining in the first half, the Bulldogs pressed on to a 24-2 decision. HAPLESS TIGERS FEEL MIGHT OF BULLDOGS’ STRENGTH A 31-12 homecoming victory over Talladega County Train- ing School wound up the first undefeated season in his 18- year career for Coach Gilliam. Praising his Bulldogs, Coach said, “They have exceeded all my expectations. This is a scrappy bunch; I couldn’t be prouder.” DOGS DROP FIRST PLAY- OFF CONTEST Their 9-0-1 season’s record still looks good on the books even after losing 12-6 to Hokes Bluff in the first round of the State’s 2A playoffs. “We're thankful,” Coach Gilliam said. “We have grown together this season. I’m just sorry it’s over.” Heart and Talent Took the Bulldogs to Another State Playoff Berth ; . ry “7 a Gy POP LTP Saya a 5 AL A vere J ow wale Je FIRST ROW: Robert Lightfoot, Carey Thompson, Rusty Nix, David Melsoni, Brady Bracken, Wade Bice.
