For a few hectlc lays

to a very apay Freshman yexr
We lo t only two of our former R7 enrollr nt iurlnv he year They
were Bet'y Jn dner and Eugene Raab
fe fenoer 2, 1952 and our Sophomore , f Ind :ack afaln resunlnv
the revxlxr Jutlne of classes with the ab 1 1 few, Vlv'an
Norman, 'ax Jmerlk, Gilbert Lockett, Robert yn , 2:nald Lender, Jim Miller
H rshell iorran and Dave Hendricks Althod ' ere qu e a numb r who
would not be with us avaln, we were glad to five arty Jelcone to our
new co , Jalter Pldkey, Bessie tanley and L11 y s eal
ulmlding us into two groups, the Qophonore rls found Room 2 as their
ho 0 ruxn with 'rs Albright counsellnv us The bojs were mtuafed in Room
A H175 fr Jaterlao Amidst all the confusion we chos our class rinse wh1ch
were of the Pennsylvania style
Our Junior year' Yes, and what a year xt was to look forward to
had two very lnportant ev nts to think about Namely the Junlor CSHIDT Prom
and the receiving ol our class rings
Under the direction of Mr Kitko the Junior girls were situated in Roam
10 and the boys w re being supervised by Vr Judson in Room 2
Our Junxor class missed the followinv nemo rs Dorothy Marshall, Eliza
beth Milllron, Frances Rusyn, Paul Baylin, Mike Rebo, Don ftrouo, iam Cdpenia
and Dean Wavner
September 8, 1954 'eventy four of us entered the fa liar halls again
but this time it was with a feellnv of confldence for we were WFSDIDTSW now
and not oulte as frightened as we were only three short years avo
They say nlstory repeafs mtself and It must be true for we were divided
into thr e vrouos just as we were when we were WFr shiesn The commercial
students were placed down in Room ll, the fypinv room, with M s Albrif t
twenty four gi ls in Room 3 with Miss Buranovsky, and the boys in Room 5 aith
We are glad to say that during our senior year we w re qalta forfunat
because we lost only one classmate, Janice Cain, and gained one, Frances
Leaper, thus making ours one of the larvest vraduatlnv clas es ln the schools
Those four years have been wonderful for all of us We all enjoyed our
Sophomore trip in the fa 1 of the year with Mr Dodson to Jettyshurv and then
mn the spring, Mr Larson along with Mr Dodson t ok us to Pittsburvh nur
Junior year we again traveled with Mr Larson to Philadelphia Wur 'enlor
year we went on that lonv awaited trip to Washinvton acco panl d by 'rs
Albright, Mr Dodson and Mr Temchack
We want to express our deepest than s and app ecla 'on to all he feach

years of high school days that we will cherish 'orever
Success and Jood lucc to the

Darxng, powerful, and with the w1ll to win, the Jr en Clad Eleven of the Moshannon Joint footnall team
had one of its most successful seasons the year of '54
The hearty nen under the good coaching of Lamont Clo e and Frank Kltko, played a total of 10 rames 4 t
1 lo s of only 2 ganes the entire season Their two losses were the ev r powerful State College vs Voshan
nan Join game and the mlvhty team of Bellwood Antls
Under the arc livhts at State College, we opened our football sea on and met our first defeat Althouv
the pivskin continued to bounce into the hands of our opponents, hard plunging, quarter back McCoy, and full
back Kitko were able to each glory land twice making the score 19-12
The State College Dame marked our number one defeat, but it didn't quench the lnexhaustable energy of
the Close men Their next encounter was Bellwood An is and here again the f1ght1ng team play d a food game
Bellwood, Gaining very little on the ground, was able to turn the tables on us by running and intercepting
making the loss a 33 O in favor of Bellwood
It was after the Bellwood Antls game that the spirited Raider ll began th season that was to set a new
all time record at Moshannon Joint
Victory number one came about at the Roaring Spring game It was a nip and tuck game in the first two
quarters but as the same progressed, the fighting green was abl to tally the score with end John Rerko
along with Pete Webb stopping the opponent's thrusts time and time again Fullback Jim Kitko scored two
touchdowns making the wln over Roarlnv Spring l3 6
In the fourth game of the season, Moshannon Joint played host to Gallitzen in an afternoon contest at
Madera, our fi st home game Once again we were vlctorlous with a score of 25 O Webb, making the first
touchdown, was the game's ble scorer as he caught a pair of passes xhlle Joe Syktlch, along with Kltko
Next the Green Raiders traveled to Howard where t ey undertook Bald Eagle This was an easy victory
and we won 38-19
After this the fighting Close men played Osceola and here they chalked up another vxctory of 14 O in
the first half of the game Due to the fact that Osceola failed to return to the grid iron for the second
half, the vane was forfeited to us Touchdowns scored by fast movlng Kohan and Kitko Extra poln s by
Kitko and J Lloyd
The power packed Raiders exploded their energy on Cooper Twp as they again proved their strength by
trampling Cooper 52 6 Kltko scored 2 touchdowns, McCoy two, and John Lloyd one Extra Points made by
Kohan and McCoy
Striking like lightening our mighty Moshannon men won one of the most thrilling games of the season
On a cold, frosty nlvht, they were able to outwit the Golden Tide of Curwensville for the first tina
17 years, with a score of 12 0 This was certainly a grand Game as the lineman and backfleld played thelr
best One of the finest features of the contest was a desperation tackle made by injured center, Clair
KTeabagsJ Lockett which proved to be the turning point of the game as the Tide back was touchdown bound
The dazzling play of our backf1e1d led by McCoy and Kohan coupled with the hand bruslnv tackle of our
defensive team led by seniors, Rerko, Syktlch, Rickard, Webb, and underclassmen Hamm, Rodkey, Reese and
Mlhalko spelled the difference in our greatest vlctory of '54
After this history making game, Moshannon Jolnt encountered Williamsburg, With Webb and Melvin Kerr
intercepting passes, Kltko, B Romanchick and McCoy reaching pay dirt and WcCoy's pass to Syktich for an
extra point we were able to stampede Williamsburg 26-7
To end up a wonderful season for '54, the victorious Raiders met HW B , their arch rivals, under the
lights at Houtzdale This was another game to go on the victory side of the Raiders record With Kohan
dashing 65 yards to the H W B 21, Kitko was later able to score on a four yard run He also scored three
more touchdowns during the game A McCoy to Syktich was also good for a touchdown and McCoy's try for an
extra point was able to split the uprighte It was with these plays that we whitewashed H W B to the tune
of 32 0
Due to the fine playing of our unconquerable linemen and hard hitting backfleld, Moshannon Joint won
its eighth straight game and the Championship of the Moshannon Valley league for 1954 Not only dix we
win the Mosbannon Valley Championship, but also the M V scoring cnamplonship was taken byx Jim Kltdo
Along with all this, we were placed fourth in the Western Conference
The football team of '54 will long remain in our memories as it showed such wonderful co-operaflln and
that never give up spirit that was a sight to behold
