HORACE COPELAND - Sr. - 160 - Center
"Horse" has the reputation of being the
hardest-hitting player in the district.
LARRY DUNBAR - Sr. - 150 - End
Larry was another good defensive player.
He was known for his "necktie" tackles.
CALVIN GRAHAM - Soph. - 155 -'Center
Mo was our player with the mast desire
to accomplish his duty. We'll never forget
the way he dashed out of those huddles.
LOUIE LE BEAU - Soph. - 165 - Guard
A tough customer on defense, he will
really be tough when his ears heal up.

This was Mooks' first year to play foot-

That the i954 Indian basketball team, with a 80.7 percentage of wins Q25-61, was one of the
best 2-A teams in the state might not be apparent when one states that Coach Servies' boys were
runners-up in District 2-A l2, but they were outclassed in district play only by the four-times state
Their performance in play outside the district bears out the claim above. In the Weatherford
tournament, which they entered only two weeks after the beginning of basketball training, they
were defeated in the semi-finals by Springtown, later a district winner. The Indians won consola-
tion at Childress, having lost their opening game to Wichita Falls, tournament winner, a team
which advanced to the state meet in the 4-A class. They won the Ouanah tournament.
Individual honors went to Jack Gist, all-tournament team at Weatherford, all-tournament at
Childress, and all-tournament at Quanah. He was named the most valuable player at Childress.
Mike Newby was chosen on the all-tournament team at Childress and all-tournament second team
at Quanah. Eddie Cooper was all-tournament at Quanah.
Pribble, Cooper, Townsend, and Beasley are eager for Cooper wiggles in for another basket.

With graduation and matrimony leaving only one member ofthe I953 regional championship
team, the Nocona coach faced the task of building a team from a squad of inexperienced iuniors
and sophomores. The girls were coached during the first part of the year by Mrs. Zana Chapman,
and after her resignation by Mrs. Kay McGaughy. With their valuable experience gained this
season, the girls should develop another superior team next year.
