Sports writers who saw the fine performance of the lndians in all their games named an irrpressive number of the bo s to their mythical teams. The Fort Worth Press placed on the first team for the district Bilyl Lee, Calvin Graham, Eddie Cooper, David Waldrip, and Earl Noel, with Bob Beasley, Jim Storey, and Jim Pults ranked on the second team. The Fort Worth Star Telegram listed Tommy Uselton, Lee, and Cooper on the first team, with Pults, Graham, Noel, and Waldrip named on the second team. The Wichita Falls Record News placed Lee on the all-area first team, with honorable mention for all-area given to Cooper, Waldrip, Wall, and Storey. The coaches of district ll-AA named Uselton, Lee, Cooper, Waldrip, Noel, and Graham on their second team, with honorable mention going to Louie LeBeau Pults, Beasley, Storey, and Wall. Trennis Mark received the annual Lions Club Sportsmanship Award. Only five of the twenty-four members of the squad will be lost by graduation this year: Noel, Beasley, Cooper, Mark, and Embry. The Nocona Touchdown Club led the local fans in enthusiastic support of the team. In their Monday night meetings they showed movies of the game from the previous week. Officers of the club were Bob Bennett, D. G. Gardner, Jr., and Jim Curlin. TRI-CAPTAI NS Eddie Cooper - QB Earl Noel - HB Bob Beasley - E l2 0 6 26 6 34 I3 l3 21 2 ' 5 , Kin 5 . W' 5 ..
