As your yearbook staff it is our earnest desire to record
For each of you your outstanding memories of the school year
1954-1955. We are featuring our football squad in the 1955
"Chief" because we Feel that they represent the area where
N. H. S. has made the most progress this year. Our new
football Field, electric scoreboard, and Field house are the
concrete evidence of that progress. The intangibles are the
record of a fighting squad that advanced from the district
cellar in '53 to a rating in the regional top ten this year, and
the accompanying upsurge in school spirit.

Head Coach Assistant Coach
In their first season with the Nocona indians, Coach Jack Harris and his assistant,
Billy Willingham, led the tribe in achieving the best over-all record in District ll-AA, a
rating in the top ten teams of the area, and a second place title in district play.
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.

of the game between the Nocona Indians and the Wichita Falls 0 vm ro om
The Brewer Bears stop Cooper on the 40-yard line. The Indians y
played a much better game than their 13-6 winning score indi- l

In the Jacksboro game, we made 235 yards rushing against 121
for Jacksboro, 61 yards passing against 55, and 17 first downs to
8 for the Tigers.
A record crowd watched the Indians climax the 1954 football
season by defeating the Bowie Jackrabbits 13-2. In their last
1-,ennis Mark high school football game, Noel and Cooper each chalked up a
TD. Lee and Pults were outstanding on defense.
