But All-Important Desire ls Present
Lack of experience was the greatest force
working against Coach Larson and his staff
this year. Of the ten seniors on the team, only
four were returning lettermen. This meant that
many positions were left to be filled by juniors
and sophomores. Many starters were seeing
their first varsity play this year. The fact that
most of the players this year were young will
enable Coach Larson to field veteran teams for
at least the next two years.
Defensively, the teams inexperience was
most evident. This was illustrated by the fact
that the fewest points any teams scored agains
the Tigers this year was l2. Peru. averaged
23.8 points per game, a scant 2.3 points more
than their opponents' 2l.5 points per game
lndividually, junior Bob Bockenbaugh, tackle
convertedefullback, led his team in rushing
yardage with 547 yards, averaging 4.4 yards
per carry. Another junior, speedy Bill Shuejr
gained 352 yards in 51 tries to maintain the
team's best average-7.0 yards per carry.
Halfbacks Gary Stewart and Bill Shuey contemplate
field action during a brief rest.
In the passing department, feff Henry launch-
ed most of the aerials with a completion record
of 47.4 percent. Ten of Henry's passes went for
touchdowns and two for extra points. As
Henry's chief receiver, ferry Yentes snagged SC
passes, six of which scored.
Mooney, who played defensive end, led all
tacklers with 82 tackles, followed by lim Baber
with E53 and linebacker Bob Bockenbaugh with
57. lunior tackle Herb Masiuk, in his first year
of ieeibeii, did d fide defensive jee by tripping
up 48 runners. Bon Conklin, a junior lineman
who tips the scales at nearly 300 pounds, crush-
ed a total of 43 ball carriers.
"Unhand me!" says leff Henry as he slips from the
grasp of a would-be tackler.
