A GREAT V E A R IN ATHLETICS lj OOTBALL season brought Coach John S. Coiner back to us for his second year as coach of Pulaski Hi. He wasted little time in get- ting down to hard work to round the squad of 30 hopefuls into condition. Coach Coiner was soon joined by Mr. John Davidson who was formerly a team mate of his at William and Mary. Mr. Davidson was an outstanding athlete at the Virginia school, playing guard on the football team while there. He took over the line candidates and soon developed a hard- charging forward wall. The boys had been training hard for sev- eral weeks when, on September 27, they stepped out to defeat Martinsville 6 to 0 in the first game of the season. Haislip, Massie, Golden, Huff, Shinault, Alley, Grantham, Jones, Wygal and the Vann brothers, in the first string unit, all had the satisfaction of being the first team ever to play a night football game in Pulaski. The next week found the Orange and Black team facing the Radford Bobcats on foreign soil. After a surprising first half, the Orioles started clicking and came out of the sun baked game on the victorious end of a 26 to 12 score, to make it two years in a row against our traditional grid rivals. The Pulaski boys kept the winning streak in order the following Friday night by trouncing Blacksburg 21 to 0 before a large crowd at Calfee Park. In the next game, with the Vinton Terriers, the Coiner-men encountered some tough luck and had to be satisfied with a 6 to 6 tie.

ANOTHER GREAT GRID SEASON Coaches aar) Capti am Hard luck struck again the following week when the Orioles played the Narrows Green Wave to a scoreless tie. Pulaski put on bursts of power several times, only to be halted within the shadow of the goal posts. The Orioles jumped back into the win column again by defeating the Dublin Dukes, on a mud-soaked field, to a tune of 13 to 0. Dublin put up a gallant scrap, but they were no match for Pulaski’s heavier and more ex- perienced team. The winning streak was continued the following week when Pulaski’s powerful eleven, with two of their regulars on the bench, trounced Hillsville 24 to 0. The game featured t he play of Pulaski’s capable reserves who played most of the last half of the contest.
