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.

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.

HERE’S WHY AND HOW Then came the big game of the year — the one that the coaches, players and fans had been pointing to all season. The Pulaski- Wytheville game. Hundreds of chilled fans braved the icy cold to see these two great rivals clash, and as the Orange and Black came out on the field, the crowd seemed to wake up and a tremendous cheer filled the air. It was Pulaski’s night all the way, and it proved to be a most exciting Homecoming with the Orioles rolling over their biggest rival, 21 to 6. The Coiner-coached boys took advantage of a bad punt by King of Wythe- ville in the early part of the first quarter, and with Grantham and Jones carrying the ball on consecutive line plays they advanced to the 5-yard line, where on the next play Grantham scored through the middle of the line for the first score of the game. Jones skirted the end and went over standing up for the extra point and Pulaski was out in front 7 to 0. Wythe- ville came back in the second quarter to net a score when King dropped a pass to Cregger, who starred for Wytheville, to set the stage for a touchdown. Crowgy finally went over from the 1-yard line, but Cregger was smother- ed for the extra point. In the next few minutes of the contest Jones, behind beautiful blocking, got loose for a 50-yard run. Gran- tham counted from the 2 -yard line and Jones went over for the point on a sneak. The teams battled evenly for a quarter when sud- denly Jones intercepted a pass and ran it back to the 18. Grantham made it a first on three tries through the line and Jones went over for the last touchdown of the night, with “Bruising Bent” Grantham plunging through a gaping hole in the middle of the line for the extra point, and score stood 21 to 6. It was a thrilling game with both teams looking good on offense. Pulaski’s whole team starred, with Captain Wygal’s kicking a bright spot of the game. Although the Orioles did meet defeat at the hands of the big Marion Maroons in the last game of the season , every one of their fans is proud of them. Captain Johnny Wygal proved his ability to lead the team to victory, and the whole eleven stood out as one of the most powerful ever assembled at P. H. S.
