Quarterback Larry Shriver watches Coach Almquist diagram a new play. Head coach H. V. " Shorty " Alm¬ quist made his twentieth year at Rock Island High one of his best, finishing the year with a 9-0 record and his 198th coaching victory under his belt. Opening the year with a team pegged as " a good smart squad, with backfield speed, good passing and catch¬ ing, a solid line and only moderate size ' the Rocks pulled a slight upset by drop¬ ping Iowa City 28-26 on a 54-yard pass play from Larry Shriver to Tommy Thomas with only one second left to go, and set the victory trend that continued all the way through the 1960 grid season. ROCKS END GRID SEASON WITH PERFECT SLATE; WIN M.V.C. AND QUAD-CITY LOOP CROWNS All season long the Rocks were noted for their rugged defense, and lineman Bill Ziel shows how this was accomplished as he prepares to brush aside two imaginary opponents and rush in to tackle the enemy ball carrier. 170 FOOTBALL
