ALMQUIST ENDS COACHING CAREER WITH 201 WINS Coach H. V. “Shorty” Almquist At the end of the 1961 foot¬ ball season, Coach H. V. “Shorty” Almquist announced he was retiring from the active coaching ranks. Dur¬ ing his 21 year tenure at Rocky High he experienced only two losing campaigns and teams averaged seven wins a season. Duiing this, his final year as grid coach, Almquist passed a milestone in his ca¬ reer. When the Rocks demol¬ ished East Moline 48-0, it not only marked their second vic¬ tory of the year, but also Almquist’s 2 00 t h coaching victory. Coach Almquist’s place as head football coach will b e taken by George “S o n n y” Franck who has produced many outstanding sophomore teams at Rocky. Mr. Franck should have a good start in his varsity debut in the 1962 grid campaign since his last two sophomore teams have had a combined record of Coach Almquist, sensing victory in the grasp of the Islanders, gives instructions for a long pass play to end Joe Fuller and quarterback Riley Brissman. 176 FOOTBALL Almquist’s Record W L ’ 12 yr.
