Islander Football Squad Sports 3-6 Record SCOREBOARD Football — 1965 Rock Island 24 Alleman 13 Rock Island 7 Davenport Central 48 Rock Island 6 Moline 28 Rock Island 6 Davenport West 13 Rock Island 26 Dubuque 7 Rock Island 19 East Moline 6 Rock Island 7 Washing-ton 12 Rock Island 12 Iowa City 27 Rock Island 0 Jefferson 43 Rock Island had one of the worst seasons in recent memory in 1965. This record is due to many things in general. Ineligibility and frequent injury cut the Rocks’ effective strength, and little mistakes had a bad ten¬ dency to turn into major errors. A fumble here and an intercepted pass there often ended Rocky scoring drives and set up touchdowns for the opponents. After starting the season right with a win over the Alleman Pioneers, the Rocks were not able to get in the winners’ column again until they met Dubuque in the fifth contest of the year. After a Homecoming vic¬ tory over the East Moline Panthers, the Rocks faced defeat at the hands of Washing¬ ton of Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, and Jeffer¬ son of Cedar Rapids, the Mississippi Valley Champs. Several Rocky players were honored, however. Gordon Ellingsworth was select¬ ed first team end on the All Quad-City and All-Metropolitan teams, and second team All-Conference. Gary Moore, Terry Ellis, Larry Fisher, and Gary Coin were also named to area all-star teams. The Rocks will have twenty-five return¬ ing lettermen next year on which to base a team. Rocky’s B-squad and sophomore foot¬ ball teams had excellent seasons this year and experience gained in these games will greatly aid the Rocky cause next year. JUNIOR QUARTERBACK DAVE THONN (16) prepares to let fly a possible completion. Thonn. filling in for in¬ jured Steve Dawson, is an excellent prospect for a pro¬ spectively exciting 1966 season.
