Gridders Improve With Season Hard work and true determination produced a very respectable season of 6 — 3, under the direction of Head Coach, Gary Embretson. The opening game at LaSalle — Peru produced a 15 — 14 Rock victory. The Rocks lost their next three encounters. The first coming to cross town rival Alleman 13 — 9. It was the first victory for Alleman over the Rocks since 1967. The next encounter was with Davenport Assumption, and what a nail biter it was ,, the Rocks coming out on the short end of the stick, losing 15 — 13. The winner of the Moline game is given the prized Tomahawk award. The Rocks were holders of the Tomahawk but handed it over after losing 22 — 16. The deciding factor came in the last 9 second ' , when the Moline quarterback threw a desperation pass which was tipped up in the air; falling in the arms of the Moline end who was standing in the end zone. Crossing the river into Iowa, the Rock s brought home a welcomed victory; thus ending a 3 game losing streak. They defeated the Davenport West Falcons 14-7, with lighting fast offense and iron clad defense. Next in line was the Homecoming game, with the East Moline Panthers. The Rocks wasted no time in securing another victory, before a packed stadium. Putting on the best offensive show in a while, the Rocks dazzled the Panthers to the limit. When the final quarter ended the final score showed the Rocks 33, Panthers 14 . Traveling to Galesburg, senior Tom Murrens ignited the spark for the Rocks. Murrens caught one touchdown pass and kicked a 35 yard field goal. Murrens also had plenty of support from the rest of his teammates which gave the Rocks the winning margin of 22-13.

Foley who scored two touchdowns had plenty of support from Senior fullback Robert Johnson, who led the running attack with 67 yards rushing on 13 attempts. Ending the season with Davenport Central, the Rocks smooth offense was too much for the Bluedevils. The running of Senior halfback Ken Lee, Junior halfback Tony Scott, Senior fullback Robert Johnson, and the running and passing of Senior quarterback John Foley blitzed Central. Football 25
