FOOTBALL - I9 5 3
The 1953 football team was truly one of which Victory could be proud. An undefeated season
brought City and Big Ten Championships and an official ranking of third best in the state,
With a number of veterans from the '52 team, Victory was made a preseason favorite.
The season opener with Fairmont West gave further notice that Victory had something.
Fighting the rain and a much heavier Fairmont line, the Eagles soared to a 14-6 victory. The
game featured T.D. runs by McCann and Roberti. A pass interception by Carey figured prominently
in the win. Led by Charles Beezel, Phil Messinger, Don Smith, and Clarence Legget, Victory's
determined line completely throttled the Polar Bear's attack.
Elkins was the next victim of the Mooremen to the tune of 14-0. Fleet-footed Ronald Carey
and an impenetrable defense proved the undoing ofthe stubborn Tigers. Bud Newbroudi and Chuck
Greathouse gave promise of the things to come with their sterling play.
Still improving the Eagles subdued the Bridgeport Indians 27-14 on the latter's home lot.
After some anxious early moments, the Eagles put on a dazzling display of speed. McCann raced
80 yards with a kick off return. Carey sped 90 yards on a pitch out, and Roberti went 50 yards
with a QB sneak. "Tuffy" Knight menaced the Bridgeporters with his offensive stabs and his
Weston offered little more than token resistance on dust-laden Hite Field. The Victory
combination of McCann, Carey, and "Sonny" Harris with the deft handling of quarterback "Bob"
Roberti had little trouble racking up 33 points. Ted Bow and Ronnie Thorne showed to advantage.
Tom Wyckoff became the second victim retired to the sidelines with injuries.
West Union was the scene of the Eagles next battle. Valiant undefeated Doddridge proved
a real test for the Eagles' claws. A more experienced and confident team emerged with a 20-7
victory. The backfield played with its usual brilliance. The defensive play of Jerry Stackpole,
"Tuffy" Knight, and Chuck Greathouse was equally good. Sam Hilton courageously played the
full game with a broken hand.
R.W. met Victory at Hite field in an inter-city clash. The game proved but a tune up for
the following week with Shinnston.
The Eagles won with the future Eagles seeing much service. Mammoth Tom Fittro, Doug
Alexander, George Beezle, and Jack Wells gave promise of good things to come.
One of the largest crowds in the history of Hite Field witnessed the Shinnston-Victory game
of 1953. Showing the poise of champions, the Victory Eagles dominated the Spartans. The score
of 7-0 was no indication of the superiority of the Victory forces who rolled up a huge statistical
margin. The entire Victory forward wall ,of Charles Beezle, Chuck Greathouse, Ronnie Thorne,
Bud Newbrough, Clarence Leggett, Ted Bow, Don Smith, and Jesse Vasquez played superbly.
lt was one of the finest defensive displays in the school's history.
A game upset minded Fairmont East team gave the Mooremen a battle before succumbing
20-0. "Woody" Coffindaffer proved an able replacement for "Tuffy" Knight, who was added to
the injury list early in the game.
On November 6 Victory journeyed to Buckhannon and whipped the Buccaneers 33-25, With
the W.I. game only five days off and many of the boys on the casualty list, CoachhMoore used
reserves plentifully. The team was, helped with the return of Sam Hilton and Phil Messinger
to the line up.
The 1958 W.I.-Victory game was typical of this traditional game. With the City and Big
Ten Championship and possible state honors hanging in the balance, the injury-ridden Eagles
emerged victorious 13-6, The senior members of the squad performed admirably. Don Smith
playing for the first time in the backfield made a touch down and several nice gains. .Toe Perri
in a substitute role played his usual fine game.
From this gallant and talented group of football players it is difficult to cite certain in-
dividuals for recognition. They merged withtheteam so completely that they were lost as in-
dividuals. Bob' McCann received all-state recognition and richly deserved it. Even Bob is the
first to admit that several other boys were equally deserving. The fact that more boys did not
receive recognition as individual stars is the best tribute that can be paid to this group of all-

Following in the wake of a successful football season, most of the same players faced the
basketball season with equal confidence. With sevenlettermen returning from the previous basket-
ball year, the season opener with Doddridge was successful.
During the holidays the Eagles continued to roll with three hard earned victories. On
foreign floors Buckhannon-Upshur and Elkins were beaten with last quarter rushers. Early
developments showed a well balanced team of many players of equal ability.
After the holidays, consecutive victories over Weston and Doddridge gave rise to speculation
over a possible undefeated basketball team. R.W. destroyed this hope with an overtime 61-59
victory at the R.W. gym.
The Eagles came back strong with consecutive wins over Spencer and East Fairmont be-
fore again stumbling to a strong Shinnston team 62-60 at the Carmichael Auditorium.
The Eagles then proceeded to rack up 10 straight victories. ln the course of this string
of victories the Eagles duplicated their football accomplishment of winning the Big Ten Champion-
ship. High on the list of accomplishments was a clean sweep of the Fairmont West series for
that team's only two season losses.
W.I. pinned a loss on the Eagles in the final game and grabbed the City Laurels.
The 1953-54 basketball team has been a high scoring, well balanced aggregation. Every
team scoring record in the history of the school has been erased.
Such standout seniors as Phil Messinger, Bob Roberti, "Tuffy" Knight, John Spatafore,
Clarence Leggett, Earnest Huffman will be remembered for a long time in the annals of Victory

To maintain and support school spirit in athletics and in any other way for the betterment of the
high school and to select the cheerleaders is the purpose of the Spirit Committee.
As a money-making project this year, the Spirit Committee sold programs at the football games.
The cheerleaders collected the ads for these programs. Much of this money is used for the purchase
of new uniforms for the varsity cheerleaders. They also sponsored a dance following the Victory-W.I.
This school year of 1953-54 has been one of the most successful for the Spirit Committee.
The five lassies pictured at the left are to
be given much credit for the victories won
by the football and basketball teams. With-
out their efforts of real hard cheering,
the Eagles could never have had the record
which they made for Victory,

On the first day of April, 1954, a huge blue flying saucer with long, streamlined while
stripes landed on top of Ray's Snack Bar. The landing was spectacular, An array of yellow,
green, and pink sparks flew up as it landed. A twenty foot ladder came out, and a little man
with a worried look emerged. I was standing on the front steps and was so astonished, I could
hardly move. He looked around, and thai he saw me. He started up the front steps. This
amazed me as he didn't look like a senior. He greeted me with "Ollen Ropa", a typical Martian
greeting. Then he asked me if I was a senior. I said "yes", He handed me a huge purple book
with gold lettering. It contained a record of what the senior class of 1954 had done up to the
year 1984. At once, I began eagerly to examine the book to see what my fellow students had
On the first page, it showed a picture of the great hospital that was built by Ruth Hall and
Pauline Ganoe. Under the picture were the names of several of the nurses. Among these were
Ann Barberio, Julia Brown, Patty West, Faye Grandstaff. Three of the doctors were Charles
Beezel, John wilt, and Harry Richards, who have recently found aacure for cancer. One of the
patients was Joe Perri, who had been hit by a foul tip which was hit byanother outstanding base-
ball player, Robert Patterson, a pitcher for the Space Patrol League, which is coached by the all
famous John Anania.
In the room adjoining Perri's was Pat Fortney, an experimental automobile driver, who
had had a blowout at 600 miles per hour. His jet powered engine was invented by Sam Stewart.
They will be out and well in no time, thanks to the new medicine discovered by the two famous
pharmacists, Eugene J aumot and Delores Greathouse.
On another page, I saw an article telling of Eugene Kopp and Shirley Swisther bringing in
another oil well on their million dollar ranch. Their foreman is Martha Scotchie, whose daily
job is to round up the cattle. Kopp and Swisher sell their oil to "Bud" Newbrough and Carl
Dumcan who own an oil refining company. Henry Palmer is their chief chemist.
On the far sideof the ranch is the rocket testing ground. The rocket ships invented by Rudolph
Hamric, Okey Bailey, and Lester Norris are tested by Ronald Carey, Donald Criss, Donald Nor-
man, and Ralph Marshall. These tests were covered by Jean Marano, a newspaper reporter, and
Helen Lambernedis, a television commentator,
Another topic which came to my attention was the new turnpike from Glen Falls through
North View to Reynoldsville, which had been built by James Richards and surveyed by William
Located on the turnpike was the famous night club, "The Blue Peacock" owned by "Buddy"
Coffindaffer and Larry Davisson. Some of the famous entertainers are Claudette Murphy and
.Taqueline Hays, pianists, Rhea Rogers, a world renown ballerinag and La Donn Martin, a singer.

On the last page was the story of an atomic powered eggbeater which was invented by Donald
Flowers with the aid of Ellen Nestor and Rosetta Fuggiano.
I closed the book and the man took it, got in the flying saucer, and took off. He left me
wondering--would this be what the future holds for the 1954 class of Victory High School????????
