team that worked together. By the time the first game rolled around lie hid il:
A. H. S. "FOOFl9all SPCCial,' in good running order, and he placed oii the held

this order! Den Howe. fullbacks Par Joy, and Bai ofebsin, halfbacks .ma ciiact
Parnell, quarterback. Frank Durant and Wilfred Smith, ends, Wolcott and Rob-

The fall of 1925 was about the first season that A. H S could boast of l '

enough candidates for two teams. The success of our able subs made our tctni
always victorious and with but one defeat and one scoreless tie with West Spring-
field. This game was played under almost impossible conditions.
The first game was played with Agawam at Agawam. The A. H. S. "Special"
was victorious by the score of 26-7. Pat Joy our Heety backfield Ace gave a good
account of himself. Agawam was only able to score two first downs showing
the power of our line. .
The most evenly fought game of the season was with Orange at Orange.
Jim Parnell the A. H. S. Field General and all-round man carried the ball across
in the final quarter of the game.
The next game we suffered our only defeat of the year. Northampton came
to .Amherst with a fast and heavy team but we managed to hold them l2'e6. Pat
Joy scored in the first period of play from the thirty-yard line. Elmer Holden our
fighting center played a great game by holding Hamp. for downs on the one-foot
line. Rhiney Britt and Roger Wolcott played a remarkable game getting many
tackles on their sides of the line. '
The next game was with South Hadley Falls and we emerged with 21 27-7
victory. A. H. S. machine seemed a little off form but Den Howe formed 21 200d

The next two games we lost by close scores. The first was with Central lligh
School of Springfield. A last minute rally by Amherst made them feel uneasy.
Bill Grebbin our substitute was the high score for Amherst. The second ganie
was with Hopkins at Hopkins. The absence of a few of our players due to break-
ing rules caused our defeat and this game seemed the turning point of the league.
By the next game the team was organized again as a unit and defeated Smith
School. Capt. Chick and Smithie were the chief offensive.
