Coach Vaughn’s comments on the players: Harry Venters, one of our most consistent ball carriers, and one of the best all around players.

Jack Jenkins, a senior play boy who showed up on the grid as a player, as well as a lady’s man.

R.B. Slone, a seventh grader who made a place for himself in the lineup by hard playing. His saying: “Get out of that ditch, baby doll.”



Winfred Sisk, the guy that gets three men at a time.

Homer Conley, Sylvester Allen, Tony Vertuca, Oscar Watson, Ralph Richardson, and Joe Gibson have certainly contributed their part for the team this year.

Darrel Sisk and Fred Conley are two seniors that are too good to lose.

Francis Johnson, a good “bet” for next year.

Head Coach – Vincent Vaughn. Assistant Coach Walter Enlow.
