to the Shelby Hi^ School Footfall team; They have
just completed a most successful.season, winning seven^-sN y^'
games tying one, and losing one, Shelby lost the first^
game of the season to Hickory, Conference Champions, They then won six
games in a rov/ defeating Nevrbon, Gaffney, Forest City, Cherryville, Mor-\_-|
ganton, and Lenoir, They next played a 7 ~ 7 tie with Lincolnton,
Friday, night, November 19th at Shelby, the home team ended the season
with a 34 ~ 0 victory over,Bessemer City, The out-standing players for
the season were Eddie Tillman and Bobby Reynolds in the backfield and
”Shep" Hamrick in the line. All the other players did well but space wilJ
not peimit mention of all their names. The coaches ”Casey" Morris and _
3j0yd Little deserve special credit for their job of taking a team v/hich for the most
part was green c?jid inexperienced and molding them into an efficient working machine.
