against Newberry, despite loosing the ball five times from four fumbles
and an interception.
Quarterback Ray Hannon, the offensive leader for the Bulldogs,
completed six of 13 passes for 119 yards. The big play that'put the
Bulldogs on the scoreboard was a 67 yard pass to Ken Reid.
The running against the Indians was exceptional. Scott Thompson
and George Gilliam were the key key ball carriers along with Hannon.
The rushing yardage was 179 compared to 115 for Newberry. Also GW
went to the air for 119 yards compared to 78 for their opponents.
The defensive unit led by Co-captain Woody Fish, dampened (he

Smith, George Foster, Richard Grissom, along with Fish put a stopper
in the Indian funning attack. Defensive back Rick Wofford displayed

Voice Of The Bulldogs
The Gardner - Webb College
“Bulldog Band” got its start as
the Boiling Springs Community
Band, consisting of students ' from
elementary through College. They
were rather large and came com
plete with their own uniforms.
The band was under the direction
of its founder, Mr. J. Y. Hamrick,
a music instructor at the college.
After his untimely death in 1957,
the community band interest went
down and finally they disbanded.
There was no band until 1963
when Mr. Jerry Hill was acquired
as a music instructor. Dr. Hill
said, “I went to my first football
game in 1963 and was shocked
to hear that half-time entertain-
njent consisted of a record being
played over the public address
system. Needless to say the col
lege needed something better so
The band started that fall with '
18 members and numbers have
increased through the years in ex
cess of 35.
The band is continuing to grow
