League-leading Bucyrus to entertain Truckers tomorrow evening
The Norwalk High Truckers face another stiff test tomorrow night, this time against the best team in the league. The Bucyrus Redmen, definitely the surprise team of the loop, will do the entertaining.
The Truckers are actually faced with two battles to fight and one is with themselves. Over the past four weeks, the Norwalk High club has lost so many close ones that it is getting to be almost automatic. Actually for the potential they started with on the practice field in August, they have made tremendous strides on both offense and defense.
Coach Tony Zuppe’s crew has lost its last three games in a row, all to Northern Ohio League opponents, but none of them have been scores that they should be ashamed of for having only six lettermen back from a team that lost six of nine games last year.
Coach Zuppe will start basically the same offensive unit as last week. The ends will be Dale Sweet and Steve Cook, while the tackles are Denny Keefer and Eric Albright. Guards are Bill Barker and either Tom Roth or Gary Betz, and the center is Tom Temple.
Quarterbacking the club will be Dave Ross, while Rick Kohlmyer and Scott Hill will work at the halfbacks. The fullback with be Taylor Hart. He will get some help from Bob Perkins.
