Coach Taylor's speedy team ran up a 5-game win streak that caused Loren Tibbals to scribble "the 1910 record of 8-1 was within reach." It was an exciting season of long runs by Mike Glasser, Cliff Hurst's 88-yard TD against Tiffin, and QB-Capt Bob Harpster's passes to Don Drebus and Carl Strine. Crowds packed Redwood Stadium 3,000 at Homecoming and upwards of 4,500 to see the Shelby classic. Norm Fierbaugh sprinted for 185-yards to whip the Whippets. With six wins and only eight seniors the A's pigskin picture looked bright.
