The A's returned to Myers Field for back-to-back undefeated seasons. They ran their win streak to 21 straight the longest streak in Ohio and a 15th place rating in the INS poll. Jim Roseboro again rushed for a thousand yards (1026) and was picked 1st team All-Ohio by the AP voters. In a battle of unbeatens the Shelby game with 3,800 spectators was the greatest victory since the 1940 Mansfield game. Co-Capt. Bill Springer's 93-yard kickoff return against Galion was the longest play of the season. Dave Grindle threw 9 TD passes. Coach Taylor was 8th in the balloting for Ohio Coach of the Year. Chuck Mather of Massillon, who won that INS ballot, was the Booster's football banquet speaker.
