The running of Johnny Matthews and the triple threat performance of Robert Rybolt gave the A's the best start since 1909 six straight wins. Dean Morgan and Herb Smith led probably AHS's finest interior line in NCO history. Miles Strine's TD on a blocked punt won the Marion game. Although Bob Rybolt won the NCO scoring title with 25 points, they could not defeat NCO champs Mansfield even with Matthew's 88-yard kickoff return. The Orange & Black finished 5th in the NCO, but they had the best season record since the 1915 team. The first night game in AHS history was played against Marion at College Field, and the first Dads Game was played against Mt. Gilead.
