Starn's "Mudhens" finished in a second place NCO tie. When speedster Jim Jesson returned the opening kickoff for an 82-yard TD, they beat Bucyrus for the 4th time in 16 years. The A's forced 3-way State Champion Mansfield to use their first team for the entire game. The game was played for a third straight year in a snowstorm, so the Athletic Board decided to end the Thanksgiving Day games. Graduation took nine seniors and Harry Smith, who finished a brilliant four-year career. However, the future looked "rosy" with returning all-NCO's John Depler and Nick Dolby. Also, the Junior Kids league began the next season as a feeder program for the JV and Varsity teams.
