While 330 pupils moved into the new high school on Cottage Street, the football team played six home games at YMCA Field. They ran up eight wins with a record setting 44 touchdowns. It was one of the highest scoring backfields in AHS history: McDowell (108 pts), Garman (60 pts), Miller (48 pts), and Ilger (42 pts). The passing combination of Clarence Miller to Wayne McDowell made many long gains. Don Smith made a dramatic flying tackle to save the Galion game. The A's missed a chance at the school record in the Wellington game. While scoring 12 TDs none of the extra points were counted because of the coaches dispute over the manner of kicking the PATs. Nonetheless, Wayne McDowell became the first 100-point scorer for AHS. It was a record that would stand until Dick Dauch broke it in 1959. Lineman Paul Dessenberg returned a fumble recovery 102-yards for a TD in the Mt. Vernon game. It is still the longest recorded fumble recovery return on the OHSAA records in Ohio.
