Cbarlie. bn It was the hour of decision Monday night for the coaches of the six schoolboy football teams who participated in the Bi-State Conference play in the 1966 sea- son when they, along with the principals and coaches of all ten schools in the conference, met for their Winter meeting at Shady Rest restaurant on U. S. Routell, north of Martinsburg. It was the time for the coaches to sit down and make their selections for the Al,l-Conference teams and Jeffer- son County's two representatives in the league- Shel~herdstown and Harpers Ferry--faired excep- tionally well in the selections with each team having three players named to the first team, each collecting two berths on the second team and each playing four men on the third team. Shep- herdstown had two boys in the honoruble mention class ~nd Harpers Ferry one. Named to the first team from Harpers Ferry were Lorne Pope and John Fox, two fine Tiger tackles, who played a maior role in the 6-2-1 record which the Ti- gers chalked up during the sea- son; and Sago Garrett, the lead. ing scorer for the Tigers and one of the leading scorers in the sec- tion and a.rea, as a halfback. Pope, and Garrett are seniors, while Fox is only a junior. The Shepherdstown representa- tives on the first team were Ricky Wright, one of the finest little high school players in the entire area, who was a power on both the offense and defense for the Cardinals; Max Moore, a standout interior guard and Ron Kidrick. the Cardinals' high scor- ing fullback, who was also one of the leading scorers in the section and area. Wright and Moore are seniors and Kidrick a sopho- more. Named to the Conference sec- ond team from Shepherdstown were Ron Russell. an outstandin,g iunior and Paul Brown and big Junior tackle: and from Harpers Ferry were Steve D'Angelo, a fine defensive junior tackle and Lee Battea er junior qua who proved to be one of the best. passers, signal callers and runners' in the section and area.
