He is the scan of Mrs. Ruth Funkhouser of Chaxles Town and Justin Funk houser of Hagerstown. Funkhouser, a 175-pound left halfback, carried the ball 61 times for a total of 286 yards, a 4-2 average gain, and he was the COMPLIMENTS OF State's second high scorer with 64 points, nine touchdowns and five two-point conversions. Coach Lee M. McLaughli~, for- mer University of Virginia and Green Bay Packer tackle, consid- ers Funkhouser as probably bhe most va}uable back on the team. Mc~aughlin, who came to Wash- ington and Lee in 1957, has built up a strong team~from one which won only two games out of 31 play ed in four previo,~s seasoms. The "Generals" fiaished this season with a 3-4-1 record. The sophomore dominated team piled up 199 points, almost 25 a game and their total offense figure was a handsome 2,373 yards and 296,6 were the high men for the Kastle team, while Rice and Phillips were high men for the Bank of Char- les Town with 13 each, while t~9,w ors had 11. In the second game last Thrus- day evening the W. & R. Sales cagex:s scored a close 57-51 victory over the Moose Club. For the W. & R. team it was Chrisman wi~h 17 poi,nts who was high man While B. Hine had 13. For the Moose Club it was C. Hine and J. Bowers with I1 points,each who were high. per game. The losses were to Fran klin and Marshall, Hampden-81d- hey, Carnegie Tech and Sewanee. The wins came over Centre; Dick :inson and Washington and the tie we~t to Randolph-Macon. - With 34 of the 339 varsity play- ers returning in 1960, Coach Mc- Laughlin hopes for an even more improved season ~ext year and Funkhouser will be one of the players to watch. i!,?~ j'
