trophiesJimmy Hosmer was chosen as Best Back of the 1963 season; David Houston was named Most Valuable Player. The two were presented trophies by Head Coach Paul Quinn at the annual football banquet.

Unfortunately, many of the students who participated on the 1963 football team, or as cheerleaders and majorettes, were not included in the photographs made available to Chattooga Photo History. We regret leaving so many out of this feature.

Thanks to my brother-in-law, Robert "Lefty" Norton, for helping identify his fellow Indians.
