                               steve Grady who led the Cubs to their first-ever CIF Football
                      championship in 1962, was acclaimed Southern California's grid perfonner
         of the year by vote of the Helms All-Southern California Board of Football when the
         annual all-star team selections were made at Helms Hall recently.
                      This marks the second year in a row that a Loyola player has been selec-
         ted top player, as Paul Horgan was honored last year. Al Pollard, named player of
         the year in 1945 and 1946, is the only other Loyola gridder to be chosen for top
         player acclaim from the Loyola High campus.
                      A 6' 203-pound power-running tailback in coach Lew Stueck's single-wing
         formation, Steve'Grady re-wrote all the grid records at Loyola this year. He has
         scored more points (217), gained more yards in total offense (2,835), carried the
         ball more (319), scored more touchdowns (35 in 12 games), and gained more yards
         rushing (2,097) than any player in Loyola. grid history. This includes the fabled
         Al Pollard, two-time player of the year in 1945-46 and last year's CIF top performer
         Paul Horgan.
                      Grady scored 152 points during the regular season and added 65 more in
        four playoff encounters. The Loyola Cubs defeated Bellflower (45-7), North Torrance
         (20-13), Glendale (7-0) and Anaheim (14-3). In the finale, it was Grady who scored
        all but one of the Cubs' points and was named "player of the game n for his efforts.
                      steve Grady will be presented with his special medal award from All-
        Southern California Board of Football at the 26th annual All-Southern California
        Board of Football Awards Program to be held at Helms Hall on Saturday morning, Jan.
        19 at 10:30 a.m. All players named for All-Southem California all-star team honors
        will be on hand to receive their special framed scroll awards.
                      Thirty southland high schools are represented on this year's honor teams,
        with Loyola. and Glendale placing three players and Anaheim and Centennial landing two
        each. The champion Cubs placed player of the year Grady in the first-team backfield
        and tackle Tim Hombecker in the line. Glendale, defeated by Loyola in the semi-
        finals, 7-0, also placed a back" Paul Nyquist, and a lineman, tackle Bob Gilleran, on
        the first team. Anaheim placed end Ty Salness on the first team and tackle Roy Lu-
        trull on the second unit. Centennial landed end Emmitt Littleton on the second
        squad and quarterback Karl Dawkins on the third team.
                     Only one lower classman found his way onto the 1962 all-star team selec-
        tions. Santa Monica's ace guard-linebacker, Rick Bassler, is not only the smallest
        player. on the three unite, but he also has the distinction of being the only junior
       to be selected for honors.
                     Gary Walker, quarterback of the Santa Fe League champion Bishop Amat
       Lancers, became the only CIF all-star team repeater among large school players when
       his team was moved up into "AAAII Division play. Walker was a first-team "small
       schools" selection in 1961. The lancers marched through "AAAn playoff competition
       until they reached the final game against South Pasadena. In a bitter battle, the
       Tigers from South Pasadena downed the determined lancers, 27-20.
                     Besides the players, coaches will also be on the receiving end of awards
       on January 19th. Coaches Lew stueck (Loyola) and Ray Solari (South Pasadena) will
       be recipients of silver tumbler awards for leading their teams to division titles.

  schools) High School Football Player ot the Year by members of the Helms All-South-
  em ca.1if'omia Board of Football when the board met at the Helms Athletic Founda-
  tion t.o make its annual gridiron all-star team selections. Some 26 southland high
  schools are represented on this year's squad - three teams of 12 players each -
  picked from among those schools which played in leagues bracketed in the "small
  schools", "A" and "AAft divisions ot the C.I.F. playoffs. The Helms Board first
  picked "small schools" all-star teams in football in 1951.
                Robert Baiz's Fermin-tasuen Padres placed the most reprGsFntatives on
  the three honor teams, with tour players, three of them on the first team. Lasuen
  won the "AAtI division playoff's, downing runner-up St. Monica's, 1+0-7. st. Monica's
  placed three boys on the honor teams, while Brea-olinda, champion in nA" Division
  play, also placed three. Bob McCUtcheon's Mustangs from Needles, "small school"
  division title winners over Lutheran, 1.3-9, placed two men. Only other teams to
  place as many as two players on the teams were Laguna Beach and Carlsbad, the
  latter winner of San Diego 1 s Palomar League title.
                Small schools player of the year honors were accorded Hemet High School
 halfback, Ken Martin, who led his Bulldogs teammates to a championship season in
 the De Anza League and ten straight victories. Hemet met Laguna in the "A" group
 playoffs, dt'Opping a hard-tought 14-13 decision t. the Artists, who went on to
 the finals, losing to Brea-olinda, 32-7.
                Martin, a 5 1 10", 190-pound, Jon Amett-type runner, scored 132 points
 for the season and passed for eight touchdowns. He ran for over 1,000 yards, as
 he did last year as a first team CIF performer, and gained much additional yardage
 for his team through the air lanes. Over the past two seasons Ken has been a great
 defensive player also, performing at either the halfback or safety positions. He
 intercepted nine tosses this season and 21 throws over the past two years. What
makes Ken I s achievements so remarkable this year is the fact that he was involved
 in a serious auto accident last year during Christmas vacation, requiring consider-
 able repair work to one of his legs. Ken's coach" Robert Owens" called his ace
 halfback better than ever this season.
               Martin will be presented with his player of the year medal award at the
26th annual All-Southem California Board of Football Awards Program to be held at
 Helms Hall on Saturday moming" January- 19, at 10:30 a.m. Ken will be joined by
 players and their coaches at the annual moming ceremony and luncheon, at which
time other personalities from the gridiron past will be on hand to pay tribute to
this season's star players.
               Besides Martin, two other first-team backfield selections were honored on
the all-star team last season. Tim Foley, Fermin-lasuen fullback, was a third-team
pick in '61, while Brea-olinda1s Al Davis was named to last year's second team. A
third team choice this year, steve Hovely of Villanova rep&l\ted his selection of
one year ago.
               Coaches of championship teams in 1962 - Loyolats Lew stueck (AAAA),
South Pasadena's Ray Solari (AM), Fermin Iasuen's Robert Baiz (AA), Brea-Qlinda
head coach Glen Hastings (A) and Needles' headman Bob McCutcheon (small schools) _
will be on the receiving end of silver tumbler awards for having directed their
re~pective teams to divisional titles.
               All first team picks on this year's "small schools" team are seniors.
1'"'u:u' juniors dot the second team roster, while two junior backs were honored en the
t~rd team.. The Helms All-Southem california Board of Athletics program has been

                      City                 Championship, winning
            Southe~ League championship and then advancing through the
            playoffs to a final-game victory over Marine-League co-champ
   Banning, 35-7. Coach Jim Blewett, coming back into city play this
   year with three players off last year's all-city team, made it 16 Los
   Angeles City Championships tor Manual Arts over the past 50 years,
   nine of them with the venerable Blewett at the helm.
            And i t was Manual Arts leading the parade when it came time
   to select the 1962 All-Los Angeles City grid teams. The Toilers had
   five representatives on the 1962 All-City selections, three on the
   first team. Birmingham, the city's highest .scoring team in league
   play with 171 points in five games, placed four of its stalwarts,
   with three of them gaining first team recognition.
            "Player ot the year" balloting was spirited during the Helms
   five-hour selection meeting, with San Pe~o tailback, Ronnie Barber,
   final~y winning the ooveted title.    Barber, an All-City ohoice last
   year, led San Pedro to a triple tie for first place in Marine League
   action this year and did not have the opportunity to compete in the
   playoffs due to a loss of the coin flip. Barber, a single-wing tail-
   back in coach Bill Seixas' versatile Pirate attack, had a 1,16l-yard
   total offense mark over the past season. Ron gained 843 yards running
   and completed 50 percent of his passes for an additional 318 yards.
   Last year, Barber was also named the Marine League's top performer
   and his two-year statistics show him accounting for 2,508 yards in
   total offense and 31 TDs. Of this total, 1,819 yards were gained
   rushing. Over a two-year span, Barber accounted for an average of
   179 yards per game in total offense and a six-yard average running.
            Ronnie Barber will reoeive his tlplayer of the year" medal
   award at the 26th annual All-Southern California Board of Football
   Awards Progrmn to be held at Helms Hall on Saturday morning, January
   19, at 10:30 a.m. At this ttme, all those boys named for All-Los
   Angeles City Football Team honors will'be presented with framed
   scroll awards from All-Southern California Board of Football           Q

            Twenty Los Angeles high schools are represented on this
   year's All-Los Angeles City team. Schools to place more than one
   performer on the honor teams are Manual Arts (5), Birmingham (4).ee
   two of them being juniors on the first team, San Pedro, Banning, Los
   Angeles, Fairfax, Gardena and Lincoln each with two.
            Six players on this year's All-City team were picked last
   season also. Manual Arts tackle, Harry Wells, and Ron Barber were
   1961 first team selections, while two of this year's first-team
   backfield -- Clayton Calhoun of Manual and Alex Sotomayor of Garfield
   -- were second team choices last fall. Third team end, Jerry Lewis
   from Manual, was second team piok last year and Sterling Mansfield,
   Birmingham center, was again named to the third team e
            Six juniors named to the three honor teams will have the op-
   portunity to shine on the gridiron again next season. Marv Adamo and
   Don McSwain, both of Birmingham, should make coach George Goff very

                                        Coach George Goff's Binmingham Braves marched straight through
                                  five west-Valley League opponents, scoring a city league high of 171
                                  points in the process, while allowing its opponents a mere 7 digits.
                                  It was no wonder then, that the Braves placed six players on the all-
                                  league first team when Helms' All-City Board of Football met at Helms
                                  Hall last week to pick its annual football teams.
                                       Coach Goff's Gladiators averaged 34 points in five league con-
                                  tests and a mere point and a half to its opponents. The Braves came
                                  into the City playoffs steamed up over the opportunity to make amends
                                  for last year's city finale loss to Manual Arts. Meeting in the first
                                  round, Manual had too many guns for the West-Valley champs, besting
                                  them, 32-20, however.
                                       And it was Birmingham1s DUdley Schusterick who hauled down "top
                                  player ft honors for 1962. The Braves' quarterback, who passed for 90
                                  of the 171 points scored by his team, was Coach Goff's main offensive
                                  weapon and the 5 r ll, 155-pounder certainly led his team to a most re-
                                  markable offensive season in 1962.
                                       A pair of Brave linemen -- Don McSwain and Sterling Mansfield _~
                                  are repeaters from last season's first all-league team. Marv Adamo
                                  and John Thomas, first team linemen on the t62 team, were on the SGC~

                                  Hills, are second team repeaters.
                                       The 1962 standings behind Birmingham were Canoga Park (3-2),

      The very strengthy Marine League wound up in a three-way tie for
first place in 1962 among San pedro, Banning and Gardena. Consequently
first-team representation on this year's All-Marine League Team is
split up pretty evenly among these stalwart elevens.
      Ron Barber, one of two juniors to make the All-City Team last year,
was a unanimous "player of the yearll choice for the second year in a
row. Last year, Ronnie scored 72 points and was the c1ty 's third high
scorer. He did just as well in 1962, posting 73 points on 12 TDe and
a . single· PAT. Barber played tailback on coach Bill Seixas' single-
wing powcJh~use. Coach Seixas calls Ron liThe greatest high school
player I have seen or coached in my 14 years in the business.                II

      The evenness of the play in the Marine League this year is quite
evident from the fact that four players each from Banning and Gardena
and three boys from san pedro were placed on the all-league first team.
Jordan end, John Wilkins, was the only "outsider" to break into the
first team lineup.
      Four players are back from last year's All-Marine teams. Ron Bar-
ber is ~e only first team repeater, while Banning's Eddie Kapu and Don
Horn of Gardena elevated themselves from the second team of last Year.
Gamalier Lesure of San pedro, a second-team selection this year, was
on the 1961 first team.
      ~e top three Marine League clUbs finished the regular season with
identical 3-1 records, while Jordan (1-3) and Narbonne (0-4) brought up
the rear. Banning, winner of the coin flip to get into the city play-
offs, beat Huntington Park, Eastern Loop king-pins, 26-13 and East-
valley co-champ poly, 20-13, before falling to mighty Manual Arts, 35-7.

      Surprising "little" Lincoln High School, winner of the Northern
League football title for 1962 and "tamer" of city champion Manual Arts
0-0 in the semi-finals of the city championships, placed five players
on the All-Northern League team as annual selections were made by the
Los Angeles City Board of Football at Helms Hall last week.
      Coach Skip Giancanell~smightymites topped their league in scor-
ing with 65 points and finished the regular campaign t-1i th a 4-1 mark.
Although not scoring as profusely as other city teams, Lincoln played
a ball control type of game and seemed able to come up with the big
play when needed. Lincoln fullback Tony Rosas and left half Tony Ko-
chinas proved to be coach Giancane1li's aces through most of the season
and provided the punch needed to control the ball. Noting this fact,
the Helms Board seleoted Rosas and Kochinas as "co-players of the year"
in Northern League action for 1962.
      Five players repeated from last year 1 s teams. Kochinas was a num-
ber one team selection last fall, while Rosas was on the second team.
Vic Ruiz of Marshall and Dennis Ballardo of Franklin woved up to the
first team fram the second one year ago.
      In the city playoffs, Lincoln defeated East-Valley Leaguo co-champ
Grant, 18-14, and then ttfell U to Manual Arts, 0-0, on the "more first
downs" rule. Northern League standings for 1962 were: Lincoln (4-1),
Verdugo Hills ()-l-l), Eagle Rock (2-1-2), Franklin (2-2-l), Belmont
(2-3). Marshall (0-5).
     All players named for 1962 Northern League honors will receive

     Ray Vernoy's Eastern League champions, Huntington Park High
School, led the way in placing players on the all-league te~ for
1962, when members of All-Los Angeles City Board of Football met at
Helms Hall to make their annual grid selections last week. H.P. had
a spotless league record, Winning five games while losing none. Gar-
field, last year's league champion, finished second to coach Vernoy's
club losing only once.
     The Helms Board deliberated for sane time over "player of the
year" honors for the Eastern League and then decided upon splitting
the laurels between Huntington Park's fine running back Richard Adams
and Garfield's Alex Sotomayor. The latter, coach Al Padilla's ace
quarterback, has been all-league for the past three seasons and was a
second team All-City selection last year.
     The diminutive Adams scored 62 points during 1962, making him the
sixth high-scorer in city league play. He gained 640 yards on the
ground and 296 through the air for a total offense mark of 936 yards
and a 6.9 yard average (on the ground).
     Alex Sotomayor has been the backbone of the Garfield attack for
the past three seasons. This year Alex passed for over 1,000 yards and
added 315 more running. For three years he has gained over 4,100
yards running end passing, with his passing accounting for 3,711 yards
and 31 touchdowns.
     Besides Sotomayo~, Wilson end John Be~okott, and South Gatets
able oente~ Gary Barth, both rareat on this year's first team. Wilson
t.ckle, Richard Lopez, named to the first team last year, was placed
on the second unit this fall. Roosevelt's James Espinoza repeated on
the second team.
     League scroll awards will be presented to all players nwned for
league honors by Helms Athletic Foundation. Scrolls will be mailed to
the schools for presentation by the coaches.
