        L!J   wenty-six Southern California high schools, which help make up the large
              schools (AAAA-AAA) section of the C.l.F., are represented on this yearts
              All-Southern California large Schools Football Team for the 1960 season o
  The Helms All-Southern California Board of Athletics, composed of sports journal-
  ists from Santa Barbara to San Diego, select the All-Southern California High
  School football teams, and have done so since the board's iriception back in 19370
              There was much discussion among board members before an All-Southern
  California prep school "player of the yearn was selected. Finally, the board n.a:rc.ed
  Jim Murphy, center-lin'ebacker of the AAAA champion Santa Barbara eleven, as the top
  performer in major ClF ranks this past year. The selection of Murphy marks OI1~y
  the second time in the history of the Helms selections that a lineman has been
  picked as "player of the year". San Diego High's Charlie Powell, an end, was the
 board's selection back in 1950.
              Coach Sam Cathcart, former long Beach, Santa Barbara College and San
 Francisco 4gers gridiron performer, calls Murphy the finest football player we've
 had at Santa Barbara. This, of course, takes in performers like Peter Zucco,
  "player of the yearn in 1940 and Ernie Zampese, University of Southern California
 star, who was top CIF player pick in 1953. Murphy, not an imposing physical
 speciman at 5'10" and 175-pounds, is described as a "terror" on the field. To list
 Murphy over such a proven star as Marv Goux, who went on to star at USC, shows
 what Santa Barbarans think of Jim Murphy. Jim served as team captain in 1960 and
 led the Dons to the AAAA Championship of the ClF, with a 19-6 win over Centennial
 in the finals.
              Jim Murphy will receive his "player of the year" medal award at the 24th
 annual All-Southern California Board of Football Awards Program to be held at Heims
 Hall on Saturday morning, January 14, at 10:30 a.m. All players named for A1l-St~r·
 team honors, both large and small elF as well as Los Angeles City section selec-
 tions, will be presented with framed scroll awards from All-Southern California
 Board of Athletics. Murphy will also have his name engraved upon the Paul H. Helms
 Trophy, which is permanently lodged in Helms Hall, Los Angeles.
             As might be suspected, Santa Barbara. led the parade in placing men on the
 honor teams. Rod Dowhower, 6'2", 210-pound senior quarterback who operated Sam
 Cathcart's offense to perfection, was named in the backfield on the first teai'D.,!'
 while end Gary Hart made the third squad. Eight schools, including runner-up Cen-
 tennial, placed two players on the teams.
             Escondido, San Diego area champion, placed its fine quarterback Doug Ben....
 nett on the first team. He completed 98 of 155 passes for 1,577 yards and 17 TDs
 during an 11 game season. Centennial's QB Larry Todd, top performer for Aaron
 \iade I s Coast League champions made the first eleven, as did long Beach Wilson 1 s
 Bob Bailey, who amassed 1,003 total yards in eight games. Riverside's fullback
 Bob Horacek, fine all-around performer, made the top eleven, also. All players
 named to this season's first team are seniors.
             Two players from last year's AII-CIF teams are back this year. Ron Gold....
 man, Monrovia guard on the second team in 1959, was picked on the first team thi:::
 season. Warren Jackson of Santa Ana, a second-team back in '59, repeated in his
 position this fall.
             Along with the top players of 1960, CIF championship coaches will receive
 special awards. Sam Cathcart (Santa Barbara), Robert Embrey (Escondido), Ernie
 Johnson (El Rancho) and those small ClF high school coaches who won titles, vJjJ.l
 be remembered with awards.

               Los Angeles High School, Banning High placed three players on this yaar's
               edition of the All-los Angeles City Football Team, including ItP1ayer of
    the Year" selection Richard Daniel Espalin. The 5 !7", 160-pound senior tai1bac!.t
    received no opposition as the city's top gridiron performer for 1960, as members
    of All-Southern California Board of Football met at Helms Hall to make their 1960
    all-league and all-city selections. This marked the 24th year that Helms Hall f s
    prep board of athletics has selected the official Al1-·Los Angeles City Football
    Team.
               Twenty-one Los Angeles City High Schools are represented on this year's
    three squads, composed of 12 players each. There was little time consumed in
    balloting for the 1960 player of the yearc Danny Espalin was a unanimous choice
    and the senior tailback from Banning certainly demonstrated his greatness in the
    city finals, when he netted 116 yards in 12 carries for three TDs, passed for t~~
    more, while personally accounting for 30 of his team i s 57 points • With the Romans
    scoring 26, the combined total of 83 points was a city play-off record~
               Over the season Danny Espalin completed 47 of 94 passes for 821 yards
    and 13 touchdowns. He carried the ball 94 times for 767 yards, 12 touchdowns and
    an 8 e 2 average. His total offense mark was 1,588 yards. Co-coaches Paul Huebner
    and Gene Vo1lnogle, who have directed the Pilots to a remarkable 38-4 won-lost
    record over the past four seasons, speak in glowing terms of their fire c~acke~
    tailback. Danny was one of three captains directing the Banning team this year
    and was as fine a runner as seen anywhere in city ranks.
               Danny Espalin will receive his los Angeles City "Player of the Year" a"V'Tard
    at the 24th Annual All-Southern California Board of Football Awards Program, to be
    held at Helms Hall on Saturday morning, January 14 at 10:30 am. All-Los Angeles Cit:}'
    players, along with those selected to the All-Southern California High School teams
    will receive their 1960 scroll awards at this time.
               Five schools placed three 1960 gridiron stars on the honor teams. Champion
    Banning, runner-up Los Angeles,l''Jest Valley League runner-up Birmingham, Eastern
    League champion Roosevelt and ~~estern titlist, Hollywood. Just one player, Chuck
    Markham of Birmingham, is back from last year's teams o He was a second-team pick
    in 1959.
               Eight league "Player of the Year" selections were named to either the
    first or second teams. Van Nuys' Jim Honberger, East-Valley League top selection,
    was a first team pick, as was Raymond Chavez, Roosevelt f S co-captain and halfback o
    Olvin Moreland, who scored 80 points for the Romans of L.A., High during the season:
    was named to the first team and also Thomas Lupo, top player in the ~vest VallejT

      Banning High School, 1JIarine League Champions for 1960, and one of the strong-
 est teams in the school' s history, placed four players on the All-Marine League
 team as members of the Helms All-Southern California Board of Athletics met at
 Helms Hall to make their annual gridiron selections. Placing two linemen -- end
 Jim Arens and tackle Richard Reed -- and two backs -- Danny Espalin and Charles
 Jackson - on the first team, Banning also placed four players on the second team e
      Paul Huebner and Gene Vollnogle, co-coaches of the all-powerful Pilots over
 a period of the past four years, speak in glowing terms of their star tailback,
 Danny Espalin, who was a unanimous selection as league player of the year. Danny
 was one of three captains of the Banning team during 1960 and was most adept in
 the running department. The 5 1 7, l60-pound scatback scored 54 points during the
 full season and 42 points during league play.
       This marked the fourth year in a row that Banning has won the !'Iarine I.eag'11e
 title. The Pilots wound up the season with a 4-0 in league play and were strong
 contenders for the los Angeles City grid championshi:p. Behind Banni.."l'}S in the
 league standings came San Pedro (3-1), Jordan (1-1-2), Gardena (1-3-1) and Nar-
 bonne (0-3-1). The Pilots had one of the finest defensive records in the city in
 1960, allowing but 37 points to be scored on them, while accounting for 115 points.
       Only three lower classmen were named on this year's All-Marine League team.
 One on the first team, Narbonne's center Jesse Gutierrez, and two on the second,
 Stuart Dahlager (Narbonne) and Ronnie Charles (Jordan). Just one repeater was
 named from last year - Gardena's Sheldon Keith at center - and he was again put
 at the second-team center post.
       All players named to the All-Marine League first and second teamfJ for J.960
 will be recipients of Helms All-Southern Califomia Board of Football scroll
 awards, recognizing them for their outstanding play in Los Angeles City football
 over the past season. Player of the year, Danny Espalin, will receive his out-
 standing player medal award at the 24th Annual Football Awards program" to b~ held

       Louis Birnbaum's Sheiks from Hollywood High School fashioned a perfect 5-0
 season and placed six players on the All-Western League first team as All-Southern
 California Board of Football members cast their annual grid ballots at Helms Hall
 last week. It was impossible. for board members to separate the achievements of
 two stalwart Hollywood players - quarterback George Powell and center Dick Cummins
 - so they were named co-players of the year in Western loop play.
       Powell" a 6' ~ l75-pound itA" student, is an outstanding ball handler, passer
 and runner, in the opinion of his coach. Dick Cummins~ ;'10, lBO-pound offensive
 center and linebacker, performed nobly as a blocker and was all over the field on
 defense. For having been named as co-players of their league~ George Powell and
 Dick Cummins will both receive player of the year medal awards at the 24th annual
 All-80uthem California Board of Football awards program to be held at Helms Hall
 on Saturday morning, January 14, at 10:30 am.
       Five of last year's All-Westem League players are on this season's squads.
 Dick Crotsley, 14estchester t s fine end, is the only first-team repeater from '59,
 with Erik Whitaker and Rod Lipscomb moving up to the first team from last year's
 second squad. Bill Burns and Jon Kinsey were both named to the second team in
 1959 as in 1960.
       This year t s All-Western League first team is composed entirely of seniors.
 Only one junior was named to the second team, tackle John Hall of Ho~lywoodli
       With Hollywood winning the league title (5-0), Ilestchester pJ..2.ced secord
  (4-1), Hamilton (3-2), Venice (2-3), University (1-4) and Fairfax (0-5). The
 Sheiks also won the Western crown in 1959, with a perfect 5-0 mark o
       All-League players will receive scroll awards from All-Souther!; Ca:ifor£-':.a
 Board of Football, as they have over past years. These awards wiJ~ be preseYl"',j,?d
 to the players by their coaches at the high schools.
       All-Southern California Board of Athletics has been sponsored by Helms Ath-
 letic Foundation since 1937. Ever since that time, medals and scrolJ.s have been
 presented to high school athletes, as selected by the board. High School Hall of
