    Here’s a little more MUCS history. How many remember the MUCHS football team of 1967 that won the Tri-Valley League Championship, going undefeated, scoring over 500 points on offense and allowing only 2 touchdowns on defense that whole season? What a team, with a front line with the likes of Boyd Kaler (meanest guard ever) and Rich Jankowski (best center ever), a quarterback with a rocket arm like John “Curly” Curtis, a virutally untackleable halfback like Glen Cole, speedsters like Danny “Booner” O’Hara (the “Booner Bomb” was an offensive play where Danny would run as fast as he could as far as he could downfield and John Curtis–who could barely see without his glasses–would find the blur that was Danny and hit him with a long pass–usually for a touchdown) and a long, lanky end like Larry Van Fleet–no wonder they were unbeatable.

      Much respect is given to the mid 1960’s MUCHS football teams. Let’s not forget the 1978 & 1979 championship teams that had a combined record of 14-0-1. Although the ’79 team only scored 372 points, there was at least one game where the opposing team threw in the towel before the game was complete. The ’79 team only gave up 16 points for the season.
      Much like the teams of the 1960’s, the ’78 & ’79 teams were comprised of many very good athletes that played as one unit. We were led by the option offense of Greg George and Bob Wyman. Receivers like Howard Hoke made some spectacular catches to balance out the offense. Of course there was a very solid offensive line that allowed it all to happen. One word describes the defense-Punishing! We just like to cleanly hit the opposing players…a lot.
      The ’78 & ’79 teams were the epitome of athletic dedication based on Mountie pride previously established by teams like those of the 1960’s.
