1968 Recap

Written by: Big 33 Staff on August 10, 1968.


Harrisburg’s Jimmy Jones scored the only touchdown and Middletown’s Ed Tennis kicked the winning point as the East nudged the West 7-6 at Hershey.

Cedar Cliff’s Jerry Giffin also played a key role in the outcome. He broke through to block the extra point attempt by Gary Helman. Griffin also made the play which put the East in position to score. The West had to punt from deep in its own territory to open the second period. Tom Menie had a little trouble with the snap and Griffin pulled him down at the four-yard line before he could get the kick away.

Reading’s Tom Miller banged up the middle for two yards. Jones then faked to Miller and kept the ball to score from the two.

Bishop Egan’s Gary Gray led an East defensive unit that limited the West to 115 yards in total offense. The West did drive 74 yards for its only score late in the first half. Dennis Satyshur’s 20-yard pass and Lou Stangello’s 23-yard scoring run highlighted the drive.
