Highlights included: Brad Miller is a unanimous selection to the Evansville Courier All-City Team at Linebacker and David Stewart, in a tribute to his explosiveness and great skills, is selected at running back despite playing in only seven games.
Stewart erupted at the start of the season running for 118 yards or more in five of the first six games. His 193 yard performance against Reitz was highlighted by a 71 yard touchdown run. The following week versus Mater Dei he broke through for a 75 yard score. David M. Brown knocked through 3 field goals on the season.
Lost in the first winless season in school history was the fact that the Huskies were seconds away from two early season victories. Brown had a field goal attempt sail wide on the last play of regulation versus Bosse with the scored tied at 6. North converted a 25 yard field goal on the initial possession of OT to take a 9-6 lead but gave up a game winning TD to Bosse on their possession.
Against Central, Stewart plunged in from the 2 with 1:13 remaining and pulled within a two-point conversion of forcing Over Time only to come up short on the extra point attempt.
The season's low point occurred in the final game when Henderson County, leading 28-0 with two seconds to play in the first half, took two intentional delay of game penalties to set up a school record field attempt for their kicker--a 42 yard effort that he made as the gun sounded. Feeling that the Colonels were disrespecting them, the Huskies decided to take out their frustration when Henderson County next kicked off.
Newspaper accounts describe North's front line as allowing their Colonel opponents to run downfield unrestricted following the kickoff and then jointly 'blocked' Henderson County's kicker into the ground. This event set off a series of unsportsmanlike conduct calls that continued throughout the remainder of the game. The hostilities reached their height when the Colonels lined up to attempt a 50 yard field goal late in the third quarter. The kick sailed wide right as the Huskies were collectively called for roughing the kicker. All told North was penalized over 150 yards in the second half alone. Ultimately, both teams finished the game with their reserves playing in order to lessen the tensions.
DEFENSE--2 pts each for solo, cause or recover fumble, sack, int, blk kick; 1 pt each for assist and tackle for loss
