DB COPELAND Roger '68 '67-'68 Two time All-City selection.  5'8" 135lb wiry back who could track a ball in flight and sting like a bee when it came down.  NHS career leader in career interceptions and most interceptions in a season--records that have stood for 40 years.

DB CROWE Eddie '66 '66 5'10" 135lb string bean who "pound-for-pound" was the hardest hitter on the team.  Intercepted 6 passes as a senior.  Sealed upset victory over top-ranked Bloomington in '66 with interception on NHS 10 yard line and less than two minutes to play to preserve 7-0 lead.
