with the performance of his
charges to date despite the fact
that the starting squad is made
up practically of all seniors.
“Last year we were somewhat
inexperienced but gained confi

hope that this is the year-we can
be in the thick of the Lake Erie
League title chase.”
The 1952 Cardinals won three
and lost three in league action.
Returning lettermen who have
pleased the Card’s coach include:
Dick Kohagen, 155-pound senior
and Bob Cathcart, a 170-pound
senior, both of whom are ends. The
tackles include seniors Dick Del
essandro and George Kalas, 215
and 235 pounds respectively. Ex

scales around 170, are Bob Morri
