That undefeated GHS season

Letter from the community


To the Editor:

On Veterans Day 1963, 50 years ago, Goldendale High School closed the football season with a 33-0 win over White Salmon. This win gave the GHS 1963 football team a rare feat of finishing an athletic season undefeated, with an 8-0-1 record.

At this time there was no state football playoff. GHS was third in the 1963 class A power poll.

We finished with such a good record because of an outstanding defense. In nine games we allowed only seven touchdowns and no field goals. We held our opponent scoreless in five of our nine games.

I have no idea of my personal stats, or those of any of my teammates, but we will always remember finishing the 1963 GHS football season undefeated.
