The Independent, Thuriday, August 2», 19|4 P|0t 1 Football Facts Concerning W. Sioux When the 74 Falcons open the season on September 6 at Boyden-Hull, it will mark the 16th time since the birth of West Sioux High School back in 1959. Ironically, it will be the first meeting ever between Boyden-Hull and West Sioux, since the Comets did not play football back in the former Falcon days in the Siouxland Conference. A check of the records indicate that the Falcons have 128 games over the years, with a winning record of 70-56-2 to show for their efforts. Bob Held was the first West Sioux head coach, and he survived the first couple of years when the talent was thin, and then captured three consecutive Siouxland Conference titles in 1962, 63, and 1964 The '62 and '64 teams were unbeaten, and all three teams were unbeaten in conference play. West Sioux withdrew from the Siouxland League and joined in the new Sioux Empire Conference in 1965, but that loop lasted only two seasons and the Falcons were thrown into an independent status in 1967. That was unfortunate, because '67 was one of West Sioux's strongest teams in history; with Coach Mac Rayfield in his second season, the Falcons surged to a 7-0-1 record, with only a tie with Le Mars hotting the record. Once again the Falcons were charter members in a new Conference, the Tri-State, in 1968, but once again it was short-lived, and in 1972 and 1973 West Sioux again played the rough role of an independent. Held compiled a 23-ISrecord in his five years at West Sioux; his successor was Duane "Peterson, who was 11-5. in two seasons; Mac Rayfield coached the Falcons four seasons, coming up with a fine 23-10-2 mark. Charles Pfaffle was the next Falcon boss, with a 7-11 mark in two seasons, and Fritz Murrell was the most recent West Sioux mentor, compiling a 6-12chart over by Bud Kemper the past two seasons. Following is a rundown on Falcon wins and losses in their first 15 seasons. W L 1 T 0 WEST SIOUX V.S.
