For the first time in years there was enough money to award letters--their sole consolation for losing 10 games. Ten Hut Never Wte by Carlton Stowers ASHERTON, TEX. I n most rural Texas towns, high school football games are the chief source of fall entertainment. Barring illness, washed-out roads or a sow in labor, the townspeople can be counted on to join the 123 Asherton High students in cheering their Trojans. But Asherton sits in the cheerless waste of South Texas, just off Interstate 84, claiming 1645 people, a dry-goods store, a paintless Spanish-speaking movie house which opens on Saturday - , . ~ , ,, . . Terry Harlin, who never played game, spent his summer at Texas coach school. nights, a feed seed, and a half-dozen gas station-liquor stores vying for the ; trade which passes by heading south for ' Laredo or north to San Antonio. And the Asherton High football team enters the 1972 season with a losing streak which has now stretched to 40 : consecutive games. This ignominious string ranks as the longest in the colorful history of the 1000-school Texas league. Winning counts Texans still boast of the Hull-Daisetta teams of the '30s which ran their winning streak to 43. For the '50s powerful Abilene teams established a national record of 49 straight. And tiny Pflugerville came along in the '60s to string together 55 consecutive wins. For Texas, the load of being the losingest of losers is a weighty burden to bear. Although he practices his trade in a section of the U.S. which often reveres high school football coaches over other gifted craftsmen and pays them better to prove it, Terry Harlin, the 24-year-old head coach of the Trojans, receives only $600 of his annual $7200 teaching salary PARADE · SEPTEMBER 3, 1972
