Cohesive Team Efforts Spark Spirited JV Tigers to Unprecented 8-0 Record Prior to the JV football banquet, the six coaches tried to vote for a Most Valuable Player but could not single out any particular player. The proverb, "Behind an able man, there are always other able men," best described the cohesive team effort of the jayvees. This, coupled with the close interralationship between the coaching staff and the Tiger Cubs, sparked prepared and determined junior gridders to an undefeated eight-game season, unprecedented in the OIA, and the city title. Coaches feared that triumphs over Aiea, 33-0 and Kamehameha, 23-6, in preseason might have groomed the Cubs took quickly. But it seemed to be an emerging sign of pride-pride spelled with confidence. McKinley held their opposition to a mere 27 points while scoring 232 points in regular season play. The JV Tigers blanked four adversaries, tallying an average of 28 points against Pearl City, Farrington, Kalani and Kaimuki. A second-half appearance by a recuperating Head Coach Mike Marques motivated the jayvees to hold Kalaheo scoreless for the remainder of the game dedicated to Coach Marques and reap 28 points. McKinley pounced on arch rival Roosevelt, unbeaten by the Cubs for four years, to keep their record intact. A screen pass TD and conversion were the only Kaiser scores as the Tiger Cubs snared the Cougars to clinch a tie for the city championship. The final two opponents were victims of a JV Tiger blitzkreig. Maintaining a perfect 8-0 record and the OIA City District title enabled McKinley to playoff Windward district champ Kahuku for the eastern division crown, a rematch of last year's championship battle. Not known for their passing game, the Red Raiders scored on a 50-yard bomb and coveted for a 7-0 lead at the half. Crucial mental errors never committed before in season and the loss of tailback Ross Oshiro troubled the Cubs. McKinley plunged deep into Kahuku territory but failed to score. With seven seconds on the clock, Kahuku found the end zone again to put a 15-0 game out of reach for the JV Tigers. "We did not lose to a better team," said Coach Marques. "I still believe we are the best JV Football Team in the state." "I love my team very much," Marques added, and next year's varsity will truly profit from the "fantastic attitude, ability and modesty" of the jayvees.

Inconsistent Play Reaps Even Varsity Grid Season A 12-7 loss to Waipahu followed a week later by a 21 rout over Aiea was a preseason indication of an inconsistent 1975 varsity football season. Faced with a tough eight-game schedule and young first-year coaches, the Tigers ground out an even 4-4 record. McKinley came up two points short in the season opener against the Seariders, who proved to be of championship caliber in the OIA. The powerful Waianae offense tallied first with a two-point safety, then a 40-yard run and PAT for a 9-0 lead. A fumble recovery turned TD and successful PAT kept hopes high for a triumph, but time ran out on the Tigers. McKinley then bounced back and scored in every quarter to wallop the small Menehune team from Moanalua. In their Aloha Stadium debut, the Mick defense rose to the occasion to upset the physical Kahuku Red Raiders. The Tigers were almost overturned by surprisingly tough Kaimuki as the Bulldogs staged a comeback with four minutes in the game. However, they failed to strike the powerful McKinley defense, which stopped the Bulldogs short of the two-point conversion attempt. A Kaiser homecoming, plus numerous Tiger errors, sparked the Cougar offense to a fourth quarter comeback dealing a fatal blow to McKinley. The loss fixed the Micks in a tie for second with Roosevelt, a formidable foe for Homecoming the following week. A fervid Tiger team determined to maintain high standings in the Honolulu District, battled with the Rough Riders in a tight contest, the Tigers' last shot at the city title. The Micks held on to a 7-6 lead at the half, but tumbled to a favored Roosevelt squad. Another homecoming stand, this time by Farrington, coupled with the Governor running and passing attack, rambled over the McKinley goal line twice for a shutout victory. McKinley ended their up-and-down season with an anticlimatic victory of winless Kalani. The Falcons proved to be a tougher opponent than expected as a halftime tie initiated a brilliant goal line stand and sealed the win for the Micks.

Publications Staffs Accept Challenge of Journalism From reading the logo, "THE DAILY PINION," one may have wondered about the word "Daily." But daily it was, as a staff comprised of four editors, a bunch of industrious students and a devoted adviser worked in room 152 attempting to inform the students of McKinley. Accepting the challenge of journalism, students gave up their tutorial time, activity period and even lunch periods to meet daily deadlines. In an extra effort to produce an informative yet enjoyable paper, special layouts ranged from coverage of various sports, course descriptions and the Bicentennial. But the make-up of the paper was only half of the story. Daily at about 1 p.m., the layouts went to Mr. Charles Nakamura, and his graphics arts students undertook the job of printing the paper. It was then ready for the following morning. A meeting of minds, interchanging of ideas and plain creativity resulted in the production of the BLACK AND GOLD. In early September, the inexperienced staff set out to learn the trade, and with the leadership of one eager editor and adviser, the staff began work in late October. Drawing layouts, hunting for pictures and writing copy became routine for those in publications. Working earnestly to meet deadlines, some members made it a full week's job as they came in on Saturdays and Sundays. Top yearbook and newspapers staffers were elected to QUILL AND SCROLL, the International Honor Society for High School Journalists. These students carried the responsibility of seeing that the Pinion and Black and Gold maintained high journalistic standards.
