Ladies and gentlemen, after playing what first-year head football coach Bill Atsalis described as their best game of the season in a 28-0 loss against undefeated McClain, the 2-6 Hillsboro Indians would conclude their season the following Friday with against Franklin Heights.

    Ladies and gentlemen, homecoming night in 1959 was a memorable one for the Hillsboro varsity football team as the Indians took down Pleasant View, 20-6. Roger Mullenix, who had been alternating as a quarterback and running back, had an outstanding night for the Tribe as he ran for touchdowns of 54, 8 and 28 yards as Hillsboro improved to 2-4 under first-year head coach Bill Atsalis.

    Hillsboro opened the season Sept. 18, 1959 with a home game against “newcomer” to the schedule Paint Valley, followed by eight more games: at Logan, at Washington C.H., vs. Circleville, at New Boston, vs. Pleasant View, at Wilmington, vs. Greenfield McClain, then at Franklin Heights to round out the season on Nov. 13.

    Ladies and gentlemen, in 1959, Bill Atsalis was hired for his first head football coaching job at Hillsboro High School at the age of 26. Not too terribly long before that season, Atsalis was playing football himself. In 1950, he was a freshman quarterback at Wilmington College.

    Ladies and gentlemen, as we discussed last time, first-year Hillsboro High School head football coach Bill Atsalis didn’t have much of a Tribe when he opened summer camp in August of 1959 as just 17 players came out for the team.

    Ladies and gentlemen, don’t look now, but football season is upon us. As the 2021 season kickoff approaches, let’s take another trip back to the “old days” and see what football was like in Hillsboro more than 60 years ago. We’re driving the ol’ Studebaker back to the year 1959.

    Ladies and gentlemen, just more than 100 years ago, the 1920 election became the first United States presidential election in which women were permitted to vote in every state. Greenfield native Wenona Marlin worked to help make the 19th Amendment a reality.

    Ladies and gentlemen, Harriet Amelia (Hack) Fenner was, and still is, the only woman elected as a commissioner of Highland County. Her tenure as county commissioner began via an appointment by the Highland County Democratic Party Central Committee in August 1971.
