Football Team ’62

Coached by Ken Mast, the 1962 football team posted a 7-2 record and claimed the Mid-Ohio Conference championship.

Six Bluffton players earned all-conference honors—Mike Goings, Larry Stover, Willie Stemen, John Weber, Ralph Pitzer and Ken Schwarzentraub. Goings and Stover were also selected to the all-state team among Ohio small colleges.

Goings garnered additional honors as the leading scorer and third-leading rusher among small-college players nationally. In 1962, he set still-standing Bluffton records for most rushing yards in a game (314 yards on 21 carries against Alma), most touchdowns in a season (22) and most points in a season (132).
