Edition 5.0 – February 8, 2012


2013 Version / 5th Edition Overview First things first: simply put, this is anyone who ever has been a fan of Bettendorf Football. Certainly, it’s for all the coaches and players—past and present—who have shaped a dynasty with their commitment, discipline, and hard work. Finally, it’s for the players of tomorrow who simply need to do one thing: “Uphold the tradition.” This project—what I call “The Book”—initially began in July of 2007 and after pestering Coach Habenicht to write a Special Introduction—which he did on November 22, 2007—continued for the next year and a half. Finally, just before January 1st, 2009, the 1st Edition was finally completed. Two editions later, I asked Coach Scott to write his take on the 32-years he spent coaching BETT football and that is now included in the ebook. With the passing of Coach Habenicht last May, this book—to me—means even more because having his introduction was one major reason I wanted to archive the history of BETT football—before it became lost in the sands of time. On that note, I asked Mrs. Evelyn Habenicht to write what I called “A Shared Experience” narrative of her time in the program—because let’s face it, we all know that behind every great man is a better woman and if you played even just one down in a Bulldog uniform, you know she was a huge part of the Black and Gold experience. So, what exactly is this eBook? Well, in short, pretty much all of the information and data from the website has been transferred into book form to preserve all the research and work that’s been done. Basically, if an EMP explodes or the site goes offline (for whatever reason), history has been preserved ala paper as opposed to digitally. To be honest, over 10 years ago when I started the website, my life was much less… hectic. Now, with a full-time career as a high school principal, not to mention the fact that I have two sons (at present time, one nearly 1 and the other 3 years old, respectively), well… updating the website on a regular basis isn’t as easy as it sounds. Honestly, in the future, there’s a good chance that this eBook will be the only thing on the website—but for now, have no worries. Since the publication of that 1st Edition, more information has been updated. So, does that mean this 5th Edition is perfect? Of course not—but every attempt possible was made to make it as error-free as possible. Of course, as the saying goes, “One tends to lose the trees in the forest!” so it’ll be no surprise that there are probably still little errors here and there; point them out and they’ll be fixed for the next edition. More importantly—and although you’ll hear me say this again—please note that any omission—be it an award, honor, statistic, or historical fact—is purely unintentional and only results from a lack of knowledge. Again, simply point out the mistake or oversight and it will be fixed… this 5th Edition is over 300 pages and will expand every year because every new season and its subsequent completion will result in more additions—hopefully, more championships, All-State players, and so forth! Yes, essentially, it has no end. Furthermore, it’s not absolute and for sections such as “Notable Bulldogs”—well, there are countless and to the intent is add more people, to name just a few, such as Dave Hodam, Kevin Freking, and Sherm. So much work and so little time! Enjoy!

Edition 5.0 – Febuary 8, 2013


This eBook, The Complete History of Bettendorf Football, is dedicated to the 5,000 or student-athletes, trainers, managers, and coaches who have been part of the Bettendorf Bulldog football team since 1951. It is also for the fans, alumni, and patrons of Bettendorf High School who have supported the Bulldogs throughout their history. Finally, it is for anyone who has bled Black & Gold. Obviously, The Complete History of Bettendorf Football really isn’t “complete” until all the information is submitted and up-todate—and it will only be so for one season. Nevertheless, a more appropriate title couldn’t be envisioned and regardless of its title, please keep in mind that both the website and this eBook are “works-in-progress.” Most notably, there are missing team photos as well as pictures of those individuals who have earned All-State or team M.V.P honors and those who have played in the Iowa Shrine Bowl All-Star game. Additionally, there are also countless Bulldogs who extended their careers into college but who currently aren’t yet credited with that distinction. In all, although the website and consequently this eBook are both detailed, much vital information and/or photos are still missing. On that same note, please note that any error or misprint—about a particular season, team, or individual—is purely unintentional and only exists due to the lack of knowledge; when informed correctly, these inaccuracies are fixed as soon as possible. To be honest, one person—who is limited by time and location—cannot realistically archive “everything” and much credit and kudos needs to go out those individuals who have already submitted photos and information. As well, thanks to the many people (who are named in the CREDIT section at the end) who have assisted in what has become an enjoyable hobby. As always, if you—the reader—can assist with the gaps, please do so! The scope of these projects are only limited by time and space; currently the website has only used about 20% of its total capacity, so as detailed and expansive as it now—along with its ever-growing video archive—it can hold much more information. Hopefully, someday, the site will be 100% complete and thus so will this eBook. Nonetheless, on that same note, The Complete History of Bettendorf Football will obviously only be “complete” until a new season begins. As a result, at least once a year, this eBook will be updated with a newer version. Feel free to print this eBook or distribute it however you wish to as many people as you’d like; the bottom line is that it’s **FREE** and has been created so that a “hard copy” of the complete history of Bettendorf Football exits as someday the site may not. The main objective here—as it’s always been— is to preserve and archive the history of Bettendorf Football. It is my sincere hope that as many people who are able to can and will assist in contributing to the site (and consequently this eBook). As always: “Go Dawgs!”

Edition 5.0 – Febuary 8, 2013


Since the birth of WWW.BETTENDORFFOOTBALL.COM in December of 2002 and the subsequent development and expansion of the website, countless people have emailed me to not only thank me for creating such a detailed and informational archival center, but also to ask me the simple question of, “Why?... why did you do this?” The first answer is of course the most obvious: “Why not?” Why not create a center for all things that are Bettendorf Football? Why not create a gathering place where all of the historical, archival—and sometimes, mythological—information can be stored for access for anyone... anywhere... anytime? Certainly, the Internet is a wonderful thing and surely most will agree that Bettendorf High School has a unique, rich tradition when it comes to the sport of football. To me, not preserving that history would be... well, almost criminal! A second answer I give is: “Right now, I have the time—or at least had it when I initially created the site.” Sure, I have a career, a family, and other interests that take up the majority of my time, but in 2001 when I began doing the preliminary research for the website, I definitely had more time then as I do now. Fortunately—because I consider the site about 90% finished—most of the “hard” stuff has been accomplished. Sure, there are still missing team and individual photos as well as general team information, but most of the time-consuming stuff is already done. On the other hand—because over the years I have gotten better at web design and programming—in the Fall of 2006 I decided that because I wasn’t satisfied with the layout of the site, I upgraded it by creating a new version and spent the better part of two months working on it… although, for the record, I am very happy with the current version and the feedback I’ve received is that it’s easierto-navigate so it’s going to stay as is—at least for the immediate and near future! The third—and main, real reason—I created the website stemmed from that fact that when I was going through graduate school from 2000-01, in one of my courses the major assignment was “…to create a sample webpage with the purpose that would be informational and/or serve a community or school in a positive fashion.” The kicker was: you had to base your webpage on something based in the real world. Long-story short, I thought about my alma mater and although the Bettendorf Community School District’s website is excellent, the webpage for the football team wasn’t as extensive as I thought it would be. Now, I’ll admit that I’m a bit biased and consider Bettendorf to be the premier high school football program in Iowa, so I was a bit amazed that someone had yet to archive the history of the program! For starters, among its many accomplishments, Bettendorf has: the most 4A state football titles in Iowa; not one, but three Hall of Fame football coaches in Merrit Parsons, Merv Habenicht, and Randy Scott; four notable winning streaks of 36, 30, 25, and 24 games, respectively; is home to Tavian Banks who is arguably the best prep tailback to ever play the position in Iowa high school history. Ok, enough—the list goes on and on and my point is that since Bettendorf Football didn’t have an archival center, it should and that is the fundamental reason I decided to do something about it.

Edition 5.0 – Febuary 8, 2013


More notably, it would be an understatement to speak of my high school coaches—Merv Habenicht, John Lavelle, Randy Scott, Dave Hodam, Tom Freeman, Dave Altman, Ron Egger, Greg Amundson, Ted Thompson, and trainer Reggie Speak—that influenced both me and my teammates: all of these men provided direction and discipline and I know for a fact that others feel exactly as I do. Aside from my parents, these men were the first major positive role models in my life. Simply put, these coaches made a difference and for that, I am eternally grateful (even though I had to run Bulldog Reminders on more than one occasion). And what about all of the life stories that exist from both football practice and games? Certainly for many, the best-told yarns stem from being part of the Dawg Brotherhood: for instance, I will always remember Thursday night practices—prior to a game—how fun it always was watching then-Assistant Coach Randy Scott race the offensive linemen the length of the field. (For the record, he never lost and I’ve always wondered when he stopped—if ever—doing that.) Or what about the time Coach Lavelle brought a plastic baseball bat to practice to help the defensive linemen work on conquering fear (or, in other words, not blink when he hit you in the face with it). And good ol’ Coach Habenicht and his famous phrases such as “That’s like rocks in a can!” or “Whoever made that play sure did save our bacon!” will never be forgotten. Quite frankly, I’ve enjoyed doing the website because it has allowed me—as well as the people who have assisted me—to give something back to the program that gave me so much; as a Bulldog, I experienced joy, sorrow, success, failure, and a camaraderie unmatched at any level I have ever encountered except in my own family. Camaraderie, I believe, is the foundation of Bettendorf Football—if you don’t believe me, ask any player who has ever worn the Black and Gold. At the same time, I will add that the hardest thing about creating the site (and eBook) was the initial challenge of gathering information, photos, etc. However as I both hoped and wished for—as well as predicted—former players, coaches, parents, and fans came forward and helped me fill in the gaps. To say the least, connecting with these people from different eras has been probably the most rewarding thing about creating the website: despite generation and age differences, I have become good friends with people both older and younger than me because of our common love for Bettendorf Football. The fact that the site also promotes both the program and the student-athletes that currently play is a bonus... after all, kids that play football are special—they devote a lot of time, energy, and dedication to the sport—and the coaches, trainers, and managers that devote countless hours for little or no pay—well, they’re special too. After all, in today’s society, there are those who sit in the stands whom sincerely believe, “Kids win games and coaches lose them!” but real football connoisseurs know the truth: season-after-season the Bulldogs are one of the best teams in the state and it’s simply because of the collaborative effort between players, coaches, and the community. The bottom line is this: football isn’t an easy sport to play—and when you only have approximately 13% of the male students in each BHS class play football—well, again, they deserve the appropriate amount of attention and positive promotion that the site provides... after all, the success of the program is built upon the foundation of the players and coaches whom have devoted themselves to building and maintaining a dynasty.

Edition 5.0 – Febuary 8, 2013


I feel privileged to have worked with the coaches and players at Bettendorf High School for 40 years. Team unity, pride, and tradition are the foundation and strength of the Bettendorf Football Program. Our number one goal was always to outwork our opponents, to play from “snap to whistle,” and for the players to achieve their maximum potential. The program had to accelerate when we moved from small school league to 4A football. We implemented a two-platoon system, a full Junior Varsity schedule, and established two freshmen teams with each playing a full schedule. Offensive coordinator Tom Freeman and his son Tommy introduced the use of computers for scouting reports and record keeping. Coach John Lavelle and Trainer Reggie Speak worked hard at developing the idea of year-round conditioning. The players learned the advantages gained from spending time in the weight room. The Freking Crew was established and led by Coach Kevin Freking while passing camps were established by coaches Freeman and Lavelle. Coach Randy Scott developed many outstanding linemen who were able to advance to the next level. He eventually himself advanced to the Head Coach of the Bulldog’s position. Bettendorf football players have always made their school and community proud of them. Their record speaks for itself and we would be remiss not to mention a few outstanding assistant coaches such as: Tom Downs, David Hodam, Greg Meyer, Dennis Pelisek, Aaron Wiley, Kevin Freking, Gary Hirsch, Brian Barquist, Ron Egger, and Paul Castro. They helped build the program that made the Bettendorf team feared by their opponents. Among many of its greatest accomplishments, the Bettendorf football team has won 7 State Championship titles, have been nationally ranked, and many of the players have earned All-State honors. My wife Evelyn and I will always have a special place in our hearts for all of the players and trainers who represented Bulldog Football. Once a Bulldog, always a Bulldog!

Edition 5.0 – Febuary 8, 2013


My introduction to BETT football was during my senior year at UNI. I met Coach Merv Habenicht and Coach Tom Freeman at the UNI Football Clinic in the spring of 1976. They were there looking at trying to install the “Houston Veer Attack” into Bettendorf’s program. Specifically, they were there looking for an offensive line coach. Little did I know at the time that I would become that offensive line coach and would experience many memorable moment ahead. Shortly after the spring clinic I interviewed at Bettendorf High School for a teaching and coaching position. When interviewing with Merrit Parsons, Ray Oles, and Habenicht, it was very apparent that Bettendorf loves its football! Not long after my interview I was offered the job and the link to Bettendorf football was installed. Over the years, the philosophy of BETT football has changed very little. Championships are won with great defense, a solid kicking game, and an offense that can run the ball. I hope that philosophy will never change as it is the recipe for a run at a championship every season. Other vital links are: a junior varsity schedule; a two (2) platoon system; and two (2) freshmen football teams which gives young players a chance to develop their skills. Over the 32-years I was associated with Bettendorf football, I have always told people I was a small piece to a larger puzzle. It takes a lot of good coaches at every level, including varsity, sophomore, freshmen, and junior high. Success takes a huge commitment and dedication with time and effort from both coaches and players. Everyone has to be on the same page with the same goals to be able to put all the pieces of the puzzle into a large picture. The attitude of BETT football is to win the conference, qualify for the playoffs, and make a run for a state championship. An integral part of Bettendorf’s success has been more than just what is done between the first day of practice and the last game. What happens in the off-season in relation to strength and conditioning is so vital to the development of a player’s ability, attitude, and success on and off the field. Football teaches athletes about hard work, dedication, positive attitudes, perseverance, and many other life-long lessons to be success in life. In closing, I need to mention a deep gratitude to Merv Habenicht and Tom Freeman who played very large parts in my development as a coach and person throughout the years. I also want to mention Kevin Freking for being the “workhorse” in Bettendorf Football over many years. Without his commitment, so much of Bettendorf’s success may not have happened.

Edition 5.0 – Febuary 8, 2013


I met my husband, Merv Habenicht, in High School in Fort Dodge. The words under his senior picture in the yearbook were, “Football is my middle name.” How prophetic! He ultimately played football in high school, Junior College, the Army—every time I met Hayden Fry, he recalled that his Marine team beat Merv’s Army team when they were both in the service—and then in college on scholarship. His first coaching job was in 1960 at Bettendorf. Merritt Parsons was the head coach and Merv always gave him full credit for his training. He quoted him often and abided by his coaching philosophy with such things as: "There are 3 things that can happen when you pass the ball and 2 of them are bad." Or, "You can't score if you don't have the ball." Merv put an emphasis on defense like no one ever had; he kept stats on tackles and had the newspaper print them along with the completed passes. One of our defensive coaches, Tom Downs, came up with the plan that if a defensive player scored a touchdown by interception or fumble recovery, he got a steak dinner that week at his house. Such that, Bettendorf teams became known for their fierce defense! We would go for quarter after quarter without being scored upon! The players were intensely trying to not just win the game, but to not let them score! It was a pride thing even after Merv cleared the bench in the 2nd half: those second- and third-teamers didn’t want to be scored upon either! When we first played in the finals in the UNI-Dome, after the kids had showered and dressed, Coach John Lavelle took the juniors back into the UNI-Dome into the nearly dark, cavernous field and quietly spoke to them. None of us ever heard what was said. I asked Coach Lavelle to share it with us now, in this intro. Here is what he said: "What I wanted to do was to put it in their mind what we had just experienced and make them believe that they too could experience it the following year if they were going to make the commitment to return. Some of the juniors had played on the field, some of them had not. We walked the field and quietly talked about what playing in the Dome would mean to them as seniors. I guess it was learning how to walk the talk.” Coach Tom Freeman's son, Tommy, later became a computer expert, but before that, he mathematically—by pencil and paper—kept stats on "tendencies.” For instance: “On 3rd and short, Clinton 7 out of 10 times runs a (certain) play.” So we called the defense that would stop them. Those kind of things came in handy when for a from 1981-83 we ended up with a free date; while the other conference schools just rested that week, Merv called all over the state looking for a game. We ended up driving up to Madison (WI) two of those three years to play them. They had been state champs in 1980 so this wasn’t some patsy team and Merv always said, “You play to the level of your competition.” We ended going 3-0 against them.

Edition 5.0 – Febuary 8, 2013


Other reasons why were were so successful—and we always hoped that opposing coaches wouldn’t catch on—were Merv’s “special weapons” like 2-platooning, playing a full JV schedule, and maing fanatic fans out of all the students, parents, little brothes, sisters, bus drivers, and custodians. It’s a little known fact that in 40 years at BHS, Merv never wrote a requisition. He didn’t have to because those guys loved him! Merv loved the honors accorded him as much as any man would, but he didn't let it run his life. During the 1991 & '92 seasons, when we were ranked in the top 25 nationally by USA Today, a reporter would call our house every Sunday morning for an interview with the coach. However, all he ever got was little ole me!.. and I never had the right answers to his questions. He'd ask me who had the most tackles and how many. I had no idea but the next week I'd be ready with the info—only he didn't want it then. I don't know if I was dealing with the same reporter every week or not. I begged Merv to stay home and answer the calls, but he would just refuse and say it was the only time he got all season to drink coffee with his friends and relax. One time during the 1987, ’88, and ’89 seasons I felt especially stupid when I tried to tell a reporter that we were in our third consecutive undefeated season and had won 36 games in a row which was some type of record! The next week he had checked and Waterloo East had that record—55 games in a row from 1955-66. Stupid me, I should have pointed out that their record was in the days before the playoffs and only meant that they had won every conference game for five straight seasons. Bettendorf, on the other hand, had beaten the best teams in the entire state for 3 consecutive years! Merv knew, but he wasn't home. Arghhhhhhh! Merv coached at different levels for 40 years. His varsity winning record of 229-70-1 (76%) is well known. But what I’m most proud of is the influence he had on so many young men’s lives. I have repeatedly been told by former players when speaking of Merv, “He was more of a dad to me than my own father. Or, “If it wasn’t for him, I never would have finished high school.” I know in my heart that Merv never really knew how much he influenced these young men, or at least he didn’t give it much thought. What he did just came naturally to him. He loved kids and seemed to always have one with him in his truck, running errands, taking them through the fast food places or bringing them home for me to feed to ensure they had a hot meal. If a kid showed up with raggedy or no football shoes, we took him to get fitted with brand new ones, and paid for it out of our pocket—no big deal! He saw a need and he filled it. Period. Did this help the team? Probably, but it didn’t matter. It needed doing. I was always asking him how many kids he was bringing home for supper so that I'd prepare enough food. His answer was always the same: "It depends on how many hang around the locker room after practice. I'll bring them home then." After the 50-point mercy rule was adopted in 1992, we were playing Clinton at their place and the score was 36-0 at the half. Merv let Tavian play one more series, then put in the JV to play the rest of the game. After the game, the Clinton athletic director came over to thank Merv for not making them the first team in the state to lose by the mercy rule. Personally, I can't remember Merv ever running up the score. Tavian seldom, if ever, got to play past the first series of the second half; that was also to keep him from getting injured. With five kids of our own, I was used to cooking lots of food and it was a challenge to fill the bellies of these huge athletes!... but I loved every minute of the up close, getting to know them by their faces (and not their jersey numbers). Speaking of jersey numbers, after the 1981 championship, I mentioned to Merv that our quarterback' jersey had been mended so many times that there wasn't much left of it… © 2002-13 www.bettendorffootball.com

could I please just give it to him? Merv talked to Wendell Hill, Bettendorf’s AD at the time and he let the kids buy their jerseys for $5 (instead of handing them down to the sophomore team). A lot of "lost" jerseys were mysteriously found and paid for, so the school came out ahead and the players got mementos of being the very first state champions of BHS! There was one very special kid who had many reasons to be angry with the world. He became very special to us both. The first time Merv brought him home I asked him if he'd like a can of pop or something to eat. He just glared at me…no answer. Merv ended up with his "henchman," riding around town everywhere with him: to Bishops for supper with us, running errands to the bank, cleaners or grocery store. The happy ending to this story was when he brought his prom date to the house to meet us, pose for pictures, and then gave me a big hug. He is still a dear friend to me. One day Merv came home and told me a player had to be excused from practice to drive to Fort Dodge to bury his beloved cat on his grandpa’s farm. I suggested maybe one of our daughter's newborn kittens would lessen the loss for the player. Merv agreed. So I showed up at practice, which happened to be before the 1st Round of the playoffs that season, with the kitten. During a break, Merv sent the kid up to my car. He held the kitten a little while, fighting the tears in his eyes, then handed it back to me, said thanks, but it was just too soon. Then he hugged me. I think that was the first hug I’d gotten from a sweaty, giant player in full pads, on my tippy toes. I was hooked! This same player, at the end of the season, had a tear in the neck of his jersey. Grumpy ole Merv showed it to him, said it wasn't any good anymore and he might as well keep it. Remember 1981? Merv knew how much players liked getting to keep their jerseys! Tenacity! That describes Merv in one word. He never gave up. The word “no” was a challenge to him. I know in my heart that he “saved” some young men who were headed down the wrong path. They not only gained a father, sometimes a mother figure, but lots of brothers who learned to work together for a common goal. For some of them, football was the first taste of success in their young lives. They learned to be proud of themselves. They had a second "instant" family! I don't remember how my role of assistant/partner to Merv's coaching started. He loved having me come to practice. That began for two main reasons on my part: one, we never lost at practice, so I could relax and enjoy it (I later discovered I had high blood pressure) and I loved seeing him in action. Often he wouldn't acknowledge my presence until I'd start to leave and suddenly I'd hear my name called and "Where you going?" He wanted me to be a part of it all and I loved it. Two: sometimes my duties included a run across the river to pick up special shoulder pads or a larger helmet for a player, or like one time, I hauled a player over to his house in full gear to get a parental signature so the insurance covered him in practice. I also once took a kid to the doctor who had an ulcer. One time I saw our running back staggering around after a hit in practice and I finally honked the horn of my car to get Merv's attention; the player had a concussion and kept repeating himself all the way over to Dr. Edward’s office where his dad met us. I also took quite a few players to Palmer College for their less expensive physical when they missed the school’s athletic-wide one. We never had a player miss a game because of bad grades. Merv kept a close eye on all of his players' progress in school. If someone was in trouble, they either got help at school or at our kitchen table until the grades came up. Early in his career, Merv had a kid in 10th grade History class who could barely read; he'd had remedial help at U of I to no avail, but Merv taught him to read in History class. He went on to become a teacher/coach. Later, the school provided the help these kids needed. Merv and his partner-teacher, Margo Effland, team-taught special ed kids.

After graduation, if a player wanted to continue playing in college and let him know, Merv would help get them a football scholarship. One didn't even have to go to BHS to get help. He helped kids from other Quad City schools. He'd make a phone call to a coach he knew at the college of choice and give a recommendation. He knew many college coaches because he went to their clinics and as his fame grew, he spoke at their clinics. Merv always assumed that we were partners in this coaching gig and that I would be welcome any place he was welcome. One day, the father of a player, called and invited Merv to go to Super Bowl XVI in Detroit with him and some other doctor friends in a private plane. I cringed when I heard Merv ask, "Can I bring my wife?" It was like a 6 or 8 passenger plane. (No, there wasn't room) Then there was the time he was being interviewed on the field after a state championship win. When he saw the TV camera, he put his arm around me and pulled me close as he answered the questions. We laughed when we saw it on TV that night. They had zoomed in on him and cropped me out of the picture. Nice try, honey. I did get into the interview with the Fort Dodge Sports editor during halftime during one Iowa Hawkeye game. Merv told him that Pat Halligan (an all-state half back at FDHS) was his brother-inlaw. I admitted that I had no identity of my own: I grew up being Pat Halligan's sister, then Merv Habenicht's wife, but the best was when the sweet young thing at the hardware store asked me if I was Kurt Habenicht's mother. I was proud to plead guilty to all of the above. Later Merv got a letter through the High School, from the head of the Iowa High School Athletic Association, Bernie Sagau, addressed to "Evelyn Habenicht's husband." He had read the article in the Fort Dodge Messenger! What was it like being a Bulldog? We came here in 1960, straight out of college when I was 26 years old. When Merv advanced to assistant varsity, we went to post-game parties that included the mayor, the police chief, the city attorney, and other powerful political people and their spouses. I have no idea if other schools had fans as loyal as we did, but I doubt it, except maybe Assumption. As a coach’s wife, I tried to follow the examples of Dorothy Parsons and Rose Oles, my predecessors. Gradually as I gained confidence, I found my own way of contributing. When Merv got the head job and we began to win and win and win, it was an indescribable high. We were all guilty of the sin of Pride—and how we loved it! It got so that it wasn't enough to win the conference and make the playoffs… we were supposed to win the state championship every year! And we did!... five times! Our daughter Karen and two other moms of the players started the "Football Mom's Spirit Club.” They decorated their yards and fences, painted the field, made wooden footballs with the player's number on them on a stake for each player's yard. They grew from 3 to 70 members in the first season and are still active today. Merv used to say: "We are all a part of the Bulldog victories! Everyone, from the janitors, bus drivers, faculty, administrators, parents, and fans contribute to our success." He truly believed that. Merv got to coach his two sons: Bobby (free safety) and Kurt (linebacker), then a grandson, Abraham Blair (linebacker) during his tenure. He would have liked to stay a few more years and coached another grandson, Anthony Losasso (linebacker), in their 2007 state championship, 13-0 season. Would they have had that record? Sure! Randy would have helped make it happen! Oh, and Kurt—who was voted “Most Valuable Player”" by his team mates in both football and wrestling—has coached his son, Bobby, in football from kindergarten through 8th grade, about 106 games, in Boise, Idaho. It's the gene pool, you know. Kurt would call and consult his dad about the offense or defense of an upcoming opponent, seeking Merv's sage advice. It made my heart sing to hear them conferring, father and son.

This observation about the entire BETT football experience as well as Merv and I was given to me by the mother of the author of this book and these observations really moved me because they are so true: “Mrs. Habenicht perfectly described what ‘it’ was all about as she described the life of Coach H in which she played an equally important role. ‘It’ meaning the magic that can only be felt from participating, in our own way, in the world of BHS football. Of course… the image seared in my mind for me was, is, and always will be the first time I saw you all coming down the hill to the field. Holding hands. En masse. United. I have never seen or felt that kind of unity/power you all generated together before—and it was amazing. It permeated the entire stadium setting the scene for what was to unfold—win or lose. I can still see it in Technicolor in my mind and feel it in my heart... transposed back in that reality.... just like that. And the two of them were extraordinary together.” Merv and I would have celebrated 59 years of marriage in December of 2012. During the years of his retirement, before he got ill, he brought me a dozen roses every week. He never tired of holding my hand, whether in church, walking in the mall, or riding in the car. I always knew he loved me because he told me every day several times a day. We were partners in every way. I know that because he always told me that I was the reason he became a success. I had urged him to leave the security of working at the packing plant to finish college and fulfill his dream of being a coach… and what a coach! Not just of football, but a coach for living for all those young men. I miss him every minute of every day.

Edition 5.0 – Febuary 8, 2013


Head Coaches The late Wayne Grady was the first coach in Bettendorf history who helped both establish the program and set the foundation for future generations. In 1953—only Bettendorf's third season—he guided the Bulldogs to a 4-4-1 record and 3rd place finish in the Illowa Conference. In 1953 Grady also led the Bulldogs into the 23rd Street Stadium where home games would be played for the next 27 seasons until the completion of TouVelle Stadium in 1980. Grady's overall career record was 10-23-2 and although he has the unfortunate distinction of being the only coach in BHS history to go winless in a season as the 1952 squad had an 0-10 record, he nevertheless was the pioneer of the Bettendorf Football program.

As head coach of the Bulldogs, success occurred both quickly and often for the late Merrit Parsons. In the course of his 12-season tenure, Parsons not only compiled an overall record of 66-34-5, but also won 5 conference championships as well as the U.P.I.'s 1960 Mythical State Championship. In 1957 he was named the Quad Cities "Coach of the Year" and from 1958-60, his Bulldogs compiled an impressive record of 25-0-1 which also marked the first of three historical Bulldog winning streaks. Prior to the implementation of Iowa football playoffs, teams were ranked at the end of the season and both the 1958 and 1959 squads were ranked #10 and #12, respectively, by the Iowa Daily Press Association. In 1966, his final season before becoming the Assistant Superintendent of Bettendorf Schools, the Bulldogs went 8-0 and won the Little 6 Conference. The 1968 squad was also rated #4 by the Des Moines Register at the end of season and two year later in 1968, Parsons was inducted into the Iowa Football Coaches Hall of Fame. Mr. Parsons passed away in 1994.

1967-70

Prior to leading the Bulldogs, the late Ray Oles not only started the North Scott football program in 1958, but is still the winningest coach in school history. In his first season, Oles guided the Bulldogs to a 7-2 record and #13 final ranking by the Des

Moines Register while his 1968 squad won the Little 6 title with a 5-0 record while finishing the season with another 7-2 record. In 1969, Oles was named the M.V.C. "Coach of the Year" after guiding Bettendorf to second place in the conference via a 7-2-1 finish along with a final #7 ranking in the Des Moines Register. During his tenure, the Bulldogs won their historical 100th game as Oles compiled a 24-12-1 record in four seasons before becoming the Director of Curriculum and Instruction for Bettendorf Schools. Ray Oles passed away suddenly in 1982.

Simply put, the late Merv Habenicht, a Fort Dodge native, led the Bulldogs for 29 seasons and not only made history, but also a dynasty. A former prep player at Fort Dodge High School, Habenicht played football at the Iowa Teacher's College (now Northern Iowa) before coming to Bettendorf in 1960. After serving as both the head sophomore coach and as an assistant varsity coach for five years, Habenicht was named as Bettendorf’s new head coach in 1971 and for the next nine years, Habenicht, his staff, and his players toiled to make Bettendorf into a powerhouse—and their efforts were highlighted as the Bulldogs not only posted seven winning seasons, but also won two conference championships in 1974 and 1978. Then, in 1980, Bettendorf began its ascent as a 4A contender by not only going 9-0 during the regular season and qualifying for the Class 4A playoffs for the first time in school history, but advanced to the 4A state championship game after hard-fought victories over Dubuque Hempstead and Cedar Rapids Washington. Although the Bulldogs lost the state championship game to the Newton Cardinals, 28-14, it would be the last time Habenicht would lose a title contest as the foundation for future Bulldog teams had had been set. During his tenure, Habenicht compiled a record of 229-70-1 while winning 5 state championships and 10 conference titles. Additionally, his 15 playoffs squads compiled a record of 30-10 and three of them were nationally ranked: while the 1988 and 1992 squads were ranked #18 and #21, respectively, by the L.A. Times, the 1989 crew earned a “Team to Watch” status by U.S.A. Today. Three of his teams made school history by going undefeated: 1987’s squad went 12-0 while both the 1988 and 1992 teams went 13-0. Habenicht also coached 70 All-State players as well as Parade All-American running back Tavian Banks. Additionally during his time as the Bulldog’s head coach, Habenicht was involved in two of the longest winning streaks in Bettendorf’s history: the 36-game streak from 1987-89 and a 30-game run from 1991-93. Among the numerous honors and awards he has earned, Habenicht was inducted into the Iowa High School Football Coaches Hall of Fame in 1988 and was the runner-up for the Quad City Football "Coach of the Century" in 2000. He also was the M.A.C. "Coach of the Year" in 1989 and 1998 as well as the Des Moines Register "Coach of the Year" in 1988. Habenicht also coached in the 1981 Iowa Shrine Bowl All-Star game for the South Squad as an assistant and was also the head coach in 1999. After his “retirement” he has enjoyed other coaching stints for teams such as Davenport Assumption, United Township, and most recently for the Quad City Steamwheelers of the Arena Football League (af2) in 2007. Mr. Habenicht passed away in May of 2012 after a lengthy battle with pulmonary fibrosis. © 2002-13 www.bettendorffootball.com

Born and raised in Avoca (IA), Randy Scott joined the Bettendorf program in 1976 after starring at center for the Northern Iowa Panthers and served as an assistant coach under Merv Habenicht for 24 seasons before assuming head coaching duties in 2000. In his inaugural season as head coach, Scott led the Bulldogs to the 4A state title game where they were runners-up and again in 2002 before claiming the title in 2004 and 2007; both the 2004 and 2007 squads also finished the season with records of 13-0 (only the fourth and fifth teams in school history to go undefeated since the inception of the Iowa football playoffs in 1972) and while the 2004 team earned national rankings of #25 by Prep Nation 101 and #32 by Student Sports, the 2007 team was ranked #30 by MaxPreps while also being designated as the "Best Team in Iowa" by Sports Illustrated. In just 8 short seasons under Scott's tutelage, 44 players earned All-State honors while his teams compiled a record of 85-12—an incredible 87.6% winning percentage—which makes him the 2nd winningest coach in Bettendorf history. Coach Scott also won 4 conference titles while amassing a record of 66-6 in conference play and under his direction, the Bulldogs also qualified for the 4A playoffs 8 consecutive times while collecting 19 wins in 25 games. Coach Scott was honored with several "Coach of the Year" honors, most notably by the M.A.C. (2004, '07) and Iowa Football Coaches Association ('04) while also being named the "Southeast District Coach of the Year" in 2000 and 2004. Although Scott, who earned the honor of being named "Teacher of the Year" in 1996, may be retired from coaching, he still presents at clinics today.

Aaron Wiley, a Cedar Falls native who as a prep played defensive back for the Tigers, became just the sixth head football coach in Bettendorf history in January of 2008 after spending 12 seasons as an assistant Bulldog coach. Aaron become a member of the Bulldog coaching staff in 1996 before being named as the varsity Defensive Coordinator by then-head coach Merv Habenicht in 1997. Wiley’s inaugural season witnessed the Bulldogs not only win the M.A.C. conference by going 9-0 during the regular season, but also advance to the Quarterfinals of the Class 4A playoffs after Substate and 1st Round victories. In the Quarterfinals, the Bulldogs lost to Cedar Rapids Washington to finish the season with an overall record of 11-1 while a total of six Bettendorf players earned All-State honors. During his sophomore season helming the program, Wiley—who earned “Assistant Coach of the Year” honors by the Iowa Football Coaches Association—guided Bettendorf to an 8-1 regular season finish; the Bulldog’s lone conference loss was to Clinton in Week #4 and prior to the defeat, Bettendorf had

won 21-consecutive M.A.C. games (and 59 of the past 63 since 2003). In the Substate Round, the Bulldogs lost to Cedar Rapids Jefferson to finish the season with an 8-2 mark. In 2010, both Wiley and the Bulldogs were on a mission to settle any doubt that the program was on the decline after their early exit from the 2009 playoffs. For starters, the Bulldogs went 9-0—only the 15th undefeated squad to do so during the regular season since 1951—and won their 22nd conference championship. Bettendorf also shut out their 1st and 2nd round opponents in the newly-revised playoffs and in the Quarterfinals avenged their loss to Kennedy with a 14-7 victory that advanced them to Semifinals for the first time since 2007. Although the Bulldogs lost to longtime playoff rival Iowa City High, 21-7, they finished 12-1 which equaled the school’s second-highest total wins in a season. Wiley was also named the 2010 M.A.C. “Coach of the Year.” The 2011 campaign—which saw the Bulldogs race out to a 2-0 start after combined wins of 98-6 against Davenport West and North—was Wiley’s best yet despite a 14-5 setback in Week 3 against Davenport Assumption. However, rather than folding their tent and going home because a perfect season could no longer be achieved, the Bulldogs instead rattled off 10-straight wins by outscoring their opponents 38686 to not only win their 23rd conference title, but also reach the 4A championship game for the 11th time in school history. Even the Bulldogs dropped a heart-breaker, 17-14, to West Des Moines Valley, Wiley was named the Class 4A “Coach of the Year” by the Iowa Football Coaches Association as well as the Quad City Times “All-Metro Coach of the Year.” The 2012 squad raced out to a 3-0 start as they outscored their opponents 111-42. However, the Bulldogs then suffered back-to-back losses to both Pleasant Valley and Muscatine—two teams that have only a total of 10 all-time combined victories against Bettendorf—before winning three more games in four outings (a 7-6 loss to Assumption was the only setback). In the 1st Round Playoff game against North Scott—a team they defeated 36-28 to open up the ‘12 campaign—Bettendorf jumped out to a 26-7 halftime lead before stumbling and eventually losing 35-26. Wiley’s overall record of helming Bettendorf’s program is 49-10.

Athletic Trainers The early days of football in regards to athletic care and prevention were primitive compared to today’s standards and the adage, “Just rub some dirt on it!” was—and to a certain degree still is—commonplace in the football culture as players are expected to play through pain. Not much is known about Ray Townsley except for the historical records on file indicate that he served as Bettendorf’s first uncertified trainer in 1953 and the term “uncertified” is used only because in those days, there was no such thing as a Certified Athletic Trainer.

Darrell Moore served as an assistant football coach under Merrit Parsons from 1958-60 and for the available archival records, pulled double duty his last two seasons as the Bulldog’s athletic trainer. Like Ray Townsley, it is doubtful that Mr. Moore was a Certified Athletic Trainer simply because accreditation didn’t exist in those days; regardless, his care and prevention helped the Bulldogs win three straight conference titles and go unbeaten for 26-straight games from 1958-60.

Dan “Doc” Meador became the first full-time athletic trainer in Bettendorf history in 1961 and served in that capacity for nine seasons before being replaced by Bettendorf’s first certified trainer, Reggie Speak. At the time, Mr. Meador was considered the first official athletic trainer in the State of Iowa and Bettendorf High School was unique in the fact that they were virtually the only high school in the state with a full-time trainer on staff. Mr. Meador also taught Social Studies for over thirty years at Bettendorf High School and was infamous for his paddle that bore the names of voluntary signees.

Reginald “Reggie” Speak may have been raised in Weeping Water, Nebraska, but after spending 22 years as the Athletic Trainer for the Bulldogs, he still calls Bettendorf home. A 1955 graduate of Peru State College (Nebraska), Mr. Speak began his career at Webster City High School under legendary Lynx coach Harley Rollinger in 1962. However, after spending eight seasons with the Lynx, Mr. Speak then became a Bulldog where he served under another legendary coach, Merv Habenicht, from 1970-92, and his career as a trainer, healer, and person would be historic. Mr. Speak has earned countless honors and was among the first Certified High School Athletic Trainers in both the state of Iowa and nation. In 1974, Mr. Speak was a presenter at the National Athletic Trainer Association Workshop and Symposium while being named the Drake Relays Trainer of the Year in 1981. Mr. Speak also earned a commendation from the NATA for service to the Continuing Education Committee. The trainer for the first four Bettendorf state championship squads (1981, ’87, ’88, ’91), Mr. Speak also earned a commendation from both the Iowa Athletic Directors (1992) and the Iowa Football Coaches Association. As well, he also received a Sports Medicine Award from the IHSAA—the first trainer to receive such an award—while founding and directing Student Trainer Clinics for over 20 years. “Coach Speak”—as many players called him—cited that while he has had many countless thrills during his 22 years at Bettendorf, some of the most memorable include: beating Davenport Central featuring tailback Roger Craig [who later became an NFL All-Pro] and receiving a commendation by the IFCA presented by former Iowa Hawkeye coach Hayden Fry. Among the four state titles he helped Bettendorf win as an athletic trainer, Mr. Speak feels that his biggest thrill was “…being the Bulldog Athletic Trainer for 22 years.” For several years until the 2004 season, Mr. Speak used to provide pre-and-post game prayers for the Bulldogs and after a five-year layoff, resumed this responsibility in 2008. Always remembered as “The One Who Could Heal,” Mr. Speak’s oath to help injured players earned him both the respect and gratitude of countless Bulldogs whose dreams and goals were accomplished on account of his work. On July 15, 2005, Mr. Speak was inducted into the Athletic Trainers "Hall of Honor" in Cedar Falls, Iowa.

Armstrong Stadium — 1953-79 Although Bettendorf’s football program began in 1951, it wasn’t until 1953 that the Bulldog’s played their first home game at the then-new Armstrong Stadium located on 23rd Street where the High School also was positioned. Prior to the existence of Armstrong Stadium—also known as the “23rd Street Stadium”—all “home” football games were played at Brady Stadium in Davenport. The 23rd Street Stadium has a rich history of winning and in its initial season, the Bulldogs went 4-4-1 and placed 3rd in the Illowa Conference. Two years later in 1955, Armstrong Stadium witnessed Bettendorf go 6-2 while being the Illowa Runner-up and a mere five years after the first game was ever played in the new facility, the 1957 Bulldogs went 7-2 and won their first conference championship. The 1957 marked the beginning of a remarkable run in which Bettendorf not only won four-straight conference titles, but also 25-straight games from 1958-60. As well, the 1960 team was named by the United Press International as the "Mythical State Champions” of Iowa after a stellar season in which they not only defeated Burlington—the previous defending state champion, 34-18—but also set a new school record for most points scored in nine games (42.3 average) will still stands today. That season Head Coach Merritt Parsons was also named “Coach of the Year” by the Des Moines Register while offensive tackle Steve Grossman earned “Quad City Lineman of the Year” honors. Armstrong Stadium was home to the Bulldogs for 27 seasons and in that time span, Bettendorf won eight conference championships in three different conferences: the Illowa, Little Six, and Mississippi Valley. The stadium also oversaw four different Bettendorf head coaches in Wayne Grady, Merrit Parsons, Ray Oles, and Merv Habenicht. Although a new high school was built at the current 18th Street location in 1973, home football games continued to be played at the 23rd Street Stadium until the 1980 season when TouVelle Stadium opened. The old high school and former stadium are now utilized by the Mississippi Bend Area Education Agency (AEA 9).

TouVelle Stadium — 1980-present Built in 1979, TouVelle Stadium and its surrounding facilities are home to Bettendorf High School football, baseball, softball, and track teams and is one of the state's best athletic facilities. The stadium seats approximately 6,000 fans and is located in the north section of the high school campus. Since 1981, TouVelle Stadium has witnessed the football program win seven (7) Class 4A state titles along with over sixteen (16) other playoff appearances. As well, the field has overseen three notable winning streaks: 36 games from 1987-89, 30 games from 1991-93, and 24 games from 2007-2008. The stadium has also been home to twelve (12) conference championship teams. TouVelle Stadium has also been the home to many legendary Bulldogs who have played on its turf: from noseguard Hap Peterson to running backs Greg Brown and Tavian Banks as well as wide receiver Colin Sandeman and linebacker Pat Angerer. Named in honor after Dr. Alwyn TouVelle, a memorial on the walkway leading into the stadium describes Dr. TouVelle as a man "...who for 25 years gave unselfishly his time and energy as team physician for Bettendorf High School. His devotion to our school and community has served as an inspiration for all to emulate" and was dedicated on September 18, 1981.

Coach Merv Habenicht Field In a wonderful testimony to his tremendous contributions, at the May 21, 2012 regular school board meeting, the Bettendorf School Board unanimously voted to name the football game field within TouVelle Stadium after Coach Merv Habenicht in honor of his remarkable achievements as the head coach of the Bulldogs from 1971-99. In a statement released citing board policy guiding the naming of school facilities, the Board of Education recognizes the official name selected for a facility is a vital factor in the public image of the community: “It is the intent of the Board to name schools and other facilities within the district in a manner that evokes pride in students, school employees, parents/guardians, and the community.” Habenicht spent 29 years as coach of the Bulldogs, compiling a record of 229-70-1 during his career, winning five state championships and 10 conference titles and going 30-10 in his 15 trips to the playoffs. While leading the Bulldogs, he coached 70 all-state players and was inducted into the Iowa High School Football Coaches Hall of Fame in 1988. On Friday, August 31st, 2012, before the home game versus Davenport Central, Bettendorf held its ceremony to officially rename the ground, “Coach Merv Habenicht Field” which not only honored Coach Habenicht’s accomplishments, but also recognized the love the community had for their one-of-a-kind icon. At the ceremony on his behalf were numerous family members of Coach Habenicht including his wife, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. That night Bettendorf players donned decals that read “HAB” on the back of their helmets en route to defeating Central, 35-14. Habenicht’s legacy rings true to the fact that his goal wasn’t to live forever, but to create something that will.

Mrs. Eveyln Habenicht, center, is flanked by her sister, Madlyn Wafful (left) and great-grandson, Jack Roche (right), prior to the naming of the field ceremony. Former head Coach Randy Scott (back right) and ex-Bulldog running Andrew McFedries (back to camera) are also present.

Athletic Training Room The Mission Statement of the Bettendorf Sports Medicine Team is, “To enhance the quality of health care given to the student athletes at Bettendorf High School, and to ensure a safe and swift return to the normal activities of daily life and athletics.” From 1973 to 1992, the Athletic Training facilities were located in the boys’ locker room but in the fall of 1993 were moved across the hall and replaced the equipment storage room under the direction of Mr. Paul Flynn; this move provided access for both boys and girls to the same athletic facility. In 2002, the Athletic Training facilities were relocated to a larger and up-to-date facility in the new Bettendorf High Fitness Center—a 7,500-square-foot building attached to the east side of the high school that is immediately accessible to all athletic and physical education areas. The center houses weights, exercise equipment and cardiovascular equipment. The Bettendorf High School Athletic Training Staff is dedicated not only to the student-athlete and their future, but to promoting communication with the parents/guardians of those athletes. With continual training and education, the highest level of immediate treatment, rehabilitation, and care will be provided. The promotion of injury prevention through proper technique and physical conditioning will be stressed through education of coaches and student athletes.

The Winning Streaks THE FIRST STREAK: 25 games from... 1958 - 1959 - 1960 At present time, THE FIRST STREAK’s exact start date (as well as anecdotal records of the time period) is unknown, but what is known is that the groundwork for “The First Streak” actually began in 1957, a mere seven seasons after the inception of the Bettendorf Football program. That season, Bettendorf went 72 and won the first conference championship in school history as members of the relatively new Illowa Conference. Setting the tone that would last for the next fifty-plus years, Bettendorf’s defense was ironclad as it only allowed 90 total points. On offense, the Bulldogs racked up 1,425 total yards—best in the state—and at season’s end then-head coach Merrit Parsons was honored by being named the Quad Cities “Coach of the Year.” To say the least, the Bettendorf Football program was now on the map. In 1958 with high expectations surrounding the program, Bettendorf raced through the season 90 to not only net the first undefeated football season in school history, but also captured the Illowa Conference crown for the second consecutive season. The Bulldog’s defense, spearheaded by sophomore linebacker Stu Sparling, was balanced by Bettendorf’s single wing offense led by quarterback Don Gray (1,088 rushing yards, 755 passing yards, 10 TDs). Gray was complemented by spinback Dave Cox (1,156 rushing yards, 680 receiving yards) and both players earned All-State recognition as the Bulldogs had the number one rushing and scoring offense in the state of Iowa. Cumulatively, Bettendorf outscored their opponents, 306-95, and such that, were ranked #10 by the Iowa Daily Press Association in its final poll. The 1959 campaign proved to be just as successful as the ’58 season as Bettendorf again sliced through the season unbeaten to a 7-0-1 record while lengthening “The First Streak” to 16-straight wins. Bettendorf’s offense, anchored by tackles Dale Dexter and running back Scott Rocker, again out gained their opponents by amassing 2,544 yards of total offense while scoring 193 total points. The defense, yet again anchored by Stuart Sparling and his teamleading 55 tackles, limited their opponents to only 1,152 yards and 70 total points and eventually wound up as the 10th best defensive squad in the entire State. The only setbacks—if one would call them that— occurred in Week #5 when the Bulldogs tied Newman, 12-12, and one month later the last scheduled game of the season against Assumption was cancelled due to a blizzard. Nevertheless, Bettendorf again captured the Illowa Conference Championship—their third in a row—while finishing the season ranked #12 by the Iowa Daily Press Association and both Rocker and Dexter were named to the Des Moines Register AllState football team. The 1960 season not only dawned a new decade upon the Bulldogs, but also new opponents as Bettendorf became members of the newly-formed Little 6 Conference and their schedule consisted of such teams as Burlington, North Scott, Muscatine, and Davenport Assumption—all who would become rivals of Bettendorf for decades. © 2002-13 www.bettendorffootball.com

Edition 5.0 – Febuary 8, 2013


Soaring anticipation also surrounded the program and that anticipation was exceeded as Bettendorf’s offense mercilessly outscored their opponents, 381-98, to set a new school record for scoring 42.3 points per game that still stands today. Offensive tackles Steve Grossman and John Hartung, along with center John Cain, paved the way for halfback Rocker’s 959 rushing yards and 19 touchdowns. Sparling, for the third season in a row, led the team in tackles with 54 and was aided by the stout defensive play of defensive back Bud Reiselt. To say the least, no one even challenged the Bulldogs during the entire season. The Bulldogs finished the ’60 campaign with a perfect record 9-0 not only for the second time in three years, but also with their fourth-straight conference championship. As well, their unbeaten streak now stood at 26-straight games. In all, seven Bulldogs earned All-State honors by the Des Moines Register and included 1st team players Rocker and Grossman, 5th team performer Sparling, and Honorable Mention competitors Cain, Hartung, Reiselt, and Jim Dilts. Additionally, Grossman earned “Quad City Lineman of the Year” honors and Parsons was named by the Des Moines Register as “Coach of the Year.” Furthermore, nine Bulldog seniors who had played together since 7th grade—Tom Johnson, Gary Rinehart, Rookie Barretto, John Brooke, Cain, Rocker, Grossman, Sparling, and Reiselt—capped a football career in which they never lost a game in five years. However, the most notable and impressive accomplishment was the United Press International naming of Bettendorf as the “Mythical State Champions” of Iowa. Of course, it wouldn’t be until 1972 that an actual playoff system was implemented in Iowa (and not until 1981 that Bettendorf would outright win their first state championship) but regardless, the U.P.I.’s crowning of Bettendorf in 1960 will always belong to that squad who will forever be known as the “Original State Football Champs of Bettendorf.” Unfortunately, the 25-0-1 unbeaten streak ended with the ’60 squad as Bettendorf lost the 1961 season opener to Cedar Rapids Regis, 10-21.

THE SECOND STREAK: 36 games from... 1987 - 1988 - 1989 THE SECOND STREAK began on Friday, September 5th, 1987, when an unranked Bulldog squad opened up the ’87 season with a 260 victory over North Scott; from that point on, the Bulldog’s offense—both methodical and punishing—never stopped and was led by junior tailback Greg Brown (1,515 yards, 26 TDs) who led all of Class 4A in rushing that season. Brown’s path was cleared by fullback Clint Watkins (845 yards, 16 TDs) along with a mammoth offensive line in the likes of tackle Joe Judge and guards Brad Schoenfelder and Scott Roberts. While the offense virtually steamrolled over every opponent, the defense—featuring standout ends Adam Bergeron and Gregg Folks, tackles Steve McCall and Eric Carlson, noseguard Mike Woolverton, linebackers Brian West and Scott Downs, and defensive back Andy Wall—simultaneously shut them down. Simply put, every time they took the field, the Bulldogs made a statement.

Edition 5.0 – Febuary 8, 2013


The Bulldogs ended the regular season with an 8-0 record—only the third time a Bettendorf team had done so since 1966—and for the fifth time in school history qualified for the Class 4A playoffs. In the 1st Round, Bettendorf hammered Pleasant Valley, 38-13, to advance to the Quarterfinals against a Davenport West squad they had previously defeated 43-7 the last game of the regular season; however, this time around, the contest was much closer but the Bulldogs manage to edge the Falcons, 19-14, to meet the Dubuque Wahlert Eagles in the Semifinals. Early in the game Bettendorf found themselves down, 14-0, before responding by rattling off five-straight touchdowns on the way to a 35-14 victory to propel themselves into the 4A title game for only the third time in school history. The title game contest against the Dowling Maroons of West Des Moines was a defensive battle and the Bulldog’s crew alone stopped Dowling four different times inside the red zone. At halftime with the score reading 0-0, Bettendorf Head Coach Merv Habenicht and his staff convened in the locker room while his wife, Evelyn Habenicht, stood in on his behalf as he was inducted into the Iowa High School Football Coaches Hall of Fame. The game remained scoreless after it restarted in the 3rd quarter but during the final period, Bettendorf finally drew first blood when Watkins scored from one-yard out to take a 7-0 lead. However, on their next possession, the Maroons countered with a touchdown and elected to go for the win with a two-point conversion. In what would be the play of the game, junior defensive back Scott Franks knocked away a pass and when the clock reached 0:00, the Bulldogs remained the only unbeaten team in Class 4A by capping a perfect 12-0 season with their 7-6 victory over Dowling. The title game itself was a prophecy fulfilled: the seniors had been told as early as 7th grade that someday they would win a state title. In the post-season, Judge, Schoenfelder, and McCall earned 1st Team All-State honors while 2nd Team players included Brown, Bergeron, and kicker Chad Skogman. As well, Augie Gutierrez was named to the 3rd Team as a kicker. At the beginning of the 1988 season, Bettendorf was ranked #1 by the Coaches Poll as they returned a core group of players that included Brown, Roberts, receiver LaVance Banks, noseguard Dave Donohoo, defensive tackle Jason Reading, linebackers Downs and Sok On Yi, and Franks. In what would be both a history and record smashing season, Bettendorf began their quest for a secondstraight state title with a lopsided victory over North Scott—this time 43-3—and then juggernauted through the regular season to finish 9-0 and thus extend the winning streak to 21 games. Junior quarterback Matt Ulrich directed the offense and by the end of the season amassed 923 yards in passing with 15 touchdowns; his most prolific targets were receivers Banks (25 receptions for 634 yards, 7 TDs) and tight end Jeff Deere (27 receptions for 378 yards, 5 TDs). Banks was also a threat every time he returned a punt as he totaled 500 yards in just 17 returns while scoring 5 touchdowns. Bettendorf’s aerial attack was merely the icing on the cake and was offset by the rushing of Brown (1,722 yards, 26 TDs) and junior fullback Tony LaMarre (618 yards, 8 TDs) who both punished opposing defenses with their speed and brawn. Simply put, either through air or land, the offense was unstoppable. Bettendorf’s biggest test of the regular season came five weeks into the season when a clerical error regarding a transfer student came to light and it was initially believed that because the player—a reserve who was technically ineligible because while he had switched schools, his residency had remained the same—had participated in several games, the contests would have to be forfeited. © 2002-13 www.bettendorffootball.com

However, then-Athletic Director Chuck Nolting presented the Bulldog’s case to the Iowa High School Athletic Association who subsequently ruled with confidence that the gaffe was simply a bookkeeping mistake and no games would have to be forfeited—thus, the Second Streak continued onward. In the 1st Round of the ‘88 playoffs the Bulldogs once again nearly stumbled to a team they had defeated previously when they pulled out a 15-13 victory over Pleasant Valley; merely five days earlier during the last game of the regular season, Bettendorf had blanked the Spartans 28-0. Regaining their composure as well as their attitude, the Bulldogs then rolled over the Iowa City High Little Hawks, 33-0, in the Quarterfinals and then for the second straight year, beat Dubuque Wahlert in the Semifinals, 20-6, to once-again find themselves in the 4A state championship game. The Dawgs were not only the defending state champs, but also—depending on which poll one believed—the #1-ranked team about to do battle with other #1-ranked team in the Newton Cardinals. The 1988 title game was a rematch of the 1980 state championship—Bettendorf’s first-ever appearance in the title game in which Newton handily won, 28-14. However, this time around after a first-half slugfest which saw three lead changes, Bettendorf eventually took control in the second half—especially after defensive back Matt Rebro literally knocked off Newton running back Chad Gutherie’s helmet— and won, 28-12, to capture their second-straight state title (which at that point in history had never before been accomplished in Class 4A). Bettendorf’s final 13-0 record set a new school record for most victories in a season and the Bulldogs not only earned a national ranking of #18 by the L.A. Times, but also extended their winning streak to 25-straight games. Moreover, Habenicht earned the Iowa Football Coaches Association “District Coach of the Year” award while also being named the Des Moines Register “Class 4A Coach of the Year”. Although disputable, the 1988 team was labeled by many as “The Best Bettendorf Team Ever” and featured four 1st Team All-State players in Roberts, Brown, Reading, and Downs while linebacker Yi earned 2nd Team recognition. At the beginning of the 1989 season, Bettendorf was rated as the undisputed #1-ranked team by both the Coaches Poll and the Des Moines Register based on the fact that they were the two-time defending state champions who returned several key players on both offense and defense. Leading the charge on offense was LaMarre (now playing his natural position of tailback), Ulrich, and center Wes Arensdorf while returning defensive starters included end Ken Koehler, Rebro (who was moved to linebacker), and defensive back Matt Brown. Such that, the 1989 squad was firmly intent on winning an unprecedented third-straight 4A state title while maintaining The Streak—both tasks that were easier said than done. The ‘89 Bulldog offense relied mainly on the legs of LaMarre who eventually rushed for a 4A-best 1,721 yards and 31 touchdowns and his path was cleared by fullback Eric Arguello and offensive linemen Mike Evans, Mike McNamara, Mike Murphy, and Arensdorf. Ulrich, now a seasoned quarterback, made opposing defenses pay for stacking nine men in the box as he threw for a total of 753 yards and 6 touchdowns and his main target was junior tight end Rob Benson (23 receptions for 372 yards, 2 TDs). © 2002-13 www.bettendorffootball.com

Edition 5.0 – Febuary 8, 2013


After opening up the season with a 42-0 blasting of Pleasant Valley, Bettendorf zipped through the M.A.C. to both an 8-0 record and an Honorable Mention “Team to Watch” in USA Today; along the way, the Bulldogs litmus tests came in the form of both Davenport North and Central but both times rose to the occasion to win 17-0 and 21-14, respectively. As always, Bettendorf’s defense played ruthlessly and was powered by ends Koehler and Eric Doerder, noseguard John Elkin, linebacker Rebro, and defensive backs Jimmy Kerker, Chad Fors, Bill Dockery, and Brown. So hardnosed was the defense that against Clinton, Bettendorf took a 41-0 halftime lead and all starters were pulled at the beginning of the 3rd quarter while in the North contest, the Bulldogs limited the Wildcat’s offense to just 48 total offensive yards and never allowed them to cross the 50-yard line. Nonetheless, the #1-ranked Bulldogs biggest challenge awaited them in the season finale—a game that would decide the 1989 Mississippi Athletic Conference champion. Enter Bettendorf’s foe: the 8-0 and #3-ranked Burlington Grayhounds who would pit their high-powered and top-rated M.A.C. offense against Bettendorf’s stingy, state-leading defense that only allowed 9.9 points per game. Such that, the season finale was showcased as a “Clash of Titans” match-up and despite the 7,000 plus people who packed into TouVelle Stadium hoping to witness one last great games of the decade, the Bulldogs bolted to a 27-0 halftime lead. The second half was mostly uneventful and in the end, Bettendorf’s 3412 victory not only extended The Streak to 34-straight wins, but also propelled the Bulldogs into the 4A playoffs with momentum. A 28-6 victory over Davenport Assumption in the 1st Round advanced Bettendorf to the Quarterfinals where they again were matched against the Little Hawks of Iowa City High. The game was a dogfight and at halftime Bettendorf led, 3-0. However, midway through the 4th quarter, City High scored to take a 7-3 advantage and became the first opponent that season to ever lead the Bulldogs. Yet, on their next possession, Bettendorf rose to the challenge and drove the length of the field only to face a 4th and 4 near the goal line; with more than just the season on the line, LaMarre took the handoff from Ulrich and ran untouched into the endzone as Bettendorf retook the lead. The Bulldog defense stopped the Little Hawks on their next drive and another score by the offense sealed a 16-7 victory to not only advance the Bulldogs one game from the championship round, but upped The Streak to 36-straight wins. In the Semifinal Round, Bettendorf faced an arduous opponent in the Linn-Mar Lions (10-1) whose sole loss had been a 10-8 thriller to the Iowa City Little Hawks. Although the Lions scored on their opening drive, Bettendorf responded immediately and led 7-6 until midway through the 3rd quarter when a blocked punt inside the Dawg’s own red zone allowed Linn-Mar to retake the lead. Several other uncharacteristic turnovers eventually doomed Bettendorf and they eventually lost, 25-7, on Saturday, November 11, 1989, ending both Bettendorf’s 36-game winning streak and a bid for a third-straight state championship. In the post-season, Habenicht was named the “M.A.C. Coach of the Year” while LaMarre, Koehler, Rebro, and Elkin earned 1st Team All-State honors. As well, Arensdorf and Evans were named to both the 2nd and 3rd teams, respectively. Most certainly, over 150 players in a three-year span contributed to what is the longest winning streak in Class 4A in the last fifty years. After the game, Habenicht said in The Quad City Times, “I just hope some day we can do again what we’ve accomplished the past three years.” In this context, did “Humble Hab” know that “again” would be as little as two seasons later when “The Third Streak” would begin? © 2002-13 www.bettendorffootball.com

THE THIRD STREAK: 30 games from... 1991 - 1992 - 1993 THE THIRD STREAK began on Friday, October 16, 1991, during Week #7 and would continue through the 1992 season all the way into post-season play of 1993; Habenicht’s prophetic comment, “I just hope some day we can do again what we’ve accomplished these past three years...” would ring so true that some wondered, “Did he know all along?” The Bulldogs opened up the ’91 season with a 13-15 loss to Burlington but then rebounded by winning four straight games which included a 31-13 victory over eventual-M.A.C. champion Davenport Assumption. “The Third Streak” officially began when the Bulldogs, coming off a 14-28 loss to Clinton in Week #6, smashed the Lancers of North Scott, 48-6, en route to a 7-2 regular season finish to qualify for the Class 4A playoffs; it was tongue-in-cheek that the Bulldogs actually finished fourth in the conference behind Assumption, Clinton, and Burlington—but would eventually be the team to beat in 4A. To say the least, junior tailback Tavian Banks—who the year before missed the entire season after breaking his leg in a season-opener—led the state with his 9.2 average per carry and rushed for a total of 1,905 yards and 32 touchdowns and his path was cleared by offensive lineman Keith Lucier and Eric Lyons—both 1st Team All-State selections. The traditional Bettendorf defense was as tightfisted as ever and was anchored by tackle Jed Orgill and end Pat Bateman who also both earned All-State honors after the season. During the 1991 playoffs, Bettendorf clearly peaked by outscoring their opponents 127-41. A 31-15 rout of Davenport Assumption in the 1st Round was followed by a 55-17 revenge-thrashing of Burlington during the Quarterfinals. In the Semifinals against Dubuque Wahlert, defensive back Mitch Harvey intercepted four Eagle passes in a sound 41-9 victory to propel Bettendorf into their 5th title game appearance since 1980 against the Sioux City Heelan Crusaders. The championship game was a defensive battle and Banks scored the only touchdown on a 68-yard fake-reverse scamper as Bettendorf won their seventh consecutive game, 6-0, as well as the school’s fourth Class 4A state football title. In 1992, Bettendorf had a wealth of returning starters, including Banks, and soundly beat every opponent as they raced through the regular season to a 9-0 record. Entering the 4A playoffs as the #1ranked team and owner of 16-straight victories, Bettendorf was first tested by Davenport Assumption in the 1st Round but prevailed 28-18. The next trial in the Quarterfinal match was against the Iowa City High Little Hawks—a rising force in Class 4A—who were led by speedy running back Tim Dwight who was only a junior. Bettendorf initially was stunned by the Little Hawks who took an early 14-0 lead, however, the Bulldogs battled back by scoring twenty-four straight points and eventually won, 31-28, to meet Cedar Rapids Jefferson in the Semifinal Round. A 14-0 triumph against the J-Hawks advanced the 12-0 Bulldogs to the state championship game where they met the West Des Moines Valley Tigers who also boasted an impressive 12-0 record. However, the Tigers were no match for the Bulldogs and in a then-historical 41-0 smashing, Bettendorf not only won their fifth and second pair of back-to-back Class 4A state championships, but they also recorded their 20th © 2002-13 www.bettendorffootball.com

consecutive win. Banks, a Parade All-American running back, ran for 250 yards and 4 touchdowns in the game to end his senior year with a total of 2,394 yards and 42 touchdowns; the tailback owed much credit to his offensive line consisting of guard Brent Kock, center Chris Miller, end Shane McCallister, and All-State tackle Corey Ryan. The defense also had its share of great players in the likes of end Chris Lensing and linebacker Eric Hoch—both of whom earned 1st Team All-State honors—as well as linebacker Mike Sage who was 2nd Team All-State selection. Entering the 1993 season as the #1-ranked team, Bettendorf—without a doubt—was the team to beat and they proved that by carving through the regular season uncontested. The Bulldogs outscored their opponents, 405-103—an average score of 45-11—en route to a 9-0 record while not only capturing their fifth M.A.C. title in seven years, but also extending the streak to 29 straight-wins. Simply put, the Bulldogs handily defeated every single M.A.C. opponent they encountered and this was proven by the fact that their closest game point-wise was a 49-22 victory over Davenport North. The offense was built around Paul Harnung (1,636 yards, 29 TDs) and Ron McQuay (1,072 yards, 18 TDs) who not only took turns leading the M.A.C. in rushing, but also became the first pair of Bettendorf backs since 1958 to rush for more than 1,000 yards in one season. Both players had their paths cleared for them by end Frank Lawler, tackles Brock Ryan and Eric Hull, center Chris Taylor, and Brent Kock who provided quarterback Scott Longval plenty of time to complete 50 passes for 815 yards and 7 touchdowns. Placekicker Matt Schara, an eventual 1st Team All-State pick, was also deadly accurate as he made 58/60 extra points and 3/4 field goals during the season. As well—despite the redundancy—the Bulldog defense yet again complemented the offense by limiting 7 of their 11 opponents from scoring more than two touchdowns a game and was led by the crew of end Rick Adriano, tackles Chris Cowherd and Shane Pearson, and back Jeff Mossbrucker. Much like the 1989 squad four years before them, the 1993 team marched into the 4A playoffs intent on winning an unprecedented third-straight 4A state championship. In the 1st Round game, the Bulldogs faced Davenport Assumption—their new M.A.C. rival whom they had defeated 34-7 during the regular season and this time around the Knights challenged the Bulldogs. After a hard-fought game, Bettendorf ultimately prevailed, 21-18, to advance to the second round of the playoffs. “The Third Streak” now stood at 30-straight games and the Bulldogs—for the fourth time in six years—were paired against the Iowa City High Little Hawks in the Quarterfinals. Over 7,000 fans made TouVelle Stadium a standing-room-only venue; however, in this game, Dwight was a senior and wanted revenge—which, after yet another intense Bettendorf-Iowa City High brawl, he earned when his Little Hawks beat Bettendorf, 27-14, to end “The Third Streak” on Monday, November 8, 1993. The defeat not only ended Bettendorf’s 30-game winning streak, but also their bid for a third-straight state championship. For post-season honors, Harnung, Kock, Ryan, and Schara were selected to the 1st Team All-State Squad while Mossbrucker, Adriano, Pearson, and Cowherd all earned 2nd Team honors. As well, McQuay was a 3rd Team selection at running back while long-time assistant coach Randy Scott earned “Assistant Coach of the Year” honors by the Iowa Football Coaches Association. The Third Streak also marked the end of an era as not only would fourteen years would pass before another winning streak was born, but also the retirement of Merv Habenicht and the fact that Bettendorf would not play for another state title until the year 2000. © 2002-13 www.bettendorffootball.com

THE FOURTH STREAK: 24 games from... 2007 - 2008 While THE FOURTH STREAK began on Friday, August 31st, 2007, the foundation for it was actually set nine and a half months earlier in 2006 when Bettendorf met Cedar Rapids Xavier in the Semifinal Round of the 4A playoffs. The Bulldogs were on the verge of playing for the state championship as with less then 2 minutes in the game, they were tied with Xavier, 14-14. Although the Bulldog’s offense had been mostly stifled by a stout Xavier defense, Bettendorf was playing their usual brand of grind-it-out football and had taken the ball down the length of the field to Xavier’s 4yard line; about to score, Bettendorf’s favorable circumstances abruptly reversed when on the ensuing play tailback Jake Eikenberry was hit during the quarterback-running back exchange and the ball hit the ground… and in a play since dubbed “The Immaculate Recovery,” the pigskin was scooped up by a Xavier defender who then to rambled 96-yards to the opposite end of the field to score and put Xavier up for good, 21-14. From that lesson all Bulldogs learned to never take anything granted—and from the beginning of the 2007 season the team not only played with a chip on their shoulder, but also with a purpose: to not only get to the state championship game, but to win it and reclaim the Destiny they seemingly had been denied the season before. The 2007 squad was overabundant in talent and were led by a plethora of offensive players that included offensive linemen Dan Bettenhausen and Seth Mosbrucker—both of whom would protect junior quarterback Danny Tharp (128 completions for 1,903 yards, 15 TDs) who could easily handoff to running back Jake Eikenberry (135 carries for 1,004 yards, 16 TDs) as he could throw to Billy Rembold (51 receptions for 892 yards, 13 TDs), Carter Ridenour (36 receptions for 536 yards, 8 TDs), and Mitch Overstreet (19 receptions for 280 yards, 1 TD). Defensively, the Bulldogs were led by ends Pete Kabler, Eric Speidel, and Adam Coleman, linebackers Anthony Losasso and Mitch Jurevitz, and backs Garrett Scott and Doug Smith. On the same note, it would also be worth mentioning that punter Nate Meyer’s leg was an overlooked and underestimated weapon. The 2007 Bulldogs opened up their season with not only a #1-state ranking, but also a 62-0 blasting of Davenport West. The following week the Bulldogs throttled Davenport North 50-0 and it wouldn’t be until the third game—against Davenport Assumption—that an opponent would score: the Knights were led by running back Willie Argo—who eventually went on to break the M.A.C. touchdown record that season—but in this contest he was held in check as Bettendorf won, 21-14. Having outscored their first three opponents 133-14, the Bulldogs then went on a five-game scoring spree that witnessed them scoring 250 points with wins over Burlington (49-20), Muscatine (47-10), Clinton (49-0), Davenport Central (56-14), and Pleasant Valley (49-0). By the season finale Bettendorf was not only 80, but also the undisputed #1-team in Iowa. The last game of the regular season was against North Scott who the year before not only had blanked the Bulldogs, 17-0, in the M.A.C. championship game, but also thoroughly embarrassed them. However, it’s © 2002-13 www.bettendorffootball.com

noteworthy to point out that while North Scott would finish the regular season 9-0, they lost to Iowa City High in the 1st Round of the Playoffs while the 8-1 Bulldogs advanced to the Semifinals. This time around though, North Scott squad was no match for the Bulldogs who dismantled the Lancers, 36-6, and entered the playoffs as the team to beat in Class 4A. In the 1st Round the Bulldogs were paired with the Little Hawks of Iowa City High—a team they had faced the previous three seasons in the playoffs. The Bulldogs and Little Hawks first met in the post-season in 1988 and since that initial game have had some classic contests such as Bettendorf’s 1989 come-from-behind 16-7 Quarterfinal victory, 1992’s “Banks vs. Dwight” Quarterfinal battle that Bettendorf won, 31-28, and the 17-13 loss 1st Round loss in 2005 that occurred in the final minute of the game. The 2007 game would be no different as yet another street fight ensued and this contest was seemingly a war of attrition. By the 3rd quarter, it was obvious that Bettendorf’s traditional platoon system was wearing down many of the Little Hawk’s two-way starters and despite a valiant effort by Iowa City, Bettendorf emerged as 35-28 victors. In the Quarterfinals, the Bulldogs had to once again face Davenport Assumption and this time around the Bulldogs silenced all detractors who speculated that the Knights’ lone loss of the season was a fluke as Bettendorf easily won, 35-14. Returning to the Semifinals for the third time in four years, the Bulldogs battled the Tigers of Cedar Falls in another classic match up that ended in regulation with a 0-0 tie. In overtime, Cedar Valley was unable to score a touchdown and their 4th down field goal attempt was blocked by junior Kyle Lichtenberg. Wasting no time, Bettendorf elected to kick a field goal on 1st down and Rembold’s successful kick gave the Bulldogs a 6-3 overtime victory and propelled them into the 4A state championship game. Bettendorf entered the 4A title game with a 12-0 record and was playing for their second state title in four seasons. Matched up against the Ankeny Hawks, this was not only the first meeting between the two teams, but also the first time since 1997 that the Hawks were playing for a state title. Ankeny entered the game with both an 11-1 record and dangerous Power-T offense that had definitely peaked during the playoffs as indicated by their lopsided victories in the first two rounds. On the third play of the opening series, Bettendorf running back Jared Masterson busted loose and rambled 59-yards down the sideline to Ankeny’s 3-yard line; two plays later Anthony Losasso—in for Jake Eikenberry who suffered a season-ending injury in the 1st Round game—scored to put Bettendorf ahead, 7-0. Seemingly, Bettendorf was headed for a rout of Ankeny—but the game that followed was probably one of the best 4A title contests ever. Ankeny’s offense—a mixture of the Wing-T, Wishbone, and Belly series—virtually owned the field from their 5-yard line to the Bulldog’s 5-yard line and were able to run the ball at will and although Bettendorf’s defense slowed them down, the Hawks managed to rush for 5.1 yards per carry (for a game total of 287 yards). After Ankeny tied the game 7-7, Bettendorf next scored on a 65-yard pass play from Tharp to Rembold to put Bettendorf up 14-7. However, over the course of the game Ankeny’s run game took a toll on Bettendorf and although they couldn’t punch it into the endzone, the Hawks scored threestraight field goals to own a 16-14 lead with less two and a half minutes remaining in the contest. © 2002-13 www.bettendorffootball.com

Edition 5.0 – Febuary 8, 2013


After returning the kick to their own 20-yard line, Tharp went under center and with a tough Ankeny defense blanketing his receivers, threw three straight incomplete passes. Obviously, the Bulldogs faced a dire situation: down 16-14 and facing 4th and 10 from their own 20-yard line with literally two minutes left in the game, head coach Randy Scott had no choice but to go for it—and Tharp’s 23-yard completion to Rembold began one of the most memorable drives in Bettendorf history. Tharp completed four straight passes to both Scott, Overstreet, and Ridenour while rushing for one yard to put the Bulldogs on Ankeny’s 19-yard line with :24 seconds left in the game. Then, in a brilliant tactical move, Bettendorf took a shot at the endzone—and to the surprise of everyone except the Bulldogs— Rembold caught the pass and with his successful extra point, put the Bulldogs ahead 21-16 with :12 seconds left in the game; three plays later Bettendorf won their seventh state championship in school history to cap Part I of the Fourth Streak. Bettendorf players not only dominated the All-Conference squad, but also the annual All-State teams selected by the Des Moines Register and Iowa Newspaper Association: 1st team picks included Coleman, Scott, Mosbrucker, Losasso, and Meyer while Kabler and Rembold landed on the 2nd Team. As well, Overstreet was a 3rd team selection and Bettenhausen earned Academic All-State honors. Also, Randy Scott—who would retire from coaching shortly after the 2007 season—was named as the “M.A.C. Coach of the Year” while Tharp earned “Red Zone Player of the Year” honors. As a team, Bettendorf was ranked #30 in the nation by MaxPreps, #32 by Student Sports, and the “Best Team in Iowa” by Sports Illustrated. Part II of the Fourth Streak continued the following year when the Bettendorf opened up the 2008 season with a new head coach in Aaron Wiley who had served as an assistant since 1997; originally hired by former head coach Merv Habenicht, Wiley had served as the defensive coordinator for both Habenicht and Scott and under their tutelage was certainly ready to lead the Bulldogs into their next chapter of success. Although the Bulldogs were the #1 ranked team in Iowa at the beginning of the season, it was a designation they would eventually lose to West Des Moines Valley based on comparative scores. Regardless, a convincing 37-7 victory over Pleasant Valley was the fourteenth straight victim in the Fourth Streak and the following game Bettendorf mercilessly pounded Muscatine, 52-12. However, unlike the season before in which the Bulldogs razored through the season, victories in the 2008 campaign didn’t come as easily: although the final result of the third game was a 35-0 victory over Davenport North, the Week 4 game against Clinton wasn’t assured until the 4th quarter. As well, the following game against North Scott witnessed the Bulldogs come-from-behind in the 3rd quarter to win, 24-16. Nevertheless, Bettendorf still outplayed their opponents on a week-by-week basis and such victories included a 45-13 thrashing of Davenport West, a 42-0 drubbing of Davenport Central, and a 31-15 conquest over Burlington. The season finale against Davenport Assumption ended in a 31-7 © 2002-13 www.bettendorffootball.com

victory and the fact was Bettendorf had outscored their nine regular season opponents, 332-87—not a far cry from 2007’s 418-63 totals. Bettendorf thus entered the playoffs with a perfect 9-0 record—joining only West Des Moines Valley and Iowa City High as the remaining undefeated teams in Class 4A. However, playoffs state-wide had changed in format with the implementation of a Substate game which literally doubled the number of participants in 4A from 16 to 32 and critics— which were many—of the Substate game cited that the playoffs would now be “watered down” as a result of many 5-4 and some 4-5 teams now qualifying for the Substate game. For the most part, the higher-seeded teams dominated their opponents except in a few cases— most notably, M.A.C teams suffered the brunt of the new Substate game: North Scott, who ended the season with an 8-1 record, lost to Dubuque Wahlert who was one of the few 4-5 teams to qualify for the playoffs while 7-2 Burlington lost to 5-4 Dubuque Hempstead. Bettendorf was paired against 4-5 Clinton—a team they had soundly defeated during the regular season but simply put, since Clinton had nothing to lose, they gave the Bulldogs a run for their money and with less than eight minutes remaining in the game, the River Kings owned a 21-20 lead. In response the Bulldogs, as they had all season long, displayed their true grit and with a long drive, touchdown, and successful two-point conversion, eventually claimed a 28-21 victory that extended their winning streak to 23-straight games. In the 1st Round game, the Bulldogs met Cedar Rapids Prairie—a team they had previously never played—and rebounded by thrashing the Hawks, 28-3, for their 24th-consecutive win. In the Quarterfinals the Bulldogs had to travel to Cedar Rapids to take on Mississippi Valley foe the Washington Warriors who featured a dangerous spread offense. Unfortunately, history does repeat itself and like the 1989 team twenty seasons before, the 2008 squad became their own worst enemy and committed five turnovers—four in the first half—and all four turnovers led to Warrior touchdowns. Hence, in a strange land on Monday, November 7th, 2008, the Fourth Streak came to an abrupt end when Bettendorf lost to Washington, 48-27. Post-season, Bulldogs dominated the All-Conference and All-Metro teams while five players earned 1st Team All-State honors: Overstreet, Lichtenberg, wide receiver Pat Brown, punter Nate Meyer, and defensive lineman Casey Nabb. As well, linebacker Mitch Jurevitz earned 3rd Team honors while Meyer and Overstreet became just the sixteenth and seventeenth players in Bettendorf history to earn AllState honors twice. Since 1951, Bettendorf has won 423 games and 115 of those victories—27%—have been won in a row at one time or another over the course of eight seasons and five different decades. Machiavelli said it best: "Whoever wishes to foresee the future must consult the past" and regarding another Bettendorf football winning streak, it would be neither arrogant nor overconfident to say as it has happened before, it will happen again.

Illowa Conference — 1953-59 The Bettendorf Football program began in 1951 and for the first two seasons the Bulldogs were independents and not affiliated with any league. However, in 1953 they became members of the newly-formed Illowa Conference and as the name implied, consisted of both Iowa and Illinois team; on the Iowa side, St. Mary’s of Clinton, DeWitt, and Bettendorf comprised nearly half the league while Illinois schools Amboy, Fulton, Lyons, Morrison, Newman, and Savanna completed the conference. There certainly were some great games among the Illowa Conference rivalries and in 1954 the enmity spilled from the field into the parking lot as the Bettendorf-Amboy game was followed by an unfortunate scuffle in which an Amboy fan died from a concussion. For the seven seasons that Bettendorf was a member of the Illowa Conference, five different teams won the league title and only the Bulldogs won more than one championship and did so its last three seasons they were members from 1957-59. As well, Bettendorf’s domination of the Illowa those last few years also marked the beginning of Bettendorf’s “First Winning Streak” that would ultimately culminate in 1960. Clearly, Bettendorf’s supremacy in the Illowa Conference was just the beginning of the dynasty that would become Bulldog football. Illowa Conference Champions

Little 6 Conference — 1960-68 The Bulldogs became members of the Little 6 conference in 1960 while riding the crest of their 25-game winning streak that occurred from 1958-60. Bettendorf entered the 1960 season after compiling a record of 16-0-1 over the previous two seasons and the only blemish—if one would call it that—was a 12-12 tie during Week #5 of the 1959 season. Unlike the Illowa Conference, the Little 6 consisted of schools only from Iowa and originally included Bettendorf, Burlington, Ottumwa, Muscatine, and Keokuk. In 1964, Davenport Assumption joined the Little 6 to complete the six-team league. To say the least, no one even challenged the Bulldogs during the entire season as the 1960 squad mercilessly outscored their opponents, 381-98, to set a still-held school record by scoring 42.3 points per game en route to a perfect 9-0 record and fourth-straight conference championship. As well, Bettendorf ran its unbeaten streak to 26-straight games and in all, seven Bulldogs earned All-State honors by the Des Moines Register that year. However, the most distinct honor the 1960 squad earned was when the United Press International named Bettendorf as the “Mythical State Champions” of Iowa and although it wouldn’t be until six seasons later in 1966 that Bettendorf won the Little 6 Conference, the Bulldogs added one last league title in 1968—the final year of the Little 6’s existence—to solidify the Bulldog’s domination of yet another conference.

Mississippi Valley Conference — 1969-77 The Mississippi Valley Conference was formed in 1969 and originally consisted of eight teams: Bettendorf, Clinton, Iowa City High, Dubuque Senior, Muscatine, and the Cedar Rapids schools of Jefferson, Kennedy, and Washington. In 1970, one final school—Dubuque Hempstead—joined the M.V.C. to complete the lineup. Bettendorf’s alliance with the M.V.C. marked the beginning of a new era in several regards. First, two years after it was formed, Bettendorf assistant coach Merv Habenicht was appointed as the new head coach and he would lead the Bulldogs for the next twenty-nine seasons while building the program into a [sustainable] dynasty. Second, in 1972 the Iowa High School Athletic Organization finally implemented a playoff system that would finally end the speculation and crowning of “Mythical State Champions” by various newspapers which had occurred since the 1930s. Ironically enough, the very first 4A state champion was M.V.C. member Cedar Rapids Jefferson who defeated West Des Moines Dowling, 6-0, in the title game. Third, the formation of the M.V.C. would prove to be long-lasting as even in the present day it still exists—albeit in two divisions—of mostly the same teams as the original design. The 1969-77 configuration of the M.V.C. was dominated by the J-Hawks of Cedar Rapids Jefferson and proven by their four league titles in nine years. However, the 1974 title was shared by three other schools and included Bettendorf, Cedar Rapids Washington, and Dubuque Hempstead.

Mississippi Eight Conference — 1978-1985 The late 1970’s witnessed a growth in population in Iowa which caused the state’s large metropolitan cities—Cedar Rapids, Davenport, Des Moines, and Waterloo—to expand their secondary schools which subsequently led some of them to change their classification from 3A to 4A. This fact mostly had positive results and one outcome was the realignment of major conferences done so out of respect for location and travel time— and this latter fact benefited schools based out or near the Quad Cities and led to the creation of the Mississippi Eight Conference. The Mississippi Eight consisted of Bettendorf, Burlington, Clinton, Muscatine, North Scott, and the Davenport Schools Assumption, Central, and West. Some of the teams such as Bettendorf, Burlington, Clinton, and Muscatine had been playing one another for years while oddly enough, same-vicinity teams such as Bettendorf and Davenport West had never played one another. However, the prospect of playing both West and Central depended on one’s outlook as between the two schools they had won four of the first six state championships in Class 4A: Central in 1973 and ’76 and West in 1974 and ’77. To say the least, having teams with such pedigrees as members of the Mississippi Eight Conference only bolstered its status. In just its first season of existence, Bettendorf and Central tied for the conference championship and ignited a cross-town rival that would last for the next 15 years. However, for the eight years the Mississippi Eight existed, the Blue Devils claimed the King of the Conference as they won a total of four league championships while Bettendorf claimed three—and in that time period the two schools combined for a total of seven playoff appearances which not only included two state championships, but also a runner-up and semifinal appearance. \

Mississippi Athletic Conference — 1986-present Officially, the Mississippi Athletic Conference was formed in 1986 but in reality it was just an expansion of the Mississippi Eight league as further population growth in the Quad Cities led to the creation of Davenport North while Pleasant Valley—who won the 1985 Class 3A state championship— moved up to Class 4A. The Mississippi Athletic Conference is rich in tradition and known for the classic 1980’s battles between Davenport Central and West to the most recent dogfights between Bettendorf and Davenport Assumption. The M.A.C. is also recognized as one of the toughest 4A conferences in the State and annually has teams ranked in the Top 10. As well, numerous athletes from the M.A.C. have continued their careers collegiately and beyond. To date, since Iowa's 1972 inception of the State Playoffs, current M.A.C. members have won a total of twelve (12) Class 4A state championships: Bettendorf (7), Davenport Central (3), and Davenport West (2); historically speaking, Central and West won four of the first six Class 4A state titles. As well, Pleasant Valley won the Class 3A state title in 1985. Mississippi Athletic Conference Champions

Overtime Games In 1972, Iowa was the first state to adopt an overtime procedure in cases of times in conjunction with the Iowa High School Athletic Association Board of Controls initiating a playoff system for its high school playoffs. In Overtime, each team is given the ball on the 10-yard line with four plays and an opportunity to score; if the game is still tied at the end of the Overtime period, then a second (and subsequent period) shall take place until a winner emerges. From 1951-1971, the Bettendorf Bulldogs played in a total of 186 football games and 9 of them ended in ties; however, of the 410 games they’ve played since 1972, only 6 have gone into Overtime.

There are some interesting facts regarding those six games: 1. To date, Bettendorf has a 4-2 record in Overtime (66% winning record). 2. Three (3) overtime games have taken place against Davenport Assumption where Bettendorf owns a 2-1 advantage. 3. The very first Overtime game in school history took place against Cedar Rapids Washington during Week 3 of the 1975 season that ended with the Bulldogs losing, 28-21, in a four-Overtime thrill at home. After a hard-fought game that ended in tied in regulation, 7-7, Bettendorf had the ball firs in the opening overtime and took four plays to score a touchdown and extra point. However, their score was soon matched by Washington to tie the game, 14-14. In the second period, the visitors then scored a touchdown which was matched by the Bulldogs to even the score 21-21. In the third overtime period, Bettendorf failed to score and the Warriors’ 32-yard field goal attempt was long enough but wide to the left. Washington then had first possession for the fourth overtime and scored an aerial touchdown that decided the game after the Bulldogs failed to convert. 4. The first playoff Overtime game took place against Dubuque Hempstead in the 1st Round of the Class 4A playoffs—which, incidentally, was the first year that the Bulldogs qualified for the playoffs—and ended in favor of Bettendorf when Wayne Perkins blocked a Mustang field goal attempt; the Bulldogs then scored a touchdown to win, 20-14. At the time, this overtime game was only the sixth (6) one to occur in Iowa since the inception of the rule. 5. Bettendorf’s second-ever Overtime game in 1981—a 3-10 loss to Davenport Assumption— occurred when an official signaled an Assumption touchdown when in fact the ball carrier was short of the goal line; this error is backed up by game film.

Edition 5.0 – Febuary 8, 2013


The All-Time Roster was compiled using both game programs and archive score sheets (compiled by coaches at the end-of-the-year). To date, 1,955 names have been inputted and such that, please note that while the list is believed to be about 99.5% accurate, any omissions and/or errors—and there are bound to be some—are purely unintentional. Simply email additions or corrections to webmaster@bettendorffootball.com and the list will be updated. Also, note that this list is not “definitive”—meaning, this is neither an all-time lettermen list nor a roster of every individual who has ever played: although the number is certainly small when compared to the 1,955 names on the list, there are certainly players listed that quit, were injured, or were kicked off the team; this is simply an assemblage of players who at one time or another suited up in the Black & Gold according to the available records.
