It was a new era for AHS basketball because most summer evenings the cagers were in pickup games at the new Brookside Park court. Also, Ashland’s newest All-Ohio player Bill Rogers was the first Ashland player to use the jump shot. Even with a wrist injury he broke the season record with 441 points plus he scored 35-points against Washington Court House. Although they had 16 wins, they still lost three times to the Ken McCally led Mansfield Tygers and the last time in the sectional finals at Marion. The four new starters for this version of Taylor’s Tots were: Bob Brand (324 pts), Lee Hurd (216 pts), Dick Rickel (115 pts), and 6”5 center Tom Fluke (95 pts).
