The St. Mary’s Mustangs, who met at St. John’s at Cresson on Sunday afternoons, received new uniforms, as shown in this September 1952 photo. Boasting a 16-1 record over the previous two seasons, the Mustangs played all their home games on the Prospect field. Team members include (from left): Linemen — F. Ammer, R. Harrington, D. Smith, R. Rannelli, W. Franks, R. Dionis and R. Rauch; backs — F. Eisel, F. Steinbeiser, M. Casey and W. Mullen. The photo was submitted by Fred Eisel of Kernersville, N.C., formerly of Altoona, and a former Mirror carrier.
