As a matter of fact the 1937-38 school year at Glenville was the most rewarding of All to Nate As his football team went unbeaten in West Virginia conference play losing Only to Gene Edwards St. Vincent eleven 26-0, and to Waynes Burg 12-7, in non conference play and his basketball team romped through 28 games without a loss and won the Wavu tourney. Nate must have been mighty proud of this team which included Abe Lilley prank Martino Louis Romano red Davies and Hollis Cottle As its starters. Oth Rohrbough Serwise he would t have ranked it ahead of his great teams of 1929 19-1 and 1939 22-3. ? ? ? won 43 games in Row the pioneers won a game on feb. 8, 1937, and then reeled off 42 More victories before finally losing a game in january of 1939 to Toledo u. On the Toledo floor. The great 1938 team contributed 28 of these 43 victories. I d have to Call that one my Best Rohrbough said the other Day from his Home in Poquoson va., where he has lived since 1946. He had just been informed of winning a place in the West Virginia sports writers Hall of Fame and was mighty Happy about it. I count this one of the great thrills of my life said Nate who had come to Glenville As coach in 1926 after a great career As a football end and basketball guard at West Virginia u. ? ? ? got third place in naia most West virginians remember Nate and his Glenville basketball teams for their great performance in the naia tournament in Kansas City in 1939. The pioneers had passed up the West Virginia conference tourney that year and then battled their Way to the Semi finals of the naia before finally losing to southwestern of Winfield Kan. Southwestern went on to win the championship and Glenville won third place finishing its season with a Fine 21-2 record. That team had lost Martino and Cottle from the year before but got a lot of Good mileage out of Romano Harold Noroski Bob Armstrong Bill Whetsell Lilley Earl Spencer junion Rhoades and Davies. ? ? ? Romano twice All tourney we played some great basketball out there said Nate but most of the teams were too big for us. We fought against great Romano who is now basketball coach at Charleston High school was named to the All tournament team that year and As matter of fact repeated by making the All tourney team the next year although Glenville did t do so Well losing to southwestern again 38-37, after polishing off Wayne tech 50-38, in the first round. The 1939 team was led by Lilley who scored a whopping for that Day 332 Points. Abe had been named the Best Center in the Pittsburgh District by the Pittsburgh Sun Telegraph in 1938, when he scored 356 Points. ? ?

We beat Concord 84-49 up at our place Nate recalled and we later walloped them something like 75-29 in the w. A. Conference tournament. But we did t have a Chance in Athens. It was one of the biggest steals i Ever encountered in my coaching career. The referee called walking on us every time we got the Ball and he would t throw the Ball High enough for our boys to get the tap when we had jumps. I was sizzling after the game.". ? ? ? starts free for All Rohrbough recalls that he sent his players to the dressing room after they had lost the score was 33-27. And while they showered and dressed he unloaded some Choice language on the referee. I wanted him to hit the first blow so i cussed him pretty Good Nate recalled. He finally did and then the fun began. Before it was Over it seems like hundreds of people were out there slugging and my boys who had been locked in their dressing room kicked the door Down and came to my Aid. We did a lot of swinging but i Don t think anyone got Hurt badly he added. I will always remember that night As one of the worst i Ever spent As a coach.". . ?. ? ? and there was football too Glenville s Fame came on the basketball court but Rohrbough s football teams were almost As Tough. Some great players wore the Blue and White. There were to recall a few such performers As Stanley Jeranko Shumsie Hines Allen Morford Gordon Eismon Jim Mcmillen bus Mowrey Paul Fulks Harold Porterfield Cliff Clem babe o Dell and such others As Morris Vincent Edwards Keister Tatta Bickel first names of which we have forgotten. Besides the 1937 team Rohrbough also came up with a Fine team in 1930 that lost Only to Wesleyan 20-0, but it had to Settle for a 7-7 tie with Potomac state and a 0-0 draw with the Wavu freshmen. ? ? ? could t Stop Battles the Wesleyan game in 1930 is the subject of a Story that Gordon Eismon a Fine fool al player and now Secretary of the activities commission still likes to Tell. In this losing cause Cliff Battles the great Wesleyan Star could t be stopped. And Rohrbough continually ran up and Down the sidelines pleading for his boys to tackle finally when Allen Morford missed a tackle Nate was still Yelling when Morford picked himself up off the ground. Why did t you tackle him the coach shouted. Damn it coach if you want him tackled tackle him yourself Morford shot Back. After All you scheduled the game we didn.t.". ? ? colourful hard worker West Virginia has never had a coach in High school or College any More colourful than Nate Rohrbough. And no coach was Ever More dedicated to his work than this former Buckhannon High school Star. He was a fierce competitor not Only As an athlete but As a coach As Well. He would Clinch a fist and Start swinging at anyone who tried to take advantage of his teams or had anything disparaging to say about his boys. He asked no quarters and gave none and his athletes loved and admired him then As they do today.
