Season Review

Coach Don Roberts led the Golden Gusties to a winning season in 1964. Along with a tie for third in the conference, the Gusties had three men selected for all-conference honors-Dick Rohloff, John Rudolph, and Rog Hanson.

Senior Co-Captains Ron Erickson and Rog Hanson retire along with Dick Lofgren and Dick Rohloff after fours years of service for Don Roberts.

Gustavus split the two non-conference openers taking Augustana, S.D., 20-0 and falling before the always tough Youngstown, Ohio club 26-7.

Starting guards, junior John Rudolph and senior Dick Rohloff, and sophomore tackles Tom Harmon and Gary Wenschlag joined junior ends Dennis Hendrickson and Dick Hegener to form the charging defensive wall. The defensive backfield included quarterback Ron Erickson, wingback Denny Aguiar, veteran Dick Lofgren and Chuck Linnerooth.

The Gustavus bench was beginning to seat the depth that a championship team depends on, evidenced by the freshman team walloping Mankato State 52-0 and St. Olaf 34-0.

Since taking over the reins from Hollingsworth, Roberts’ teams have compiled a 13-22 record in four seasons. Each year the team has improved. In ‘65, with such a strong sophomore group and the loss of only 4 senior starters, Gustavus looked to once again be a contender for the crown.
