The 1967 Pine River Football Team, under new coach Ralph Hurley, was the first to taste victory. The Bucks probably doubted their ability to win after four losses to begin the season, especially since they were shut out in each of those games. However, on October 13th the Bucks were able to beat the Gaylord Saint Mary Snowbirds by the score of 20-13. The scoring began when Bob Swanson scored on a end sweep of at least 30 yards in the first period. Swanson then threw a 40 yard TD pass to Rich Frisbie for the Buck’s second score of the night. The Snowbirds managed to pull within one late in the game, but Swanson once again took control and scored on a sneak from 2 yards out to seal the game. The Bucks lost their last 2 games, but they were able to score 12 points on Baldwin and 6 points on Onekema. The final score of the season came when Bob Swanson hit Rich Frisbie for a pass of over 40 yards. The Bucks only finished 1-6, but the ’67 squad showed great improvement on both sides of the ball.
