Loyola mourns passing of former coach who established "the Loyola single wing" and was steward of Cubs’ first CIF AAAA championship

Loyola High graduate LEW STUECK '53 has passed away.  STUECK was the head coach of his high school alma mater from 1958-1962.  When he took over as head coach he was only 23 years old.  He installed the single wing offense, similar to the one then being run by "Red" Sanders at UCLA, which helped the Cubs win their first CIF Southern Section AAAA championship in 1962.

 

Two of his players, PAUL HORGAN in 1961 and STEVE GRADY in 1962, were named CIF AAAA Players-of-the-Year.  Both were single wing tailbacks.  Grady, who rushed for 2,097 yards and 35 touchdowns as a senior in '62, would follow in his coach's footsteps, taking over the head coaching reins at Loyola in 1976, a position in which he served for 29 seasons, amassing an overall record of 269-77-6, winning two CIF Div. I titles and two runner-up plaques.  Much of the culture and fundamental tenets Grady fostered and taught were learned under Stueck's tutelage.

In 1962 the Cubs went 12-0 and defeated Anaheim, 14-3, in the CIF Southern Section AAAA title game at the Coliseum. Stueck's squad dominated its opponents, outscoring them, 387-88.  Loyola's 12-0 campaign under Stueck was the beginning of a 35-game victory streak that saw the Cubs win the AAAA title in 1963 and make the finals in 1964.

Following the CIF championship campaign in '62 Stueck moved on to UCLA where he served as an assistant coach before becoming an assistant at Wisconsin.  Following his tenure coaching the Badgers Stueck went into the insurance business.  He later worked at La Salle High School and Verbum Dei High School.

Stueck played college football at Washington State, but he will be remembered most for his famed single wing offense that made Loyola a famed powerhouse in the 1960s.

Stueck's overall record at Loyola was 32-14-3.  In his final two seasons as head coach the Cubs were 21-2.

Among Stueck's other All -CIF players were tailback ROB SMITH '59 and lineman RICH DEAKERS '63, both of whom played football at UCLA.  Please keep the Stueck family in your thoughts and prayers.

An All-Serra League DB and NFFCHF Scholar Athlete for the Cubs in 2010 (and CIF Div. II long jump champion), LEE HIGHTOWER ‘11 started at safety for the Cougars in their big win over the Seminoles.  Houston (13-1) was ranked no. 8 in the final AP poll.

Stanford dominated Iowa in a 45-16 victory in the Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual

Two former Cubs started for the Cardinal in their romp over the Hawkeyes.  Loyola 2011 All-State, All-CIF Pac-5 Div., All-Serra League and NFFCHF Scholar Athlete safety KODI WHITFIELD ‘12 started every game this season at safety for Stanford.  He was a key member of the Cardinal defense.  Loyola 2011 All-Serra League kicker and NFFCHF Scholar Athlete CONRAD UKROPINA ’12 was a pivotal part of the Stanford offense all season.  His biggest FG of the campaign was in the final seconds against Notre Dame when he booted a 45-yard game winner.  Against Iowa in the Rose Bowl he converted every extra point and kicked a field goal.  Stanford was ranked number 3 in the final AP poll.  A Los Angeles Times article about Ukropina and his Loyola experience which ran on December 31 is in the following link.

Washington dispatched Southern Mississippi 44-31 in the Zaxby’s Heart of Dallas Bowl

The University of Washington’s Lineman of the Year, COLEMAN SHELTON ’13 started every game for the Huskies.  Shelton was an All-Serra League and NFFCHF Scholar Athlete two-way lineman for the Cubs in 2012.

Five former Loyola players who started in collegiate bowl victories were NFFCHF Scholar Athletes

If there were any question that Loyola combines football competition with excellence in the classroom better than any other school, look no further than the players above, five of whom were National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame Scholar Athletes.   It would have been six had Cameron Walker not been injured in his senior campaign, thus denying him post-season honors which are a prerequisite for NFFCHF consideration  He is a two-time All-Pac-12 All-Academic honoree.
