1954 brought another undefeated season to Rosecrans. Although there was one loss to Columbus Holy Rosary, the Ohio State High School Football association declared Holy Rosary in violation of its rules due to a player who was ineligible. And so the Battling Bishops chalked up another undefeated season.

One of the characteristics of the 1954 team was its toughness. Not only did we handily outscore most oponents, but we out-penalized them as well. During this season the team was assessed 425 yards in penalties while opposition teams were assessed only 105.

The penalties against the team also held down the scores we could have achieved. For example, in the first game of the 1954 season against West Lafayette, three of Bub Smith's touchdown runs were nullified because of penalties called against the team.
