1917 Football Season
The season opened
with about thirty men out for practice. Mostof these men were subs
or second team men of the year before, and unusually light. It was
not long, however, until a team began to take shape and the first game
of the season was played with the I.O.O. F. Home. We won this game
with a score of 40 to 0.
Our next game was
with Frost, who came over here confident of victory. This game
also went in our favor, 21 to 6.
The Next Friday we
went to Waco, and being so confident of an easy victory, we did not wake
up until the last quarter, when the score was 25 to 0 against us.
During this last quarter, however, we played real football and scored
one touchdown, making the defeat a little better, 25 to 6.
October 19, we went
to Dallas and played Bryan Street High School. We were again
defeated by a score of 7 to 0.
Our worst defeat,
however, was still in store for us. We went to Waxahachie, October
26, and came back with a score of 40 to 0 in their favor.
After two weeks
more of practice we encountered Waxahachie on our home field.
Although we received another defeat, we were consoled by the fact that
we held Waxahachie to 25 points, which was the lowest she was held by
any other team except the one that defeated her.
November 16 we
played Trinity Second Team on the I. O. O. F. field. Until the
last minute the forty seconds the game was ours with a score of 7 to 6.
Then everything went wrong - two forward passes and a line buck carried
them over the goal. We can truly say that this game was lost
because of overconfidence on our part. The final score was 13 to 6
Mexia met us the
next Friday on our home field and suffered the same fate that we
suffered at Waco, with a score of 26 to 6 in our favor.
Thanksgiving Day we
played Ennis. We won this game 6 to 0, and nothing but the muddy
field prevented us from piling up a much larger score.
During this season
we had two games forfeited to us - one by Teague, because their team had
disbanded, and the other by Forrest Avenue High School of Dallas,
because they feared another defeat similar to the one they had received
at Waxahachie. We cancelled one game with Hillsboro on account of
the death of Spyker Decherd, who had come out for the team.
