The above photo is of the 1924 Dawson High Football Champs, and also the back side of the photo which has the names listed in my father's handwriting.  My father is #8, Grady Pitts, the one with the blob of ink on his face!  I'm not sure who did the numbering on the photo; maybe he did. I think you'll find the "position" of #16 rather amusing.  #17, Ted Bumpers, was my father's cousin.
