Amid much ballyhoo and with great faith in their team, the City of
Homes turned out 12.000 strong for the White Plains game. Unlike the last
two years, the locals were not so confident they could win over the Tigers.
and thus the closest game of the season ensued.
White Plains won, 14-7, but it received more than one scare during the
fray. Although Mount Vernon went into their game in a very weakened con-
dition, White Plains deserved the victory. During the week preceding the
Mamaroneck game, reports emanating from Mamaroneck stated Mount Vernon
should have pity on the light Clam Digger squad. Conferences between
school officials were held, so Coach Coffin used a few first team men and the
score was only Zl-2. Yonkers was taken in stride 32-0, with very few per-
sons witnessing the game due to the fact that White Plains was meeting New
The final game of the season with New Rochelle was called off due to
a cloudburst that left Howard Field looking like Wilson Pool, so the tradi-
tional contest was played a week later with 15,000 persons jamming every
nook and corner of Howard Eield. The largest crowd ever to witness a gridiron
contest in Mount Vernon saw New Rochelle down Mount Vernon 12-0, in
a hard fought game.
Dealing in personalities, Mount Vernon displayed in the Metropolitan
district two outstanding stars in Eddie Williams, halfback, and Ernest Jansen.
tackle. These two players not only were named on the official all-county team.
as was Horace Weldon, guard, but were named on Metropolitan district squads
picked by New York City sports writers. Williams shone in the lirst three
games when he scored touchdowns on the first plays of each fray. A knee
injury hampered his progress in the latter part of the season. and he was
missed most notably in the White Plains game. Getting into the latter part
of the game, Williams' added the power but it was too late.
The General Organization voted the team silver foot balls, a theatre party
in New York. and a banquet for the fine season that was enjoyed.

With a record of seven wins and two losses the A. B, Davis High
School football team completed creditably one of the stiffest schedules in Metro-
politan gridiron circles during the '32 season. Opening against Alexander
Hamilton, a team from Brooklyn, the Maroon ran roughshod over the heavier
visitors to ring out a Z6-O victory. much to the delight of the largest crowd
ever to witness the Hrst game of the season at Howard Field.
Following its opening game breather. the Steamrollers met two of the
strongest teams in their states. The week following the Hamilton game, St.
Peter's Prep of Jersey City came to Mount Vernon and were defeated by the
locals 20-0. St. Peter's Went on to down every other team it met, and won the
championship of its city from Dickinson High School.
The other team outside of New York State that the Mount Vernon squad
combatted was the Bridgeport Central High School. Meeting at the Nutmeg
Staters' home field, the Maroon found that they were playing a big, good
team, but by getting the jump in the nrst few minutes of play managed to
beat the Nutmegers 26-6.
Concordia Prep of Bronxville played hosts to Mount Vernon, and the
Maroon continued in the undefeated column by trouncing the Ministers 26-0,
making it four in a row for Mount Vernon. Port Chester visited Howard
Field. in the next game, and gave the Hilltoppers quite a scare by holding them
to 7-6 in the Hrst quarter. Mount Vernon came back strong though and came
in ahead 34-6, to tie with White Plains and New Rochelle for the W. l. A. A.
