THE GARNET AND GRAY 9 SCHOOL EVENTS FOOTBALL 1922 We started the football season this year with a new coach whose methods were unknown to the players, about forty fellows who were built with fight in their hearts but otherwise unqualified, and only three gruelling battles from the cup. Mr. Clyde Russell looked us over and the light was on. The group worked hard at Ridgefield every afternoon, coach and men pulling together in a manner which was the envy of more than one high school coach in the State. We started the season by rolling up a Z0 to 6 score against Edison Drafting School, a big bunch of huskies from Schenectady. Nine games have been played since that day, a total that balanced in a 7 to 3 scale, with 208 points scored by the champions and 99 for opponents. The annual game with our arch-rival, the Albany Academy, was the only shutout of the season, the tally being 26 to O. The Alumni game was an occasion waited for and to be remembered by all who saw it. It was anybody's game throughout the first half, but lack of training began to tell and our boys stepped out in front. For more reasons than one that game will be remembered. Every time the lines crashed a few more reasons developed. The following Saturday we played in Gloversville. The circumstances were investigated by the A. A. U. officials, who decided not to count that score since the team Gloversville put on the field was not representative of the High School. This was certainly a crisis, it being conceded by the followers of the league that the winner of the Gloversville-Albany game would be champions. We played the game over at Union College and defeated them to the tune of '20 to 13 and drenched a confident bunch of rooters with gloom. In the interim between the two Gloversville games we beat Troy High at Troy on a rock-bottom field. This game was the first in which our men approached their characteristic form. No line charge was like ours. Albany had a brand of tackling all its own-and the coordination between backfield and line was commented upon by several college coaches. We gave the Union Frosh the toughest gridiron battle of their schedule, according to their Captain and Coach, holding them to a 13 to 6 win. The Troy Conference Academy defeated our lineup at Poultney, Vt. The trip was an experience worth having, but the team was in no condition to play the game they did after covering the eighty-five miles. NVe certainly showed that school what we're made of when in the third period the second squad made a track meet out of it and ploughed that bunch of ex-high-school stars up the field for a touch-down, and down again to lose the ball on the one yard line and then tackle the kicker behind his own goal line which made our 9 points to stand against 26. Our defeat of Gloversville at Alexander Field gave us the hard won
