Football Season of 1938
When football practlce opened m September for the season of 1938 lt dawned upon Redblrd p1gsk1n
followers that Coach jackson and h1s assxstant Henry Holt had a b1g task 1n moldlng a formldable squad
out of the materlal at hand The reason eleven lettermen of the prex 1ous season were gone and new men
had to be developed The task was made somewhat eas1er by the fact that four lettermen of the prexlous
season were on hand They were Tackwell Schwartz Matthey and Kuhn The boys who came th ough
and earned posltlons were mamly reserves of the preced1ng season In th1s group we found Wayne Vahle
Dxaz Lewls Drake Schreiber Lazar Redmond Aulabaugh Osborne McCask1ll Patterson Many
other boys got 1nto the l1ne up durmg the season but the precedlng hst was the group of old dependables
The fxrst game of the season was played under the hghts on our held on the even1ng of September
30 Our opponents came from Auburn a relatlvely small high school from the Sprlngfield area They
had a team of ten veterans and one of these named Yasmskl hopped Jumped and leaped to three touch
downs whlch sunk us 20 0 Our lnexperlenced team looked pretty green and many predlcted a dxsastrous
season for our Redbxrds
Edwardsvllle Tlgers with claws all sharpened rolled mto town mn tlme for a game October 7 The
dope sheet called for a Tlger vlctory due to one Txger poxson man Edgar Henke The brute drd manage
to snag a pass close to the goal llne and fall over for the touchdown that brought the Tlgers a 6 6 dead
lock for the even1ng Vahle had scored a touchdown for the Redblrds early 1n the second quarter Lack
of experlence cost us thxs game and no team sllpped over any touchdown passes s1m1lar to th1s one durmg
the remamder of the season Thms game showed what a whale of a dxlference one week s pract1ce had done
Redbxrd 1nvas1on of forelgn terrxtory occurred October 14 at Wood Rlver The Oxlers were enJoy1ng
a h0mCCOmlng They had tled Gramte C1ty and defeated Coll1nsv1lle A declded under dog the
Redb1rds dug m and when nt was all over the Ollers had been wrecked 1 homecomxng had been rulned as
far as Wood Rlver was concerned and the jackson men agun threatened to do conference damage before
the season was to end Score 200
East Sxde s Flyers flew 1nto Alton on October 21 and almost won a football game Alton fumbled
on the 23 yard strlpe on our first play and East S1de recovered and were never stopped unt1l a touchdown
resulted A llttle later East Sxde punted but Kuhn blocked lt and as lt rolled goalward a race by Tackwell
and D1az was won by Chuck and when 2 yards from the goal l1ne he plcked up the ball and stepped 1nto
the end zone for 6 pomts Kuhn place klcked the w1nn1ng poxnt and ID the thlrd quarter Redmond scored
to make the margm comfortable Score 13 6
Bellevllle-Conference Champ1ons for 1938 was the scene of a Redblrd mv asxon on October 28
The Maroons had a most heavy squad for a high school team they played good football they got all
the breaks of the game and they steamrollered us 1nto a 326 submlsslon Penxltles agaxnst Redb1rds
at mopportune tmmes helped score two Bellevxlle touchdowns The Redblrds scored as result of 1 blocked
Coll1nsv1lle dropped mto Alton on Thursday November 3 and wlth less than two mmutes left to
play was leadmg 7 6 Schwartz recexved an almost lmpossxble pass but was downed 10 yards short of the
goal Three cracks at the Kahok defense netted the wmmng touchdown ln the most thrlllxng game of the
conference season Score 12 7
The Redbxrds went to Vemce and stopped M1dlSOD nn the1r own den on Thur day November 10
The final count read 280 Coach jackson used every player who made the trlp at sometlme durmg the
Gramte Cxty upset the Redblrds there on Frlday Noxember 18 It was late 1n the fourth quarter
when Granlte scored but one touchdown was plenty for them Alton suffered some by fumbles but
Lazar was rushed on passes by Gramte unt1l we falled to get to paydlrt Late 1n the second quarter the
Redbmrds were on the 1 yard lme after a 44 yard march Then the whlstle man put an off sxde on us and
Gramte succeeded ln stoppmg our touchdown march Score 0 6
