THE ORIOLE 2 FOOTBALL SEASON 1924 Last season ended the high school career of some of Pulaski’s most brilliant football products, such men as Allison, Duncan. Sheppard, Cox, Kirkner, Miller, and Patteson. While Pulaski did not score as many points as in some former seasons, she met and defeated the strongest teams in this section of the State. Pulaski opened the season by defeating the Galax High team by the score of 2 to 0. Next she met the strong Christiansburg team who played to the tune 0 to 0. Coach Hall then carried a rather crippled team to Bristol where Pulaski took the count from this strong aggregation 19 to 0. Pulaski then journeyed to Blueheld to meet Beaver High where she struck her stride, easily taking her enemy into camp 34 to 12. After this game Pulaski never had her goal line crossed and never was forced to play a defensive game, on the other hand always taking the offensive from the first whistle. The fifth game was taken from Wytheville, 19 to 0, in easy fashion as indicated by Wytheville only making two first downs in the entire game. The sixth game proved to be a little less than a track meet with Radford which resulted a score of 76 to 0. Next came the strong Blacks- burg aggregation bent on taking the sting out of the “good going” Yellow Jackets, but where could there a team be found who could take the measure of such a smooth running machine! This game was advertised as being the hardest game of the sea- son, as the glory of the Blacksburg Warriors was heralded throughout Southwest Virginia. Yet they were let down as perhaps any High School team in the State would have been, to the tune of 26 to 0, with three first downs as their share of the bacon. The last game of the season was played with Emory and Henry Junior Varsity in a veritable sea of mud. The hnal score was 13 to 0 with Pulaski again wagging off with the long end of the numerals. Thus the team of ’23 ended its season with a record that will prove an inspiration to teams in succeeding years, and the work of such men as Allison, Patteson, and Duncan in the backfield, and Sheppard, Cox and Miller in the line, will long be remember- ed by lovers of the gridiron sport. To Coach Allen F. Hall and his brother, King, goes the honor of producing a team with a brilliant record — a team which did a credit to itself, an honor to its Alma Mater and one of which any high school might justly be proud.
