The football season of 1913, the first in the recent history of St. joseph
High School, while not a continual succession of victories was, nevertheless. a
cause for pride and satisfaction to the followers of high school athletics. Even
from the standpoint of losses and victories, however, the season was not entirely
disastrous, the team winning exactly one-half of its games. Cf the eight games
played, the last four were victories.
When it was first proposed to reestablish the game, ominous advice was
prevalent on every hand, the general tenor of which was distrust in the success
of the venture. Witli characteristic school spirit, the student body rallied to its
support, and within a week the team was appearing regularly on Edgewater
field learning the rudiments of the game. Through the loyalty of individual
citizens and business men, the team was provided with an excellent outfit of suits.
which insured effective practice from the start.
All sorts of discouraging circumstances were encountered at the start.
though many had been foreseen and shrewdly provided by Coach XVhitehead.
For instance, much criticism was indulged because the management had seen
fit to oppose our young warriors with the best high school teams available.
Before the season had progressed far, however, the wisdom of such a course
had become evident, and was reliected in the wonderful development before the
end of the season of a team which resembled a bunch of well-seasoned veterans
to take the place of the inexperienced youngsters of the beginning of the sason.
Too much cannot be said in praise of Coach Wfhitehead for our showing in the
first year of football. In spite of the loss of our games at the first of the season.
football was a paying investment financially. Lineup: i ,
