Located today on internet-Xavier football history
« on: February 26, 2020, 07:48:12 AM »
Getting new furnace today and browsing internet always checking for anything regarding Xavier football and came across the following link.

My uncle, Joe King, played football for Xavier in the early 1920's and he's in the Legion of Honor. Amazing how few players X had early on (ie., club football) but something big grew...hope springs eternal!

A lot of the players back then played both sides of the ball, so you didn’t need 75+ like today’s D1 schools. They don’t need them today either, but that doesn’t stop them!

How true, Bruce. Doubt that the positions were all that skilled. Not to diminish the great players who played in those days but some games had to be really brutal!
