1924 Yearbook Season Recap

When Coach Kennedy called for football candidates at the beginning of the school year, there was a loyal response from thirty-one patriots – a number that broke the record turnout.  As the days passed, this number decreased, but an average of twenty-four men reported for work regularly. These players had plenty of energy for every game but the contest of the season, the real thriller – that called for every ounce of hard work and spirit and pep was the meeting with Mechanicsburg.  Our team and their backers displayed their real capacity for loyalsupport during the two weeks of preparation before that game.  On Saturday afternoon, November tenth, when the whistle blew on Biddle Field, M’burg anticipated a grand rally, but the CHS warriors held their line and the first half ended with the score of 0-0.  Mechanicsburg made a touchdown in both the third and fourth quarters.  The Carlisle team tried in vain to cross their opponent’s goal,and at the final whistle the score was 14-0.  Nevertheless it was a great game, and clean, and in that respect we won!

This was the last football game under the coaching of Mr. Kennedy who was succeeded by the Assistant Coach, Mr. Snyder.
