CROTON FOOTBALL MEMORIES: THE 1940’s
courtesy of THE CROTON HISTORICAL SOCIETY
So there we were at the historical society--doing some unrelated to football research on the village--when suddenly the conversation turns to last Friday’s game at Hen Hud—and bam, it hits us. Croton football, which we LOVE, isn’t just about NOW; it’s about THEN too. And all the guys whose love of the game has encouraged the generations that followed after. Look what a quick perusal through the Historical Society’s excellent sports files turned up:
- In 1945, the CHHS Varsity Football Squad had quite the impressive line-up. Click on the photo to see them all.
-And in November 1947, the headline read: CROTON HARMON HIGH SCHOOL’S 1947 UNDEFEATED FOOTBALL TEAM. See more here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/22283683@N07/6167354281/in/photostream
