Searcy High football 1919 Arkansas

What a good looking crew!  These young men don't look as uniformed as the football players of today do but they do show personality better.  They even have some names on their shirts.  And they are named on the back of this old picture.

"Front row, left to right are Lee Lason, Joe Dale, Jim Paul Watson, Ray Mason, Boogie (Fletcher) Holleman, and Oris Henry.

Middle Row, Bill Barton, M. P. Jones, Joe Bill  Patterson, Morgan Thomas and Frank Burkett.

Back Row, Jim Findley, Ernerst Butler, Mr. Woodard (Supt.), Lester Mason, J. L. Taylor (Prin.) and Raymond Guthrie. 

Seated as played about 1919."

Great picture of the past, isn't it?

I love the picture and, especially, the helmets.

At least two of the boys went on to be important people in Searcy's history. M.P. Jones was publisher of the Searcy Daily Citizen and Lester Mason was Superintendent of Schools.

Harold Gene, thanks for that information.  Is Mr. Mason the one who died in a car wreck along with his wife?
