Our second year of football proved to be a success. Under utmost difficulties, when some teams would have gone under, we seemed to pull through. Accidents and injuries held back our progress and, as a result in every game we had to use a different backfield. The team worked very hard and much credit must be given to them, as well as to Coach Norris, Mr. Kimes, and Mr. Nicol. Every man who played on the squad received a letter this year.

Our first game was played in a downpour at Granite City. It was a tight game since neither team scored until the final minute. Granite used her "fake" pass that beat Western Military-Academy and scored the lone six points.

Troy came here Nov. 10 and a victory was in the mind for us. Plummer received the opening kick and was tackled. That tackle cost him the remainder of the season on crutches. Time and time again we plunged through for gains and twice lost the ball 10 inches from the line. Lofton started a rally in the last quarter with an 8 yard gain; Sid gained 10 yards and Lofton 14 more; Sidwell made 12 yards for the counter of the game. We tried for another touchdown and were eight inches of it when the gun sounded proclaiming our first football victory.

Carrollton took our left overs for a 33-0 defeat. We next went to Wood River without Kinsey and played in a pool of water to our disadvantage. We went to Troy and again it was a tight game. Briggs saved the day in the third quarter with 2 "shirt tail" tackles. In the last quarter, however, they blocked our punt and scored. In Carrollton our patched eleven held them to twenty points. Then came our final game with the Edwardsville squad, since they had not lost a game this year and were conference champions. They opened the game with their second team, with Sid, Lofton, John and Furge all back in our lineup, we started playing evenly but soon began to take advantage. We worked the ball to the thirty-five yard line, thirteen yard line, and then to the four yard, but luck was against us and we did not make it. In the second quarter Edwardsville scored a touchdown, In the third quarter Sidwell caught a punt and ran fifty yards to tie the score. Then their first team entered but because our line tightened they did not do as well as the second squad had done. After they had worked the ball within scoring position "Sid" broke a pass but they blocked our attempt to punt and scored six more points. Led by Kitten, and Bud, we kept Edwardsville "scared stiff". After a series of gains we were three yards of the tying and winning points when the gun spoke our defeat.

Assistant Coach: Mr. Herbert Kimes

Assistant Coach: Mr. W. Howard Nicol


Football Men


Charles Erwin
"Swipe" played center in almost every game. He was an unusually accurate passer and his presence in center stopped the foe more than once. We lose Charles by graduation.


John Gilworth
John was a valuable man for wrecking the opponents plays. He made himself unpopular with his opponents by preventing their backfield from running off their plays. John was out about three weeks with a broken rib. We are sorry to lose John by graduation.


Raymond Lofton (Captain)
"Bud" made a fine captain for our second year. His lengthy gains put the ball in scoring position several times. Although Bud ran a nail through his foot and was out for a few weeks he showed a strong comeback in the final game. It will take a strong man to fill his position next year.


Lyle Ferguson
Although "Ferge" never put on a football suit until last fall, he had a natural tendency to "get" someone and his opponent realized this before the game was over. "Ferge" turned over in his Ford and was out two games, but returned as strong as ever to finish the season., for this is his last year.

Theodore Geirs
A stubborn man who would not step aside for his opponents. "Ted" was right there when it came to "mussing up" line bucks. We lose "Ted" by graduation from our Alma Mater


Frederick Kinsey
Kinsey was on the receiving end of most of the forward passes. On offense, he kept clipping them off until the referee blew his whistle. Our supporters regret that he will not be with us next year.




Immanuel Ayres
Playing his first year of football, Ayres showed himself capable. He was always in the fight and his was a hard position for opponents to get around. Ayres, too, will be back again next fall to do his best.


Edward Bauer
"Barney", playing guard, made up in fighting sprirt what he lacked in weight. He broke through the line time and time again to spoil the plans of the opposition for a gain. "Barney" will be back again next fall to play for the honor of the squad.


Kenneth Sidwell
"Sid" made an excellent running mate for Captain Bud. He was a speedy backfield man and hard tackler, also an open field runner and a marvel at carrying the ball. Sid made our only touchdowns, running over sixty yards for the last one. Sid was out four games with a broken arm. Kenneth too, is among the players that will be graduating at the end of the school year. 




William Plummer
Plummer was a hard man to stop and would have scored many a touchdown had he remained on the team. Injuries in the second game caused him to lay out for the season. Plummer will not be with us next year, which we regret sincerely. 

Harold Catt 
"Kitty" started at end and was shifted to half back. He was ready wherever he was needed. A reliable man will be lost when "Kitty" graduates this year. 

Ray Farmer
Farmer was one of the hardest hitting full backs we had, for he was always there with a hard punch. Farmer will be back again next fall to do his best in football.




Morris Briggs
A very light man but they don't make them any tougher than "Piggie".He proved unlucky for visitors, especially his "shirt tail" tackles. He has two more years with J.T.H.S. football squad.

Herman Goltz
"Doc" played his first year for J.T.H.S. He was a quiet and business-like sort of chap, who broke up passes and did anything that the occasion required. "Doc" has two more years with us.

Francis Murphy
"Pat" played in most of the games and showed that he could punt out of danger when ever he was called upon. Murphy will be a valuable man to the squad next year. 




Kenneth Neely
Short and fat but all there, Neely could show his worth. Opposing men gained little ground when working against him. He too, leaves J.T.H.S. this year.

Francis Worthey
A worthey man was Frank. His defense was like that of a stone wall and we trust he will perform for us next year.

Captain: Singleton Greene

This was Jerseyville's first year of football, since 1909. Although they didn't make a brilliant showing, they must be given much credit. It takes a year to learn football rules and the fundamental principles of the game. Coach Norris worked faithfully every day at teaching football to those who wished to learn the game. He deserves much credit on the showing of our football team. Mr. Bayless and Mr. Kimes also came out in suit at different times to help out. They got crippled up every now and then, but they didn't mind this because they wanted to see a football team in Jerseyville. Coach Norris has been trying to get a football team here ever since he started coaching in Jerseyville and he has now accomplished it.

Football Men


JEROME ADERTON:
 "Bud" was the lucky man of the season because he made our only touchdown. Bud was fast and took advantage of an opening when he saw one. He graduates this year and will make another opening to fill.

LORRING CARR: 
Carr was laid up a good deal with a bad leg that he received in practice, but he got to play enough to get a letter. This is Carr's last year.

SINGLETON GREENE:
 "Sing" filled this position without any trouble and played it fine. "Sing" made a good captain, because he didn"t lose his head in tight places. This is Sing's last year and it will be a big hole to fill up in the line.

RAYMOND LOFTON: 
"Bud" got his ankle hurt at the first of the season and was put on the injured list for awhile. He played end at starting of the season, but Coach changed him to tackle. Bud will be back next year and has been elected captain.



FORREST COCKRELL:
 Forrest filled the position fine for first year and it is a hard position to play. His strong point was breaking through the opponent's line and getting the jump on the team. We lose him by graduation.

 THEODORE GIERS: 
Giers made a good guard for his first year and ought to be better next year. He and Sing made a heavy pair of guards. He has another year and should improve.


JOHN GILWORTH:
 John made a good tackle because football is his game and he proved that it was. He played in most of the games and did well. He has another year.


KENNETH SIDWELL:
 "Kitten" was chosen as quarterback and did very well. He did most of the forward passing and was good for the first year. "Kitten" will be with us again



JAMES BERRY:
 Berry played both tackle and in the back field, but tackle mostly. He did some good playing this year. Berry has two more years.

ROBERT FERRIS: 
"Goat" played tackle most of the time and sometimes guard. He would manage to get through the line regardless of what opponents would do. "Goat" will be back next year and will be made a good player for our team.

CURTIS WARREN:
 "Curty" made a good fullback and did some good playing this year. He has two more years and ought to make a real football player.

HARVEY WOODS:
 "Ripper" did well playing his first season of football. He could go around ends like lightning and go through the line between some one's legs if there was no other opening. He has two more years

1924 Season in Review
(Click on articles to enlarge)

 

Game 1

 


The first game of the season was with White Hall on Friday morning, October 3, 1924. This was the first game that any of our team had ever played and therefore were shaky at the knees. This proved to be a closer game than any one thought it would be. Our team played well for the first time and showed promises of improvement. The final score was J.T.H.S., 0; W.H.S., 18. Not so bad for the first time?

Game 2




Edwardsville Intelligencer
October 15, 1924

The next game was with Edwardsville on Friday afternoon, October 10, 1924. Edwardsville had an experienced team, because most of the players had played together for two or three years. Our team was somewhat tired from the ride, but they played their best and showed improvement over the first game. The final score was J.T.H.S., 0; E.H.S., 27.


Game 3

The third game of the season was with Carrollton Alumni on October 13. This was getting out of our class, but games were hard to get so we played with whomever we could match a game. Everyone expected the game to be very much one-sided on the fact that Carrollton had three and four-year letter men on their team. Some of them were from the Carrollton High School and the others were Alumni. Our team showed great improvement and held the score rather low for this kind of team. They thought we had a good team for first year. The final score was J.T.H.S., 0; Carrollton Alumni, 25.

Game 4

The next game was with Carrollton High School on Thursday afternoon, October 16, 1924. Carrollton hadn't been defeated so far and wasn't expecting to meet defeat here. They were all experienced men and knew the tricks of football. They had one player on the team, when he got the ball and got away it was all off because you couldn't catch him. We got the worst beating of the season in this game. The final score was J.T.H.S., 0; C.H.S., 52.


Game 5

The Fifth game of the season was with Carrollton High School on Friday afternoon, October 31. The team was out for revenge, that is to hold Carrollton to a lower score and they did. Our team displayed some good football in this game and the result was that Carrollton was held down. This showed the team had improved a great deal. The final score was J.T.H.S., 0; C.H.S., 13. Not so bad.

Game 6

 

Then came the final game of the season with Troy on Saturday, November 16, and the climax of Jerseyville's football team for 1924. The team went to Troy in cars and all arrived safe and sound. Up to now you could not have said any one played better than the other, and in this game no one played better than the other., but all of them played better than before. The game started in a whirl and we had just got possession of the ball and soon started down the field to our line with the fellow carrying the ball having good interference. Before Troy was aware what was going on, we were about ready to cross their goal line. They tried to resist but on the next play Jerome Aderton carried the ball across for a touchdown, which was our first touchdown and the first score of the season, The quarter ended, J.T.H.S., 6; Troy, 0. The next quarter was played more evenly till toward the end of the half when our warriors started down the field again. The whistle blew just before the next play and we were on Troy's two or three yard line. The score was J.T.H.S., 6; Troy, 0.

The next half was more exciting because both teams were fighting hard. The third quarter ended with the same score as the half.

The fourth quarter was the most exciting of all because Troy had gotten new life. They started for our goal and our team stopped them on about the five yard line and we got the possession of the ball. Sing backed up to punt out of danger, but the excitement was so high and the center made a bad pass and Sing fumbled the ball, but fell on it, giving them a safety which counted three points. The score was now J.T.H.S., 6; Troy, 3. The ball went out to twenty yard line and they had possession of the ball and started another drive. Our team now could see victory and weren't going to be deprived of it in first or last quarter. Troy got on our ten yard line and just about the time he thought he had succeeded he was catapaulted back about ten feet. Sing had gotten revenge for the safety they made of him and put a stop to Troy's hopes of making a touchdown. They tried again but in vain for the game soon ended. The final score was; J.T.H.S., 6, Troy, 2. Greene, Aderton, Carr, Sidwell and some more played their best football of the season, so we had reached our goal.
