Wonder what the Jeff - Logansport score was if they played that year?

These are all just cool scores, especially given the current state of the teams.  I love that Notre Dame / Culver game.  Not so much the score, but the idea of high schoolers getting an opportunity to play against Notre Dame.

That might be why South Bend had the best teams 100 years ago, because they played against Notre Dame.  October 21, 1921- South Bend 79 Lafayette Jeff 0.  That game was played right before the Notre Dame/Nebraska game.  Logansport did not play Jeff in 1921.  Logansport did beat Rensselaer 22-15 on October 15, 1921.  Rensselaer beat Jeff 60-6 on October 1, 1921

 Knute Rockne developed a pretty good relationship with the area high schools.  Mishawaka and South Bend played their annual rivalry game in Notre Dame Stadium  from 1925 through 1946.  In the heyday, crowds of 30,000 attended.

As for the '21 Notre Dame freshman team... consider this.  The backfield contained the names of Harry Stuhldreher, Don Miller, Jim Crowley, and Elmer Layden.  How cool is that?  Those names should be familiar to ND fans.

Here's a little clip from the freshmen section or "Green Team" from the 1921 Notre Dame Football Review:

Very cool!

I don’t think I have all those yet but I’ll work to get them added!

Those northern Indiana teams were extremely strong back in the day. That area dominated the state until the 1950s and 1960s when central Indiana started to take over. 

Thanks for sharing!

Thank you for everything you have done!  Years ago I started to do what you have done, but I never had the time and I couldn't get everything from my phone like you can today.  I thought they had a pinned topic for high school football history, but couldn't find it.  It is amazing that you have all the scores back to 1947.  I don't know what you need to complete everything, but I could post what I have.  I know you have all of southern Indiana all the way back.  Thank you again for everything you have done!

Were you at these games or are you finding old school newspapers or an old Jeff yearbook?  Looks like a first-hand account.  If so, you and @kingtutneed to get together and write a book.

Ha ha! Yes! I could never do what Rudy has done.  This is some info that he might not have.  I would like everyone to post any Indiana high school football history they might have.

No problem.  I bunched the two sentences together and should have separated them.

Go Bombers!!  We are in our 125th year of football and 11th in most wins in state.   Good find on old scores, really awesome to see some old stuff.  We had a gentleman bring out a freshman kid this year who wanted to play and just got into town ( few days after school started). He was the Punter on his undefeated RCHS 1954 squad.   He then went on to talk about striking the ball with your foot with the air hole on outside for the spiral you looking for, got it from someone at the Bears Training camp ( Camped in Rensselaer from 1944 to 1974)

Sheridan goes for win #700 Friday night at Clinton Prairie.  I have a book of Sheridan football history and I'll share some historical info with you.  I believe they used to play Wabash College back at the turn of the 20th Century.

0 South Bend Washington 27

West Lafayette gave up 9 points in 8 games and beat Lafayette Jeff twice 14-0.  This shows how good South Bend Washington was that year.  South Bend and Gary had the best teams in the state during the 1940's, and now look at them.
