Another fine football team shot, probably from Hood River High School circa 1930s. Check out the game face on some of those players. Someone will have to dig up their names and record from some old yearbooks.

These older photos always amaze me because of the protection devices or in most cases the lack of them. These guys were rough and tough guys, a lot of them having worked hard all summer on the various farms in the valley.
My guess is this would have been practice, due to the various outfits.
I vaguely recall late in the 1940's going with my Dad, an avid football follower to some of those games.
Buzz, did you ever go to school and play ball with John Chipley? His father was a good friend of my Dad's and here just a few years ago I ran into his sister and we had a nice visit.

Yes this is from the old Hood River High School ... I remember that field from going to a lot of the football games there while I was growing up. Brother played in the 1964 championship game against Vale. That was a mud hole that day cause we had to roll off about 4 inches of snow from the field the morning of the game.

Charlott, John Chipley was a senior when I was a freshman. Attended a class of '56 luncheon a few years back and visited with him. By the end of my freshman season I played right end on the defense practice team against the varsity offense. John was a big kid-played tackle-and left me battered and bruised many a day. But all in fun and John was a nice guy.

Do you think Bob Dethman could be in this photo?
