First Football Game Played Here Friday

September 24, 1936

Lincolnton High plays its first football game on the season here Friday afternoon when Warrenton invades May Field. Tomorrow’s game will be the initial game for both teams.

Warrenton will be a fast and husky bunch to meet Coach Jones’ Red Devils and the game should be interesting from start to finish.

The Lincolnton line-up will probably be as follows:

Ends–Carl Ivey and Hayes Wansley; Tackles–Thomas Hogan and Homer Moss; Guards–James Harnesberger and Bussey Clary; Center–Thomas Mims; Quarterback–James Smalley; Halfbacks–J. C. McLean, Neal and Shelwyn Wansley; Fullback–Pete Cunningham.

The team deserves the support of every local football fan and a large crowd should witness the game here tomorrow.
