Honors

 

 

Camp Lewis was established in 1917 by citizens of Pierce County who purchased land and donated it to the military to build a base to train soldiers for WWI.  The Soldiers won 5 games, tied Washington State before losing to the Mare Island Marines of California.  A rematch was played in the 1918 Rose Bowl with the Marines again taking the game from the Camp Lewis soldiers, in a game that is said to have "saved the Rose Bowl" from nearly being scrapped during World War I and the financial loses organizers had taken in the years prior.  25,000 fans came out to see the Marines and the Army battle it out and thus saved the bowl game later to become "the Grandaddy of them all".

 

Romney scored the only TD for the soldiers in the Rose Bowl match up and McKay kicked the conversion through.

 

Former Spokane Athletic Club head man, Travanion Cook coached the Camp Lewis Eleven's.
