"Century Ago:  Rose Bowl Bound"

Camp Lewis 91st vs Mare Island



100 years ago, with the club and collegiate teams losing their players to war mobilization, the Military teams took center stage, and Camp Lewis, now Joint Base Lewis McChord, sent a contingent of soldiers to Pasadena to play in the Rose Bowl on January 1, 1918.  Ernest Romney (1917 Player of the Year) and Douglas McKay led the charge.
Congratulations to all those added to the all-time records list!

Did You Know?

In the 1930's, the forward pass was just gaining popularity, but the main name of the game was straight "line bucks" and scrums at the line of scrimmage.  Therefore, many games ended in 0-0 ties, especially on muddy fields.  A "California" rule was adopted for use in some of these games where a clear winner had to be declared.  This rule was for the teams to take 5 alternating plays and the yardage gained accounted for, right down to the foot.  After those 5 plays, the team gaining the most yardage was declared the winner.  Officials had to be "on the ball" to make sure no shenanigans occured in between plays which might swing the total by a few inches one way or the other.  In these days, the winner may be taking 60% of the gate, and with attendence being upwards of 2000 fans, 20% was a big deal.  Not to mention the side bets and "trophies" obtained by the winners.
