As Tri City
rolled to a 77-7 victory over Arlington on
their way to a 6-0 record, Harry Peoples
etched his name in the record books breaking
an 11-year old record held by John Stewart,
another dual threat QB who could use his
legs as well as arm. Accounting for 9
total touchdowns, Peoples carried 4 times
for 91 yards and 3 scores while going 17/24
for 321 yards and 6 TDs.
Congratulations to Peoples and the Rage.
think you are an "ironman" in 2018?
While Wheeling, West Virginia was
building it's "Ironmen" program, the
Seattle Cavaliers had already built a
reputation to rival that.
of 1963 the Cavaliers embarked on a
back-to-back-to-back football weekend that
would be met with raised eyebrows today.
On Friday night (Nov 9th) the Cavaliers
squared off with a squad from Whidbey
Island taking that game 33-0. The
next afternoon, the Olympic College
Rangers were on the docket, and a slow
start led to an 18-14 defeat. Still
not finished, the Cavaliers then traveled
to the Washington State Reformatory to
take on the Monroe Tigers where they
finished the weekend with a 22-6 victory.
Three football games in less than 72
hours with a fairly small roster of 40
players. Needless to say, everyone
got to play, the question is, how many
made it to work on Monday? (Being
1963, we are guessing everyone who had a
job and wished to keep it!)
Cavaliers would set a new standard a
decade later when they would "double
dip", playing two games on the same day in

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.
Adam Kruse Behind the Back
QB's Focus of Playoffs
WWFA wrapped up it's 2018 regular season and
now await the playoff alignments. Four
quarterbacks will be the focus of the
playoffs as undefeated Wenatchee leans on
Adam Kruse, Tri City sports the one-man show
in Harry Peoples, and Russ Schneider of
Portland is always dangerous in the pocket.
Dark horse leaders from the Nighthawks and
Mayhem could emerge during the playoffs as
Former Auburn Mayor was once Semi
Pro quarterback with Whidbey Islanders.
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.

Career Passing Yards
John Kennedy is the
recognized King of the Semi
books after 22 seasons with the
Scranton Eagles. Schneider
is on pace to shatter Kennedy's
records in half the time.
