Some of these schools may already have had a 100-year celebration, but here are the ones that we have with first football scores in our files that are from 1920 season.
The Greyhounds were at their best when Larry Welsh was coaching them between 1979 and 1996, including 14-0 seasons in 1982 and 1995.
There was a fun tweet just this week celebrating the Hunters’ 100 years. We have them at 10-1-1 in 1968 and 11-0-1 in 1981. They won the CIF L.A. City Section D2 title last season, then lost to South (Torrance) in SoCal D6AA regionals.
The school was known as the Redskins until just a few years ago. Their first winning season we have was 7-1-1 in 1926.
The Cardinals were State Team of the Year for their division in 1988. They also were unbeaten three years earlier.
Grossmont (La Mesa)
We have the team getting to 7-1 in 1925 with an unbeaten season in 1927 (8-0-3). The Foothillers also were 9-0 in back-to-back seasons (1933, 1934).
We don’t see that Canoga Park and Huntington Park are scheduled to play in upcoming 2021 winter season, but that’s a game that should be played. The Spartans won an L.A. City Section title in 2017, then lost to Vincent Memorial of Calexico in CIF D6-A SoCal regional final.
This school has really grown in the last 10 to 15 years. The school community was rocked just a few weeks ago when two senior girls, Kaya Durazo and Ayana Guardado, were killed in a car accident in Tracy along with former Edison of Stockton standout Trey Breckenridge and former McNair player Donald Edwards.
Alma mater of New England Patriots LB Tedy Bruschi and many others had its 100-year anniversary during 2019-20 school year. We don’t have any scores for the Tigers for 1919, but have them from 1920.
The Wildcats are known for their unique and beautiful Dunlavy Stadium. They have trended toward being a smaller school in recent years due to declining enrollments.
Note: We have just one score well before 1920 for Willows, but that’s the only one and it could be a mistake. The Honkers don’t show up in the files more consistently until 1920 and were 9-0-1 by 1922.
