This issue of Sport Story Magazine is from 1936. As you can tell from the Earle Bergey-illustrated cover, football used to look much different. I don’t know if those leather hats provided much protection.
Lt. Col. Gar Davidson, who wrote the featured story “How the Army Plays Football” was the coach of West Point’s football team. He coached from 1933 to 1937 and compiled a 35-11-1 record. Later, from 1956 to 1960, he served as the Superintendent of the United States Military Academy.
