Game Faces On

These guys have their game faces on, and are playing hard. A great picture. Did the guy without a helmet have it stripped off in play or was this really allowed?

Action shot

This is the earliest action shot I've seen using the technology of the day. About ten years earlier the ball carrier would have been a blur on the plate.

[Not so. See this photo from 1912. - tterrace]

And the crowd went wild.

Anybody know which team is which?

Red Dog

Looks as if the defender has made a nifty move--he "shot the gap" between two offensive linemen and is making a great stop. Or could be the offensive player on his back below the runner has just been run over and knocked on his keester. Either way, great play and great sports shot for its day.

(Gotta love the guy with no helmet.)
