That is the cover of the Thanksgiving Day Courier-Journal sports page from November 26, 1936. That was already the 53rd edition of The Old Rivalry. Manual ended up winning that year 27-0 in front of a crowd of 14,600 at Manual Stadium.

Here's the full page. If anyone can make heads or tails of the first 10 years worth of final scores, let me know...because I sure as hell can't figure it out.

Also...check out those $1 Xervac hair-growing treatments at Levy Bros Barber Shop. My man looks like he's paying $1 to sit in an electrical chair.

1911 Newport Wildcats

Per the pictures, that's the second season they fielded a football team. I'm assuming that first picture was taken at Andrews' Park at 12th and Lowell Streets on Newport's West End. It was the first lighted field in northern Kentucky. The field was owned by the Andrews Steel Company (which later became part of Newport Steel) for their company's club football and baseball teams. Newport High School built and opened Newport Stadium in 1938.

Here's Newport Stadium during and immediately following construction in 1938.

That's Nate Roedig (this one was actually posted earlier in the thread...but no biggie). I believe he's currently on the coaching staff at Campbell County.

I believe Nate is the son of former ('70s era) Cov Cath assistant coach Rick Roedig. Last I'd heard, Nate was with GE Aviation.

1937 undefeated Male Bulldogs season. My Grandfather Bill Riley was running back on team. I took these pics from his scrapbook he made that season.

1975 Covington Catholic - The Thin Thirty.

First year HC Lynn Ray is on the far right. 

One of these players will become the Captain of the 1979 US Naval Academy football team; another will become a HC at two Northern Kentucky high schools.

Do you see anyone you know?

Coach Hornsby looks the same...albeit, his hair's a little more shaggy, and he's got that sweet gunslinger in this picture.

I love those old photos and clippings.   Thanks for posting them.     I like Manual's goat mascot (ram).   Didn't Wally Butt go on to coach Georgia Tech?    Why do all the players look like they are 30 years old?    Is it the photography or the newsprint?   They look like pretty tough customers.

I think some are older. My grandfather would have been 20 in 1937. Definitely some cool pics. Not sure about coach but could be. YW!

The future HC would be Mark Goetz?

Wally Butts left Male to go on to Georgia, not Georgia Tech. He was head coach for the high school/prep teams at two colleges prior to Male. Had undefeated seasons that were awarded "mythical" state championships with all three high school programs he coached....and he did it all three years he was at Male.

1928-1931 Madison A&M University (Georgia)
1932-1934 Georgia Military College
1935-1937 Louisville Male
1938           University of Georgia (Assistant)
1939-1960 University of Georgia (Head Coach)

Nate’s father is not Rick Roedig.  His stepfather is Tony Roedig.  Yes, he is at GE Aviation.  Doing very well, as we all knew he would.

Yes.  Great Coach.  I also see Tim Hobbs and Rick Hornsby on the staff.  I also recognize Kurt Mohr - USMC Ret.  His brother Jared Mohr has been a CCH Baseball assistant for years.

Nate was a player back in the day. His pick-6 at Riverfront Stadium against Massillon Washington was a thing of beauty.

Old Kentucky Home football coaching staff, 1966 football season. This was the first year as a head coach for Joe Jaggers, patriarch of the Jaggers football coaching family.

Not much was expected of the the Wildcats that season, but they finished out 7-2-1, including a win over crosstown rival Bardstown.

Jaggers retired in late 1998 as the all-time coaching wins leader in Kentucky High School football, with a career record of 292-105-3, accrued at Old Kentucky Home, Nelson County, Trigg County, Fort Knox, and North Hardin. He was also 5-1 in state championship games.
