99 Years ago in Massillon Tiger Football History
CAPTAIN: 1915 - Paul Houriet
In 1915 Massillon Tiger football was still in its infancy, but was nothing short of amazingly dominant. In 1915 the Massillon Tigers surrendered only 7 points during the season and those 7 points were enough to give the Tigers their only loss of the season. Head Coach John Snavely led the Massillon Tigers to an 8-1 season.
Massillon's only loss in 1915 came at the hands of Canton Central. Here is an excerpt from the story of the game...
"Shorn of its visions of champion hip honors stands the orange and black clad eleven of
Massillon high school today. For Saturday Canton – the local school's arch foe – in the most amazing and unexpected turn of events ever witnessed in a gridiron struggle, defeated the prize aggregation of Massillon high 7 to 6, in the annual grid fracas on the driving park field. It was Massillon's first defeat.
The deciding play of the game which meant victory for the determined red and black warriors from the east end city came with such abrupt suddenness that it fairly took the breath away from the some odd 3,000 fans who witnessed the season's classic.
