November 25: Open.
TRAINING STARTED BY TROJAN SQUAD
Madison Journal September 12, 1930
The Tallulah High Trojans were back in training this week after the vacation months. About fifteen boys have reported each day for practice. The number was limited because the squad does not have enough football suits on hand at the present.
Coach "Ma" Phillips is teaching the boys a different type of football playing from what they have been playing. He attended a three day coaching school under H. E. Walden at the Louisiana College before returning here last week.
The new style of playing is that of "Pop" Warner as well as some important plays of Knute Rockne of Notre Dame. The coach says that the football that he is teaching is easy to learn and is a type that affords plenty of action.
"The team shows up fine and there are plenty of prospects," Phillips said this week.
One man from the backfield and one from the line is all the squad lost from last year's players.
Clements, a guard from the Crowville team of 1929, is out with the Trojans this season. In general, the team is heavier this year than it has been.
The backfield men will no doubt be left to Jim Harris, Otis Edgerton, Cy Wixson and Hopper.
A game has been scheduled with Ferriday on September 26. This contest will mark the beginning of the season for the local team.
"TROJANS" PREPARE FOR ST. ALOYSIUS
Madison Journal September 3, 1930
With a 12-0 defeat, administered to them last week at the hands of the Ferriday "Wildcats" (no write-up of this game can be found) as an opening game staring them in the face, the Tallulah "Trojans" ran through a brief but determined workout yesterday afternoon in preparation for the St. Aloysius College eleven, of Vicksburg, who clash with the locals this afternoon on the local grid.
Coach M. A. "Ma" Phillips, erstwhile Louisiana College athlete, of the home team has gone about this week's work in attempt to iron out weaknesses discovered in the Ferriday game.
S. A. C. NOSES OUT "TROJANS" BY 7 – 6
Madison Journal September 10, 1930
Trailing by a score of 6-0 at the end of the first half, the St. Aloysius College eleven of Vicksburg, Miss., entered the second period with new spirit, installed by "Flash" Ellis, full back, who scored the tying touchdown and then added the extra point which was to prove the margin of victory by a 7 - 6 score last Friday afternoon on the local field over Tallulah High School "Trojans."
The first quarter provided few thrills from either side with Tallulah on the offensive most of the time, although Captain Wilkerson of the Vicksburg team turned in some neat ball carrying when his team had the ball.
From the outset it was apparent that Tallulah would depend almost entirely on Jim Harris, captain and quarterback, who along with Cy Wixson, "Trojan" left half, turned in a nice offensive game. The "Trojans" captain carried the ball practically every other time, besides doing all the passing and kicking.
Otis Edgerton, "Trojan" fullback and safety man, paved the way for the local's score when, with clever interference by Hopper, he returned Wilkerson's punt 40 yards, placing the ball on S. A. C.'s 35 yard line. From this point jabs at the line by Harris and Wixson netted the first scoring of the game. Edgerton's kick for the point was wild.
A pass from Captain Wilkerson of S. A. C. to DiRago late in the third period was good for 40 yards, after which another series of passes placed the ball in position for Ellis to dive over tackle for the score. Ellis added the extra point in the same manner.
The last period again saw the "Trojans" in possession of the ball most of the time, but the strong collegian's line smeared most of the running plays. With time short, and attempts to gain through the Vicksburg line futile, Captain Harris called a series of passes which carried the ball within the shadow of S. A. C.'s goal, hut the latter forward wall was impregnable, and the ball went over.
Tallulah showed vast improvement over their game with Ferriday last Friday (last few lines illegible.)
TROJANS ROUT DELHI LAST WEEK, SCORE 25-0
Madison Journal September 17, 1930
Showing marked improvement in all around play, the Tallulah High School Trojans won over a stubborn Delhi eleven Friday afternoon on the local field, 25-0.
The score does not quite indicate the fierceness of the struggle. Tallulah scored her first two touchdowns by flashing a hard running game, but after Edgerton, Trojan fullback, managed to hide out on a spread play and take a long pass from Harris and dash 30 yards for the third touchdown which came early in the last period, the Delhi lads lost fight. The play, entirely a sneak, caught them dead asleep and they were little aware of what had happened until Edgerton had scampered across the goal.
James Harris and Captain Cy Wixson were offensive luminaries in the local's first victory of the season.
Delhi kicked to Tallulah to start the game. Harris kicked 50 yards on first down. Delhi duplicated by punting but lost ground on the play. Tallulah was on their opponent's 20 yard line after the exchange, but failed to make any headway. Delhi kicked again, but this time the local's were not to be stopped. Harris scored through the line for the first score. His kick for the point was wide.
The second quarter saw Delhi presenting her best offensiveness of the day, and although they failed to threaten seriously in this period or at any other time during the fray, "Billy" Buckanan and Purvis Copes, quarterback and left half, respectively, gained consistently through the Trojan line and around the ends. In fact, the second quarter was all Delhi except when Wixson, local back, turned in the prettiest work of the day by taking a pass from Harris on a criss-cross formation and running 60 yards through a broken field to score. The speedy Trojan made a brilliant run on the play, demonstrating some neat sidestepping. He was materially aided by Hopper on the play.
The third quarter saw the Trojans carrying the ball deep into Delhi’s territory where the play was to remain practically the rest of the game. The Trojans marched right down the field in this period but were repulsed after four downs on the enemy’s three yard line. Tallulah was gaining at will but lacked the punch within the ten yard line.
The fourth period saw the Trojans execute the pass caught by Edgerton which gave them their third marker of the day. Harris kicked goal after this one.
A fourth touchdown was made within one minute of the final whistle. Long punts by Harris had pushed Delhi back time and time again, and this time it was necessary to kick from behind the line. The ball was blocked and recovered by (remainder missing.)
TROJANS LEAVE TO BATTLE MANGHAM HI
Madison Journal September 17, 1930
With a 25-0 victory over Delhi under their belt, their first win of the season, the Tallulah "Trojans" left this morning for Mangham where they will play the high school team of that town this afternoon.
Accompanied by a number of local followers, the local squad embarked upon their second road trip of the year with a considerably improved crew over the one that took the field against Ferriday on the
TROJANS PREPARE FOR GAME WITH WISNER
Madison Journal October 24, 1930
With a 7-7 tie with Mangham now a matter of history, the Tallulah "Trojans" are looking to another road trip this week which carries them to Wisner for a game with the high school of that place this afternoon.
The "Trojans" are not exactly satisfied with the tie score with Mangham, but concede Mangham to have a scrappy outfit that battled them all the way. In fact, at times it appeared that the homelings would return with another defeat rather than a tie.
Although held to a lone touchdown in the Mangham game, the local backfield continued to show power, and on several occasions the backs got away on nice gains. James Harris kept up his scoring record of scoring at least one touchdown ever since the Ferriday game in which the locals were "whitewashed" 12-0. It was also Harris who added the point after the touchdown with a drop kick.
Cy Wixson, Edgerton and Hopper, aided materially in the backfield. The line play of Hynum, Matile, Clements and Nicols was also good.
After the game with Wisner played there this Friday, the locals will play the remainder of their schedule on the home field. Winnsboro, Crowville, Gilbert and Jefferson Military College of Washington, Miss., follow in the order named.
TALLULAH TROJANS LOSE STAR TACKLE
Madison Journal October 31, 1930
The Tallulah High School football team was dealt a severe blow by athletic authorities when they declared Louis Clements, big 180 pound tackle, ineligible for the current year because he failed to be enrolled in school here seventy days prior to becoming a candidate for the team. Clements, who played last year with Crowville, moved to Tallulah this summer, this being his first year in attendance at Tallulah High School.
Clements, the heaviest man on the local squad, has been outstanding in all of the games played by the Trojans this year, and his loss will be a great one.
The loss of Clements is a hard blow to the boys, but they will try their best to brace themselves in time to meet the strong Winnsboro team here today.
Another hard game was played by the Trojans last week when they played Wisner to a scoreless tie on the latter's home grounds. The tie with Wisner was the second consecutive deadlock engaged in by the homelings, as they on the Friday preceding tied Mangham 7-7.
So far the record made by the Trojans is most peculiar, and although the books do not look so good for them, the record is certainly not to be ashamed of.
After losing to Ferriday 12-0 at the beginning of the season, the Trojans have played good ball but have had the worst kind of luck. St. Aloysius College of Vicksburg, Miss., defeated them 7-6 after a local victory seemed certain most of the game. Following the Vicksburg game, the boys demonstrated real football in severely trouncing a stubborn Delhi eleven 25-0.
In this game the home team played like true Trojans, and the visitors never had a chance.
Since the Delhi victory, the boys have played good ball but while they have not lost any games, have lacked the punch to win. Thus, in the last four games they have lost one and won one.
With the remaining games to be played on the local field, the prospect for the boys to redeem themselves looks promising.
TROJANS IN GREAT UPSETTING VICTORY
Madison Journal November 7, 1930
In a dope upsetting affair, Tallulah's Trojans knocked Winnsboro's fast coming Wildcats out of the State "B" Conference race last Friday on the local grid by a score of 9 - 7.
The Wildcats, undefeated and untied before the game Friday, kicked to the Trojans who immediately began a march down the field which proved later to be only one of a series of drives that swept the visiting aggregation off its feet. Arriving at the ten yard line on the initial drive, Tallulah kicked the scoring punch, but after an exchange of punts duplicated her steady parading back down the field where the play remained in enemy territory throughout the entire quarter with Harris and Wixson gaining consistently through the line and around the ends. The quarter ended 0 - 0.
Shortly after the second period opened, Harris scored through center and he added the point with a drop kick. Score: Tallulah 7 Winnsboro 0.
The margin of victory came just before the close of the half when, with Winnsboro in the shadow of her goal, Earl, fullback, carelessly stepped over the goal line to kick out. This resulted in a safety for Tallulah. Score: Tallulah 9 Winnsboro 0.
The Wildcats seemed to find themselves at the starting of the second half. The entry of Godfrey, who replaced Hassell at left end for the "Cats" just before the half ended, seemed to inject new life into the team which played an improved game.
Led by Price and Godfrey, who played offensive fullback, the ball was carried, without interruption to the local's five yard line where Earl went over tackle for the touchdown. Earl passed to Givens for the point, making the score, 9-7.
This ended the scoring, but just before the final gun Harris broke through Winnsboro's center from midfield, placing the oval on the latter's five yard line, but they braced to prevent a score. Harris, after breaking through would have easily scored as he found a clear field ahead but the fleet quarterback hesitated, because of a misunderstanding as to the blowing of the referee's whistle.
The lineups follow:
Tallulah Pos. Winnsboro
Rushing L. E. Hassell
Sustrunk L. T. Hopper
Hynum L. G. Hosel
Motley C. Davis
Massey R. G. Cassbusy
Evans R. T. Wallace
Boswell R. E. Reinflrow
Harris Q. B. Price
Wixson H. B. Crutchfield
Edgerton H. B. Evans
Hopper F. B. Earl
Score by quarters:
Tallulah 0 9 0 0—9
Winnsboro 0 0 7 0—7
Coach Francis Talbert, former L. P. I. star, brought a well coached squad here which had not tasted defeat before clashing with Phillip's crew. The "Cats" had amassed a total of 108 points to opponent's 6 in four games. There is one thing that Winnsboro defeated Tallulah in however, and that was the "rooting" phase of the intense rivalry. There were approximately 100 fans from the Wildcats' home who came for the game. They had their special cheering section across the field from the Trojan stands, with yell, (missing words) that Winnsboro was bent on keeping their record spotless, but thanks to the "exponents of Troy" they failed to dent the local's armor.
For a brief moment local fans were frightened when Cramer Hopper, Trojan back, gave evidences of pulling a "Regal" stunt, and, "believe it or not," the home crowd rejoiced when he was brought down by an alert Wildcat tackled. It all happened when one of the visitor's passes bounded off the chest of one of their receivers, and like a flash, landed squarely in Hopper's "unwaiting arms." Hopper, dazed on the play, got all twisted and turned around, and for a moment there was no telling where he would go, or what he would do.
"Jimmy" Harris continued to demonstrate his sensational play, and along with Captain "Cy" Wixson ran through the opponent's line at will. Otis Edgerton and Hopper principally defensive backs, greatly aided their running mates with neat blocking. It would be hard to name an outstanding lineman in Friday's game. Teamwork overshadowed any spectacular work.
The game was easily the best exhibition of football seen here this season. Both teams played well, and although a miscue cost Winnsboro at least a tie, as far as point scoring goes, it must be stated that the "Cats" were, on the whole, outplayed. Furthermore, the Trojan had more "ifs" to their credit, and on this basis should have scored a couple more touchdowns.
If there is a better end in the "B" conference than Godfrey of the Wildcats, we would all like to see him. The play of Godfrey was sensational throughout, and his work on defense was by far the most outstanding that has been displayed on the local field this season. Godfrey, a well built player played defensive end and offensive fullback. On several occasions he was seen stopping Trojans backs attempting to go through center.
CROWVILLE FALLS AT HANDS OF TALLULAH
Madison Journal November 14, 1930
Tallulah's Trojans further redeemed themselves last Friday on the local field by soundly trouncing a highly touted Crowville eleven 18-6, and adding another outstanding upset over a conference team, undefeated and untied in conference circles before coming here.
Showing dash and fire, which was sadly lacking in early season play, and uncovering a new offensive in Otis Edgerton, the Trojans opened up a brand new bag of tricks on Crowville.
Tallulah, after receiving the opening kickoff, fumbled but after an exchange of punts made four successive first downs including a 40 yard pass, Harris to Wixson, which placed the ball on the four yard line from where Harris went over tackle to score. Harris failed to add the point.
Beginning the second period, with Harris running and passing beautifully and with Edgerton plunging for steady gains, the Trojans marched again to the ten yard stripe, but were repulsed. Shortly before the half ended, Hodge of' Crowville, passed 45 yards to A. Bradley who ran to the local's 30 yard line. On the next play A. Bradley circled left end to tie the score, but Hodge failed to kick the goal.
Boswell broke the tie for Tallulah, when he recovered a bounded punt off the chest of a Crowville receiver and dashed 45 yards for the local's second touchdown.
Edgerton plunged consistently to score for Tallulah in the last quarter making the final score 18-6 as the extra point was again not forthcoming.
Motley, Tallulah center, bore the brunt of the line play for his team, on many occasions breaking through to grab visiting backs before they got started.
Harris, Wixson and Edgerton all shared honors in advancing the pigskin for the Trojans, with Edgerton's ball carrying perhaps outshading the others.
For Crowville, Hodge, quarter, stole the show. His passing was the best seen on the home field all season. He thought nothing of heaving the ball from 30 to 50 yards, and most of his throws were made while on the dead run. He was throwing passes all afternoon, and although many of them never reached their destination it was not the passer's fault.

TALLULAH IN CLASH WITH GILBERT TODAY
Madison Journal November 14, 1930
Gilbert is the third target which the Tallulah High School Trojans are aiming to hit hard when the two elevens line up for battle on the local field this afternoon at 3:30 P. M.
After winning over Winnsboro and Crowville, two strong undefeated conference teams before coming here, the team led by Captain Cy Wixson has had everything to furnish the essential pep and vigor during the week's preparation for Gilbert, a team that will have to hustle in order to halt the fast pacing Trojans.
Fans, who have not seen the Trojans in action since their last road trip, will today see a vastly different squad take the field; one that is marked with about as much improvement as any team could show within such a short time.
Although Tallulah is definitely out of the championship race, the team is in a formidable position to be considered one of the strongest finishing teams in the State.
INTEREST MOUNTING IN PROVIDENCE GAME
Madison Journal November 14, 1930
Although the game with Gilbert today is occupying foremost attention of the local football fans at present, the approaching game with Lake Providence on Wednesday, November 26, is anxiously awaited.
As stated last week, a game with Lake Providence did not appear on the Trojan's original schedule, and the many football enthusiasts who have regretted the absence of the “ancient rivals" from the home boys' list of battles, are now rejoicing over the announcement that the proposed game has became a reality.
A month ago local supporters, in all probability, would not have been so keen over such a game, because at the time it looked as though Tallulah might not win a game during the season. However, with the reversal of form demonstrated by Coach Phillip's team in the last few games, the home crowd can see it no other way than a Tallulah victory.
Word has been received from Lake Providence that every football fan in town, who can possibly arrange to do so, will follow their squad here for the game. This message alone is sufficient impetus to assure an overflowing home attendance.
GILBERT ROUTED IN SEA OF MUD BY 38 – 0
Madison Journal November 21, 1930
Tallulah's revamped football machine won its third consecutive victory last Friday by drowning a game but inferior Gilbert team 38-0 on a water soaked field.
Gilbert, although represented by a courageous and scrapping little band of players, proved no match for their heavier opponents who slipped and skidded up and down the sea of mud for six touchdowns and two extra points.
After a scoreless first period for both teams, the Trojans backs got started with "Jim" Harris scoring from the ten yard line on a lateral pass. Harris was seen crossing the goal line again a few minutes later after a short spin through center, following an exchange of punts which gained advantageously for his team. Again Harris scored in the same quarter as a result of a neat gallop over center which was good for 70 yards. The fleet quarterback found an open field ahead after breaking through, and had only to evade the opposing safety man, which was easily done on the 20 yard line. Wixson passed to Harris for the point, making the score 19-0 as the half ended.
With the Gilbert squad virtually dead on their feet, the Trojans proceeded to romp during the last half, and after a 60 yard return of a punt by Edgerton for the fourth touchdown, the going was quite soft for the locals thereafter. After Edgerton scored two more touchdowns on line plays, the game was turned into a comical farce as Coach Phillips substituted frequently, allowing all the members of the squad a chance to show their wares.
Despite the one-sided score, the visitors had, in defeat, two stars who were very much in the show. These defeated heroes were in the personages of Wells, who alternated at end and half, and Polk, quarterback. Wells, who weighs hardly over 100 pounds, brilliantly exhibited an uncanny ability to knife through the heavier Trojans line to smear numerous plays. Time and again he brought the ball carrier down in his tracks.
Polk at quarter was about all the visitors had in the way of an offensive, but his gallant efforts were hailed by the crowd.
Further indications of the superiority of the locals is seen by the first downs, which were 16-2.
Score by quarters:
Tallulah 0 19 7 12—38
Gilbert 0 0 0 0— 0
ATTENTION CENTERED ON PROVIDENCE GAME
Madison Journal November 21, 1930
The big game with Lake Providence to be played next Wednesday, November 26, on the local school grid, is the cardinal thought of every football enthusiast and supporter of Coach M. A. Phillip's fast coming Trojans who are concentrating every possible effort toward conditioning themselves for the season's outstanding accomplishment, a victory over their nearby and ancient rivals.
All indications point toward a gala day on the occasion of the big contest; a day that should go down into the annals as one of the most colorful high school pigskin affairs ever staged in Tallulah and Madison Parish. All of Tallulah has pledged utmost support and cooperation in boosting the mighty battle, and this assures the local grid warriors that their sideline cohorts will be numerous when they line up for the kickoff.
A game with Lake Providence did not appear on the Trojans' original schedule, and the many football fans who had regretted the absence of the age-old rivals from the home boys' list of battles, received the recent announcement that the game would be played with the wildest kind of joy.
Paper figures hint a Providence triumph, they reveal that Coach Dewit Saul's charges have won six games out of nine played, in which 168 points were scored against 119 for their opponents. The Panthers opened with an easy 27-0 win over Louisiana Training Institute of Monroe. Delhi was the next victim by a 13-0 score. Forest went down 45-0, and St. Aloysius of Vicksburg, Miss., followed suit in defeat, losing 25-0. St. Matthews of Monroe failed to score as the Panthers were again on the heavy end with 38 points. Their sixth shutout defeat was administered to the strong Crowville eleven, on the latter's home grounds, last week, 7-0.
Looking at the wrong side of the Panthers' record book, one sees where games were lost to Oak Grove, 17-7; Rayville, defending "B" champions, 38-0, and to Ouachita Parish High of Monroe, 64-6. So, all in all, it is plainly apparent that the Providence delegation has a pretty good football team.
Turning toward the record established by the Trojans, a vastly different, peculiar and even astonishing aspect is seen. A green, inexperienced and untested band of players went to Ferriday to inaugurate the 1930 season. The result was a 12-0 setback, but nothing disgraceful as the untried Trojans lost to a team that has successfully kept up in the championship race all season.
St. Aloysius of Vicksburg, Miss., a team which Providence smothered, came here next to eke out a 7-6 win after a grueling battle. The fruits of victory were enjoyed the following week—as Delhi was beaten 25-0. When local hopes of a winning stride were mounting, the team slumped to tie Mangham 7-7. Then, another tie, this time a scoreless deadlock with Wisner.
But from here on out the home boys proudly point to their spectacular reversal of form and it all reads like a novel. The championship bound Winnsboro team, undefeated and untied, blew into town for a let-up affair; a mere breezer before harder games to come. It was a breeze all right, men played brilliantly to win 18-6. Gilbert was downed 38-0 last week.
It all goes to show that the Tallulah Trojans are no longer the crude, unpolished crew that for a long time were the earmarks of typical cellarites. But today the Trojans are an improved and powerful machine that is ready to cope with the best in the conference.
TROJANS TRIUMPH 13-6 OVER PROVIDENCE
Madison Journal November 28, 1930
Led by Jimmie Harris, triple threat quarterback, who brilliantly brought to a close his high school career this afternoon, the Tallulah Trojans toppled the powerful Lake /Providence Panthers, pregame favorites, by 13-6 in a colorful Thanksgiving-eve grid classic on the local field. Harris scored the first touchdown, and put the ball in scoring position for the second in addition to passing brilliantly and punting like a "Peggy Flournoy.”
Lake Providence kicked to Edgerton on the goal line, who after a neat 35 yard return was injured after being brought down. After an extended timeout play was resumed to see Lake Providence recover Wixson's fumble.
Providence started with a bang from Tallulah's 38 yard line, with Murihead and Swink thrilling the crowd with steady gains to place the ball within scoring distance, but Tallulah held.
After an exchange of punts the Trojans recovered the ball on the Providence 45 yard line. Harris passed to Wixson for 40 yards. With the ball on the 35 yard stripe, Edgerton went five on a reverse spinner. Wixson went over left tackle for five more, and Harris scored through the left side for the first touchdown. Harris kicked goal. The quarter ended with Tallulah leading 7-0.
Swink received for Providence on the 15 yard line, and raced back behind beautiful interference to midfield. Swink reversed his field and outran the scrimmage line to place the ball on the Trojan's 40 yard line. Providence kicked to Edgerton the 30, and a penalty for clipping pushed the Trojans back to the goal line. Harris punted out of danger.
King, called from end to carry the ball for the visitors, made nice runs to aid Swink, who threw a clever pass to Murihead placing the ball on the local's 40 yard line as the half ended.
Tallulah kicked to Providence to start the second half. Providence failed to gain and punted to Tallulah's 30. After another exchange of punts, play was seen in midfield practically throughout the remainder of the period with one team and then the other attempting to gain on punts.
Starting the fourth period, Swink heaved a 45 yard pass to Claycomb who ran to the Trojans’ 6 yard line. Two line plays put the ball on the 1 foot line from which Swink circled left end to score. The kick was a fizzle.
Providence grew desperate for another score as Swink filled the air with passes to no avail. With only a few minutes left to play, the Trojan backs flashed down the field again with Edgerton and Harris gaining consistently. Edgerton scored from the three yard line through tackle. The kick was wide.
Harris, Edgerton, Motley and Hopper played splendid ball in their swan song game for the Trojans, while the work of Wyly, Swink, Claycomb and King was outstanding for the losers.
