This picture is from the collection of Mrs. Aude McWilliams, owned by her daughter, Hazel (McWilliams) Goode McEnturff, wife of Eddy McEnturff of Edgewood. This Bulldog team won the regional football title in 1946. A large picture of them has hung in a place of honor in the Edgewood School from that time. This is a replica of the picture, that was reproduced on a calendar years ago. The old Edgewood High School building is in the background. The late I. T. James, who is pictured here, was honored for his years of great coaching and teaching by having the football field at the new Edgewood School named for him.
