Kansas football

from a tweet

In 1928 the Kansas School for the Deaf’s football team scored a total of
239 points against two Missouri teams. The KSD Jackrabbits beat St. Paul’s
College 128-0 and the American Legion team of Independence, Missouri
111-0.

note:
a team picture was posted on the tweet. Judging from the looks on players’
faces, their ages must have been 20-21 years old. Overage players are not
allowed nowadays, but it was common in deaf schools years ago.

Why cannot DeafDigest Sports post up the picture of the
1928 Kansas School for the Deaf team picture in this
edition.

Copyright issues can get quite ugly and DeafDigest Sports
editor wishes to stay out of it. Must ask permission
first and some responses from owners of these pictures
can get nasty!

Pictures taken by coaches, fans and athletic directors
can be posted because it is their permission to have
these posted.
