Unknown Football Team …

Football Team_No Info _ RTP _ 11 Mar 15  _ SFW I have the negative for this image filed as ” Football Team – Unknown “.  I feel that it is probably from Pensacola High School, but I cannot be positive.  But what interests me is the team’s equipment … the helmets look to be made of leather and there is no protective bar on the front of the helmet.  I do not know what you call this protective piece that is worn on all of the helmets now days.  Look at player number “36” seated on the front row.  He looks like he is sporting some type of bandage over his left eye … must have taken a really bad hit, but it did not stop him.  On the back row there are several players ( #56 for one ) that look like they are wearing a helmet from back in the 1930’s or 40’s for sure.  The stadium suggests that this could have been PHS, but like  I mentioned I am not sure.  I know that there a few views out there that could tell me if this is PHS or not and maybe they will speak out and tell us.  I just found this negative recently and it was loose in a box with a lot of other negatives that had no information either.  However, like I have mentioned earlier, my main purpose is to share images that my father made and to show a much simpler time / era.  If someone has any information, well that is great … icing on the cake so to speak.  If not, you have an idea what your parent’s and grandparent’s lived through and endured.  So maybe we don’t have it so bad after all, eh?  Thanks for looking and as always all comments are welcomed and appreciated … Please check back … Frank
