Thus begins this colorful history of football at Mercer University, 1892-1942

Thus begins this colorful history of football at Mercer University, 1892-1942. Mercer had only 179 registered students in 1892 when the first Mercer eleven met the first Georgia eleven on the gridiron in Athens in January 1892, the FIRST college football game in the state of Georgia, and one of the first in the Southeast. College football in 1892 was a far cry from the organized splendor it is today. Uniforms were makeshift, with little or no padding.

While this is a detailed book about Mercer college football, it is actually much more than that. It may not be a history of college football, but it gives an insight that a broader history probably would not. I enjoyed the book and learned much, but I did not read every word.

Robert Hooks was a college football player and coach. 172 – via Google Books

Robert Hooks was a college football player and coach. He was a running back for the Georgia Bulldogs, a member of its dream and wonder team. Against Yale, he threw a 59-yard touchdown pass to Frank Dudley. He was selected All-Southern by football fans of the South through Central Press newspapers References. Garbin, Patrick (1 August 2007). The Best Georgia Football Stories Ever Told".

For fifty years Mercer played in more than 300 games against the great (Alabama, Army, Georgia, Florida, and others) and the nearly great (Savannah Library Association, Locust Grove Institute, North Georgia Aggies). Alas college football eventually became a big (and expensive) business, and the last Mercer team was fielded in 1941. For Mercer alumni, Coach Wilder's chronicle is necessary reading. But the football fan in general also will find interesting, informative, and even exciting reading in this history of the game as it was played then.
