A LOOK Back: Edmond Football 1921

Members of the 1921 Edmond High School football team stop practice to pose for a photograph as coach Avon Potter looks on. Taken outside of Edmond’s first high school building, the players wear football uniforms and equipment consistent with the time period.

Located where Russell Dougherty is today, on Boulevard between Hurd and Main Street, it was built in 1917 but only used as a high school until the building that is Boulevard Academy today was built around 1925. The team ended the 1921 season with a 5-3 record. Photo provided by Edmond History Museum.
