"Scout Tom Cats" Football Team

Subject

Woodstock (Va)
Riley, Web

Description

In 1930 Web "W.O." Riley and Rev. H.S. Coffey organized the "Scout Tom Cats" football team. This photograph shows the players beside the Woodstock Methodist Church, who sponsored the team, in 1930. Massanutten Academy's coach Leroy Glunt outfitted the team with discarded uniforms and equipment. They played other clubs from Luray, Mt. Jackson, Strasburg, and Massanutten Academy.

At the time Woodstock and other county schools did not officially sponsored sports teams so youth participated in sports sponsored by community organizations or school clubs.

Identified in this photograph are, from left to right:

Row 1: Carl Kessler, Bob Lambert, Buck Ritenour, Howard (Alligator) Coffman, Dick Wickham, Lee Bushong, Chippy Lambert, and Bill Allen
Row 2: Jim Buck Coffman, Buddy Rudy, Eeugene Pence, Ike Phillips, Jim Ambrose, Joe Lambert, Marshall Miller, and Talford Miller
Row 3 (rear): Web O. Riley and Reverend Coffey.
