The High School Left End
by H Irving Hancock

Overview -
Excerpt: ...eleven. And now the practice was over for the afternoon. The whistle between coach's lips sounded three prolonged blasts, and the young players, flushed, perspiring--aching a bit, too--came off the field. Togs were laid aside and some time was spent under the shower baths and in toweling. Only a small part of the late crowd of watchers remained at the athletic field. But the kicker and his companion were among those who stayed. Coach Morton stood for a time talking with some citizens who had lingered.

In fact, not more than five or six of the young men have been definitely picked as sure to make the School team. We shall have it all decided within a few days." "But you're rather certain," insisted another, "that Gridley is going to have as fine a School team as it has ever had?" "It would be going too far to say that," replied Coach Morton slowly. "The truth is, we never know anything for certain until we have seen our boys play through the first game. Our judgment is even more reliable after they've been through the second game." By this time, some of the football squad were coming out of locker rooms, heading across the field to the gate. Coach Morton and the little group of citizens turned and went along slowly after them. The kicker was still on hand. Just as the boys neared the gate there were heard sounds of great commotion on the other side of the high board fence. There were several excited yells, the sound of running feet, and then more distinct cries. "He's...
