Football History

Game-by-Game Results vs. All Opponents, 1920-forward
In Chronological Order (Except for 1920-26)

  Roman Catholic first played football in 1895. It was part of the Catholic
League for the first season, in 1920, and has remained there since; there
was no formal competition in 1929.

  Some notes . . . Egan is now Conwell-Egan, Bonner is now Bonner-Prendergast,
South Catholic became Neumann and is now Neumann-Goretti, St. Matthew's
became Archbishop Kennedy and later merged with Bishop Kenrick to become
Kennedy-Kenrick, Chestnut Hill is now SCH Academy, West Chester is now
WC Henderson, Lansdowne-Aldan is now Penn Wood, St. Robert's became St.
James.

  Information for this page came from records provided by Dr. Roger B. Saylor,
a famed Pennsylvania football historian (he passed away in 2013); old Bulletin
Almanacs, personal records and research at https://www.newspapers.com.
