71 Years Ago – The Cardinals Were in a Tight Spot!

After losing five straight games at the beginning of the 1952 football season, the Chadron High Cardinals and their coach, Carl McManis, were in need of a victory when they faced off against the Gordon Broncs.

We came across the program from that October 17, 1952 game. Despite the small type, we thought you might be able to recognize some of the names from the Cardinal roster – and perhaps a few of the Gordon players, too.

Chadron won the game, 20-7, ending their 5-game losing streak.
