L0NG BEACH HIGfl SCHOOL (PoM CALIFORNIA'S FIRST STATE CIIAMPION IN FOOTBALL SATARDAY, DECEMBER 27, 1919 TOURNAMENT PARK, PASADENA

Ninth historical "tidbit." Long Beach High School (now called Long Beach "Polytechnic") won the first Califomia State Football Championship defeating the Berkeley High School Yellowjackets by a score of 21 14 on December 27, 1919. The State CIF had tried to play the state football championships for three years prior but was unable to get a game organtzed due to a flu epidemic and scheduling conflicts. Here are some historical "tidbits" from that first Championship game:

-

From the minutes of the March B. 1919 Stale CIF meeting:

"lt

was moved, seconded, and carried that there be no award of a State Championship for football for the year l9l8 because the Spanish influenza had prevented the sections from completing

their schedule."

Rose Bowl officials organued the game to be held annually atthe Pasadena Tournament Park on the Safurday preceding the New Year's game which in l919 was Harvard vs. Oregon.

The game was played at2:00 p.m. in the aftemoon with ticket prices set at 25 &.50 cents, $ 1.10 and World War I taxes were included. Long Beach defeated Dinuba 4l - 0 in the semi-final game played before one of the largest crowds ever to see a sporting event in Fresno. Dinuba protested the game saying that a Long Beach player was completing his ninth semester of school work which was against the state rules...the protest was not upheld. A "Governor's Trophy" was presented to Long Beach for being the State Champions. Both teams had defeated local "college" teams and Berkeley scrimmaged regularly against the University of California frosh team.


In addition to their official nicknames, many called Berkeley the "Universify Eleven" and the Jackrabbits were refen'ed to as the "Seasiders." Berkeley's uniforms were the same color as the Harvard team and when the fwo squads just happened to practice on the same field many felt it was attempt to scare the Oregon boys who brought three full teams to the Rose tsowl and Harvard only two. 1

920 Rose Bowl" " . Harvard 7 - Oregon 6 Long Beach was favored by three touchdowns because of their bulk...their line averaged 175 pound and the fact that many local Trojan alumni said the Jackrabbits could have beaten USC's fi'osh team. Coach Hunt of Berkeley said his team average was 158 pounds. One of Berkeley's victories was by a score of I 16 to 0 over Tamalpais Union High School and they twice trounced the University of California's J"V's. In their eleven games, Berkeley had scored 524 points and gave up only 51. In ten games, Long Beach had scored 413 markers and

allowedjust 14. 12,000 fans were in attendance. It was said that Berkeley outplayed Long Beach and made fwice as many yards rushing the ball. One sports writer wrote, "All during the first two periods Long Beach stood up like telegraph poles as to get abetter view of the proceedings...and the Berkeley backs made monkeys of them." Long Beach scored on two long runs and pass for a touchdown and Berkeley ground out two long drives for their scores. There were several holding penalties during the game at crucial times and a "Los Angeles Times" reporter wrote, "A man *ould make alongrun and then be called back for a teammate's

misconduct." The stars for Long Beach were "Hoggy" Evans, Capt. Chet Dolley and Lawson. The stars for Berkeley were Cheek, Dunn, Witter and Dickson.


*

Members of Scott High School out of Toledo, interscholastic champions of the East, were also in town on their way to play Everett High School of Washington state for what some referred to as the mythical National Championship. Scotts' head coach Pat Dwyer even gave a pep talk to the Jackrabbits during intermission and, "put some zip" inthe Long Beach linemen. Long Beach was coached by Ed Keinholz and Berkeley by E. P. Hunt. Immediately after the game, the undefeated Phoenix High School of Arizona (six-time state champions) challenged the Jackrabbits to a game played in Long Beach for the Championship of the Southwest. The game was played January 10, I92A on the campus of Long Beach High School. The grandstand had been enlarged and circus seats were obtained to accommodate alarge crowd on the Seasider's field. Phoenix coach Francis Geary, a former 1904 All American at Fordham, also wanted to take on the winner of the Everctt/Toledo game. Long Beach High School overwhelmed the Phoenix High School Coyotes 102 tp 0. The day became known in Long Beach as the "Bie U2ias fifteen touchdowns were scored...running back Tiernan carried for 333 yards and LeFevre covered another 2A5 yards on the gridiron. It was said that the Seasiders where mad about their State Championship game performance. A humorous fwist of the game was told by Harry J. Moore, the first President of the CIFSS Council and an administrator in Long Beach: "A close game had been anticipated and Long Beach merchants had offered prizes of hats, shirts, ties and so forth to players scoring touchdowns. Late in the rout the backs decided that they'd won enough prizes and so allowed linemen to score the remainder of the touchdowns and collect their share of the haberdashery." "Los Angeles Times" February 4,1954

OTMALX* Long Beach High School"s fighting team placed an indelible teeord of vietories on the I9l?-20 football escutcheon by defeating the best prep teams in the west and winning the undisputed interscholastic championship of Southwestern United States.

Combining a fast vercStlle backfield with a heavy experieneed line, Long Beach possessed a powerful offensive that, with a single game. exception, scored at least once during the first quarter of every In the twelves games played, Long Beach amassed a total of. 549 points to the otrrponents' 21, and it wasn't until the Berkeley game ihat the locals' goal was legitir.r.ately crossed' Never in the history of western football has a high school team annexedas many championships as has this year's eleven, ar]id a world of credit for the .q,ruJ', marvelous success is due the eoaching of Eddie Kienhole' R.eturning to school after fwo yeats in the serviee, KienholZ succeeded in putting a team on the gridiron that met and def'eated the strongest grid machines in the country, going through a most s ehedule without a single reversal, and ending the seaso{l gruelling "^ u bluze of glory by overwhelming Fhoenix union High school, for six years AriZona state champions, by the record-smashing seore of I02-0. The willingness on the part of every member of the squad to_siyg everything thaiwas in him to bring victory to the Green and Gold, ercated a spirit that refused to accept defeat'

BERKELEY-I4, LONG BEACH_2I At Totrrnament Park. December twenty-seventh, before

ap-

nroximately 10,000 people the sndef.eated Jackrabbit machine brot the state championship to Long Beach by besting Berkeley High' Northern California champions, 2l -14" Forced to play on the defensive through almost the entite contest, with what looked tobe ceftain deteat staring the men in the f-ace, the Green and Gold outgamed their heavier northern oFponents rnd led by a single touchdown when the final whistle bleu" The first half was f.eatured by the dazzling broken field running of Dolley and Lef.ebvre" which resulted in two Long Beach touchdowns, and the line-smashing tactics of Berkeley that brought the Crimson-clad waruiors an equal number of scores. With the game tied 14-14, Berkeley continued to pound the local Iine during the third quarter. Their attack advanced the ball in their own terfitory but was inellective when within striking distance of the Long Beach goal, and the score was still the same at the start of the iina| period, The ball was in Long Beach's possession on Berkeley's 35-yard Iine when Phil Tiernan droppedback as if to try a drop kick. Instead of kicking, Tiernan shot a beautiful forward pass over one end "' +he lina The great *owd held its breath in the agonized intensity of the moment; then out of the melee of players leaped Lawson. H3. pulled down the ball and without losing his stride set out upon his twenty -five pard iourney to the Berkeley goal line. The Long Beach crowds on one part of the field were instantlv on theit f.eet" Flere was the moment which every Long Beach student and evety hacker of the local team had been looking for. The stands q/ere in a mad f.renzy as Lawson wormed his way nast all the Crimson players except Cheek, the quarterback, With a straight- arm iab and a sudden side step, limmy elsded the opposing auarter and f.airly hurled himself over the line" Therc still remained a few mintttes of nlay after this nerve-tingling run, but the touchdown had taken the heart out of the Berkeley team and the game ertCed without further scoring.


PHOENIX-O, LONG BE4CH-102 The iargest crowd ever assembled for a orep school game in the \X/est witnessed the grcat Long Beach eleven win the championship ,^f .southwestern United States by def.eating the Phoenix Union High School squad by the largest score ever made by a loca| team-102-0. It was a grand and glorious finish to the local gridiron season. Over 12,000 spectators viewed this contest. Although the seating eapaclty of the stands is slightiy greater than half that number, the crowd poured in until there was a mass of jostling humanity encircIing. the field and tugging at the ropes impatiently. fnterest in the game ran high because of its intersectional flavor. Never had a scholastic gridiron clash of such importance been conducted on a southern field. Furthermore, the game furnished the final kickoff of the season which had excelled any of previous years' :nd in the unusually huge crowd were rnany whose desire to be "in" : t the final vrhistle overshadowed their interest in the teams. The game itself was as one-sided as the score inCicates, yet the crowd seemed to enioy it, Phoenix was outclassed in evety s1:ay' Everything worked against the Arizonans. End runs, off-tackle smashes, forward passes, trick plays, all werc used to roll up the total of 102 points. If. any one player stood out above the rest it was Phil Tiernan, Long Beach phantom-like halfback. Tiernan, along with Do11ey, Evans, Monis, Rich and V7i11et, brought his career at Long Beach to a glorious finish in this end-season game, He caused rcpeated exclamations from the stands by his sensational open-field work and Lrilliant end runs. Nothing could stop him-at Ieast nothing the Phoenicians could do. The most remarkable and successful season Long Beach has ever enioyed closed with this gamq and the most brilliant of. al| Long Beach gridiron machines passed down into history. It was an all-star squad and the 1919-1920 Long Bzach High School eleven will alsrays be remembered as the bunch that would not accept def.eat,
