From The Chillicothe Yearbook
     The football team this year was handicapped by the influenza epidemic and by the lack of material. Because of the difficulty in securing a coach, Supt. Threlkeld consented to aid the team as much as possible.
     The team had practiced about two weeks when the schools were closed on account of the epidemic in the country. This caused the team to lose much practice. When school reopened they had only practiced one week until the first game was scheduled with Excelsior Springs, Nov. 14th.

Coburn Unanimous Choice for Center of All Star Team of Northwest Mo.
     Richmond Coburn was the real star of the Chillicothe team. He weights 165, is six feet two inches tall. He is aggressive and makes holes in the line at will. He was the unanimous choice for center, although Gall of Cameron gave him a close race. - K.C. Journal.
