<Football Records>     <1915 Football Season>

       1915 was not a good year for Hornets football. They had only a four-game schedule and lost all four games by a combined score of 81-12, including a loss to a make-shift team of Chillicothe High School Alumni. So, when a group of fellow classmates taunted that the team was so bad, even they could beat them, the football  team readily accepted the challenge.
     The game was treated as a full regulation game with officials, paid attendance and newspaper coverage. It didn't take long for the upstart students to realize they had underestimated their 0-4 school team. It was the Hornets team that had the last laugh, with a 51-0 thumping of the students
