This week in Ross football history....1930


Week seven of the 1930 season saw the Little Giants continue their quest for a Little Big Seven conference title against Tiffin Columbian. Ross was 5-1 on the season after a 25-0 win the previous week over Willard.

Tiffin came into Fremont to face a Little Giant team determined to avenge a loss to their Seneca County neighors suffered in 1929. Ross rolled out to a 25-0 lead before Coach Robert Oldfather pulled the first string. Columbian got their only score after that.

The Little Giants first points of the game came at the end of a long drive that started at the Ross 10 yard line and was climaxed by a five yard Td run by Hess. The extra point attempt failed and the Little Giants led 6-0. The second Ross score came after the Little Giants recovered a Tiffin fumble at the Columbian 40. Ross drove to the Tiffin one where Hess punched it in for the score. The PAT was good and Ross led 13-0.

The Little Giants scored again in the third quarter with a drive that started on the Tiffin 31. Ross capped that drive with an O'Farrell to Brehm touchdown pass. The extra point attempt was no good and the Fremonters were leading 19-0.

The final Ross TD came later in the third quarter when a Columbian punt was very short and the Little Giants took over at the Tiffin 17 yard line. O'Farrell promptly scored for Ross on a 17 yard run. The PAT was no good and Fremont led 25-0.

The Tornadoes punched in a score against the Fremont second team to complete the scoring for the Saturday afternoon.

The 25-6 win gave the Little Giants a 6-1 record as they went on to win the Little Big Seven title.
