Lakeland football history

Recommended Posts

Does Anyone who come to the board have the early results for Lakeland? I have the results from 1939-2017 complete. Also some seasons from 1907-1938. These are the years I need. If anyone has them please let me know.

This will help you a little bit perhaps but Leesburg does an amazing job with its own history. Perhaps Lakeland might have played them during those years. 

Also i believe Lakeland has a web site that may help.

i use the Google News newspapers archives.

I was able to find some of the years

Duval High School Tigers of Jacksonville were 8-0 and became the first Florida team ever to be declared national champions by any organization (National Sports News Service). They whipped Dayton Steele of Ohio, which was regarded as the top team in the Midwest, 21-0, and then crushed Gainesville High School 56-0 in what was labeled a state championship game. Duval outscored opponents 366-3, allowing only Charleston (S.C.) High to score on a single field goal. Duval also won games 44-0 over Moultrie (Ga.) High, 34-0 over Montgomery (Ala.) Sidney Lanier, 77-0 over Lake City High and 74-0 over Hillsborough High.
