A Century of Heroes, has to be the MOST incredible, and accurate account of 100 years of Massillon football. It is 1024 pages of pure amazement. It depicts the beginning of our wonderful Massillon Tigers. So many of these people in this book I have the joy of watching them play. This truly the cradle of football, as Mr. Shook takes us on a walk down memory lane. So if you have had a family member or friend who was in this football program, it is a must read. To the people of Massillon we are in a league of our own. If you a football fan read this book it tells where it all began.
In the beginning they were the Pro Tigers, there are so many greats like Knute Rockne leading Massillon against Jim Thorpe and his Canton The Tigers were 17-6-2, in those days they were pro game. Knute played for Notre Dame as one of the “Four Housmen of Notre Dame”. So begins the “America’s first high school dynasty”
John Snavely, Dave Stewart, Paul Brown, Ducky Schroeder, Chuck Mather, Tom Harp, Leo Strang, Earle Bruce ( who was undefeated), just name a few. They are just a few of some of greatest coaches.
A must read for past, present and even future Tigers. “The story of The Massillon Tiger”
TRADITION, HERITAGE & PRIDE!
History In The Making:

Six Massillon players have been elected at Ohio State captain . Three Massillon coaches have become head coaches at Ohio State.

Highly recommended I would give ten stars, but they allow five stars!
