    Football At Salisbury

    Salisbury School held its first football practice in 1904, and the small, inexperienced squad played two games that year. A short hiatus followed, but in 1907 competition on the gridiron resumed. In 1910 the team completed its first undefeated season, with a record of 5-0-1. That same year the rapidly expanding school fielded its first “Thirds” squad. Two members of the 1917 varsity team were selected “All-American” members of the “Yale Eleven.” Football season was interrupted only in 1918 when World War I caused the student body to turn to military drill and “Swedish” exercise instead. Football resumed in 1919 under the leadership of coach John Myers, recently returned from active military service. His squads completed undefeated seasons in 1920 and 1921. The 1921 squad trounced its opponents by a combined score of 301-0. For more than three decades, football ruled autumn afternoons at Salisbury as the only interscholastic sport and in 1930 95-100 boys filled four separate teams. The team compiled another undefeated season in 1955, going 5-0. Football enjoyed great success in the 1950s and early 1960s under coaches Tom Dorsey and Bob Gardner, with a combined record of 26-9 over a period of eight seasons. Another undefeated campaign led by coach Ted Childs followed in 1974. During the 1980s, Salisbury School joined the Fairchester Football League. Despite growing competition from other fall sports, football enjoyed its greatest success in the late 1990s and early 2000s under the guiding hand of coaches Sean Brennan and Chris Adamson, winning New England championships in 1997, 2000 and 2007.  Under the leadership of Head Coach Chris Phelps, the Crimson Knights celebrated:
