ABOVE: 1928 McGuffey High School undefeated football team......maybe?


This team photo includes R. Kirk Mee (middle row, second from right). Unfortunately, other persons are not identified. Since R. Kirk Mee II graduated from McGuffey High School in Oxford, Ohio, we assume that this is a McGuffey team. Lettering on the football being held at the center of the photo reports zero losses in the year 1928. The number of wins cannot be discerned.
