Football is a special part of Michigan Tech’s history. Michigan Mining School students played with local high school and community teams in the 1890s, but it wasn’t until 1920 that a club team played against another college when it scheduled two games against Northern State Normal (now Northern Michigan University). This season marked the beginning of intercollegiate football, then prior to the 1924 season, football was “officially” recognized as a college sport.
Calvin Larson, Tech’s assistant athletic director for media relations, helped with the book, and longtime NFL offensive lineman and Michigan Tech All-American Joe Berger ’04 wrote the foreword. . Michigan Tech football alumni John Benaglio ’69, Dennis Euers ’65 and Alex Kowalski ’00 covered the cost of printing the book so that all purchases benefit the football program.
