Fun Fact: Perk Bulldogs Win Championship

From the Stone County Enterprise …. Oct. 13, 1927

PERKINSTON JUNIOR COLLEGE NOTES

Bull Dogs Defeat Goodman

 The first championship game was played Saturday on the court at Perkinston, Miss. between the Perk Bull Dogs and Goodman Junior College.  The Goodman boys put up a hard fight, but were defeated in the end, the score being thirty-one to nothing, in favor of Perk.

The weather was so unpleasant that everyone was afraid the game would be postponed, but upon questioning Coach, the following answer was given as the boys yelled over the campus… “we are going to play if we have to swim”.  The rush began and the students could not be checked…  Then standing in a torrent of rain, every student put his heart and soul in the game, and showed a clean one, and everybody enjoyed it.
