Highlights of The George Washington University Football Program, 1890-1966

1966

After 58 seasons of active participation, the football program was terminated after the 1966 season. In that final year GWU won two of the three major football awards in the Southern Conference. Coach Jim Camp was voted “Coach of the Year” by the Southern Conference Sportswriters. Junior guard Brad Cashman was voted the best blocker in the conference by the coaches, receiving the “Jacob’s Blocking Trophy.” The Colonials finished with a 4-6 record and were 4-3 in the conference, ranking fourth.

Individuals receiving awards were:

AP ALL-AMERICAN TEAM (HONORABLE MENTION):

Steve Molnar - fullback/tailback (Sophomore)
Brad Cashman - offensive guard (Junior)
Norman Neverson - defensive end (Senior)

1961
The Colonials defeated V.M.I 30-6 in the Dedication game at D.C. Stadium (later R.F.K. Stadium), October 7. GW also played the first night game at the stadium on October 20th, as Washington, D.C. native Dick Drummond scored four touchdowns for the Colnials, equaling the Southern Conference record.

1956
Probably GW’s most successful season. The team went 7-1-1 to gain a bowl berth and defeated Texas Western 13-0 in the Sun Bowl. Bo Austin was voted the Most Valuable Player of the game.

1953
Steve Korcheck was voted “Player of the Year” in the Southern Conference, and later served on the staff of the Physical Education Department at GW. He was a recipient of a Distinguished Alumni Achievement Award in 1993.

1936
The team compiled a 7-1-1 record, with major wins over Arkansas, 13-6, West Virginia 7-2, and Wake Forest, 13-12. The tie was with Mississippi 0-0, and the only loss was to Rice 12-6.

1930
The team played their first night game, a 0-0 tie with South Dakota on October 16th under the lights at Griffith Stadium.

1908
GW finished 8-1-1, and grabbed headlines by beating the University of Maryland 77-0 in a game where it lead 50-0 at the half, prompting the second half to be cut mercifully to 15 minutes. It won the South Atlantic Championship by defeating V.P.I. 6-0 in Blacksburg, Virginia, in a game that was delayed until late afternoon due to a heavy snowstorm.

1907

The Hatchet noted in an article that fall: "The color of the Varsity football sweater has been changed. Instead of a buff sweater with a blue “W”, the sweaters for last season’s lettermen will be blue with buff “W”. it is thought that the sweaters in this color will be more serviceable, as the light colored ones soon become soiled and on this account were not so much used on the gridiron, for which purpose they were originally designed. The change is in the nature of an experiment, which will be tried this year for the first time."
