|Ferriday All-Bulldog team|
Believe it or not, when Presbyterian minister J.C. Stokes began the idea of starting a football team at Ferriday High School in 1927, he was met with a whole lot of opposition from people who thought the sport was too rough.
Some 30 years later, the only thing that was tough was having Ferriday High on your schedule.
Stokes was a Presbyterian minister who led Winnfield High to a state championship.
Selecting an All-Ferriday Bulldog team (1927-69) was certainly no easy task. Just try picking the best from the decade of the 1950s when Johnny "Red" Robertson led the Bulldogs to four straight titles and 54 straight games without a loss. LSU head coach Paul Dietzel was a regular visitor to the school.
Everyone knows about those teams, but how about the 1944 Bulldog team which lost to Slidell 14-6 in the Class B state finals or the 1962 Ferriday team which lost to New Iberia 13-0 in the Class A championship game?
Ferriday went 3-4 in its first year of 1927. In 1928, Ferriday went 6-2-2. The Bulldogs were led by J.O. "Otts" Wilson, a guard who was nicknamed "The Barefoot Wonder." Ferriday actually lost a game to LSU's freshman team (The Kittens), 18-0.
As with the other teams, a player could not be named on both sides of the ball, although about 75 percent of the players on this team could have been named on offense and defense.
