And Talkin' Sports P*L*U*S Other Project for 2018...


The 2018 Football Season is the 70th Anniversary of the inaugural

1948 Paper Bowl!

That fist college game played in Pensacola was at Pensacola High School Stadium on Saturday, December 18, 1948:

Jacksonville State Teachers College, 19 - 0, over Troy State Teachers College.

Celebrating that Paper Bowl game in 1948, and then Pensacola's two "hometown football teams":

During the 1950s & '60s, it was the "GOSHAWKS,"

the Pensacola Navy "GOSHAWKS", located on and played home-games at NAS-Mainside,

and played against other service teams and several colleges each season too.​

And, playing from 1979 to 1983 it was the "WINGS,"

the Pensacola "WINGS," a semi-pro team playing in the Dixie Football League.  Home games were played at local

high school stadiums, played against other semi-pro teams, service teams, and two colleges too!
