About this Item

271 pp. The last junior college annual of Jackie Robinson, with his half-length photographic portrait (on Varsity football team). The description of Varsity football begins: "Pasadena Junior College's greatest football team sparked by its greatest individual athlete, Jack Robinson. That's what critics were saying of Coach Tom Mallory's 1938 gridiron juggernaut after the Bulldogs won 11 straight games, scoring 369 points. Unanimous choice as most valuable player, Robinson's contribution was 131 points and over 1000 yards from scrimmage." In the game against Santa Ana, " Jack Robinson's 83-yard gallop with Larry Monroy's punt was the climax of the wild-scoring game. four touchdowns plus Jack Robinson's field goal and four conversions were too much for Santa Ana" which lost 31-19." Against San Bernardino, Two men, Jack Robinson of Pasadena and Hal Finney of San Bernardino, were directly responsible for all ten touchdowns. Robinson scored three personally and passed to Frank Spratt, Don Winton and Ray Bartlett for three more." Against Ventura 27-6, Jack scored, and again after gallops of 60 and 14 yards. Against LACC 16-0, "Jack Robinson took a lateral from Red Robinson and ran 83 yards for the initial score." Against Compton 20-7, "With both elevens at top peak, one man- Jack Robinson - spelled the difference between the two squads. First Bulldog tally came when Jackie went 15 yards, climaxing a 56 yard drive. Almost immediately, Jack pulled down a Compton aerial, then passed to Red Robinson for 14 yards and a touchdown. Third score was made on a 45-yard gallop from scrimmage by the phenomenal Jackie. Against Phoenix 40-0, "Jack Robinson got off a 65-yard return." Against San Francisco (!) "Jack Robinson was a one-man riot as he scampered 76 yards to a score on the second scrimmage play. Later Jackie went 14 yards for a touchdown and made three conversions for a total of 15 points. Ray Bartlett on a pass from Robinson (made another touchdown). Jackie's ball-toting averaged 14.8." Against Glendale 33-6 "Jack Robinson . scampered 85 yards on the last play of the game to climax the conference season. Jack also made the first score. By winning this game, the Bulldogs tied Santa Monica for the Western conference league crown." Against Cal Tech 39-6, "Jack Robinson and 16 other seniors rang down the curtain on their Pasadena football careers as they walloped cross town rival Cal Tech in the season finale. Robinson's closing chapter was a 104-yard run to the touchdown, climaxing the greatest individual career in jaysee history" after scoring also on a pass. Again, team photos of Jack as Acting Captain and forward of the Varsity basketball team, and group photo, where they were also league champions and stopped the 83-game winning streak of the U.S.C. freshman at 43-36. Great half-page photo of Jackie jumping at the basket in team play, another at the basket in team play. One of the great documents of American amateur sports, the history of the finest J.C. track team, an exhilirating experience to read. The only detailed and reliable source of information about Jackie's last J.C. sports achievements. Bookseller Inventory # 017176
