This Day in #ReitzFootball History (Nov. 5): Bad pass gave Panthers 1932 win

While the 2015 edition of the Mighty Panthers added to the rich legacy of Reitz Football, unfortunately there are no more games to look forward to this year. However, with so much tradition, there is plenty to look back on and remember.

With that in mind, ReitzFootball.com proudly presents “This Day in #ReitzFootball History,” a new series that will look back on the games played on a particular day throughout the nearly 100 years of our beloved school.

The Panthers have played 15 games on November 5.

  • Overall: 11-4
  • At Reitz Bowl (1927, 1932, 1938, 1948, 1954, 1965, 1966, 1971, 1976, 1993, 1999): 8-3
  • Away (1921, 1937, 1943, 2010): 3-1

The Blue and Gray Panthers of Reitz High School battled a fighting Purple Flash from Henderson, Ky., on even terms on the Reitz gridiron Saturday afternoon, and then within four and one-half minutes of the final gun caught a lucky break and scored an automatic safety as a result of a bad pass from center which went over the head of Schuette, the Henderson punter.
