“Evansville’s Reitz high school gridders, seeking a Southern Indiana Athletic conference championship, turned on the steam here this afternoon to rumble over Princeton on a slippery field, 32-0.

[Wayne] Crosser, Reitz right half, was individual star of the game, making three touchdowns [on 7-, 1- and 2-yard runs].”

– Evansville Courier & Journal, Nov. 17, 1935

1985: East Central 18, Reitz 17 (Class 4A Regional Championship)

East Central’s Casey Boland nailed a 30-yard field goal with 31 seconds remaining that sealed the home team’s fate. It capped an incredible turnaround season. The Panthers, after an 0-5 start, won their next six games and finished the season at 6-6.
