Since it’s the Super Bowl today, it seems fitting to show a few shots about Eatonville’s football team and fields.
The first shot is the 1941 Eatonville football team on the field in what looks like a practice. Helmets and pads have come a long way since the 40s.
The second shot was taken probably in the 1930s. Back then the field was more baseball than football.
The last shot is of a night game in 1957 — surprising similar to the field today, 55 years later.

Is that the Giants, or the Patriots plying against the mighty Cruisers ???
[…] would be impossible to count the number of football games played on the Eatonville football field. Not to mention how many blocks, tackles and touches […]
What are the two openings at the bottom of the stadium?
I’ve only been under there a couple times. Storage mostly now. I’m not sure initially.
Do you know anything about the tunnels under the field?
What field do you mean?
