  • Claycomb wants Cannelton’s...

    Cannelton is currently selling T-shirts that read: Cannelton football: Undefeated since 1972.
    That’s true, of course, because Cannelton has not fielded a football team since 1971, when the Bulldogs went 0-10.
    But there was a time not long before that when they actually played football and went undefeated.
    That was 1966, when they went 8-0 to win the Pocket Athletic Conference title for the first time since 1942.
    That 1966 team finished the season with a 29-25 win over South Spencer. But most of the Bulldogs’ games were not that close.
