• HISTORY OF MOTT FOOTBALL-compiled by Ron Benson.  The following information was located in school annuals and newspapers.  I am not sure how accurate early information is but I have found it very interesting none the less.  Some scores are missing and I will update as I locate new information.  If anyone has any clippings that they would like to share, please contact Ron Benson.  I had the great pleasure in visiting with Coach Russa Osborne and Coach Bob Roy.  They were coaching some of our top teams of yesterday.  It has been a lot of fun documenting "The Boys of Fall" here in our communities.  Enjoy this work in progress!

    1925    3-1       Coach-S.B. Sietz                     

                Mott 12 Elgin 6, Mott 27 Hettinger 7, Lemmon 13 Mott 0, Mott 34 New Leipzig 7.

                Letter winners included Barry, Roberts, Maercklein, Hintz (Captain), Rokusek, MacMillen, Parr, Colgrove, Himes, Boyd, Ulmer, Chalmers, Pearce and Fenniman.  MacMillen at tackle was the outstanding man of the team both on defense and offense-he could play anywhere and do it well.  Hintz had the distinction of being the only player to cross the Lemmon goal until Bismarck beat them by four TDs.  Hintz was particularly adapted to circling the ends-something which most fullbacks cannot do.  He was the fastest man in the backfield, and a fair kicker.         


    1927    4-3       Coach Osborne         

                Mott 14 New Leipzig 13 Scoring-Howard Yonaka and H. Hintz runs plus a safety by Roderick McMillen; Elgin 15 Mott 6 Scoring-McMillen run; New Leipzig 19 Mott 6; Flasher 13 Mott 7 ; Mott 32 Flasher 0 Scoring-Harry Hintz 3 TDs, McMillen 2 TDs (1 TD on a pass interception); Mott 13 Dickinson 0  Scoring-McMillen 2 TDs; Mott 25 Carson 0  "Armistice Day" game-McMillen and Yonaka stood out in their ball toting tactics.  Reich also played a powerful game in the line.   Starters for the 1927 team included left end Chalmers, left tackle Leno, left guard Reich, center Capt. Pierce, right guard Parr, right tackle Ross, right end Boyd, QB Rokusek, right halfback Hintz, left halfback Yonaka, fullback McMillen.  Other players included Serr, Neff Odegaard, Detloff, and Grant.

    1st Round Bye
    2nd Round

                Linton HMB defeated Mott/Regent 30-28 in overtime. 

                This was a great game played by both teams.  We were a little short-handed before we started the game. We lost our right guard to an infraction during the week.  It was the next man up and that was Lance Olson.  And then in the early stages of the game, left guard, Drew Larson sustained a broken arm.  Lee Jahner had to fill in for Drew.  Both young men did a fine job. 

                This was the first and only time I witnessed a forward pass hit the ground first and then bounce up into the opponents arms and refs don’t see it. Our kids stopped when they saw it hit the ground.  The Linton lad just kept running.  Making Memories!!
