Archive Information

Over 110 GC games on 16mm from 1948 to 1983 are now cataloged on my site. Click link to see list of games from the 50s, 60s, and 70s available on DVD or CD.  Most all the games after 1983 are readily available on VCR. DVDs or CDs from the mid-80s to present will also be available.  Please email if  you have access to any 16mm film of Gate City games that I am missing.  I also need standard speed VHS copies for many games from the 80s and 90s. Please email if you can help out or if you are interested in getting a copy of available games.

 

Project Information

This page is dedicated to all the former Blue Devil players and coaches who have added their part to the rich tradition; and to the great fans that follow Blue Devil Football "Wherever We Go."

I have now located the scores of EVERY football game that Shoemaker and GCHS have played from the 1931 season up to the present.  I am looking for any newspaper articles, team pictures, or rosters that are not presently included on my site.  If you have any please email a .txt file of the article or a .jpg of the picture to me at my email address.  Please note that pictures must be scanned from glossy prints, not newspaper print.  Any help is greatly appreciated.
