The Development of Football at Wisconsin State University - La Crosse
The purpose of this study was to trace the development of football at Wisconsin State University - La Crosse from it's conception in 1911 to the present. Records and statistics were omitted from the study due to necessary restrictions as to the length of the paper. The history of football at Wisconsin State University - La Crosse was arranged in four different phases. The first phase was involved with the period of time when the school was known as the Normal School. The second phase started when the Normal School became a State Teachers College and the third phase had it's conception when all of the teachers colleges became state colleges. The fourth and shortest phase is the period of time when the state colleges became state universities. This phase was barely touched upon because of the short existence of the state university system. This study attempted to find out why football was started, what kept it moving, and why it became the major sport that it is today at Wisconsin State University in La Crosse. The procedure that was used in the study was a narrative approach to the facts, with pertinent incidents brought in wherever necessary.
