Football -vs- Tulsa East Central
Upset Favored East Central
|I can't find
a previous varsity football game -vs- East Central in my 2003-2011
cvilleok archives. I do have a 1958 CHS Football Schedule (below)
that shows Collinsville traveled to East Central in Oct. 1958.
My brother Phil says CHS played EC in 1964 and 1965. Don't know
about any other years ... and no time for research.-- Ted 10/17/2012
Update: Found in the 1960 CHS Yearbook that Collinsville beat
East Central 28-0 in 1959. The Cardinals also beat Owasso, Jenks
