Mystery to Me Bookstore, Monroe St., Madison
Open to the Public
More than 120 hours of face-to-face interviews were conducted with former players, coaches and supporters of the football program. In addition, more than 30 detailed written responses were received. Countless historical documents, statistics, game reports and photos have been assembled into a 375-page book, with twelve chapters, illustrated with 225 photos.
The book encompasses Edgewood football history from its first year in 1927, under the direction of Coach Willis Jones, through the Earl Wilke era and his 37 seasons at the football helm, and continuing until the present time. However, the authors stress that it is a much larger and more important story than records, statistics and the game itself. It encompasses the history of the historic Edgewood site, life lessons and unbreakable bonds of teammates.
The book is available for sale in Eddie’s Outfitters, the General Office, and at area bookstores. Proceeds benefit the EHS Crusaders Football program.
