The 1899 Wisconsin football team. Pat O’Dea is in the middle row, fourth from the right as you face the photograph. Phil King is standing towards the back in the brimmed cap. Andrew O’Dea is seated in the front row, with the cap and the mustache. Given that the number of men in the photograph matches the number of men in the traveling party, it is possible that this picture was taken en route to the Yale game.

Dave Revsine’s work is filled with jaw dropping, vividly detailed stories about football’s wild, woolly formative years.
