Emory History Minute: Pushball

 

To celebrate Emory's 175th anniversary, Emory Report brings you a look at little-known facts about the university.  From 1923-1955, Pushball was a tradition on campus battled out between the freshmen and sophomores. It was played with a 180 pound leather ball and 25 people per team on the field with the goal to push the ball into the other team's end zone. It was banned in 1955 because it caused too many injuries. Pushball was brought back for one day only as part of Emory's 175th anniversary celebration. To see the entire collection of Emory History Minutes, log on to Emory Report's website at http://bit.ly/emoryhistoryminutes.
