CARLISLE INDIAN SCHOOL The Carlisle Indian School football team ( 1905 ) for enlarged photo of above click here One of the legendary teams of intercollegiate football were the Indians of Carlisle. The tales of their feats, tricks and prowess are endless. The Indians pride and fierce determination enabled little Carlisle, for fifteen years, to take the measure of almost every big university football team. Victories included wins over the then powers of the day Harvard, Yale, Pennsylvania and Princeton. An Army officer by the name of Lieutenant Pratt concieved the idea of a school in the East for Indian boys and girls. Here the Indians would be taught to read and write, speak English and learn a trade. Aided by Carl Schurz, Secretary of the Interior, he pursuaded the Washington authorities to grant use of the Carlisle Barracks located in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Previously these had been used to protect early settlers from Indian attack and, during the Revolutinary War, as a prison for captured Hessian soldiers. In 1879 Richard Henry Pratt founded the Carlisle Indian Industrial School. Beginning play in 1894 they managed only one win against Harrisburg high school. In 1899 Colonel Pratt hired Glenn S. "Pop" Warner away from Cornell University as coach. Warner soon realized the Indians were exactly the kind of players had hoped to coach. He proclaimed to his wife one evening "This is a new kind of team. They're light but they're fast and tricky. Once they get into an open field, they're like acrobats, they're so hard to knock off their feet."

, Olympic and professional athlete. Born in Indian Territory (now Oklahoma), Thorpe was the son of a farmer of Irish and Sac and Fox Indian descent; his mother was part French and part Potawatomi Indian. The tribal name given him at birth was Wa-tho-huck, which meant Bright Path. In 1904, he was sent to the Carlisle Indian School in Pennsylvania. Glenn S. "Pop" Warner, the legendary coach at Carlisle, "discovered" Thorpe in 1907 when he saw him high-jump six feet in street clothing. Thorpe became a star on the Carlisle track team and in 1908, a promising substitute on the football team. Thorpe left Carlisle in 1909 to play baseball for two seasons in the newly formed East Carolina minor league. Unlike other "amateur" athletes who played in the league under aliases, Thorpe used his own name. After returning to Carlisle in 1911, he led the football team to an 11-1 record and was named to Walter Camp's All-American team. Thorpe's most notable achievement came at the 1912 Olympic Games in Stockholm where he won two gold medals. He took four of the five track events in the Pentathlon and scored an astounding 8,412 points in winning the Decathlon, a score that was unsurpassed for fifteen years. King Gustav V of Sweden said to him, "Sir, you are the greatest athlete in the world." Thorpe replied, "Thanks, King."

Thorpe, Jim
Sauk and Fox football and baseball player and Olympic athlete James Francis Thorpe (Wa Tha Huck, Bright Path) was born on May 22, 1887, in Keokuk Falls, south of what is now Prague, Oklahoma, on the Sauk and Fox Indian Reservation. He and his twin brother, Charlie, were baptized on November 17, 1887, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, in what is now Konawa, Oklahoma, their mother's home. Jim was one of eleven children born to Hiram P. Thorpe, a man of mixed Sauk and Fox and Irish ancestry; and Charlotte Vieux, of mixed Potawatomi, Kickapoo, Menominee, and French ancestry, the great-granddaughter of Jacques Vieux, a French fur trader. Jim's father was a horse breeder and trainer and occasional bootlegger. Life was a struggle for the family, and only five of the eleven children grew to adulthood. Jim used to run down the horses on their ranch on the banks of the North Canadian River, an activity that developed his strength and stamina, and helped him hone the athletic skills that would later make him famous. Like many other Indian children, Thorpe went off to Indian boarding schools. He began at the Sauk and Fox Mission School at age six, and went on to Haskell Institute and the Carlisle Indian Industrial School in Pennsylvania. While the government's assimilationist lessons were imperfectly learned—Thorpe never forgot that he was an Indian—he never again lived in an Indian community.

100 Greatest Players of All-Time
#10 Jim Thorpe Jim Thorpe, Halfback
Carlisle Indian School, 1907, 1911-1912 Acknowledged as one of the greatest all-around American athletes ever, Jim Thorpe is most famous for his Olympic achievements in the decathlon and pentathlon and his greatness as a professional football and baseball player. As a college football player, it could be argued that Thorpe, also known as Bright Path, was the greatest individual talent ever taking a team to a title all by himself. It wasn't a given that Thorpe was going to be one of the giants of college football. Glenn "Pop" Warner had no real interest in the five-foot tall Thorpe for the football team and wanted him to run track. After sitting on the bench for the football team in 1907, Thorpe ran track in 1908 before leaving to play baseball in the Carolina League. After going home to Oklahoma after his arm gave out, Warner summoned Thorpe back to Carlisle, Pennsylvania to prepare for the 1912 Olympics. When Thorpe came back, he was the 6-1 and 190 pounds and the perfect athlete for the football team. 25 touchdowns, 198 points and a national title in 1912 later, Thorpe was a college football legend.

Native Americans, American Indians jim thorpe (popular name of (James Francis)Track and field athlete, football and baseball player.
Jim Thorpe ( popular name of (James Francis) Thorpe) 1888 1953 That fall Thorpe made the varsity football team, playing some and starting the next year at half-back. The Carlisle Indians played many of the best collegiate teams, even before Thorpe often beating such teams as Chicago, Harvard, Minnesota, Nebraska, Penn, Penn State, Pittsburgh, and Syracuse. Thorpe was given third team All-American status by Walter Camp in 1908. Following the spring of 1909, when he starred in track, Thorpe left the Carlisle school with two other students to go to North Carolina where they played baseball at Rocky Mount in the Eastern Carolina Association. Thorpe pitched and played first base for what he said was $15 per week. The next year he played for Fayetteville, winning 10 games and losing 10 games pitching and batting .236. These two years of paid performances in minor league baseball would later tarnish his 1912 amateur Olympic status. For two years Thorpe had a rather aimless life while not playing baseball, drifting from village to village in Oklahoma before a former teammate at Carlisle asked him to return to school. He did so in the fall of 1911. Thorpe had matured to almost six feet in height and 185 pounds and led Carlisle to outstanding football seasons in 1911 and 1912. In 1911, against Harvard's undefeated team under the renowned coach Percy Houghton, Thorpe kicked four field goals, two over 40 yards, en route to a stunning 18-15 victory. Carlisle lost only two games in 1911 and 1912, splitting with Penn and Syracuse, while conquering such teams as Army, Georgetown, Harvard, and Pittsburgh. In his last year he scored 25 touchdowns and 198 points and was named All-American by Walter Camp for the second consecutive year.
