1937 Class 1A Texas State Championship Longview Lobos High School vs Wichita Falls High School
About this film
I want to thank David Cotham for allowing this film footage of the 1937 Texas State High School Football Championship game to be shared with the followers of Forgotten Now Found. The film was found by Mr. Cotham and his son Jeremy while doing research for the book Friday Night Howl. It was shot by the family of Frank Lebus, who was the quarterback for the Longview Lobos.

How did you digitize this film?
We are losing more history every day. The longer you wait to digitize that home movie of your grandparents at prom or your mom’s first car the more it degrades. I use the Wolverine 8mm and Super 8 Film Reel Converter Scanner to digitize what you see here.
It is easy to set up and operate and stores the files onto an SD card so you can quickly transfer files to your PC. If you have more than 10 films to scan this is definitely going to be cheaper than paying for someone to do it for you, and you’ll have the results quickly about 30 minutes scan time per standard 8mm reel.
