Red Devil Football Star Ruby Vale Carried Off of the Field in Losing Effort in Shortened Season Finale at Bucknell

Thu., Nov. 28, 1895

Dickinson football traveled to play Bucknell only to be walloped 28-0. Due to lack of funding in the athletic department's treasury, this would be the final game of season. The one bright spot of the game, and perhaps the season, was when Red Devil player Ruby Vale was carried off of the field "by the spectators as a testimony of their appreciation of his heroic efforts in a losing cause against Bucknell."
