Soaring in Triumph


Sports weren’t integrated in 1931 but that didn’t stop a local team, the Ennis Colored Eagles, from establishing a stellar reputation. The team’s games were often featured in the Ennis Daily News as well as in Dallas papers. Coached by C.C. Stevenson, a Christmas Day battle with the Terrell Colored Tigers gave the s-called “Negro Eleven” a pounding 54-7 win. The Eagles’ star at the time was a player with the last name of Steed, a 230-lb fullback who made a 90-yard run, three 50-yard runs and a 40-yard jaunt during the game.
