Photo Friday - ca 1900 University Of Virginia Football Player

In a recent post I shared a letter from Jim Moran to his father, John W. Moran.  The letter was written in November 1900 from the University of Virginia where Jim was studying law.  He told his father that for the first time in years he missed playing football although it did give him more time to put forth on his studies.

We came across a photograph of a football player from the University of Virginia so Jim obviously had friends on the team even though he no longer played. The photograph was taken at the studio of Rufus Holsinger in Charlottesville.  I've looked at photographs of the early teams that are available online but had no luck in identifying the man in the photograph.  So for now he remains unknown.
