After last season, it would be impossible to have any worse of a season, so things looked up for the Tigers.  Evan O. Williams was in his fifth season as coach.  Otto Eggebrecht, in his second year as the assistant coach, took care of the backfield.

South began the season the same way last season ended, with a shutout loss.  West only managed a few points, but still won 6-0. 

South took on Central for the Tigers second homecoming game.  Unfortunately, the shutouts continued as Central seemed to score at will, winning 25-0.

South broke their losing streak when they played Edison.  South scored 20 points while shutting out the Tommies.

North and Marshall both shut out the Tigers.  North won 13-0.  Marshall won 12-0.

The season ended against Roosevelt for the Teddies Homecoming.  South played a tough defense, but so did Roosevelt.  Neither team scored. The game ended in a 0-0 tie. 

The team improved to a 1-4-1 record this season.  They were outscored, but by a respectable 20-56, but they were still shut out five times

Leonard Swanbeck was the lone Tigers to be named to the All-Conference squad as the center.
