The Rutherford College Ramblers – 1929 Football Team. In 1928, the team lost the State Junior College Championship by only one touchdown. The 1929 schedule was more difficult than the previous year, but the season was considered successful. In 1930, the Ramblers were the North Carolina State Football Champions.
