|1906-1907 Syracuse Orangemen|
Coach: John A.R. Scott
Team captain George Redlein became ill before the season began, and had to step down from the position (and missed the season). Art Powell assumed the position of captain, and was the star of the team for the season, being the designated free throw shooter and leading scorer.
The team met a tough Yale opponent to open the season, and lost 20-9, with only Max Riehl scoring a field goal (the rest of the Orangemen's points coming from free throws). They easily beat Hamilton College, and then played Colgate. Though the final score didn't indicate it, the game was close with Colgate building a large lead at the end.
The Orange would win their next three games rather handedly with a tenacious defense. Unfortunately they were down to only five players, with no substitutes. As such they decided they could not make any long trips and cancelled their western road trip. Their next game would be a few weeks later, which would be at Colgate at the end of the season, with a chance for revenge against the earlier loss. Unfortunately, it wasn't meant to be as the Orangemen lost again, this time 26-18.
David Lee doubled as the team manager for most the season. However, in order to focus on his academics, he was replaced at the position with one game to go, with Redlein assuming that responsibility.
[Note: missing individual scoring from two games, so all players with exception of Kirchgasser and Fredericks may have additional scoring, noted by the +]
