A black and white photograph of Bethune-Cookman's football team posed on the steps of Cookman Hall. The exterior of the building and the columns can be seen in the image. There are two men standing in front of the columns on either side of the photographer; these are presumed to be the coaches. The players are wearing their uniforms, knee pads, and shoes. In the first row is a student who is holding a football; though the image is badly damaged, the year, 1927, can be seen. Edward Rodriguez, Mary McLeod Bethune's foster son, is seated in the first row second from the left. The photographer of the image is unknown.
