When did we adopt our current school colors?

Blue and White. Those are the only school colors many of us have ever known. But when did the school begin using those colors? In the 40s, the powerhouse Edgewood football team, trounced their neighborhood rivals, wearing their black and gold uniforms. Why black and gold? One possible theory is that the team’s head coach, the legendary coach Herb McCracken, was formerly the assistant coach at Army. Their colors were, you guessed it, black and gold. What were the school colors when you went to Edgewood? Ask your older relatives? Help us find out when Edgewood adopted these colors and why?
