At Reilly Field in Salem, Ohio

January 1, 1923


The strongest conflict that Max had with his father was over his football career. He was one of the biggest boys in Salem, playing center on defense and offense, and was considered one of the finest linemen in Columbiana County. However, his parents, William and Mollie, were terrified that Max would get injured playing and refused to watch him play.
At six-foot-two and 148 pounds, Fisher was one of the biggest boys in Salem and excelled on the football field, earning a scholarship to the Ohio State University.
