September 19-Somethin' Challenge: Day 4


4. Did you have a sports hero?  Who was he or she and what was their sport?

I have never really been a sports person, so no one was really a sports hero to me, at least not anything above the local level.  David and I went to school with some terrific football players. Dinky, Jerome, Mitch, and a host of others were the stars in our world.

I tried to find photos of all three of the guys mentioned above, but was only able to find a photo of Dinky. He was an outstanding athlete and was a starter all four years of high school. 

Newspaper snippets found at Newspapers.com. Final image by Suzanne G. McClendon.

    1. Thanks, Ellen. :) 1979 was a great year for our football team.

      It is almost always a great year for the girls' softball team, too. They were/are almost always state champions.

      We were a country school, but they knew how to do the thing to get the points. :)
