Living near Rochester high school I was a constant observer of the football
training activities. The coaches worked hard and at different times of the day
and evening. Coach Mark Miller's windstar was parked at high school just about
every night. If an athlete needed and wanted extra instruction I am sure that he
would get it from the staff. Due to the hard work and conditioning their program
is a huge success.

This is our gift to all of you.
My walking partner, Wolfie and I were very happy to have observed your
achievements. Team, you have worked very hard for the last three-half months
and had a very successful season. We like to thank you very much for your
great season and wish you the very best in the years ahead.

Wolfie and I hope that will like our gift to you.

I was a Rochester high school world war II (1942) dropout. It took two months
to talk my parents into signing the enlistment papers. I enlisted into the navy on
January 5, 1943 at the age of 17. I retired from the army 31 January 1963 and
moved  back to my hometown of Rochester. I have always been poor with
grammar so please feel free to correct me if you find any mistakes.
