Just an Observation

  • No tale just an observation. Coach Henzes was a great inspiration for me even, as an undersized running back. He encouraged everyone to do better. I also loved my teammates including Kokomo and Bezek. I often thought of all of them as I moved around the world. When I retired last year I mentioned a handful of people including Papa Bear who had influenced me in life. Although I haven’t been called Trixie in many years I will always remember my time as a Blakely Bear. Best wishes on your great effort. My brother Dan wishes he could have finished as a bear but he did well as a Cougar. By the way the class of 61 had a great record. we don’t know what happened that next year!!!
