The Blakely Bears were one “of a kind ”

  • I had the privilege of being the photographer for the Blakely Bears from 1960 thru 1969. It was a memorable time for me–shooting pictures of all the great players and championship games–what a time.

    Coach Henzes had the football bus pick me up at the house a lot of times. He always made me feel like part of the team; he was so considerate.

    I also have a wonderful friend, Jack Henzes, who has always been so kind to me especially now that I’m not feeling well. He’s always there to pick me up.

    I would like to thank all the players and especially Coach Henzes for all the wonderful memories. The Blakely Bears were one “of a kind.” My very best to all!
