Number 52 is my fathers

Number 52 is my fathers number and this picture with my father in his football jersey and outfit brought tears to my eyes. I loved him very much and when I saw this, it was very touching. I want to thank this website for doing such a nice job. Sincerely, Susan Marsh Nothnagel.

1937 football team

My father-in-law, Victor Saviskas #58 above, remembers your father from high school. Vic was interested in locating any articles about the football team during that time frame, especially anything about his glorious high school football days! Would you have anything that might be of interest or any suggestions on where we might locate 1937 era newspaper sports sections for that area. Vic remembers the newspapers as the Morning Inquiry and the Bulletin. Thank you for any assistance.
