My grandfather is Kenneth H Mateer (front row, first person). He went on to coach football at Coatesville HS and Malvern Prep.

Thanks for the picture - R. Krieger is my father, Richard D. KREIGER. We have a picture of him in his high school football uniform, which his namesake Richard D. Kreiger III now has. He played for Shippensburg for one year, then received a scholarship to play at Bucknell University. He did not graduate from Bucknell, I believe the depression intervened in his education (that and the fact that my grandfather told me that my father was more interested in the girls than football!
