Glory Days

From an old copy of Dave Campbell's Texas Football which was recovered, I think, next to the the Dead Sea Scrolls.

It is a well known fact that the Green kid that played for the Bulls that year was enhancing his "on the field" performance by the use of steroids. This discovery after the season caused Green to lose an athletic scholarship to Ball State University.

By the way, Jerrell Rutherford is still coaching over in Springtown and has been there for about fifteen years or so.

Wow, you played with the great Kyle Clifton? He went on to a NFL career with the NY Jets. Pretty cool.

I love looking @ the height and weight of the players in the 70's (my era), especially the linemen. The Steelers & Cowboys defensive lines averaged about 265-270 lbs. Thats nothing for HS lines just 30 years later.

Somethin' doesn't smell right.

Actually, that was the '79 football season. Don't remember what the Bulls record was that year, but do know Decatur beat them pretty bad, won the district championship and was beaten by Breckenridge in the Bi-district game in Wichita Falls. Also, Curtis Rhine ended up starting at QB for the Eagles that year and beat out Kyle Clifton for 1st team all ditrict at QB.

All of the Decatur players listed, except Bill Holloway and Larry Gage are 1980 graduates they were my class mates. What is really interesting is even though none are professional athletes. Most of them grew into great men, Fathers, business men and community leaders. I even had the privilege of having one of them as an employee. I don’t know the players from Bridgeport but I suspect the same is true for them. For a little more trivia do a Google search for Joe Armes, you will find he is very much involved in professional sports just not as a player. Atkinson was a great coach, teacher, and most importantly example. I don't have any idea what his win-loss record was, but almost 30 years after he taught me he still stops to visit and always ask about my children. Man I hope we have this caliber of men spending time with our kids now. Thanks for the stroll down memory lane Barry.
