Top 50 San Diego High School Basketball Players

Three Colts made the list of The Top 50 San Diego CIF Basketball Players, issued Wednesday by the San Diego Hall of Champions.  You'd have to be Bill Center '63 or Joe Naiman '82 to be good enough to name the three.  Luckily they're both on the committee to name the Top 50 San Diego CIF BASEBALL Players, which they will do this Spring.  Click HERE to read the Union-Tribune article.  Click HERE to see the list.

Fill 'Er Up?

I'm not exactly sure how he got into it, but for the last seven years Dave Folck '67 has been restoring vintage gas pumps.  (NOW I know why he was so excited about San Diego Photo #4 on my web site)  Click HERE to check out some of his work.

Viva Las Vegas

Valerie Hood Kennedy '68 (that's not her picture) wrote to tell me how wonderful I was and that she still sees her high school pals Cheryl Knowles Shelton and Karla Hilger Medlock, as well as her Horace Mann PE Coach Ms. Wangard (THAT's her picture).  THAT sent me back to a weekend in 1967 (I think) when Ms. Wangard and I were two of four people in a cramped Mustang headed for Las Vegas.  Click HERE to go to the Ron Davidson link on the Faculty Obituary Page and read about our trip.  Ron was also a PE Coach at Horace Mann.  He died in Vietnam a year after this photo was taken.  I think you'll enjoy what folks had to say about him, if you haven't already seen this page.
