This is a mere sample of the photos and newspaper clippings that my dad kept. He was an assistant coach for the years I played youth football. My brother Miles played on one of the teams. There were also cousins and step-siblings who either played or were cheerleaders at different times. I was amazed and moved by the sheer volume of items my dad saved for me. The handwriting on some of the items above is his. I remember him telling me that coaching those pee wee football teams (and baseball teams) was a wonderful time in his life. He was there for everything, and the memories I have are happy ones. In time, in this particular post, I will add many more scans of these football days. When there are updates, I will feature them in the right sidebar.
Wish I knew more about these pictures. I see Uncle Watty (Watt Espy). I guess that it's 1937 (he was born in '33), and that this likely a preschool or kindergarten class. I can't exactly recognize the buildings or area, but it resembles what the Headland, AL town square might have looked like then.
