"It was interesting hearing about the book 'All Staunch and True: the story of Lawton football from 1902 - 1950' by Dr. O.L. Parsons. Dr. Parsons was the coach on the Washington Elementary football team I played on. He lived down the block and around the corner from me - I think on the northeast corner of 9th and Dearborn. I remember him with respect and fondness for the work he did with our team. He even chartered a bus (my Dad drove it) and took the team to an O.U. football game at the end of our season. What a thrill for a kid that age to be watching Bud Wilkinson coach the likes of Buck McPhail and others.
Hope your Valentines Day is full of music. Georgia
