27 footballers report for first practice session

Aug. 16-19, 1966 Head football coach, Fletcher Fields, ran his squad through it’s first two-a-day practice for around two hours Monday morning. Twenty-seven boys had reported for the light workouts through the first three days. Fields said the boys were not in as good condition as he had hoped. “I guess it’s because they are young and a little inexperienced. We have taken it kind of easy so far but are ready now to start on the rough stuff,” Fields said. Fields is having to regroup his forces after losing 12 seniors to graduation last year. He has seven seniors as the backbone of this year’s young team. Thirteen juniors and seven sophomores reported for practice. All boys interested in playing on the football B team of Brady High School are asked to meet at the Field House at 7 p.m., Friday. B team Coach Lesley Fisher will meet with the boys and hand out physical examination blanks. Physicals will be given Monday at 5 p.m. Players reporting were: Seniors’Barry Myrick, James Mask, Wayne Moore, Pat Elliott, Johnny Sanders, Chuck Priess and Jimmy Jackson. Juniors’Steve Peel, Mike Pellizzari, Steve Miller, Raymond Lafuente, Puddin Jones, Dick Calliham, Alton Bradshaw, Donny Kyzar, Tommy McSwain, Jimmy Hensley, Mike Rice and Dennis Snodgrass. Sophomores’Royce Lewis, Leroy Johnson, Mike Leifeste, Doug Snowden, Bennie Galindo, Paul Benavides and Jerry Alexander. *** Punctual band has punctured plans James Mallow, high school band director, insists that his students be at his appointed meeting places exactly on time. He’s a stickler when it comes to punctuality but he’s not too sharp on mechanical forethought. The Bulldog Band was scheduled to leave the BHS parking lot for band camp at Garner State Park at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday morning, not 9:29 and not 9:31. With all the members loaded at 9:30 Wednesday, one of the buses was found to have a flat on an inside tire. About an hour later they finally got rolling’until they reached the edge of the parking lot. The fan blade on the other bus went to pieces there. The buses finally left the city limits at noon’that’s two and one-half hours late, Mr. Mallow. *** BHS students attend council workshop Johnny Sanders, Dayton Archer and Reva Hargrove, accompanied by high school principal, Boyd Hunt, spent July 31-Aug. 5 attending a student council workshop at the University of Houston. Workshop consultant was Miss Mary Alice Noonan, Dean of Girls at Luther Burbank High School in San Antonio. Sanders will be the president of the BHS student council this fall. Archer will be vice-president and Miss Hargrove will be secretary. *** Diane King, majorette with Tech band Diane King, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Steve King, will be a majorette for the Texas Tech Red Raider Band this year. A junior, she will be performing her second year with the organization. The band will make two out- of-town performances this fall appearing at the Tech-TCU game in Fort Worth and the Tech-Rice tilt in Houston. The more than 200 members of the Tech marching band open practice sessions on Sept. 16 and will open the season on Sept. 24 at the Tech-Texas game. Head majorette of the band is Chris Adrean of Lubbock. Other majorettes are Dyanne Curry of Sudan, Sandy Parmer and Judy Stewart, both of Lubbock, Donna Snyder of Dallas, Pattie Porter of Sundown and Brenda Curbo of Lubbock. *** Allens return from vacation Mr. and Mrs. George Allen of Doole have returned from a ten day vacation with their daughter, Mrs. Edwin Sandige, Mr. Sandige, Deborah and Charles of Rockdale. Highlights of their stay in California were the Wax Museum of Hollywood Stars, Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, Universal City in Hollywood, Marine Land and a stop at the beach so the children could take a “dip” in the Pacific Ocean. On the way home, stops were made at the Grand Canyon, the Painted Desert and the Petrified Forest all in Arizona. They visited briefly with Mrs. Allen’s nephew, Glen Ray Laws and family in Scottsdale, and also with another nephew, Wyndell Martin and family in Bloomington, Calif. *** Mrs. Isenhower to head “Friends” The Friends of the Library held their quarterly meeting recently in the Library, at which time they selected a slate of officers for the oncoming year’s work. New officers are Mrs. Wesley Isenhower, president; Mrs. Frank Roddie, Jr., vice-president; Mrs. Richard Winters, secretary-treasurer. Mrs. Les Townsend was appointed to serve in the book selection committee and Mrs. Sam McAnally as Story Hour chairman.
