Rick Thompson was the Sul Ross campus cop in the late sixties. There never was a nicer guy than he seemed to be.

On October 12, 1956, Life Magazine sent a reporter and photographer to the Paint Creek-Benjamin game as part of an article on Texas 6 man football.

Leman, did you know about this one? I don't know yet what issue it was in.

Yes, the images were available to view online at one point on Life's website. Seemed to me to be more JR High pics than HS pics if I remember. I will see if I can find them again.

I do not know if they made it into an issue

Paint Creek's Coach at the time was an Ex-NFL player JC O'Neil, he did a thesis paper on six-man football in college and wrote a few articles for magazines about 6man as well.

He was also killed in a car wreck in 1958 near Waller. He had quit coaching earlier that year to go into business in Haskell.

The one that may have slipped away........

So a funny thing happened to me last month. There I was in the middle of a little league base ball game in Troy Texas minding my own business when BAM! I hear the words Retired and Air Force. So being the vet that I was I piped up for a chat with this older fellow. It turns out he was in the last class to graduated from Turnersville.

He said after he graduated he went on to join the Air Force as a crypto guy. He eventually retired and settled down in Rosebud. You could tell he still had a passion for the game. He mentioned numerous times the ass whippings he and the Buffalos handed out. Talked about how he carried on into his late 40s playing sports. Mostly softball.

I passed hes info along, but I think from a fubar it was lost. Hopefully I will run across him,sad thing is I can even remember his name.

Kenneth Barron is his name. Finally got his number back. Had to call a friend of a friend of a sister-n-laws friend to get it.

I passed it on to CP.

When I coached at Novice, we had a banner hanging on the wall saying that our girls had been the basketball state champions. The date pre-dated the UIL sanctioned girls state championships. Who would know what league existed for girls before the UIL and if any records are available?
