Send them to me via e-mail along with information on who is in the photo and where (if you still remember). I will add them to the site as time permits - I'm buried in photos yet to work on and add to the site. I'll try to do it right away though. Thanks.

Randy, not a problem, you posted memories of your team with a couple of names and folks seeing your comments might now remember the team and/or the names that you mentioned.

I love the picture. I played for the Hialeah Mustangs, 75lb jv team in 1972 under Bill Lowery and Lou Sellers. I know this comment has nothing to do with this picture, but it does bring back some great memories.

I think I remember Jim Pitisci playing at Wofford.

I played on the 140lb team that year. Several of my team mates went on and played at Hialeah High including Jim Pitisci and Ted Hendricks.

Just saw these pictures today, my big brother Garry sent them to me. Talk about time travel. It's amazing what we forget. I also remember lots of years at St. John's, 95 & 115 lb Optimist football and Benny Babcock Park where I grew up for all practical purposes, I remember Billy and Carey from all of those as well as many others. I don't want to live in the past but it is sure is nice to visit. Thanks!!!
