So many fond memories of football and Menlo, 67-68, with all the "guys" plus Bill and Mike. Can still hear Bo chastising Mike with "Hey, Bettega, why the hell don't you throw it a little harder next time!!!" To which Mike would respond with OK coach & throw it so hard that it could cause injury on the receiving end. So glad I wasn't a receiver, it was enough to have your bell rung a few too many times on the line, let alone from "Friendly Fire".

Congrats to two deserving guys. Bill Egelston
