Players from the ’57 team tell their story

In preparation for writing the last column on the best football for the decade of the 1950s, I asked Jimmy Horton to assemble as many players from the 1957 Heath Springs High School football team as possible.

I wanted them to tell me their story firsthand concerning the last game that Coach R.L. Abstance coached against Springfield for the the state championship.
