I should have bookmarked this page before so I could have commented sooner than now.
Thanks Vance for delivering the trophy to me. You're better than FedEx!! I have returned the trophy to the Class of 63. It turned out that this particular trophy was the one awarded to Bill Todd who was Coach that year. Each player on the team received an identical trophy. I saw several of these players at our 50th Anniversary Reunion and most, I think, still had their trophy with their name at the top.
Bill Todd passed away a few years back, so apparently one of his family members found it, and added it to the yard sale where Vance found it, purchased it, and was so thoughtful to return it to us.
Thanks again, Vance !!
I was a member of the Class of 63 and also the creator of the website for our class. www.Kingsbury63.com I'm really amazed to read this and would love to recover the trophy for my class. I'm sure Kingsbury would be glad to have it back in their trophy case as well. Vance, would you contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Several of the names on the trophy are 62-63 players who still live in Memphis. Thanks so much for posting this!! ~ Glenn Miller
