Byron Shewman’s story was right on about us not having the best sprinters, but we had the league’s best hurdler and top field athletes. In the 100- and 220- yard dashes we always managed a second and a third, and we won the Metro Conference in 1968.
I played for Coaches Teagle, Lusky, and Evans, and the head football coach was Bud Aubuchon. I will never forget Coach Teagle. He had a way of motivating people. If he were alive today, he would be making money giving motivational speeches around the country. I know it was Coach Teagle and Coach Aubuchon that got me the one award that was given yearly to one person in the senior graduating class. And that award is Athlete-Scholar-Citizen.
Coach Teagle was a big part of my life in high school. The article brought back many fine memories of old I.B. and of MVHS. Thanks for the article.
