Who knows the compelling reasons why a young athlete would go out for basketball – or wrestling? Visit Duane Roberts’ recollection of that decision under Bill Burrows’ tutelage. “Bill asked why I did not wrestle instead of playing basketball... Bill told me, ‘look at all the different holds you learn in Wrestling’ … ‘what good would that do me?’… his reply: ‘have you ever had a date???’”
Speaking of wrestling holds, here was Frank Martinez’ sure-fire escape, as described by Gabby Martinez: “…we all remember Peach Pomade …imagine attempting a wrestling hold on someone who has his hair coated in it.  [Frank] would squirt out of any real attempts to hang on to him. I never beat him once.”
And we’re still waiting for the rest of the story from Tim Rivera or Wilma Meder on Patsy Suazo’s page: “Patsy was my high school prom date… Wilma, do you remember that night at the A&W Root Beer stand? The memories are still great.”
These are a few entries. We encourage classmates to read the entries so far, and to post additional memories – whether funny, tender, happy, or sad – of all our departed classmates (see below), with special attention to those who don’t yet have an entry.
