For many folks, school sports are a big part of their lives and many
others follow the progress of the local teams.
These photos revisit the
glory days some football seasons past in Calhoun County.
Mostly we see pictures of the
football players in action during the game. I wanted to include some
other photos that give an extended picture of the "football game".
